Nice to Meet Youth is a project on local and socio-cultural development, which will stimulate organizations’ dynamism in the field of youth and environment and will develop the European perspective on the region PACA territory. We wish to promote youth people’s involvement in favor of an active citizenship, a sustainable and European citizenship.
The European volunteer from France who will be hosted in Greece has already been selected thanks to an effort of communication and applications’ selection carried out beforehand with our Greek partners.
The European volunteers will be hosted on the following activities:
1. Marjolaine, a volunteer from the sending organization Pistes Solidaires Méditerranée (Marseille) will be hosted in KANE (Greece) for a mission on the theme of socio-cultural events. She will participate to the cultural, social and educational activities of the organization. She will be involved in the setting up of an annual street art festival organised by the organization.
2. A volunteer from the sending organization Pistes Solidaires Méditerranée (Marseille) will be hosted in OpportUNITY Global (the United Kingdom) for a mission on the theme of the European values and Erasmus+ program. He will participate in the daily tasks of the organization. His main tasks will be to contribute on projects, to raise awareness on mobility and intercultural exchanges for youth on the region, european citizenship and its values and to animate workshops.
3. A volunteer from the sending organization JOINT (Italy) will be hosted in Pistes Solidaires Méditerranée (Marseille) for a mission on the theme of international and learning mobility and intercultural exchanges. He will participate in the daily tasks of the organization. His main tasks will be to contribute on projects, to develop communication and exchanges with partners of the organization, to raise awareness on mobility for youth on the region and to animate workshops with local young people.
4. A volunteer from the sending organization AFAIJ (Spain) will be hosted in Pistes Solidaires Méditerranée for a mission on the theme of sustainable development and biodiversity. He will participate in the daily tasks of the organization. His main tasks will be to contribute on PSM’s sustainable development projects in collaboration with La Gare Franche,to raise awareness on mobility for youth and to animate workshops with local young people.
This project will be led following a methodology acquired by experience, as Pistes Solidaires has been working on learning mobility for years. This methodology is based on: a good knowledge of administrative tools of the Erasmus + program, a good communication and “transparency policy” with our partners, an in-depth tutoring with the volunteers.
The mobility of youth in a situation of social or occupation integration will lead to empowerment and the learning of cross-disciplinary skills. This personal and professional development will allow a better integration once back in their own countries, but will also have a considerable impact during the volunteer. Indeed, the youth on the PACA territory who will be in contact with the volunteers will become aware of the issue of environment and of social challenges of youth, they will live an intercultural experience and will learn about opportunities for international mobility. In brief, the European volunteers will become “multipliers” in order to share the values that they believe in and knowledge that they carry.
To sum up, this project wishes to answer to society and environmental issues on the scale of the PACA region, but also in Europe and the whole world. Hosting European volunteers in organizations partners of this project represents a solution to some needs in local and socio-cultural development. Thus, while being involved in active organizations, the young volunteers will get to know to keys for a sustainable and responsible behavior towards the planet, and towards others. Then, they will the able to promote this behavior towards their peers, in order to create a civil and responsible Europe.
