WE FUTURE | Youth Transforming Europe (1 April 2019 – 30 September 2020)

It is a European project which involves young people from three countries: Portugal, France and Romania, that seeks to boost young people’s contribution in building more solidarity, equalitarian and sustainable societies.

In the scope of this project, the realization of three international meetings is foreseen, each of them lasting 5 days. They will constitute a space for young people to reflect and debate themes such as Human Rights, Social Justice, Peace, Diversity, Gender Equality and Environmental Sustainability.

The first international meeting will take place in Golegã, in the summer of 2019, the second in Toulouse, in December of 2019, and the last one in Cluj-Napoca, in the summer of 2020.

Furthermore, it is expected that the group composed of 18 young people develop awareness raising initiatives in their local communities.

Moments of discussion, reflection and sharing will be provided, which hopefully will contribute to the:

  • Valorization of linguistic, religious and cultural diversity.
  • Development of a feeling of belonging to a unique Europe and a common Humanity.
  • Deepen the critical and problematizing comprehension of the global challenges.
  • Knowledge, abilities, attitudes and values acquisition aligned with respect for Human Rights, Social Justice, Peace, Diversity, Gender Equality and Environmental Sustainability.
  • Participation in collaborative processes for finding alternatives that contribute to overcoming collective, local and global problems.

Land of Games (1 June 2017 – 31 October 2018)

The project is part of the European Voluntary Service of the Erasmus+ Programme and its main activity consist of a 12 months long volunteering stage (01/09 /2017 – 31/08/2018) of 6 young people aged 18-24 in Cluj-Napoca.

The project “Land of Games” was coordinated by our NGO in cooperation with 6 partner organisations from 5 European countries: Kölner Freiwilligen Agentur e.V. (Germany), aha Tipps und Infos für junge Leute (Germany), Associação Spin (Portugal), Associació Alba (Spain), Maison de l’Europe Bordeaux – Aquitaine (France) and Internationaler Bund Polska (Poland).

The project was developed in the context of the successful cooperation CVCN has developed  both with the international partners that have the role in the process of recruitment, preparation and sending of the international volunteers, and with the local organizations and public institutions where the volunteering activities were carried out – the “Ioan Alexandru” Secondary School Sinpaul, the Secondary School Tureni, the “Gheorghe Sincai” Secondary School Floresti, the Prison Fellowship Romania Foundation and the Down Association Raluca Educational Centre.

The main objective of the project tackled two main areas: to create a frame which encouraged the personal and professional development of the 6 volunteers on one side, and to impact the the community development through the volunteering work. The beneficiaries of the international volunteering activities (non-formal education activities) are various disadvantaged groups: primary school children from rural multiethnic areas, teenagers at risk for school dropout, children with precarious socio-economic situation, young adults with Down Syndrome, etc.

Beside these permanent activities (facilitation of weekly intercultural clubs in the 3 rural primary schools, free time activities and socio-cultural animation), the project included other activities as well: the organization of public events for the promotion of volunteering in the local community, meetings with Romanian young people interested in volunteering stages abroad, educational workshops using board games, a board games caravan in 10 schools of Cluj county, etc.

Thereby, through the “Land of Games” project CVCN extended its expertise in relation to the variety of direct beneficiaries, the approach and the types of activities carried out.

D.E.A.F (Development, Employability, Accesibility, Future) for DEAF (1 septembrie 2016 – 31 mai 2017)

Proiectul “D.E.A.F (Development, Employability, Accesibility, Future) for DEAF” este coordonat de Asociatia Alter Ego, Grecia in parteneriat cu Centrul de Voluntariat Cluj-Napoca si Asociatia Nationala a Interpretilor Autorizati in Limbaj Mimico-Gestual, Romania, Asociatia ALBA, Spania si SHRUTI, Nepal. Proiectul a pornit de la o serie de dificultati identificate in cele 4 tari participante, printre care: lipsa unei cooperari constante intre organizatiile de tineret si organizatiile ce ofera servicii tinerilor surzi, marginalizarea tinerilor surzi si participarea scazuta a acestora in proiecte Erasmus+, accesibilitatea scazuta a tinerilor surzi la oportunitati educationale si de formare, etc.
Toate acestea creeaza un context ce limiteaza participarea tinerilor surzi la activitati de voluntariat sau de schimburi internationale. Proiectul abordeaza aceasta situatie prin planificarea unei serii de activitati focusate pe acest grup tinta:
– stagii de voluntariat de scurta durata, prin Serviciul European de Voluntariat (SEV) – prin intermediul SEV, organizatiile implicate vor realiza un program de schimburi de voluntari, surzi si auzitori; timp de 2 luni, acestia vor desfasura activitati de voluntariat in comunitatile gazda (Kathmandu, Tesaloniki, Tarrega si Cluj-Napoca), pornind de la nevoile acestora dar si de la interesele voluntarilor;
– vizite de studiu pentru lucratori de tineret – respectand acelasi principiu al schimburilor intre tari, lucratori de tineret din Romania, Grecia, Spania si Nepal vor beneficia de o perioada de 2 saptamani de vizita de studiu in alta tara din proiect; aceasta va fi focusata pe identificarea de activitati si metode pentru stimularea implicarii tinerilor surzi;
– eveniment final – Conferinta de inchidere a proiectului ce va avea loc la inceputul anului 2017.
Proiectul “D.E.A.F (Development, Employability, Accesibility, Future) for DEAF” este finantat de Comisia Europeana, prin Programul Erasmus +, Actiunea Cheie 2, Consolidarea capacitatilor in domeniul tineretului.

Ready for diversity (1 iunie 2016 – 30 noiembrie 2017)

Proiectul “Ready for diversity” este implementat de catre Centrul de Voluntariat Cluj-Napoca, in parteneriat cu 5 organizatii de trimitere din Germania, Spania, Austria si Portugalia, prin Programul Erasmus+. Principala activitate a acestuia include un stagiu SEV pentru 6 tineri din tarile mentionate, durata acestuia fiind de 12 luni (septembrie 2016 – august 2017).

Proiectul isi propune sa promoveze implicarea voluntarilor in institutiile publice (spital si scoli) si sa contribuie la promovarea voluntariatului in general si a Serviciului European de Voluntariat in mod specific. In acealsi timp, proiectul este conceput intr-o maniera care sa faciliteze dezvoltarea personala si profesionala a celor 6 voluntari SEV prin asigurarea sistemului de suport necesar dar si prin cresterea treptata a gradului de independenta in activitati, in functie de dorintele si nevoile voluntarilor.

Voluntarii sunt implicati in activitati de animatie clinica in diverse sectii ale spitalului de copii din Cluj-Napoca. In acelasi timp ei organizeaza activitati de educatie non-formala in cadrul unui club multicultural pentru elevii de scoala primara din trei comunitati rurale din jurul orasului (Floresti, Tureni si Sinpaul ). In a doua parte a stagiului, voluntarii vor pregati evenimente publice de promovare a voluntariatului in cadrul Saptamanii Nationale a Voluntariatului (mai 2017) si se vor focusa pe implementarea propriilor idei in comunitatea locala, prin proiectele personale.

Proiectul „Ready for diversity” este finantat de Comisia Europeana prin programul Erasmus+, un program administrat in Romania de Agentia Nationala pentru Programe Comunitare in Domeniul Educatiei si Formarii Profesionale.
