This project aims to give volunteers and youth workers an experience of European Voluntary Service, sharing of beste practices and promoting intercultural learning. The participants will gain knowledge, skills and attitude for life from this project and will get opportunity to work with children (often disadvantaged) and young people. Responsibilities are given to the volunteer, and through daily interaction with other (EVS) volunteers and living together with them, the experience is being shared and learned from. The project will start from the 1st of January 2015.
We are sure that this project will achieve a wide spread multiplying effect on other young people, partners and coordinating country which will bring forth a sustainable and long lasting impact! The impact on the partner organisations is also very evident. We see possibilities of stratagic partnerships, new EVS opportunities, Exchanges and a learning experience in youth work. Thus the youth worker/leader/ volunteer who go back to their local organisation(level) can be a very important resource for initiating and promoting the possibilities of organizing trans-national group exchange and can be an instrument in setting up similar concrete work in their own organizations.
