MOVE – Mobility Oriented to Volunteering and Empowerment
Location: Bologna, Italy
Period: 01/07/2017 – 30/06/2018
Deadline: 30 November 2017
YouNet is looking for 2 EVS volunteers, 1 from Poland and 1 from Bulgaria for a 12 months EVS in youth policies, active citizenship and EU issues.
YouNet is a youth association working in the field of learning mobility. YouNet works as a network in the Italian territory (where we are working with other smaller NGO, local bodies, social communities, …) and it got strong relationships with several NGOs all across Europe and beyond. Some of the areas where we are more active are: social inclusion, intercultural dialogue, integration and migrants, antidiscrimination, environment and sustainable development, art and culture. We work as well with local and national institutions in Italy and with democracy projects
The volunteers will be actively embedded in the multiethnic and stimulating environment of Bologna by exploiting the activities and the network of contacts of YouNet. This will enable them to approach this context and act as protagonists thus making the most of the unique opportunity of the EVS. This close contact with the local community and the active participation in volunteering, informative and formative activities carried out by YouNet will widely enhance the growing possibility for the volunteers.
The volunteers will be involved in a European environment and will have the chance to learn about how the European Institutions (European Commission, Council of Europe, ..) and Programmes, working with specific reference to the youth policies and opportunities.
They will improve their teamwork abilities by managing time, logistics and organisation of the activities together with the other actors involved. Being able to take part in this kind of experience is formative and educational from a personal point of view too. It increases the volunteers’ awareness of their capacities and boosts their self-esteem. These aspects will be highlighted and exploited by the mentor.
Volunteers needs to bring thier own laptop. All together, volunteers will develop some common projects (supported by the mentor), for example the VIDEO about MOVE, radio interviews, public language tandems, public events…
All volunteers have the responsibility to contribute to the visibility of the project and of the Erasmus+ programme
