At the European level we can observe a concerning decrease for the involvement of youth in voluntary activities. The situation is worse in developing cuntries like Romania, Poland and also Spain, where the level of youth involvement in community life is the lowest in European Union. The problem is emphasized by the current economic context, where the young people can’t reach the labour market due to the lack of practical skills, lack of entrepreneurial education and lack of interest for alternative methods of education. In this context, the objectives of the project are: O1.
