Since 2017 You in Europe started hosting volunteers through the European Voluntary Service (currently known as European Solidarity Corps) of Erasmus+ in the city of Nea Moudania. The major tasks of the volunteers are to support actions and events of local organizations and volunteering teams. The volunteers mainly offer their time to the After School Creative Centre Children, the Creative Centre for people with Disabilities, the cultural organisation of FAROS, the Sports Club of POM, and to the mobility projects of You in Europe.
In 2018 You in Europe became a co-coordinating organization too, bringing together volunteers from all over Europe and Greek NGOS that would like to benefit from the ESC program. Our first co-operation started with SFA, an NGO based in Thessaloniki that supports and educates people with disabilities. SFA has hosted 2 volunteers from Germany and Spain, who offered their time working in the field, and for 2020 it will host 3 volunteers.
You can see here the volunteering experience of our first volunteers in Greece, Tiago Reis from Portugal and Carlos Fuentes from Spain. This website was created by them, during their project.
