The hosting organisation wants, this presented project, to be as multifaceted as possible, in order to raise awareness of the local community that will contact the volunteers, who have very different personal and professional interests. This need is based on the building of an open society to pluralism, interculturalism, tolerance, protection of the environment and all other European values. From this we define our next general objectives:

The tasks to be performed by the volunteers, will depend on his skills and knowledge, and will be adapted to the profile of each one of them, however, the activities that we consider appropriate in view of the general objectives presented:

They should be dynamic, versatile and demonstrate a capacity for autonomy and a taste for teamwork, presenting characteristics of communicative, available, flexible and creative nature.
Volunteers should demonstrate interest at working for the community in general, including in the areas of education and youth (2 volunteers), environmental (1volunteer) and cultural (all).

The JFE is characterized by an active participation in collaboration and institutional, financial and human support to different associations of the city, responsible for the development of different types of animation, cultural and human enrichment, close to local communities and its action groups. It should be noted the constant concern in the support and development of support systems for young people, as part of its professional valorization and development of youth and personal skills. In view of the foregoing, the JFE feels the increasingly urgent need for dissemination and awareness of all young people to the importance of a global and European society, contributing to the search for a more inclusive and cohesive society that will motivate the citizens to play an active role in democratic life, to promote social integration, improve intercultural understanding and to promote sustainable development and green citizenship.
