Project name:  IT’S #UPTOYOUTH!

Hosting organization: Asociatia Voluntariat pentru Viata

Sending organization: “Common Sense” Youth Organization

Purpose of the project: 

The project involves 20 ESC volunteers (15 European + 5 Romanians) who are going to support community mini-projects initiated in a voluntary manner by children/youngsters with the help of the ESC volunteers.Civic participation of children and involvement in the community life of which they belong to, is of great importance for the child’s development and the future adult, but also for the development of the community, of the society as a whole, so affected by passivity, lack of civic involvement, initiative. In this project we start from the premise that active participation cannot be taught by listening to or memorising norms and rules, but by practising and getting 

involved in the community. We want the project to transform children from spectators into architects of change in their own community. Children and young people, together with ESC volunteers and teachers become active agents of change through social entrepreneurship and community involvement. For more information follow the link
