Volunteering for the Inclusion of Diverse Abilities
Date du début: 1 juil. 2014, Date de fin: 30 nov. 2015 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

This project has been developed on the basis of a strong existing partnership between the coordinating and receiving organisations and following on from a number of successful projects involving these organisations. The project aims to provide a positive non-formal learning experience for the 7 participants from 6 different European countries who will take part. The project will consist of two 11-month EVS activities which will take place at two organisations, Treloar Trust and the Orpheus Centre in the UK. The activities have been planned with clear learning objectives for the participants and with a strong focus on personal development and intercultural awareness. Both receiving organisations work to support young people with disabilities to fulfil their potential and to develop the skills needed to live as independent lives as possible. This project will bring an invaluable intercultural dimension to the work of the organisations and to the lives of the students they work with. This will be particular benefit to the students as they often have few opportunities to travel and experience other cultures. It is also expected that this project will support the work of the organisations in developing a greater awareness of disability, this will be reflected in the learning of the participants, the partner organisations and wider society. In the activities the participants will be actively involved in the day to day work of the organisations and their roles will focus on interaction with the students. The participants will have the chance to develop their role according to their personal interest. They will be provided with the necessary training and support to achieve the planned learning outcomes. It is expected that this project will also promote the positive aspects of cultural diversity within a team and at an organisational level as well as promoting the mutual benefits that can be attained through young people's active citizenship.
