YOUTHMASS - short term EVS in Lorca
Friday, July 1st, 10am to Sunday, July 31st, 9pm
Av de las Fuerzas Armadas
Lorca, Región de Murcia
The Youthmass project starts from an idea of Cazalla Intercultural, as an attempt to respond to some challenges and demands of young people of Lorca during the summer months. The risk of social exclusion, lack of real opportunities to participate in any leisure activity in summer is a reality for those who cannot leave the city during the holidays, and this happens to a growing number of young people, especially immigrants and Roma communities. Missing meeting places, learning activities and the exchange of ideas, which are the basis of the reasons that led the local NGO to fight for these opportunities and writing this project. And to do it together with European volunteers is the best way to go for learning, experience, impact, peer learning.
The main objectives are to develop competences and basic skills (communication, self-esteem, express their own needs, intercultural learning, ...) of European volunteers and young people from Lorca, both groups with fewer opportunities; learn to use ICT (video, computer programs, ..); improve communication in foreign languages (English and Spanish); motivate them to be active citizens and to take initiative; acquire new knowledge and develop organizational skills, creativity and working with youth groups skills. All of this through activities as Street Art, music, dance, video-making etc., youth workshops and interactive talks on EVS and Erasmus + in Lorca. We also think of the smaller ones from the poorest Hood of Lorca, with which volunteers would work two mornings per week, doing fun and educational activities at the same time. The activities are based on principles of non-formal education, through which volunteers learn not only new knowledge but also skills and attitudes and to question where the main focus will be on peer learning.
WHOM WE ARE LOOKING FOR?
If you are:
- flexible and with the sense of initiative
- doing some artistic stuff by yourself - interested in the different forms of art – theater, music, dance, video, visual arts etc.
- like to work with young people
- can work in the group
- are able to share the room for one month and live in somehow community - we don´t have any created community, but since volunteers share rooms and cook together the feeling of community will definately be created.

We will prioritize those who have no chance to actively participate in any kind of learning mobility or are discouraged by their economic, social, geographical location, etc. We will seek for gender balance.
