Description of the project: The name of the project is Volunteering 4 All, which symbolizes that the volunteers from different countries working together with Hungarian volunteers will make an impact that can help develop each other. The main aim of the project is promoting the multicultural actions and giving possibilities for the volunteers to learn how they can motivate young people to participate. Volunteers can put into practical ideas, share things about their culture and make a kind of „intercultural dialogue” about important questions in society. The way of achieving it can be by clubs, sport, volunteering, and other cultural actions in the office of the association. During the project, the volunteers can improve their language knowledge, communication skills, social and life guide competences, get to know more about new cultures and people as well as get lifelong experiences. Our goal is to give the experiences of seeing how these activities organised and achieved in Hungary.
Description of the project: Through the volunteers, we would like to show that only because someone comes from different cultures or speaks different language still can be a valuable and exciting member of the society and the experience can be valuable for the local community. We believe that in this way we can motivate the Hungarian youngsters to spend more time of their spare time with the volunteer help. The knowledge of the volunteers and the materials what they prepared we can use to encourage the youngsters to take an active role and spend their free time effectively.
Through the volunteers, youngsters living in Hungary will have a chance to meet and get to know new cultures which will make them more open.
