The project “Volunteers for Youth Participation and Activism” consists in hosting 2 EVS volunteers for a period of 12 months in ALDA-Skopje. ALDA-Skopje welcomes the volunteers for an immersion in the European experience by discovering the Balkan Region and experimenting life in Macedonia, candidate country for the European Union. Reciprocally, volunteers will bring their testimonies about what are France and European Union for them. More specifically, this project aims to create a dialogue between French and Macedonian young people about European citizenship and about their engagement in their local community and in international community.The main goal will be to encourage tolerance, intercultural understanding, Youth development in their society and in the Balkan region and introducing the volunteers to other cultures and European mobility. This project consists in working on this topic of Youth development through:- Leading Youth activities and workshops on the topic of Youth participation and activism in the Western Balkan region through ALDA’s main project “Balkan Regional Platform for Youth Participation and Dialogue”,- Promoting EU citizenship and exchanges to youngsters, civil society organisations and local authorities in Macedonia,- Promoting intercultural understanding through presentations of other culture and language for Macedonian youngsters, and the discovery of a common history through the European remembrance topic.The two volunteers will work with Macedonian youngsters and other partners on these topics. This project objective is also to contribute for the professional and personal development of these volunteers: integration in an international team, development of professional skills, improvement of language competences etc. This will not only contribute to their possibility for employment but also will contribute to the creation of responsible and engaged young European citizens.
