YAGO (Youth Activism Generates Opportunity) is a youth exchange born with
the objective - the same objective shared by the partner organisations - to
motivate and to support the youngsters to be involved in the social community
through the activism in all its form (social- activism, e-activism etc.) and in a
national and international contest explaining them, also, the 20 years
opportunity of the European Voluntary service (EVS). Promote the Active
Citizenship and to fight the juvenile apathy is extremely important especially
because some participants are Refugees, Migrants, belong in a Minority
Culture and came from condition of Geographical disadvantage.
Through the activities of this youth exchange, which will be based on nonformal
education, the participants will learn skills and competences that they
will use in their daily life (work life, university life, free time) in this way we
will create a “activism domino”, they will share their personal experience and
skills to their peers that who in turn will be encouraged to do the same.
