GREEN SEED is a project framed within European Voluntary Service action developed in the province of León, specifically in a
district called Villomar, by Ecoperia organization where 3 european volunteers with enterpreneur spirit, from France,
will take active part during 8months in our school of agroecological training guided to professionalism of social exclusion
collectives in order to their subsequent entry into working life in enterprises related to agroecology sector or even their selfemployment around social enterprise.
The main activity of this EVS is the involvement of volunteers in different activities that pursue setting agroecological training as a
possible and viable way of employability of the social exclusion collectives we work with: young people who had finished drug
sobering up programmes, immigrants without resources, people below poverty line, battered women, etc. Aiming to create a selfsustaining Ecosystem that sets up a base for future similar social character cultivations and farming and is an example of good
practices and inclusion of socially excluded groups.
The volunteers will give support to the agroecological production of the school, will collaborate in the social area and participate in
the socio-labor entry of the students, always with the aim of facilitating help to young people with less opportunities by means of
developing sustainable and respectful environment initiatives.
One of the main results we hope with this project, is that these EVS volunteers, have a truly unique experience and a process of nonformal and informal learning, where they could become agents of social change through social entrepreneurship, once they´ll return to their country origin. In turn, during the course of the activity, participate in group work to support entrepreneurship programs, sharing experiences and actions with local young people who are opted for self-employment as alternative.
