organizacijos aprašas

Associazione Joint was founded in December 2003 to promote social activities for youngsters between 13 and 30. The mission of the organization is to provide non-formal education opportunities for young people in international contexts. Joint has its main office in Milano and volunteers spread around Italy. We organize, along with young people, different kinds of activities, involving as many youngsters as possible from the planning stage and always trying to involve people with fewer opportunities that had never participated in mobility projects. Our main activities are Youth Exchanges, Training Courses, and European Voluntary Service within the Erasmus+ Programme; training courses for young leaders and events in local communities; Capacity Building, English Summer Camp, Italian Summer Camp, and international volunteering projects. The focus of our activities is active participation and intercultural learning, as well as non-formal education through which Associazione Joint brings the activities forward. Our aim is to help youngsters develop their transversal competencies by using non-formal learning approach. Over the last four years, thanks to the experience of our staff in project management, training, and youth projects, we’ve started to guide local and international NGOs in the Erasmus+ field, coordinating for them EVS projects, training courses and youth exchanges. We also created some of the most known websites about international mobility and Erasmus+ opportunities in Italy and in Europe. To increase the quality of EVS sending process in 2013 Joint, along with other NGOs, established the Italian Network of European Volunteering (RIVE – Rete Italiana Volontariato Europeo) aiming to increase the quality of all EVS projects, improving the recognition of volunteering as a learning experience and promoting the advocacy of mobility projects and volunteering with local, national and European stakeholders. We created in 2014 a network of European EVS Sending Organisations that manage websites on EVS in 14 languages and that want to create national networks all over Europe following the model of RIVE.
We are aiming to expand our network and give special value to long-term partner associations.
Over the past few years, Joint has put a lot of effort into developing local network collaborating with the Municipality of Milan and many youth centers, promoting youth mobilities and Erasmus+ programme. In fact, once a month, we are organizing meetings at Informagiovani (a space where young people can inform themselves more about the job offers, workshops, volunteering opportunities or just spend their leisure time), trying to get youngsters closer to the European Voluntary Service programme and now we start to talk about the European Solidarity Corps and how the new program works.
Nevertheless, many years of experience in the field of non-formal education, conducted us to increase the number of projects as well as their complexity. In the last 3 years, we’ve been taking part in many Capacity Buildings, involving not only our European partners but also the ones from South America, Asia, and Africa. These projects helped us improve the quality of our service, exchange good practices with other organizations and create a worldwide volunteering network.
