The Portuguese Red Cross Youth is going to host eight young volunteers in the cities of Braga, Cucujães, Guimarães, São João da Madeira and Vila Nova de Gaia, in an ESC volunteering project called: Acting Local, Changing Global. During 12 months, these volunteers will carry out different activities that aim to foster solidarity in children and youngsters, not only amongst themselves, but also towards every human being, regardless of nationality, gender or race. Volunteers will work effectively in the social inclusion of children and vulnerable young people living in these communities. At the same time they will develop their own personal and social skills. Our aim is to include the volunteers in the projects of these Portuguese Red Cross youth structures if they feel motivated, but also allow their participation when it comes to event planning and communication activities and even motivate them to create their own projects and develop their ideas among our target groups.
ACCOMMODATION, FOOD AND TRANSPORT ARRANGEMENTS
Food, accommodation, language course, local transport and pocket money will be covered by the Host Organization, according to the programme rules. 100% of travels costs will also be reimbursed by bank transfer according to the maximum budget approved by European Commission for every country.
