Agora Aveiro has new volunteers
YALA is a long-term international project, starting in February, 2015. Agora Aveiro received four volunteers: Tanja from Latvia, Wiola from Poland, and Tea and Jasna from Croatia.
One of the goals of Agora Aveiro is to raise awareness for social issues and promote a more active community. These are the areas that our volunteers, under the project YALA (Your Active Life in Aveiro), will develop during their stay of seven months. They will help organize local activities for Agora Aveiro, including workshops, presentations and guerrilla actions, share their ideas and manage their own projects with the help of our local volunteers. Ideally, volunteers should develop long-term projects that are sustainable even after they have gone. In this way, they can have a greater impact on the local community. The volunteers will also join the TEDxAveiro team and help prepare the great TEDx conference.
This EVS (European Voluntary Service) has a strong intercultural component, since Agora Aveiro regularly organizes meetings of people from all over the world who live in Aveiro.
