Start date: Apr 1, 2015,

“EVS DOCG – Development Openmindedness Change Growth” is a EVS long term Project taking place in Vicenza, an Italian city in Venice area. It foresees that four young people - two Spanish, one French and one Slovenian - spent 12 months volunteering in Social Cooperative Insieme and in Social Cooperative Tangram (that will be both hosting organisations), which daily deal with environmental and social issues, promoting with their work social inclusion and European citizenship awareness. Then, the Project involves Insieme as Project coordinator and hosting organisation, Tangram (Italy, hosting organisation), Fundacion Paideia Galicia (Spain, sending organisation), Zavod Voluntariat (Slovenia, sending organisation), Ayuntamiento De Alaquàs (Spain, sending organisation) and CIDJ (France, sending organisation) as Partners. The Project aims at strengthening and further improving the hosting activities of Insieme and Tangram, putting together their networks, their initiatives and competences, in order to better exchange approaches, methods, knowledge and culture with European youth; the final aim being to enrich the hosting organisations culture, providing new opportunities also addressed to the local community.
The activities proposed to the volunteers concern the following areas: - service in the live-in community; - service in the Cooperative “social bar” and kitchen; - eventual support during the organisation of events linked to the issues promoted (environment, recycle, sustainable development, critical consumption, de-growth, social inclusion, volunteering, etc.); - sensitisation, educational and training sessions, also using job as educational channel with disadvantaged target groups; - support in reconditioning activities; support in sales, promotional and animation activities; support in the activities linked to youth projects.
