Kultur & Fritid/Ungdomsavdelningen (Culture & Leisure/Youth Department) in the municipal of Sundsvall, Sweden, runs 11 Youth Clubs placed in different local living areas. The activity in the youth clubs varies from sports-, cultural-, handicraft activities. Youth clubs can also just be a venue for youngsters. During school leaves we organize camps, travels and team-building events for the same target group. For the young disabled people we carry out specially designed activities to fit them and their special needs. In the youth department we also provide designed activities available for young people with a specific interest , such as; activities which encourages youth democratic impact, audio studios, music arenas, recording and production of music, photo and moviemaking activities, skateboard and theatre. The venue Unga Magasinet (Young Magazine) established 2011, for youngsters in the ages of 16-25 focus on multicultural events, where European participants will implement most of their work. We are hosting, sending & coordinating organization, since 10 years and we believe we have established a good working environment for the participants that join us.

In our project the participants that we host, will experience such a diverse and highly instructive EVS, as it is possible for us to give them.
