Youth Winds, is a way of communication between the youth of the rural municipality of San Andrés y Sauces in La Palma, to get closer to Europe and for young European volunteers to live together in an island of the outermost region of the Canary Islands.
The project was born from the demand of the local youth group to have more participation and dynamization activities, which want to have the same opportunities for learning, leisure and culture as any city in Europe. Therefore, the Youth Information Point has launched this initiative of volunteering with the aim of expanding the cultural, leisure and participatory options among local youth, as well as publicize the opportunities offered by Europe in the fields of non-formal education.
With Youth Winds project we want to promote the values of European citizenship in the rural community, especially the tolerance towards diversity, inclusion and active citizenship, through activities of youth work that invite the participation not only of the young people of the municipality, but also the rest of the community, by the side activities with the Eldery Center, and the Nursery School.
As a result, we hope to achieve, on the one hand, an enriching mutual learning experience, both for the young volunteers, as well as for the local youth who will participate in the workshops and activities. On the other hand, we want to improve the belonging feeling to Europe among local youth and increase participation in other European educational and youth programs. Finally, we expect an improvement in the active participation of young people in the local community, with more activities promoted by the young people themselves.
