description of organisation

En Construcción nace en el año 2005 con los siguientes fines:
– Fomentar iniciativas socioculturales y artísticas desde una perspectiva crítica.
– Facilitar el acceso a los canales de participación social existentes y promover la creación de otros nuevos.
– Impulsar acciones educativas desde un enfoque sostenible, intercultural y de género.
– Apoyar la búsqueda y creación de empleo entre colectivos con menos oportunidades.

Nuestra asociación gestiona desde hace 2006 la Oficina de Movilidad Juvenil Internacional de Avilés "Europa Aquí", en colaboración con el Servicio de Juventud de Ayuntamiento de Avilés. Nuestros objetivos son informar a jóvenes y entidades que trabajan jóvenes sobre las posibilidades de movilidad juvenil en Europa en el ámbito de la educación no formal, así como apoyarles para participar en actividades internacionales tales como intercambios juveniles, SVE, cursos de formación, seminarios, prácticas, etc. y fomentar la participación juvenil tanto a nivel local como internacional.
"Europa Aquí" forma parte de la oferta de actividades del Servicio de Juventud de Avilés, que bajo el nombre de "El Patio" apoya a jóvenes y asociaciones a desarrollar sus propias propuestas para jóvenes. Los/as jóvenes que realizan el Servicio Voluntario Europeo con nuestra asociación tienen la oportunidad de participar en todas las propuestas dentro de "El Patio" y sugerir las suyas propias.
"En Construcción" cuenta con una persona contratada a tiempo completo para coordinar los proyectos de Servicio Voluntario Europeo y otros proyectos internacionales para jóvenes.
El grupo destinatario está formado por jóvenes entre 14 y 30 años. Una de nuestras principales prioridades es la participación de jóvenes con menos oportunidades en nuestras actividades.

En construcción was established in 2005 to promote youth active participation in our region, Asturias (Spain). Since 2006 it has managed the International Youth Mobility Office of Avilés (“Europa Aquí”), in cooperation with the Youth Service of the Municipality of Avilés. Our objectives are to inform young people and organizations working with youngsters about the youth mobility possibilities in Europe in the frame of non-formal education, and to support them to participate in international activities such as youth exchanges, European Voluntary Service, training courses, seminars, internships, etc. as well as promoting youth participation at both a local and international level.
“Europa Aquí” is part of the activities offered by the Youth Service of the Municipality of Avilés, that under the name of “El Patio” supports youngsters and organizations to develop their own proposals for young people. Those who do European Voluntary Service with our organization have the chance to participate in all the activities within “El Patio” as well as propose their own ones.
“En Construcción” has one full time worker to coordinate European Voluntary Service projects and other international projects for young people.
Activities are addressed to youngsters between 14 and 30 years old. One of our main priorities is the participation of youngsters with fewer opportunities.

Participants with fewer opportunities

  • This organisation has a physical environment suitable for young people with physical, sensory or other disabilities (such as wheelchair access and similar.
  • This organisation has additional mentoring or other support suitable for young people with social obstacles, educational difficulties, cultural differences or similar.
  • Other experience, infrastructure and resources:

    So far we have hosted and sent more than ten young people with fewer opportunities, for several reasons : social disadvantage, physical or intellectual disability, visual impairment, health problems, etc. The EVS coordinator has a Degree in Psychology and has a wide ranging experience in the field of social inclusion. When we host or send youngsters with fewer opportunities we give even more importance to the cooperation with the sending or hosting organzation and, in the case of hosting, we rely on other people trained to do tasks of reinforced mentorship. In the cases where we host people with physical disabilities, the building where they live and develop their activities is almost free of architectural barriers. Some of these barriers have been overcome thanks to the suggestions of volunteers with reduced mobility.
