Your iniciative - Your EVS
Start date: Sep 1, 2016, End date: Aug 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The Project will be developed principally in Arenas de San Pedro. We would like to host 3 volunteers as we consider 1 could feel alone here if we have in mind the rural character of our region. Evaluating the EVS project with our current volunteers we think the increasing number of activities of the association allow to have more volunteers. This experience is enrichment to us as organization, to the volunteers themselves and for the local young people.The volunteers will live in an independent house with garden in the neighbourhood of the village centre. They will be provided by their own room, sharing kitchen, toilet, bathroom, etc. The organization will provide some bicycles for the volunteers. The distance between their place of living and the place of work is of 30 min walking.Arenas de San Pedro is a dynamic village with an active associative network (having in consideration its size). There are 15 active local associations working on a large variety of topics, starting with agriculture, responsible consume and ending by mountain activities. The Project will last for 9 months, starting the activity 1st of October 2016 and finalizing on 30th of June 2017. The participants are coming from Serbia, Ucraine and Germany. “Your Iniciative - Your EVS!” project´s aims: - To favour the volunteers ´integration in their new environment by their participation in the organization´s activities- To promote a consciousness in the following topics: youth initiative, citizen participation, sustainability, Culture of No Violence and entrepreneurship- To facilitate the learning process and tools to be developed in rural area - To facilitate a team spirit- To create a space for personal learning by intercultural interaction. - To develop personal and social skills that the volunteers will be able to use in future, once back home- To get to know practical tools to work with young adolescents- To learn and discover how projects based on non formal education are managed- To promote youth mobility at European level- To show and explain to the youngsters of Arenas de San Pedro the facts about EVS- To facilitate learning of Spanish languageWorking method:The volunteers will assist in our association’s activities that were previously agreed upon and will have space and freedom to develop their own initiatives, depending on their interest and creativity.
