Phiren Amenca is a network of Roma and non-Roma volunteers and voluntary service organizations creating opportunities for non-formal education, dialogue and engagement, in order to challenge stereotypes and racism. We aim to specifically facilitate the access of young people with fewer opportunities and especially young Roma who had more limited access to benefit from the European Voluntary Service. We bring young Roma and non-Roma volunteers in Roma projects and communities, together through seminars and meetings to create intercultural dialogue and a common engagement for respect and an inclusive society. We strive to promote the value of volunteering and active citizenship, and advocate for the recognition of voluntary service and non-formal education also within policies and strategies targeting Roma communities and social inclusion.
The volunteer will work together with the diverse staff of our organization. The volunteer will take part in projects addressing non-formal education and activism against racism and antigypsyism; going to contribute to the success of the project with his/her own experiences and ideas and he/she is going to benefit from opportunities of a new life experience, intercultural learning, non-formal education, and new language skills.
