Youth in Action EVS “Volunteering in Kirov”

Volunteering in Kirov

MVNGO achieved financial support for the EVS project “Volunteering in Kirov” which gave a young italian volunteer the opportunity to spend 10 months in Russia.

The project was supported by the Russian organization Vyatka Humanitarian Gymnasia, which provided an advanced course of English.

The project was implemented with the support of the organization SFERA, experienced in the EVS field.

Gymnasia has experience in international youth field and implements international youth programmes around the year.

One of the main aims of hosting an EVS volunteer in the organization was to allow young people to know about new cultures and languages, to experience non-formal education and to learn through after-class activities and voluntary actions.

Also the project was targeted at developing international cooperation in the field of volunteering and active citizenship.

One volunteer from Italy, Luca Argalia, was selected by Mine Vaganti NGO and  took part in the 10 months project in Russia.

The main objectives of the project were:

– promotion of tolerance between different countries for youth and children in Kirov,

– implementation of international projects and events for young people,

– organizational and methodical, analytical and informational support for staff of the hosting organization in sphere of social and cultural projects and events and youth leisure.

All this objectives were achieved through the active participation of the volunteer. Luca brought new ideas into the work of the organization.
