Volunteerism Without Borders
Start date: Aug 1, 2013,

The EVS project "Volunteerism Without Borders" involves five volunteers from Germany, Poland and Spain and is the result of cooperation between six organizations - hosting/coordinating organization from Ukraine and sending organizations from Germany,Poland and Spain. Project activities will take place in the city of Sumy over a period of 12 months(01/09/2013-31/08/2014). The primary objective is the exchange of information and experience between four different European cultures: German, Polish, Spanish and Ukrainian. By joining European Volunteers with Sumy Regional Youth Euroclubs, we hope to develop solidarity and cross border relationships between Ukrainian youth and their European neighbours. Together they will learn to celebrate the broad diversity that exists in Europe, and help to strengthen the way to a larger, more encompassing European Union. Implemented activities: participating in and leading Euroclubs involving local school youth focused on promoting European values, active citizenship, civic responsibility, community service, teaching leadership skills to youth and providing them with knowledge about EU, European integration, what it means to be European citizen; promotion of cultural diversity and breaking stereotypes about home countries of volunteers in the local community; promotion of voluntary service among local youth; strengthening the Sumy Network of Euroclubs. Methods: leading discussion groups and intercultural workshops; workshops on EU issues, project design, management and implementation; facilitating shared information and collaboration between organizations; conducting native language clubs; development of future EVS opportunities for Ukrainian youth.
