YOUTH FOR DISABILITIES
Start date: May 1, 2015,
End date: Nov 30, 2016
“Youth for Disabilities” is a EVS long term Project taking place in Vicenza, an Italian city in Venice area. It foresees that two youth - one Portuguese and one Montenegrin - spent 12 months volunteering in Social Cooperative Città Solidale (hosting organisation), which daily deals with people with psychic disabilities, promoting with its work social inclusion and European citizenship awareness. Then, the Project involves Social Cooperative Insieme as Project coordinator, Città Solidale (Italy, hosting organisation), ProAtlântico – Associação Juvenil (Portugal, sending organisation) and Mladiinfo Montenegro (Montenegro, sending organisation) as Partners. The Project aims at strengthening and further improving the coordinating activity of Insieme, by developing and supporting the hosting one of Città Solidale, putting together their networks, their initiatives and competences, in order to better exchange approaches, methods, knowledge and culture with European youth; the final aim being to enrich the hosting organisation culture, providing new opportunities also addressed to the local community.
The activities proposed to the volunteers concern the following areas: - service in the educative live-in community hosting people with light disabilities; - service in the supportive live-in communities hosting people with more serious disabilities; - eventual support during the organisation of events linked to the issues promoted (social inclusion, volunteering, rights of people with special needs, etc.
