Summary of the project:
The open youth center of Rietavas, as a coordinating organization, offers the project „Volunteering in Gargždai Open Youth Center“. This project is adapted to receive two volunteers at the Gargzdai Open Youth Center. The project is scheduled to host two volunteers – one from Italy and one from Georgia. Their term of office is 12 months from 1 September 2018 until 31 August 2019. Rietavas Open Youth Center (Lithuania) will be the coordinating organization, the Gargždai Open Youth Center (Lithuania) – the host organization, the DRONI Youth Association (Georgia) and VicoloCorto Youth Cultural Association (Italy) will be sending organizations. The aim of this project is to host two volunteers and create a safe and creative environment for them, provide them with opportunities for self-rehabilitation, involve local youth, improve their quality of life, foster initiative, active participation, creativity, diversity of employment, the development of citizenship and other values, non-formal education, through sport , art, culture, outdoor activities and other various methods. The main themes of the project are intercultural cooperation, the development of critical thinking, youth employment and leisure opportunities. Both volunteers will work at the Gargždai Open Youth Center, where each of them will have personal responsibility and some activities will be shared. Volunteer ideas and initiatives await an open space and a warm atmosphere (there will be possibilities for self-realization, for example: to teach your mother tongue, to organize art / sports activities for local youth, using their skills). We will publish the project on volunteering opportunities, publicize the ERASMUS + program, encourage young people to become interested in other cultures and get to know them.
