PRESS RELEASE No 1
CREA.T.Y.V PROJECT – LAUNCH AND KICK OFF MEETING
Asociatia Habilitas - Centrul de Resurse si Formare Profesionala is very pleased to announce the launch of the 2 year EU funded “CREA.T.Y.V - CREATIVE DRAMA FOR TRAINING YOUNG VOLUNTEERS IN INTERGENERATIONAL LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS” Project. This is an Erasmus + Strategic Partnerships for Youth project, financed by the European Union through A.N.P.C.D.E.F.P. (the Romanian National Agency). The project will target young people with fewer opportunities and will involve older people as mentors in intergenerational activities in the volunteering field thus supporting young people to be active factors in communities and to build up their skills and potential. In this way, young people can become involved in changing society aspects and build their future. The project will train young people to be volunteers through creative drama in intergenerational environments, offering them the opportunity to develop social and civic competences, and to contribute to social change. Using creative drama in training is about directly involving people, and specific groups, in improving their own quality of life and skills and challenging a variety of social and cultural issues. Young (18-25) and old (+60) people are two social groups that are most confronted with marginalization and stereotyping. The aim of the project is to provide non-formal learning opportunities to young people (18-25 years old) with fewer opportunities through a mentoring / intergenerational training program in the volunteering field, using creative drama, offering to young generations seniors volunteers as mentors, creating new skills useful for their social development and integration on the labour market. The programme will be delivered in partnership with other 4 European partners, namely Asociatia Pro Vobis - Centrul National de Resurse pentru Voluntariat (Romania), Anziani e non solo (Italy), Evropska rozovojova agentura – European Development Agency (Czech Republic) and The Gaiety School of Acting (Ireland). All partners met in Bucharest on the 11th and 12th of May 2017 for the kick off meeting, and discussed all aspects related to the project’s progress and achievement of Intellectual Outputs, as well as next steps.
