Take Your Chance

With the high numbers of unemployement especially among the young people, we tend to motivate people to use all means available, that can differ them from the other adepts on the labour market, and the EVS is definitely one of them. The project aims to send a young motivated person from Slovakia for a period of 9 months to volunteer in the Mladiinfo International in Skopje, Macedonia. The main activities of the volunteer will be updating and bringing new content to the web-platforms of the organizations and in this way to contribute to helping the young people from all around the world who are in need of a support to fulfill their educational potential as they are challenged by many educational disadvantages caused by either personal, social, cultural or economic circumstances. The volunteers will do the research, communicate with organizations around the world, edit the free educational opportunities for youth including scholarships, internships, jobs, trainings and conferences. The volunteers will also bring their own ideas into creation of articles about education, (self)development, current events or personal experience and eventually their own projects. We believe that during 9 months of the service the volunteers will enhance their professional skills and competences and in the same time develop on a personal level. The international experience will bring them an important sense of solidarity, mutual understanding and tolerance as well as it will be an act of active citizenship. The two partner organizations are members of a Mladiinfo Network, which has its offices in Slovakia, Macedonia, Albania, Czech republic, Montenegro, Croatia and Slovenia. The network is proud to have a wide audience from all around the world and thanks to the volunteers contribution it will spread and increase the number of young people that are informed about available educational opportunities and motivated to fully exploit their potential to actively participate in society.
