“YOU(TH) Moving to Future: Volunteering in a Multicultural background” was a long term EVS Program organised in Don Bosco Rijswijk in The Netherlands and Svitac in Bosnia. This project aimed to give 6 volunteers an experience of European Voluntary Service promoting intercultural learning and working with children (often disadvantaged) and young people. Responsibilities were given to the volunteers, and through daily interaction with other (EVS) volunteers and living together with them, the experience is being shared and learned from. The project activity was for one year starting on the 1st of September 2014. The 5 volunteers came from 5 different countries: Austria, Germany, Spain, Bosnia and Hungary to Don Bosco Rijswijk and 1 Dutch volunteer did his EVS in Bosnia. The concrete tasks of the volunteers were to assist the children in different age groups in the overblijf (lunch break in a school for those who are coming to the Netherlands) and in organising youth exchanges, trainings, receiving groups both national and international for activities. There were additional activities like: organising kids feasts, open house, and holiday activities for the children. In Bosnia the Dutch volunteer worked in Svitac to organise workshops, events on various themes to different schools and young people. This project made great impact on all the partners involved especially the volunteers because most of them mentioned that it was a life changing experience for them.
