In the period between 2018 and 2020 Alternativi International has implemented the project Volunteering 4 Strategic development and hosted overall of 58 young people from Italy, Spain, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Latvia, France, Portugal, Slovakia, Romania, Turkey and Ukraine. The project was financed by Erasmus+ program of the European Commission.
The project was focused on to ensuring access to quality youth information, changing the cultural model by providing extracurricular and leisure activities for young people ; promoting volunteering as a value and encouraging more young people to take part in volunteering activities on local and international level.
Here we are sharing few of the stories and inspirational words of the volunteers who took part in the project!
“‘I was a volunteer in Alternativi international for 9 months. It was one of the best period in my life because you have the opportunity to know people from other countries and learn more about different cultures. I improved a lot my level of English language and other skills like “video making”, “writing articles for a blog” and organizing events… Volunteering is a period in your life where you can know more about yourself and about what you would like to do in your future. In the Alternativi Family you will have the opportunity to grow up in an environment full of young people and you will enjoy your life learning, travelling and making good experiences.”
