The project Virvolt 2015 concerns the organization of a EVS long term project where 3 volunteers coming from Russia, Ukraine and Italy will be hosted in Virvolt, the Ile de France delegation of Solidarités Jeunesses.
This project foster the development of local activities meant to boost the participation and the intercultural dimension of the local community living in a urban city with a high level of youth at risk of social exclusion.
Virvolt is an open place, where different people come to learn about community living, trespassing linguistic, socio cultural and economic barriers and prejudices. Through the values of solidarity, justice and peace, Virvolt encourages the participation of everybody to the local life and promote an active and responsible citizenship.
The volunteers will be implied in all the activites of the association. they will contribute to the manual work and to all the aspects of the collective life. They will also be engaged in the animation activities organised in the association site and and in the villages around.
Thanks to the energy that the volunteers will invest in the local level, sharing their ideas and cultures with a population that often do not have the opportunity to have any intercultural experience, they will contribute to the local development and they will show a different way of being youth.
With their participation to the local initiatives to promote international volunteering, the participants will be witness and promoters of the mobility opportunities offered by the association and by the European Union, giving them all the necessary information to take part to one of them.
