SERVIÇO VOLUNTÁRIO EUROPEU: ROMENIA- "S.M.A.R.T – Simply just Make A Romanian Trip" 9 Meses (Setembro 2014 a Maio 2015)

Our project is called "S.M.A.R.T – Simply just Make A Romanian Trip", and it's going to start in  September 2014, for a 9 months period, untill May 2015.

The project was born from our organization's desire to bring the
youngsters from our local communities, where the project is going to be
implemented, one step closer to European Union and its youngsters.

Nowadays Romanian youngsters are facing a series of problems that can affect them on long time perspective.
Put it on briefly, some of the problems that they are facing are:

- youngsters don't care much about the environment and are not taking any
actions for preserving or cleaning it;
- the youngster perception about European Union is very low and they don't
have good knowledge about the role of Romania as a state member is about,
and also about their role in the society as European citizens;
- most of the youngsters know very little about the other countries that
are EU members and about other countries outside EU;
- the gap between Roma youngsters and the other youngsters is very deep,
both ethnics are manifesting low tolerance for the other, situation that
should not exist in the "European Family";
- a lot of kids are left home only with their grandparents, because the
parents are working outside Romania's borders, a thing that has major
repercussions in the youngster life, affecting them on a personal, social
or educational level; etc.

For the reasons mentioned above and more, our organization decided to
develop this EVS. Through this project our organisation will try to solve some of the problems that our youngsters are confronting with, by working with volunteers and developing a series of activities. The activities developed inside this project are going to be conducted on several plans: working in schools and highschools with youngsters, working in special schools with youngsters with disabilities (mobility problems, blind youngsters, hearing problems, etc.), art and culture work in institutions and centers that are working with youngsters (dance, theatre, photography, organising concerts, music, etc.), ecological campaigns, workshops, etc.

Activities developed in the project are going to be:

It's an activity with youngsters inside the schools. The activity will put in contact the youngsters from our schools with the others from the schools in volunteers countries, by creating a bridge between them with the help of the postcards, made by them. The youngsters will create the postcards  and sent them to the others from the partner schools. In this way they will manage to create a very good connection between schools from Romania, and schools from volunteers home countryes.

It is a project that, together with the POSTCARD PROJECT, will even bring closer the youngsters coming from different backgrounds, societies, economical environment, social and ethnic, and will contribute at promoting better understanding and collaboration among them. This activity will be conducted on 2 plans: on one plan the youngsters will have to write hand letters and send them to the youngsters in schools abroad, and on the other hand they will have to write them online letters, through social networks, developing their IT skills.

With this ecological activities we are trying
to motivate the youngsters, to make them more responsible and more concerned related
to environmental problems. Also the photos and the exhibition, that will gather all the
photos, is going to stimulate their creativity, innovation and
Theatre is a project that will contribute in improving and developing new abilities to all the persons involved, both volunteers and youngsters.
Will have the role to teach the youngsters about the European Union, about its values, about its countries.

The volunteers will have the chance to put the basis
of an newspaper, where they are going to be the coordinators an the
editors. They'll have the chance to learn or improve their artistic
skills, in creating the layout of the newspaper, and their journalistic
- "BUCHAREST - begin of the journey"
It is going to be a small travel
guide that will contain information about the journeys that you made
around the country, tips and advices about some of the experiences that
you had on your traveling and other information that you would like to
Besides the activities that we described you, and other more, your ideas about other activities that you would like to develop here will be most than welcomed and put into practice.
Workshops like: body language, foreign language, cooking, handy crafts, dance and a lot of other themes that can be implemented by the volunteers together with the youngsters from the communities where the volunteers will live and work.

Based on our previous experiences, we've learned that a project
like this will suit best to volunteers which are:
.       creative
.       open to discover and willing to get involved in new experiences
.       happy to work with young people (even kids of 13-17 years);
