Project description
In 2013, the Association conducted a survey among non-governmental organizations in the Olkusz municipality and it showed that they were getting young volunteers to work with them, but those were mostly single actions. There was no mechanism to support socially active students (volunteers, student self-governments). While answering the questions prepared for developing the project, the students and their teachers often pointed out that they lacked the skills necessary for undertaking responsible initiatives.
The aim of the project implementation was to prepare young people from the Olkusz municipality to perform various social roles in a professional and responsible manner.
33 young local leaders were trained on how to develop and implement community projects.
Two training cycles were conducted for youth leaders and voluntary work coordinators. Young people implemented 24 social mini projects addressed to 2,700 people. They also prepared one project designed for the town participatory budget.
Secondary education students from the Olkusz municipality will be the beneficiaries of the project implementation.
The project partner – the Volunteer Centre in Zamość - facilitated the training on international exchange of volunteer projects.
