Based on Youth in Action program Annual Priorities for 2013 this project is mainly targeted at young people suffering the consequences of unemployment and aimed to offer them the possibility of improving their skills (social, linguistic, professional…).This EVS project will enable 28 young volunteers aged from 18-30 from Italy, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Poland, Spain and Sweden to be engaged in voluntary service projects in Moldova for 9 and 12 months. Taking part in the project will give to young people another perspective of their life, raise their self-esteem and self-confidence, contribute to developing their skills and competencies, discover other cultures and on this way to increase their future employability. Majority of the volunteers involved will be young people with fewer opportunities. We will offer this unique opportunity to young people who are coming from difficult social and cultural backgrounds, with economical or family lacks, with low level of education and almost no international experience.This project also aims at raising awareness of Eastern Partnership Window and of the value and importance of volunteering as a form of active engagement and as a tool to develop or improve competencies for personal, social and professional development. We hope we can motivate the local youth to be active within the Youth in Action programme and to become EVS volunteers and / or develop some local or international projects themselves. The volunteers will get many important skills and experiences according to the competencies described in the Youthpass.
