Title: Partnership building activity. “EVA - Empowerment through Volunteering Activities” - call for participants
Description of the Project:
Established at the end of 2001 in Palermo the Associazione InformaGiovani is the coordinating body of an informal European network of several organizations aimed to promote volunteering as a tool for social action.
“EVA - Empowerment through Volunteering Activities” is a volunteering project aimed at stimulating youth participation in European democratic life through commitment to social voluntary initiatives. By combining voluntary activities, information and promotional activities and a training course addressed to future volunteers, the project aims at:
spreading culture of volunteering among young people
increasing awareness among young people, especially those with fewer opportunities, about the opportunities for personal or professional growth offered by international mobility and volunteering abroad
enhancing the role of NGOs in their interventions and support targeted at local community and weaker social categories.
In the frame of this project, Associazione InformaGiovani will implement a meeting among local, EU and extra-EU organisations with the aim to increase and consolidate long-term relationships of cooperation with volunteering organisations belonging to Partner or neighboring countries and to establish as well new partnership for future cooperation.
