The whole proposed project is thought about the principle of solidarity and community participation. Solidarity in this project is aimed at the cohesion of youth groups in the local community, which is made more easily through joint activities - as the project proposes (joint effort by the international volunteers within the project and young people in the community in which is in action). Community intervention and the development of solidarity activities (of the community of young people and of the citizens in the neighborhoods where the intervention will take place) aims to promote the concept of active citizenship at the level of the neighborhood. Another objective aimed at promoting solidarity within the framework of the proposed project is to capitalize on volunteering among young people and to provide them with a positive experience that will stimulate further involvement at both community and civil society level.

The short-term objectives of the project are:
1. involvement of 100 young people in Europe in solidarity (volunteer) activities for 40 days in 5 communities in Timişoara
2. involve at least 40 young people in risk situations (young people registered in the probation system with non-custodial sentences) in solidarity actions in an international context for a period of 40 days in 5 communities in Timisoara
3. involvement of at least 30 (predominantly young) citizens in each community (150 in total) in setting up the five urban youth centers for a period of 40 days through volunteering or donation for center setting ( donations materialized only in objects necessary for the arrangement)
4. arrangement and inauguration of 5 youth centers in 40 days from 5 distinct communities in Timisoara using the principle of community solidarity and participatory arts

6. setting up of 5 urban youth centers in which to develop activities for young people in risk situations in order to make their social inclusion process more efficient

Long-term objectives
