Take the next step’ is a 4-day training seminar aimed at transforming an international voluntary experience of returning volunteers into active citizenship in local community, with a thematic focus on young refugees. The venue is the Saint John Bosco College in Battersea (UK), from 16/11/2016 until 21/11/2016.
Do you want to share your experiences as international volunteer with peers from other countries? Do you want to fight for Human Rights of young refugees? Do you want to do something with your voluntary service abroad now you have returned?
Don Bosco Youth-Net is organizing a European seminar for returned volunteers, who want to use their experiences abroad to start-up initiatives catering for young refugees in their local communities. The programme starts with drawing a map of all participants’ voluntary service projects. We will explore the Human Rights aspects of these projects, and discuss on the difference between voluntary service and active citizenship. At the end of the seminar look at which local initiatives we can take ourselves.
The seminar takes place at the Salesian School in Battersea-London (United Kingdom) 16-21/12/2016. In the submenus you can find more information about the project, the programme, and the venue.
