ZUM Association is a youth association located in Pula, Croatia. Since it’s beginnings in 2001, the Association has been empowering generations of youth to be more active and make positive changes in their local community. ZUM advocates and promotes full inclusion of youth in global society through information sharing, networking, non-formal education and youth policy development. Since 2006 ZUM is publishing youth magazine 3ska!!! which is free of any commercial content, written by youth and for youth.
Tasks and activities
– In Youth Info-centre: we are informing youth on a daily basis about educational and mobility opportunities, local events and free time activities. We support them in international mobilities and motivate them to took part in one. Volunteer will actively search for information, write articles for web page, Youth magazine 3ska!!!, European Youth Portal, create multimedia informative campaigns. From EVS we expect to have some passion for writing and multimedia, but not necessarily any previous experiences.
– Educational/promotional events: volunteers will organize promotional events in schools, university, community centre, in local park or on the street (guerrilla marketing). They should be done in creative and informative way, to catch attention and raise curiosity of youngsters for out-of school activities, mobilities (especially EVS), to motivate them for youth exchanges and other European mobilities. Those events would be carried on at least once a month.
– Festival of mobility, we would like to establish one-day event: Festival of Mobiliy which aim would be to promote different type of mobilities (educational, cultural, turist) and alternative ways of traveling (low cost, car pooling, hosting communities ect). From volunteers we will expect contribution in preparation of event (active search for interesting guests, contacting guests, organization support, visibility, promotion…) as well as content preparation for the Festival.
– Personal event: having a personal project in an EVS is the most inspiring part for the volunteer. The volunteers will be given an opportunity to organize an event in Croatia that is non-profit, to support the local community and involve at least 30 people.
