Profile of Volunteers

The volunteer should be dynamic, motivated, love to work in a multicultural and international team, responsible and sympathetic. We will give priority to volunteers with social and economic difficult backgrounds, or in situations of long term unemployment. The gender and age it’s not important (will be balanced) but it will be of great help that the volunteer speaks basic English. We can offer different level tasks on the project depending on the volunteers skills and learning expectations, never the less it will be of great importance that the sending organization (SO) inform us about the volunteers, about their difficulties, particular issues, diet, etc… Our goal after the project is that the volunteers should feel motivated to go on multiplying other projects in their own country

Unemployment, specially youth unemployment, is one of the major social concerns in Europe. This issue becomes more important in the countries where a stagnant economy with no growth prospects is unable to provide jobs for its people. The lack of employment opportunities in many countries makes talk of a lost generation. However, as consequence of the jobs crisis, more and more young are exploring an option of self-employment. Within these options gain strength cooperative models of organization based in peer collaboration and in the economy with «human face». However, the social economy offers an opportunity for future that is still unknown to most of young people and many of them are still unaware of the advantages of undertaking seeking not only financial performance but also social.
Ideas in Action is a project which aims to spread the concept of social entrepreneurship among youngsters from six different countries. For 7 workdays we’ll gather 24 young people from Spain, Portugal, Italy, Poland, Romania and Greece in order to create a space for exchanging experiences and inspiration. Nicentbatcardta . Ideas in Action is a project created to promote and encourage the entrepreneurial spirit of our participants and by extension their communities of origin. We aim to encourage and reinforce this feeling in the young people, so that they can consider entrepreneurship with social sensibilities not only as a citizenship responsibility but also as an opportunity for job creation With this objective in mind we’ll organize presentations, field visits, group work and dynamics in sessions aimed at sharing ideas and translate them into concrete projects.
