"YesVolunteering" wants to improve models and methods to use social and cultural volunteering as a tool to train excluded people to active citizenship for personal and community empowerment. Volunteering is nowadays a tool for participation in society in various fields, establishing itself as an enriching experience that allows the development of social skills and competences. This is why we want to confront on the power of volunteering as a tool for adult education and to equip especially unemplOyed adults with skills and competences, which will help them to strengthen their sense of citizenship, responsibility and initiative, improve their media literacy and critical thinking, digital and organizational skills, their career possibilities on labour market, give a chance to gain international experience, develop their tolerance and sense of solidarity, and widen their horizons.
Partners from 6 countries will confront on the differences between volunteering systems, tools and perceptions in their countries. The project will support the transferability of learnings gained thorough volunteering experiences to other dimensions of people’s life. Specifically we will look for ways tomaximize the benefits of volunteering in terms of social integration and re-engagement, civic participation, mobility opportunities.
