“YOUrope needs YOU project”

Volunteering -

The project aims to empower high school students all over Europe to become active members of society. The project team produced a booklet to give a synthesis of key data on Europe and the EU, European identity and values, multiculturalism as well as guidelines on how to organise a workshop. Project leaders also train volunteers who are willing to organise workshops in their universities. Currently, the project team can refer to 7 different nationalities working together on a voluntary basis, including EU and non-EU members, eager to share their vision of a tolerant and active society with high school students. The advanced training course targets future workshop leaders in high schools. During five days participants from different countries learn all they need in order to design and hold interactive workshops. They deepen their understanding of European affairs, learning about European opportunities and how to make the best use of them by using non-formal education methods. Generally they hear for the first time about active citizenship, voluntary work, etc. Besides knowledge about European topics, trainers ensure that they develop soft skills and tools for working with youngsters, for conducting interactive workshops and facilitating discussions. It thus allows students to actively participate and contribute to European active citizenship. It also contributes to overcoming Euro-scepticism that remains a great challenge today in Europe.
