Start date: Sep 1, 2016,

"Opening Borders Through Volunteering" is a project designed to host 4 volunteers from different European (Spain and Czech Republic) and Eastern-Europe and Caucasus countries (Ukraine and Albania) in different social services managed by Società Cooperativa Sociale Studio Progetto: Youth Centres and Youth Information Centres and European/International projects development office; the Social and Rehabilitation Programme "No Problem" addressed towards people with special needs and disabilities; Educational afternoon centres and Summer Camps for children and teens and projects to foster the inclusion of foreign people.The servíces will last fro7 up to 8 months from December 2016.Studio Progetto has a long tradition in promoting volunteering among young people of his region and in 2012 it started workingwith European Voluntary Service too.As a Cooperative we believe that the inclusion of volunteers in services with a strong social purpose will promote a sense ofsolidarity and tolerance of diversity among young people and we are highly convinced it could be an important educativeexperience to improve personal development. Furthermore, the presence of European volunteers will stimulate dialogue,intercultural understanding and mutual respect among Cooperative's operators and the external entities (associations,organizations and institutions, but also young people) with whom the volunteers will be in contact.Through the exchange of their experiences and by their presence in projects the four volunteers will be a real input for youngpeople and all community, to promote Europe Citizenship and the Erasmus+.
