ACT

"ACT" project is a KA3 project which aims to create innovative citizen pathways for young people with fewer opportunities, by providing them with the opportunity to realise a volunteering project with migrants or refugees in Greece or Italy. The project will involve 54 youngsters from the deprived neighborhoods of Roubaix, Liverpool and Brussels and from Greece and Italy in volunteering projects supporting vulnerable migrants.

The objectives are to:

- Develop volunteering projects to promote the inclusion and integration of unemployed young people at risk of exclusion or victims of discriminations and potential radicalisation

- Allow young people to get involved with newly arrived migrants in order to develop values of citizenship, solidarity and tolerance 

- Disseminate the good practices of the project and success stories of these young people and to make their experience known in their sending communities, and especially in the deprived neighborhoods they come from.

The objective is to attract other young people towards volunteering projects and to fight against the risks of isolation and violent radicalization.

The project will cover:

- Flights - Insurance - Food - Accommodation - Local Transport - Pocket Money

Young people will be also trained before and on arrival in:                           - Intercultural Communication - Fundamental Rights of migrants - Reception and integration of migrants in Greece/Italy - Security, health and safety
