Local youth inititatives
A solidarity project is an in-country solidarity activity initiated, developed and implemented by young people themselves for a period from two to twelve months. It gives a group of minimum five young people the chance to express solidarity by taking responsibility and committing to bring positive change in their local community. The project should have a clearly identified topic which participants of the group wish to explore together and which has to be translated into the concrete daily activities of the project and involve all the participants. Participation in a solidarity project is an important non-formal learning experience through which young people can enhance their personal, educational, social and civic development. Solidarity Projects should be local but they should also clearly present European added value through addressing priorities identified at European level within the framework of the European Solidarity Corps.
We believe that this program is an accessible and empowering way to make young people's voices heard. In 2020-2021 we assisted 3 amazing and proactive groups of young people to realize their ideas and make a positive change in the community. From September 2022 we are happy to provide administrative support for Dreammakers group for the succesful implementation their project.
