The “Cooperative Learning” project 2011-GR-33 cultivates and advances new technologies and work on their joining with the Education, Culture and Sports.

The EVS volunteer deals with the development of projects in an educational, cultural and scientific level helps unemployed people to learn and use and realise projects with educational, youth and sport organizations, teachers, students and young people with the help of W.W.W or future technologies.
The project focus is on the creation of Cultural and Educational “New Technologies” projects, like Web pages, DVD’s, Videos and Sport activities, offering to young people who live in Chios Island and to the Europeans information about many subjects.
The European volunteer, under the guidance and help of TES’s people, will work together with our youngsters, and help them to get in touch with the European Dimension & New Technologies and to inform them about how to reach new possibilities in the field of Education, Employment, Sport, Entertainment, etc.
The volunteer will offer to the young people in Chios Island the possibility to open new horizons. It is really important for the youngsters who live in an isolated place like Chios Island, to have information about the opportunities they have, to work with new technologies, to open discussions about this and help them. The Young Voluntary workers undertake to participate voluntarily in an active citizen and informative experience with the aim of acquiring social, intercultural and personal skills, working with different kind of computer software, taking part in the preparation, realisation and evaluation of Educational, Sport, Cultural and other projects and at the same contribute to the well being of the community. After learning Greek, the volunteers will be able to inform the young Greek people, especially the people with fewer opportunities, about the actions of the “Youth in action” Program.
