Being volunteer is not a little thing. I remember my childhood and first steps into voluterism .. it was like a bliss that finding. I could help, participate, been active in so many fields since then.
Being volunteer is a task that everyone need to try!
There are thousands and thousands of problems that occupy are world today, d strategy for making our place better for our future generations is to get involved. The money are not the problem, we always don’t have them, satiric sarcasm that comes from my country. But if u try to forget the money that u’ll see incredible things in d circles where people work hard and promote d volunteers benefits.
I have experience in volunteering over 10 years already, but in my skin I feel like I just start d long distance work. So many things can be changed in my surrounding and I just know that this is d only way. Working with different target groups, trying to make small steps for brighter tomorrow is good decision, when u’re volunteer u can practice d things that u know but learn so much more.

The program that I start using after my high school is well known in d youth area, it’s called Youth in action and engaged a lot of youngsters from all Europe.Youth in Action is the EU Programme for young people aged 15-28 (in some cases 13-30). It aims to inspire a sense of active citizenship, solidarity and tolerance among young Europeans and to involve them in shaping the Union’s future.
Youth in Action is a programme for all! It promotes mobility within and beyond the EU borders, non-formal learning and intercultural dialogue, and encourages the inclusion of all young people, regardless of their educational, social and cultural background.
Youth in Action is the successor of the YOUTH Programme (2000-2006). Building on the experience of the previous programmes for youth, Youth in Action is the result of a large consultation with the different stakeholders in the youth field and aims to respond to the evolutions and needs of young people at European level.
With a total budget of 885 million euros for seven years (2007-2013), the Programme supports a large variety of activities for young people and youth workers through five Actions.
There are many sectors where if u have d good will to participate. U can take part in d general activism, but also help and work with sectors like:children, civil society, culture & sports, education, emergency relief etc. May issues are waiting for u to become aware and join d new era of (r)evolution. Advocacy, corporate volunteering, infrastructure, management, policy, research, senior volunteers, vacation volunteering, volunteering for development, young volunteers an so ON!
