Quartiers en crise, jeunesse en mouvement / ACT

Active Program

The "ACT" project aims at creating innovative citizen pathways for young people with fewer opportunities, by providing them with the opportunity to realize a volunteering project with migrants or refugees in Greece or Italy. The project will involve 54 youngsters from the deprived neighborhoods of Roubaix, Liverpool and Brussels and from Greece and Italy in volunteering projects supporting vulnerable migrants. The objectives are to:

- Develop volunteering projects to promote the inclusion and integration of unemployed young people at risk of exclusion or victims of discriminations and potential radicalisation

- Allow these young people to get involved with newly arrived migrants in order to develop values of citizenship, solidarity and tolerance

- Disseminate the good practices of the project and success stories of these young people and to make their experience known in their sending communities, and especially in the deprived neighborhoods they come from. The objective is to attract other young people towards volunteering projects and to fight against the risks of isolation and violent radicalization.

In order to achieve these aims, the 6 partners of the project will:

- Share existing good practices related to sending and hosting volunteers

- Create a new training for young people so that they can work properly with newly arrived migrants or refugees

- Send 45 volunteers in projects in Greece and Italy (in projects with migrant)

- Organize 9 volunteering projects at the local level

- Create videos and dissemination tools illustrating citizen pathways of the volunteers, before their departure and during their project to show the values of engagement and solidarity

- Disseminate these good practices and these videos in the deprived neighborhoods to fight against exclusion and radicalization

- Work closely with institutions and organize a large dissemination event at the end in Brussels involving decision makers in order to make recommendations on youth policy.
