The number of volunteers who will participate in this project is 8, 4 girls and 4 boys with different backgrounds and profiles, and highly motivated to develop various activities with the people from Alba Association.
The methodology used to ensure the success of the project will be:
Selection of volunteers taking into account their interests and motivations,
Good communication with partners
Preparation and following of volunteers at different moments; departure, arrival, during the project and final evaluation.
I parallel to this, we will follow their learning process, language training, activities done and mentoring.
The impact will be at three levels:
Personal: for the participants themselves, for each participant the impact itself will be different, personal and not transferable. And, for sure, this impact will be transmitedd to their orignal places.
People from the Alba Association: For those of Alba Association is always very helpful to share with European volunteers difernent moments and experiences. Relationships for people in Alba, stays for long! In the hall of the organizations's main building, we have a european map with a photo from each volunteer we have hosted and there is always someone looking at it and remembering histories.
Local: Tárrega is a small town where everybody knows each other, the Association Alba is present in all events and socially active in a city-level, and therefore, European volunteers become part, easily, of the landscape of this city.
Volunteers who had participated before in other projects said: "with just few days, we feel in Tárrega, like in home"
