Solidarity Corps – Call for international volunteers 2021

International Volunteering – European Solidarity Corps | 6 months | Agualva, Portugal

Welcome to the UrbanAct project. We are happy to host two volunteers from Spain and Italy for a six months of international experience connected to European Solidarity Corps European programme.

Join our team and support our pedagogic action in and out of a community centre! Our mission is to provide opportunities for the empowerment and awareness of young people, using Youth Work and community-oriented approaches.

The project will focus on engaging young people in educational,  occupational and volunteering activities and small interventions to promote Sustainable Development, Civic and Human Rights Education.

You will have the opportunity to support different activities and projects. We are flexible to adapt the activities to the areas you would like to explore, adding the possibility of creating a local action or workshop in our organisation.

Our action consists of a balance of administrative, office work and actual activities and projects with logistic support, plus we also invest a lot of effort in creating informative content for our social media, which, the volunteers, can also contribute.

"Through your participation in the European Solidarity Corps, you will get the chance to live in another country, get to know a new culture and a new language. You will make new friends – within and beyond your organization. Not only will you provide a service to the benefit of your organization and the local community, but you will also develop your own personal, social and professional skills."
