From Europe to Vallecas (empowering people)
Start date: Aug 1, 2016,
End date: Sep 30, 2017
The project we present offers the possibility to 7 European volunteers to participate in the social and educational activities that Coordinadora Infantil y Juvenil de Tiempo Libre de Vallecas develops. The service will be carried out from the 1st of October 2016 to the 31st of July 2017 (10 months). The participants will be from 7 different countries: France, Italy, the Netherlands, Romania, Hungary y United Kingdom. The project is divided in two parts. On the one hand the volunteers support the free time activities and school support activities in Vallecas. On the other hand they support the activities of the center Europa Joven Madrid where they promote and inform about the opportunities of Europe for youngsters. In addition, one of the volunteers will dedicate most of the time in our office EJM supporting European activities and daily work. The volunteers are going to carry out a wide range of activities e.g. motivate to read, school support, crafts and free time activities, excursions, summer camps etc. in the organizations of Vallecas. In addition they lead conversations workshops and they prepare different informational and promotional events in the center Europa Joven Madrid. The activities will be adapted to the needs and interests of the volunteer. It will foster their creativity and initiative to propose their own activities. We expect to creat an impact at local level mainly on our clients, specially children and families of Vallecas and also young people who we take care of in Europa Joven Centre in European issues and resources. In the long term, we think that we will bring opportunities and improvements to our target group which we are addressed to, about our rol as european citizenship. That means that we will contribute to European awareness allows them to access to material, socials and social particpation in Europe.
