Municipality of Xylokastro – Evrostini
Start: 1st May for 1 year
The purpose of our organization is the utilization of free time, informing young people about international and national programs, and the encouragement of their active participation along with their European citizenship.
Furthermore, our goal is to organize and support national programs of the partner municipalities, heritage protection activities of the environment and organizing summer events, festivals, concerts, theatrical performances, exhibitions in cooperation with the local municipalities. Through our activities we try to develop solidarity and promote tolerance and understanding among young people in different countries. Our priorities are respecting cultural
diversity, fighting against racism and xenophobia. By facilitating joint activities of young people from different cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds, Orfeas aims to develop the intercultural learning of young people making Europe a friendlier place in the same time.
An important value for Orfeas Organization is to give access to all young people, especially those with fewer opportunities, to join European youth programme and other educational activities. Through formal/non-formal learning techniques and experiences, young volunteers will improve and acquire skills for their personal, educational and professional development.
