Start date: Jan 1, 2016,

“Comarca de la Jacetania” is a territorial local authority, with own legal personality, which has capacity and autonomy to fulfill its purposes and own competences. It comprises 20 municipalities: 16 in the province of Huesca and 4 in Zaragoza. It stretches along 1.857'90 km2 and has approximately 18,421 inhabitants.WHY DO WE WANT TO CARRY OUT THE SVE PROJECT IN THE REGION OF THE JACETANIA?From the Department of Children and Youth, it’s always considered very important to work from an interdisciplinary perspective and provide children of this area all possible resources to develop their skills and capacity. Having European volunteers in rural areas is very important because we believe that it’s possible to give a reciprocal learning process for both young volunteers and young people in rural areas.The involvement of foreign students in projects that we are already working, means giving a more quality and innovation (they may bring many new things), we also disclose directly the project and the general population visualizes the European projects (in this particular case SVE) and, in this way, we work indirectly the awareness of an European area of lifelong learning. Similarly, the involvement of two European volunteers from different countries in all activities we develop, provides an important intercultural dimension and incorporates and visualizes the existing multilingualism in the EU.OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT:- Providing a channel for mutual learning for both European volunteers, through the projects we are developing, and young people we are working with.- Visualizing and introducing the SVE project through the experience of volunteers, explaining the project through their own experience and encouraging young people in the area to take part in it.Examples of support tasks to be undertaken:- Attending coordination meetings with other departments or entities and taking an active part, as much as possible.- Supporting in specific activities that can be performed from the department: tours, meetings, exchanges as part of a project, youth fairs and so on.- Backing the creation of graphic support of the activities: taking pictures, recording videos, podcast (www.vozcasters.es), uploading information of the activities to the social networks; as well as the broadcasting of information.- Supporting and helping other young peple to demand activities based on their interests. - Information seeking about employability through social networks.- Supporting and taking part in the various activities that are developed in training. (Preparation of the activity, lists of participants, assessment support and so on).- Supporting the different actions carried out to implement this project within the framework Erasmus Plus, such as Key Action 1, 2 or key 3.- Supporting activities aimed at children, such as Environment awareness workshops, education in values…- Attending secondary schools to support young people in charge of invigorating the center.Our methodology is normally a participatory methodology provided from non-formal education, although in some cases we collaborate in schools but keeping these principles.Furthermore, from the Department of Children and Youth, we believe that we are working with a wide range of people both directly and indirectly. Therefore the potential impact of the SVE project may reach all these people and will have an effect on the general population.Volunteers will be often in direct contact with both young people of IES (Secondary Schools) and villages, with other professionals working in the field of education or different social ones, parents associations in the area, so that the positive effects will be visible in many people.We also believe that releasing this project may encourage not only other organizations or associations of the area to take part in it but also young people in the area to be interested in this option mobility and learning experience in Europe, thus giving a multiplier effect, not only short-term but also long-term.
