"Healthy Bay" is a long term EVS project which involves three volunteers and four organisations: OpportUNITY, which acts as a coordinating and hosting organisation, Spain, Italy and France which act as sending organisations. The project will take place between May 2016 and April 2018 and involve three volunteers with fewer opportunities from Spain, Italy and France. They will spend 3 months in Whitley Bay, United Kingdom.The aims and objectives of the project are: - promoting personal and professional development- promoting healthy lifestyle and respect of the environment- promoting multiculturalism, tolerance, solidarity and mutual respect in order to create an open minded and integrated society- promoting European values- stimulating creativity and sense of initiative- promoting volunteering as a way to empower activism among young people and providing them with the skills required by the labour market in order to face unemployment and reduce poverty, allowing volunteers to spend three months of their life playing an active role in society, achieving personal and professional fulfilment.Volunteers will be engaged in the daily work of the organisation and they will have the possibility to develop their own project. Using practical experience and non-formal education, EVS volunteers will: - participate in various forms of voluntary activities (planning, delivering and evaluating workshops, trainings, language classes in our training centre in Whitley Bay and in collaboration with local partners, colleges and universities; peer group discussions; youth initiatives)- express their personal commitment and creativity in their daily life and voluntary activities- be involved in activities for the benefit of the general public, by organising and participating in local events in order to improve the wellbeing of the Whitley Bay community and the quality of activities in the North East“Healthy Bay” will have a strong impact on the EVS volunteers, on the local community of Whitley Bay and at the international level. The EVS volunteers will be equipped with the soft skills and knowledge they need to have to be competent workers in the labour market. They will know more about volunteering, recycling, sustanaibility, ecology, healthy lifestyle. They will become more tolerant, respectful and active. At the local level, the direct contact with foreign volunteers helps develop the local community’s understanding of diversity, mutual respect, democracy, and active citizenship. It will improve the wellbeing of Whitley Bay community. The desired impact at the international and European level is the promotion of ERASMUS+ and EVS programmes, its aims and objectives, and encourage volunteers to multiply these skills and knowledge by applying to new ERASMUS + projects.
