Four seasons - EVS experience in Finland
Start date: Aug 1, 2014,
End date: Nov 30, 2015
Youth Centre Villa Elba coordinates EVS project Four Seansons- EVS experience in Finland. This project will host young people from Austria, Spain, Slovakia, Italy and Germany to work with local young people and children. Our area is rural and people mostly lives in small communities with few possibilities to have intrenational contacts. By having international volunteer working together with local people we hope to make multiculturality and internationality as a natural part of young peoples everyday life.
The idea behind the project is to engourage local (young) people for intercultural communication and show them the possibilities of Erasmus+. The volunteers will be active members of the working community and are also encouraged to bring their own culture and ideas for making the interaction work in both ways and to make all parties also valor their own culture and values. The volunteers live and work in the same conditions as locals do and get to know thoroughly the everyday life in their hosting communities. We also want to give volunteers from our partner countries a possibility to learn more and get more (work) experience by participating this project.

Our project meet the programme priorities as we work with such young people who does not have other possibilties to gain international experiences. We also encourage young people to actively participate in the society and to take responsibility for themselves and people nearby. Voluntary work is an excellent way to support young people to gain more initiative, to become more indepent and at the same time develop their idea and thoughts about european citizenship. The idea is also to bring internationality into the everyday life of our local youngsters in order to make multiculturality a visible and natural part of their everyday life.
Inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities is our main priority, as trough offering young people a chance to gain new experiences and finding their strenghts we can help them them to overcome different kind of obstacles and support them in finding creative paths into adulthood.
