Youth and Education Youth Development is able to offer young people aged 18 to 30 the opportunity to participate in an ECHO APPROVED European Voluntary Service program in Croatia.Moreover, the project is designed to encourage voluntary experience for young people providing support for vulnerable groups: for people who suffer from malignant diseases, elder and disabled people, socially vulnerable, as well as the introduction in the work of humanitarian associations.
Furthermore, the aim of the activities is to improve skills and competencies of volunteers, through practical engagement and non-formal learning methods. Through activities they will encourage the volunteers to participate in community, to be active, to develop empathy for the socially vulnerable groups as well as to promote social inclusion and solidarity.
In addition, project activities will be held in the City of Zagreb and its surrounding, where the volunteers will have continuous support in their engagement, organized by Center Circles. Also, all activities have an informal character, which will be used in the practical and theoretical engagement. The methods used through the support for volunteers are educations, evaluations, mentoring, reflections, individual as well as group support, and oral / written feedback.
