The project is a direct result of the joint efforts of the participating organizations СEI from Bulgaria and VIA from Germany to prevent the increasing youth unemployment in rural areas of the two countries. The coordinating organization from Bulgaria acts as a host for 2 volunteers from Germany, who will participate in a 12 months volunteer project. The volunteers will realize activities, stimulating the activeness of youngsters from rural areas as well as their willingness to gain new skills through volunteering. The specific tasks will be: developing electronic bulletin and a radio program as well as organizing info days, in cooperation with local partners: schools, youth clubs, communiy centres and libraries. The volunteers will be provided with special training on web design, facilitation, presentation and media skills and will be supported by experienced experts in their activities. A language course in Bulgarian will also be organized for them. Other important elements of the project will be thematic events (cuisine exhibitions, souvenirs workshops) for the mutual understanding of the different cultures. More than 700 youngsters from the rural areas of 6 municipalities will be involved in the project activities.
