Location: Portugal
Project name: Acting Local, Changing Global
Hosting organisation:Portuguese Red Cross youth
Sending organisation: “Common Sense” Youth Organisation

Purpose of the project:
The Portuguese Red Cross Youth is going to host young volunteers for 10, 8 and 7 months starting in May/June and September 2024. During these months, these volunteers will carry out different activities that aim to foster solidarity in children and youngsters, not only amongst themselves, but also towards every human being, regardless of nationality, gender or race. Volunteers will carry out activities in order to work effectively in the social inclusion of children and vulnerable young people living in these communities. At the same time they will develop their own personal and social skills. Our aim is to include the volunteers in the projects of these Portuguese Red Cross youth structures if they feel motivated, but also allow their participation when it comes to event planning, social media and communication activities and even motivate them to create their own projects and develop their ideas among our communities.  For more information visit the infopack
