Youth Dialogue and Local Development

Multilateral EVS project in EU (Germany, Iceland, Italy, Lithuania) and SEE (Albania, Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro, Macedonia)       

14 long-term volunteer placements from August 2006 to May 2007

The main project aims were to enhance young people’s participation, leadership skills and their engagement in civil society in European Union and South Eastern European countries as well as to facilitate dialogue and exchange between young volunteers and youth from minority groups. Volunteers were placed both in youth NGO’s and public institutions running awareness-raising and civic education programmes with young people from multicultural, multiethnic and multi-faith backgrounds to empower their participation in local campaigns and local development.
