EVS opportunities in promoting Outdoor green jobs for young people
Start date: Jan 5, 2015, End date: Jan 4, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Our initiative is aligned with European Parliament objectives stated in the 2020 Strategy where recomendations are made to national and European Commission to invest in supporting sport and outdoor activities as a measurefighta against obesity and its effects on health and development of children and young people of EU. 8 volunteers from 6 countries(Spain,Turkey, Jordan, Italy, Portugal and Bulgaria)will do a 7 months service in Oradea Romania under the supervision and with support from a team of professional and passionate youth workers. The team is formed by people with years of experience in training in Non formal education, young people with experience in managing YiA projects and passionate about outdoor. EVS volunteers are young people with fewer opportunities(long time unemployment and economic issues), interested in developing new skills and finding a job in the Outdoor domain, or even becoming entrepreneurs. ALC team has conceived a plan to train, offers support, and give young volunteers practical experience in all the stages of concept/preparation/running and evaluating outdoor activities. Echipa ALC a conceput un plan prin care voluntarii EVS sunt formati si apoi pregatiti de traineri, respectiv sunt supervizati si indrumati pentru a experimenta practic toate etapele de concepere, pregatire, promovare, derulare si evaluare a unei activitati outdoor.
