The level of youth participation is rather low particularly in deprived urban area and rural areas as well as in bordering regions in the Eastern Partnership region (EaP) of the EU.

Thus, the objectives of the project are:
o To share good practices on fostering youth participation through diverse forms of youth work
o To build transnational partnerships for future cooperation in the youth field among diverse organisations from across Europe
o To develop needs-based follow-up projects for fostering youth participation on local level in Europe.

The project will consist of 3 Activities:
Activity 1: Online preparation (August 2019);
Activity 2: Partnership-Building Seminar in Yanoshi, Ukraine (09.-16.09.2019);
Activity 3: Follow-up and dissemination (September – December 2019).

If you have:
• Good knowledge of the youth context in the community/ country of the sending organisation;
• Good understanding of youth work, especially youth work fostering youth participation;
• Work or volunteering experience in an NGO, youth group, initiative group or movement working
with young people;

European Solidarity Corps – Бути волонтером

Чули про ESC (European Solidarity Corps), але завжди турбувала думка про те, що ж вас насправді там чекає? 

Саме тому презентуємо вам статтю нашого волотера, який працював в Литві, та опис його досвіду під час проекту. 

                  Бути  волонтером 

Закінчивши свій останній рік навчання в університеті, я опинився в періоді роздумів: а що робити далі? Куди піти? Яка перспектива?  

   Тоді я зрозумів, що хочу зробити щось корисне і для себе, і для іншої людини. Отже, я вирішив, що хочу спробувати волонтерську діяльність.   Вирішивши, що хочу працювати у соціальній сфері, а саме з молоддю та дітьми, я почав шукати можливості на сайтах, які мені порекомендував мій брат та ті, що й сам знав. Коли я подав кілька заявок, отримував відмови, або взагалі жодної відповіді не приходило і настав час розчарувань. Проте, я все ще мав надію, і таки отримав відповіді від двох організацій, які захотіли залучити мене до своєї волонтерської діяльності. І, пройшовши успішно скайп співбесіди, я обрав найкращий для себе проект… і вирушив в Литву. 

    Приїхавши до нової країни, я не мав уявлення про складність мови та деяких інших речей, але це була можливість вчитися, набиратись досвіду та зростати як особистість – а це для  мене було найважливішим. Це була можливість відокремити себе від інших, побачити свої сильні та слабкі сторони, і, звісно ж, працювати над цим. З іншого боку, я отримав нагоду бути прикладом для інших волонтерів та, зокрема, для дітей, з якими я працював; адже вирішення проблем і робота над чимось зближує і допомагає побудувати дружні відносини. Також, я б хотів згадати таку просту річ, що має назву “здатність робити помилки” – тому що успіх  складається саме з них. Краще зробити помилку, ніж не робити нічого, і, в результаті, нічого не вивчити. Іноді ваша помилка – найбільша можливість для вас, тому що це цінний досвід, з якого ви можете повчитись. І, нарешті, друга опція, яка допоможе вам під час проекту – це можливість вирішувати проблеми тут і зараз. Не зважайте на те, у якій халепі ви опинились, лише шукайте відповіді та інструменти на заміну, аби якомога швидше знайти рішення та стати сильнішим.  

Дуже важко втиснути в словах цей досвід (саме тому я запрошую вас спробувати). Відчувши інтенсивність цього проекту, я розумію, що зараз живу життям вдвічі швидше: я подорожую, кидаю виклики для себе та все більше зростаю як особистість.  

      Для мене це – найкраща частина мого життєвого  досвіду; тепер я знаю людей з усього світу і це дійсно стимулює рости. Це будування довіри та дружби. Також, це неймовірні відчуття, коли ви зможете потрапити на тренування з абсолютно незнайомими людьми і уже після 4-ох днів почуватиметесь, мов би сім’я. Ви не зможете зрозуміти, як і коли з’явився цей дружній зв’язок між вами;  тому, я просто скажу, що я вдячний кожній новій людині в моєму житті і заохочую вас спробувати та відчути ці емоції.

    Стосовно мого проекту: мені дуже подобалася моя робота навіть тоді, коли (іноді) вона була складною. Проте, я багато чого навчився від своїх особливих дітей. Я відчував справжню любов, яку вони поділяли зі мною. Тому, знати, що я комусь допоміг – це найкраще відчуття у світі. 

   Підсумовуючи, я б сказав, що ESC принесе вам багато можливостей, хороших емоцій, друзів та дивовижних майбутніх спогадів. 

   P.S Не забувайте бути добрим без будь-якої користі. Будьте приємні до інших людей, показуйте їм повагу та допомагайте їм якомога більше, і одного дня вам відплатиться в стократ.

Набір учасників на міжнародний тренінг

Інститут Суспільних Ініціатив оголошує набір учасників на міжнародний тренінг Open Up:Improv for Social Inclusion, що відбудеться 3-10 квітня у Карпатському селищі Славське (Львівська область). Мова проекту – англійська. Проект здійснюється за підтримки Erasmus+.

This project is for you, if:

you are the citizen of Ukraine
you are 18+ years old;
you are a youth worker;
you are working/planning to work with disadvantaged young people or young people who are experiencing cultural difference.

About the project:

Social inclusion is one of the top priorities in the world’s social policy agenda in accordance with Sustainable Development Goals number 4 (Quality education), 10 (Reduced inequalities). Considering current social challenges, that exist in Europe, connected with a large number of refugees and migrants, who are coming to this region, the topic of social adaptation and inclusion has never been as relevant and actual to be learned and worked on.

For young people in any culture, during their period of development, their place in society, self-realization and acceptance by others can shape their future and play a significant role in determining whether they will be successful or not. We believe that one way to achieve equality and tolerance is to educate society by art and one of the most exciting art forms which is open to everyone is improvisation theatre. This innovative method of non-formal education serves a perfect example of an art form, that is suitable and open to every person, disregarding any possible obstacles, social position or profession.
The training Course was envisioned in order to properly educate youth workers on innovative tools of working with disadvantaged youth and in this way to contribute to building of inclusive society. It will gather 34 youth workers from 10 EU and Eastern Partnership countries, to develop their competences and to equip them with creative education tools, such as improvisational theater and storytelling to tackle the issue of social exclusion of youth.
Through participation in this training course, youth workers will receive multiple benefits ranging from learning new information, developing soft skills and building confidence and self-esteem.

Project goals:

  • to increase the capacity of youth workers by enriching their working methods with the
    innovative tools of improvisational theatre and storytelling;
  • to provide an opportunity for experience exchange between youth workers from different
    countries and backgrounds, on using of non-formal education methods and tools;
  • to deepen the knowledge on the background, needs and challenges, that young people with fewer opportunities are facing;
  • to promote intercultural learning and interpersonal dialogue between participants.

Participating countries: 

Armenia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lithuania, UK, Ukraine

Costs

Organisers cover accomodation, food and travel expences. Participants’ contribution – 30 Eur to be paid upon arrival to the venue.

How to apply:
