“Social Alternations of Volunteering Examples” (S.A.V.E.) 12-20.04.2014

A group of young people from Armenia,  Serund Pan-Armenian youth Center NGO attended a Youth in Action Program in Kobuleti, Georgia, from the 12th to 20th April 2014. This program was funded by the EU “Youth in Action” Program entitled “Social Alternations of Volunteering Examples” (S.A.V.E.). 
All together  27 people from Armenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Italy, Romania, Spain, Turkey and Ukraine participated in the project.  The overall aim and objectives of the project were to provide  participants with theoretical and practical knowledge and experience,  develop competence of youth workers, youth leaders, multiples and volunteers to better improve the impact of cross-border volunteering in multicultural local communities. 
 A wide range of methods were used such as workshops, inputs, simulations, role games, presentations, discussions, etc. The workshops and exercises and the presentations were the tools to provide the participants with theoretical and practical knowledge and experiences according to the contents of the training course.
Participants explored how to increase the visibility of the Youth in Action programme by making current volunteers more visible in their hosting community and emphasizing their positive  contribution and obtain from intercultural communication. 
 All participants were nice and amazing people. We acquired new friends, shared our experience, made cross-cultural communication. We had an Intercultural evening, where the participants from other countries had an opportunity to identify our country and culture, customs and traditions.
This training was well organized by our Georgian friends. One day they took us to visit a lovely city Batumi, showed us Botanical Garden,  and then they organized a Georgian dinner with traditional food at a nice Georgian restaurant. In the last evening of our stay they cooked a Georgian barbeque, which we liked much.

We liked this project and highly recommend my friends to take part in a “Youth in Action” programmes.
