Project description

The project is designed to encourage voluntary experience for young people providing support for vulnerable groups: for elder, disabled, people who suffer from malignant diseases, socially vulnerable. The aim of the activities is to improve skills and competencies of volunteers, through practical engagement and non-formal learning methods. Through activities we will encourage the volunteers to participate in community, to be active, to develop empathy for the socially vulnerable groups and to promote social inclusion and solidarity. Through this project we will ensure a permanent transfer of knowledge, which will be confirmed by Youthpass and with experience of volunteers. This will improve the possibility for the volunteer's employment in their countries and in Europe.
