I will start by saying that already during high school I have always been predisposed to live abroad, I lived a year in Argentina when I was still underage and just from that experience I realized that my life should be full of experiences outside of Italy. Continue reading

People who are writing this article are a group of youngsters who decided to depart for 10 days to the completely and absolutely unknown new country which is Armenia. We left on 20th of April thanks to one youth exchange within Erasmus+, under the title “Youth for the future” with a topic of environmental protection, recycling, and respect for nature. Wrapped in the dark and silent snowflakes, we arrived, late in the night in the city of Aghveran, the small village at 2000m altitude nestled between the Rocky Mountains and deep valleys in the region of Kotayk, a little more to the north of the capital city of Yerevan.
Often, because of the frenetic contemporary world, it could happen that all days are passing in the same way. However, there are experiences able to stop the time, to leave us the space to live and discover something new. Experiences made in one week can mean a lot more when you consider them as an experience in a year. Experiences that change your life and the perfection of the same, helping us understand how much this world is rich of differences which unite and can help us to understand better other people and why not, also ourselves. European youth exchanges are a tool to do it. And effectively youth exchange “Change 4 Europe” that was held in Portugal in a city that is around 1h far away from Lisbon in the period from 30 March until 8th of April 2018 promoted by Youmore Morcelli Giovani was one of these kinds of experiences. For each of these country participants, Italy, Portugal, Belgium, and France, have participated 6 youngsters plus one group leader. Topics that were discussed were: democracy, ideology and the solidarity towards those who need the most: objectives that were fully reached out. All youngsters, in fact, came back with a spiritual luggage full of spirits of humanity which will for sure leave a mark in their lives. Below you can take a look at some of their comments:

After a typical dinner in a restaurant in the center, we had enough time to rest in a traditional hammam (swimming pool, sauna and Turkish bath) in the hotel, making the most of this moment to meet our new adventure companions.

Europe of Possibilities
A year of European Voluntary Service in Finland
My name is Cristina, I am 27 years old and I come from Verona.
From 2016 to 2017 I had a possibility to perform National Civilian Service at Euro desk Center of Valpolicella-Valdadige and it was an amazing and eye-opening experience.
During this year of collaboration, one of my tasks was to organize the meetings in the High Schools of the county of Verona and to inform youngsters regarding the possible opportunities abroad offered by “Erasmus+” of the European Union. I stayed astonished by EVS, but still, I haven’t found the project that completely fits me in everything.
Until, in one extremely warm day in July, I saw on Youmore Morcelli Giovani Facebook page the news about one EVS project in Finland. Continue reading

When we arrived a shining sun was waiting for us, but in the first afternoon it set and we do not see it again during our permanence. What could we expect from a Swedish November? ☺ Continue reading

Il mio Servizio Volontario Europeo è iniziato abbastanza in salita, dovendo subentrare in un progetto già iniziato, ma soprattutto ritrovandomi in una città, Hradec Králové, e in un paese, la Repubblica Ceca, dalle usanze differenti a quelle a cui ero abituato in Italia. Fortunatamente, sono stato supportato parecchio sia dalla coordinatrice, sia dagli altri volontari, che quindi mi hanno decisamente facilitato le cose. Per me è stata dura anche iniziare una piccola nuova vita da solo, e dover pensare ad esempio a faccende alle quali comunque in Italia non dovevo pensare o, vivendo in famiglia, alle quali qualcun altro pensava al posto mio. Anche per quanto riguarda le attività non è stato facile, perché mi sono ritrovato a svolgere attività che non avevo mai svolto, come il lavoro coi bambini. Continue reading
