INTERCULTURAL VOLUNTEER TEENAGERS’AWARENESS
This is a strategic partnership that focuses on increasing volunteering awareness among teenagers,on bringing awareness to international volunteering activities, by creating opportunities with social interaction and intercultural dialogue.We aim to do a call for action through raising awareness of volunteerism, adding an incentive to voluntary work, and creating an environment where teenagers can feel the sense of belonging.We aim to identify different models of international volunteering,share and confront ideas, practices and methods, highlight examples of good practices and innovations.We would like to support developing of teenagers’ basic skills/key competences and attitude towards voluntarism with creative, collaborative, communicative, think critically and problem solving technique.This project will strengthen the teenager’s appreciation of cultural diversity, sense of initiative and foster the understanding of equality throughout Europe, fostering stronger participation of young people in democratic and civic life in Europe.
