General Description

Over the last 20+ years, the Romanian Erasmus+ National Agency focused on promoting and supporting learning as the main tool for change at local, national and European level, with a strong added value in all educational sectors.

At present, the NA works on identifying and connecting the needs of current beneficiaries to the future format of the European Solidarity Corps Program.

In addition, based on the specific European context – with Romania holding the Presidency of the Council of the European Union until June 2019 – the focus of the NA activity falls on promoting mobility, inclusion and excellence in the fields of education and youth.

Partnership building Activity. Inclusive Volunteering in Social Economy. Turkey

PBA: Inclusive Volunteering in Social Economy

Dates: 30 April – 4 May 2019

Venue: Ankara, Turkey

Eligible are max 25 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom

SALTO I&D and the Turkish National Agency for Erasmus+ Youth programme would like to see more young people with fewer opportunities taking part in volunteering projects.

General Description

Do you have experience working with individuals with special needs such as disability, social issues, mental challenges or an organisational environment that would welcome young people with such needs? Perhaps you’re experienced with volunteering but need more partners who can host these young people? Or maybe you just want to make a difference to young people’s lives…

Then this partnership building activity is for you! We would like to see more young people with fewer opportunities taking part in volunteering projects, but many hosting projects are not adapted or do not provide the needed extra support for young people (18-30 years) with special needs.

We believe that social economy organisations, with the necessary structures in place to support volunteers from disavantaged background in their activities, could become the perfect hosting place for these young people.

Hosting European volunteers gives not only the opportunity to change lives but the chance to add an international dimension and increase organisational capacity. We therefore want to bring ‘social economy’ organisations together with inclusion, youth and volunteering fields to explore the possibilities, advantages and concerns of having an European Volunteer.

Following a 2017 Inclusion & Diversity Strategy Steering Group meeting with representatives of social economy and the Youth and Vocational Education Forum 2018 (hosted in UK as part of the long term Toward’s Collaborative Practice), social economy organisations have been identified as often having projects or activities that are particularly directed towards people in underprivileged situations.

Despite frequently seeking committed volunteers to support their work, many organisations remain unaware of European volunteering funding opportunities, requirements and structures – such as the European Solidarity Corps. This partnership-building activity is a follow-up of the training course under the same topic taking place in Glasgow 10-14 December 2018.

This 3-day activity will take place in Ankara from 30th April (arrival day) to 4th May (departure) 2019 and it will be a unique opportunity to find partners to create inclusive volunteering projects in the framework of ESC. Although the programme also covers jobs and traineeships opportunities, this activity will only focus on quality volunteering projects.

General aim:

To introduce European volunteering projects to social economy organisations and encourage partnerships with inclusion, youth and volunteering organisations for quality, sustainable volunteering projects for young people with fewer opportunities.

Objectives:

– To get acquainted with the existing opportunities for youth volunteers’ placement, under European Solidarity Corps
– To share different practices on how to involve volunteers with fewer opportunities
– To motivate social economy organisations to host and send volunteers with fewer opportunities
– To develop skills in Erasmus+/ESC project management, specifically on volunteering initiatives
– To foster partnership building of potential hosting/supporting organisations equipped to support young people with fewer opportunities

Profile of participants at the course:

– Staff members/volunteers of social economy and volunteering organisations able to work on inclusion or directly with young people with fewer opportunities
– Youth workers (grassroots – involved in outreach youth work and directly working with young people with fewer opportunities)
– Staff members/volunteers involved in inclusion organisations
– Able to work in (international) English
– From ESC programme countries
– Former participants of the TC held in Glasgow (December 2018) are strongly encouraged to apply.

General Description

Activity for staff members of closed institutions (detention services, prisons etc.), probation centres and NGO’s to explore non-formal learning* and develop common Erasmus+ & European Solidarity corps projects involving young people in/after imprisonment

Activity has following objectives:

The methodology of the project factory is based on the fundamental principles of non-formal education.

The diversity of working methods (presentations, open space technology, design thinking, energizers, individual reflection, technical project management, feedback techniques, teamwork, etc.) will make more sense than ever in order to better illustrate the meaning of non-formal learning and support youth empowerment in and after imprisonment.
