The project “Get Up” is bilateral European Voluntary Service project between sending and coordinating organization from Italy and hosting organization from Jordan.
The objectives of project are:
• To encourage intercultural dialogue between youth from Italy and Jordan;
• To develop cooperation between organizations from Middle East and Europe;
• To enhance youth mobility in Italy by providing European Voluntary Service in another country;
• To promote healthy lifestyle for young female in Jordan;
• To develop EVS volunteer's personal and professional skills what would increase their employability in future.
During the project, WE Center in Jordan will host volunteer from Italy for six month period – from October 2015 till March 2016. Volunteer will work in Palestinian refugee camps (near Jerash) and in Sahab and lead sport activities for females and children.
Refugee camps and Sahab are very conservative and are not exposed to Western culture therefore it is expected that daily volunteer’s activities will encourage intercultural dialogue in local community. It is expected, that project will not only promote healthy lifestyle but encourage young people interest about other cultures and teach some basic skills of English.
Volunteer will also organize Erasmus+ promotion activities and inform local youth how to take part in mobility activities, what is EVS etc. Volunteer will also promote voluntary works as a tool to develop their personal and professional skills.
