This Erasmus Plus project is inspired by no one else than Erasmus himself. Erasmus of Rotterdam was a Dutch humanist, Catholic priest, social critic, teacher and theologian, and represents an important personality of the Renaissance period.
One of his most famous quotes is: “Prevention is better than cure”. This simple motto can hold the key, in our opinion, to almost all the problems emerging nowadays. With a level of 10% unemployment among the European youth and almost 75 million youngsters all over the world not finding a suitable job, we can undoubtedly conclude that youth unemployment, as well as its causes (scholar abandon, lack of career orientation and proper competences) represents a problem.
We know that big changes don‟t come overnight so we decided to tackle this problem with small, but steady steps, in a project meant to promote volunteering and non-formal education as ways that could prevent, in the future, the problems mentioned above. From our experience, we believe that being an active volunteer in youth NGOs and using non-formal education will help valuing and developing your native resources (language, artistic skills etc.) so that you could gain confidence and experience as a future professional and of course, person.
The project “Care Today, Cure Tomorrow!” is going to be a long term EVS of 10 months at the end of which the foreign volunteers will gain and improve their linguistic and digital competences, as well as their soft skills. They will be given Romanian classes and they will experience being language teachers by non-formal methods, finally having to create book guides that would contain ideas and presentations of the non-formal methods they used. Because we appreciate new initiative in matters of voluntary activities, the hosted volunteers will create and implement their own activities, with the support of our staff.
