Equal Volunteering Opportunities for All


1-7 September 2019 | Vilanova i la Geltrú (Barcelona), Catalonia, Spain

'Equal Volunteering Opportunities for All' is a 7 day youth worker mobility Seminar. A group of 25 participants from 13 countries will work on how to help young people, nationals of non-EU countires, to become active volunteers and community leaders.

KA1 Mobility of Youth Workers Seminar 'Equal Volunteering Opportunities for All'

Venue: Hotel Cesar, Vilanova i la Geltrú (Barcelona), Catalonia, Spain

Date: September 1st (arrival day) – September 7th (departure day)

Participating countries: Portugal, Bulgaria, Italy, Ireland, Hungary, Greece, North Macedonia, Germany, United Kingdom, Croatia, Turkey, Romania, Spain. 

Specifically, we are looking for a maximum of 3 participants in total. The participants can be from the following countries: Bulgaria, Italy, Greece, North Macedonia, Groatia or Romania. 

The reason why we are convening youth workers and leaders from NGOs and volunteer centers from around Europe is to reflect and learn together about the nature of volunteering, which is seen as an activity to be enjoyed by everybody, while thinking forward about its potential to engage one specific group of people that is often ignored: young people who are nationals of third non-EU countries (excluding Turkey and North Macedonia, E+ program countries) who are living in Europe, including migrants, refugees and members of a cultural minority, with fewer opportunities and at risk of social exclusion and poverty, due to several factors, including being discriminated against and seen by an increasing number of people as ‘newcomers’ or ‘foreigners’, even if they were born in Europe. This seminar is about why and, specially, HOW we can encourage their participation in volunteering activities and projects, as a valid way to be part of the society, develop relevant competences and, even, to become leaders of new initiatives, promoted by voluntary based NGOs, including the seminar promoter organizations themselves.

The 5 specific key competences (knowledge, skills and attitudes) we are focusing on are: 1) volunteer management; 2) intercultural communication; 3) cultural diversity management; 4) conflict management and 5) global awareness.

The seminar objectives are:

  • To learn how to be more inclusive to people with a diverse cultural background, both in theory and practice.
  • To learn how to diversify, increase and improve the support given to young people who are migrants, refugees and part of a cultural minority to encourage them to become leaders of new projects and activities.
  • To encourage a real exchange of ideas, information, tools, methodologies, practices, activities and projects regarding integration of third national countries.
  • To promote cooperation and networking among youth workers (volunteer leaders, managers, mentors and supervisors) and NGOs active in the field of non-formal learning and volunteering at the European level.
