Youth Exchante “Picture’s up” – Poland

The Picture’s Up project was created to give participants the opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills in the use of film and the theater to convey message. We want this project to encourage young people to become interested in art and to find new, creative ways to use it. In order to achieve this, participants will take part in many activities that will enable them to let go of their imagination. Together, among others, we will make films and perform theater plays. In addition, an important aspect of the exchange will be getting the knowledge of the history of all partner countries about the theater, cinema and the censorship and propaganda that was applied there. Each of us will be able to participate actively and will have an equal contribution to the course of the exchange. The exchange will involve 40 people from eight European Union countries: Poland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and France.

Improving Youth Employment Through Volunteering Across Europe

With rising youth unemployment rates throughout Europe, finishing formal education no longer guarantees a job. Many young people are looking for solutions, and the European Volunteering Service (EVS) is one of them for thousands of youth every year. But does this Service increase the employability of the volunteers? Can the quality of these projects be raised in order to make the EVS volunteers better equipped for the job market after they return home? How can we do that?

These are the questions that the project aims to find answers to. The project aims to raise the quality of EVS projects with a focus on increasing the employability of EVS volunteers. For a full 24 months we will involve participants from partner countries in this ambitious project, which will formally start with a 7 days training course in Viseu, follow with more 3 trainings also in Portugal .

The participants will reflect on how we can improve the sense of European Citizenship among the EVS volunteers, as well as how we can increase their sense of initiative and entrepreneurship. Even more, we will explore together on how to use digital tools in our youth work with the EVS volunteers and reflect on the importance of interculturality and tolerance in this kind of projects. But all of these will not be limited to the participants and their organizations, but to a much larger audience. With the help of the tool kit and other extensive dissemination measures, the project will make available the project results to thousands of organizations, young people and youth workers throughout Europe.
