The project is developed for young people with fewer opportunities that are facing very difficult psychosocial situations, poverty, social exclusion, special needs and unemployement. Our aim is to work on the competences that will help young people in the process of inclusion into society and on the labor market. The short term EVS activities will be one part of a longer learning process that will provide long lasting effects. We want to enhance the personality development of young people through the empowerment based on non-formal learning and positive experiences, make their self esteem better, develop more efficient coping strategies and get over their prejudicies.Zavod Manipura from Slovenia will host 16 volunteers from Lithuania, Italy, Romania, France, Macedonia, Estonia, Hungary and Montenegro for the period of 2 months.The volunteers will be able to join a wide spectrum of activities: they will help with the renovation of the house, building small wooden cottages, making simple furniture for the Youth Centre, taking care of the ecological garden and the animals...
