Jóvenes y Europa
Start date: May 1, 2015,
End date: Mar 31, 2016
Our project is built around promotion and encouragement of activism, volunteering and youth participation. The volunteers participated in all the activities, services and initiatives our organization carries out. European Information Service for youngsters, Youth Housing Service, Poject ¡Participa!, Health group od the CMX, Espaciu Antragal (exhibition room), Conversation groups in various languages, trainings, as well as making one-time events (empowermen training, youth parlament,etc.) where they were able to contribute with their ideas. They also have the opportunity to develop their own initiatives or create their personal project.
This project had a duration of 9 months and they made the mentioned activities in Federación de Asociaciones Juveniles de Gijón (Conseyu de Mocedá de Xixón - CMX) and in the municipality of Gijón (Asturias, Spain).
In june 2015 we recieved two volunteers, one girl from Romania and a boy from Portugal who are 24 and 23 years old.
During the project we utilized a mehtodology of participation: the volunteers were able to form and work on their proper volunteering, during which they also were able to gather knowledge by developing their own autonomy not just at work but on a personal level through a process of non-formal education.
With this project we seek to make an impact on our local community not only through our volunteers and by spreading the EVS and Erasmus+ programs, but also to promote tolenrance and multicultural environment to our youth, and by promoting their active participation in building and streghtening European citizenship
