Application Form - F.R.I.E.N.D.S Project - ESC

"F.R.I.E.N.D.S. (Favorire Relazioni Inclusive Europee Non Discriminanti e Solidali)” project will be held in Siderno city (Southern Italy) and its surroundings for 11 months, between 1.10.2020 - 31.03.2022.

The period of service for the volunteer will be 1st March - 31st January 2022. Please consider that, due to the Pandemic Covid-19, the dates can be postponed.

The project will host 2 volunteers from Spain, Romania and other countries in Europe.

The approach of our organization is based on the promotion of solidarity through volunteering activities. We encourage, on a daily basis, young people and most of all our volunteers, to actively participate and cooperate in everyday life within our community.
By doing this we build trust in our people while increasing a personal, social and cultural growth of our volunteers. A fundamental part of our work is to promote cultural diversity, to create awareness about environmental issues and to fight every form of exclusion and discrimination.
Everything is structured in a community context through solidarity activities that aim to improve a positive societal change, professional and interpersonal growth and an increased employability opportunities, fostering cooperation in a high quality youth work frame.

The main programs and projects of YMCA Siderno are focused totally on youth needs for which we provide: trainings on various topics, summer days camps, workshops, international youth exchanges, festivals, sports events and environmental projects.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is the result and a protraction of what our association has been doing, in both local and international programs, over the past 12 years. Our first approach to Erasmus+ experiences dates back to 2016, when we hosted 3 YMCA’s volunteers from Ukraine, UK and The Netherlands.
