Voluntary Service International (VSI) is the coordinating organization of this Erasmus + Key Action 1 project called 'Participate - Learn – Grow 3'. VSI has worked with the EVS programme to enrich young people's lives for many years and has hosted, sent and coordinated many EVS volunteers/projects. With this project we aim to increase the numbers of young people participating in the EVS programme, to offer them opportunities to participate, learn and grow. There are 14 participants in total, 3 of them have been selected; one of these has special needs and we will target young people with fewer opportunities including migrants and refugees, long-term unemployed, economically disadvantaged and LGBT young people for some of the other projects.The EVS projects will take place in Ireland, Albania, Armenia, Greece and Kosovo, all focussing on young people's participation, inclusion, integration, learning and their growth through this. We also aim to impact upon the professional development of youth workers in the partner organizations through their learning and development and increasing their capacity through involvement in this EVS project. All the partners hope to develop our involvement and capacity in the Erasmus+ programme through the project. In Ireland two organizations will provide the following EVS opportunities: - Voluntary Service International (VSI), a peace and social justice NGO based in Dublin will host one volunteer from VCZ -Croatia and one volunteer from SCI-Spain for 12 months each from May 2016. The volunteers will work on VSI's international volunteer programmes with the general youth population as well as with young people with fewer opportunities such as those who are unemployed, are disabled or migrants. Their work will focus on promoting peace and social justice and on inclusion through volunteering.- Moytura Projects (MP) an environmental organization in Sligo that aims to create low tech solutions to ecological dilemmas particularly soil and water remediation will host 3 volunteers from SCI-Catalonia, KVT-Finland and PVN-Albania for 6 months each from June 2016. The EVS volunteers will be involved in supporting educational and learning activities such as experience days, workshops and seminars; assisting in one-off voluntary community initiatives connected to MP's ongoing activities.VSI will provide young people from Ireland the opportunity to volunteer on the EVS programme internationally: -PVN Albania will host 2 volunteers for 12 months each and 1 for 2 months to work with young people and disability organizations to raise their awareness on volunteering and the E+ programme and to encourage their involvement. The volunteers will also work on PVN's international volunteer programme focussing on young people's involvement in volunteering and promoting peace and social justice issues. -SOS Children's Villages in Armenia will host 1 volunteer to work with disadvantaged children.-The Paediatric Rehabilitation Centre in Armenia will host 1 volunteer to work with children with disabilities in their centre. Both organizations will be supported by HUJ-Armenia -PAAPAV in Greece will host 1 volunteer to work with young people and children with disabilities, this placement will be supported by Tandem NGO in Greece. -Alter Ego NGO in Greece will host 2 volunteer to work with them on promoting young people's integration, intercultural learning and awareness of the E+ programme. -Wings of Hope in Kosovo will host 1 volunteer to work with them on their services to young people and the local communities. All the participants will learn in a variety of ways including through non-formal education. This project will contribute to VSI's mission of promoting peace, social justice, sustainable development and intercultural understanding, inclusion and social justice.We expect the participants to grow personally and professionally, to increase their intercultural understanding and to learn about climate justice, environmental issues, inclusion, integration of young people, work with children and work with people with disabilities, peace and social justice and post-conflict issues. The project will provide the participants with the opportunity to enhance their employability through increasing their practical, career and language skills as well as their 'soft' skills such as communication, independence and resilience. The partner organizations will increase their intercultural understanding, learning more about each other's countries and cultures. Through the project we also expect the organizations to increase our youth work capacity. We expect the partner organizations to develop their relationships and that we will work together on EVS and other Erasmus+ projects in the future. We expect the local communities and general public to learn about the Erasmus+ programme through this EVS and that it will promote their participation in it.
