Our project aims to, with the help of volunteers from other cultures, offer creative leisure engagements to the participants in our youth activities in the municipality of Sundsvall, that originates from their needs and interests. The basis for these activities is that everybody is welcome, regardless of ethnical and socio-economically background, physical or psychological disability, religious outlook, gender and sexual orientation. A solidarity approach will saturate all activities that the volunteers will participate in or operate themselves. In short terms, the project aims to increase all youth’s participation and engagement in their own leisure time on a local social level. In the long term, we expect the volunteers to influence the activities with their own experiences and knowledge from their respective countries, in order to strengthen the young people’s views on democracy and European citizenship. We think this will improve their ability to meet social challenges.

The volunteers are accommodated in a 4 room apartment, each having their own room and one room for common activities. The apartment is fully equipped with a kitchen and bathroom. The volunteer will get about 4100 SEK/month for food and private expenses. The volunteers can also eat occasionally in the venues they work in. Local transportation will be cover by the project with a bus card, and a sim card for Telefon costs. Also, there is a possibility to choose sport activity.
