RAINBOW is an EVS project that tries to accelerate the transition of 16 young people from NEET to employability/active life by getting them involved in activities with children in the risk of early school leaving. The context of the project bring in front 2 main issues: a high percentage of NEETs in the countries of the organizations involved in this project and a high percentage of children facing the risk of early school leaving in Romania. We are trying to tackle these 2 main issues. The main OBJECTIVES of RAINBOW are the following:- To offer 16 EVS volunteers in the situation of NEET from Spain, Italy, Greece & Poland a learning context to in which they can gain competences required by the labor market and the economy so that they can benefit from an accelerated transition to an active life by involving them in an EVS project composed of 2 mobilities: 3rd November 2016 – 3rd May 2017 & 6th May 2017 – 6th November 2017 which will take place in Arad, Romania;- To develop the competences of 250 children from Arad Social Center “Rainbow” that are able to reduce the risks of early school leaving and of becoming excluded and marginalized by involving them for a period of 12 months in activities such as outdoor/sports & teambuilding activities, intergenerational and social initiatives, cultural, intercultural& linguistic activities;- To improve the visibility of the activities offered by Arad Social Center “Rainbow” by promoting their activity and by developing their social media channels.The main activities of RAINBOW are the 2 mobilities taking place in Arad, Romania, between:1) 3rd November 2016 – 3rd May 2017 2) 6th May 2017 – 6th November 2017 For each mobility, each SO will select and prepare 2 EVS volunteers. Therefore, there will be involved 16 EVS volunteers, 8 male and 8 female participants. Out of the 16 participants, 8 will be with fewer opportunities. The participating organizations are: Clubul Tinerilor Aradeni “DELTA” – Filiala Timis as CO/HO and Scambieuropei (Italy), Alter Ego (Greece), Semper Avanti (Poland) and Association Cultural Muxelka (Spain) as SOs. The EVS volunteers will be involved in the following sets of tasks throughout the 2 mobilities in favor of the children from Arad Social Center “Rainbow”:RAINBOW ON THE MOVE: - sports, outdoor and teambuilding activities; - sessions for strengthening the team spirit using methods/games used by the “scouts”: the spiders;RAINBOW FOR ALL: - intergenerational activities with the children from the center and their families; RAINBOW COMPANION:- accompanying the children to artistic/cultural events addressed to children;- artistic workshops;CULTURAL RAINBOW: - culture and language workshops;GET TO KNOW THE RAINBOW: - developing the website of Arad Social Center “Rainbow” to highlight its activities and contribution; developing the Facebook page of the center, presenting the stories of children following the model “Humans of New-York”, creating video testimonials, interviews and videos of the activities that take place in the center, etc. All the methods used are non-formal, creative& inclusive. The learning outcomes of the EVS volunteers will represent the most important results of our project. We believe that these learning outcomes will accelerate their transition from NEET to employability or other form of structured educational opportunities. Also, they will have a positive impact on their personal and social lives. In addition, our project will also have some tangible results that are going to be disseminated and exploited.This project will not only have a positive impact on the EVS volunteers, but it will also positively influence the members of the target group, namely the children from Arad Social Center “Rainbow” and the participating organizations and local partners on short, medium and long term, at different levels (local-> international).
