EU Aid Volunteers

EU Aid Volunteers brings together volunteers and organisations from different countries, providing practical support to humanitarian aid projects and contributing to strengthening the local capacity and resilience of disaster-affected communities.

The EU Aid Volunteers programme offers:
  • Opportunities for European citizens to become EU Aid Volunteers in humanitarian projects
    worldwide, showing solidarity with those who most need it,

  • Professional support by trained and well-prepared volunteers to communities
    affected by disaster,

  • Capacity building for local staff and volunteers of organisations in countries hit by disasters,
  • Technical assistance for organisations based in Europe to strengthen their capacity to participate in the EU Aid Volunteers initiative.

The EU Aid Volunteers networking platform, soon to be launched, supports partnerships and collaboration between projects, it houses the online volunteering activities and it allows EU Aid Volunteers to share their stories from the field.

Funding opportunities with the EU Aid Volunteers initiative are managed by the Commission's Education, Audio-visual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).

Organisations can consult the Calls: EU Aid Volunteers page for more information on the rules and procedures for participating organisations and links to further information.

Please send us you contributions at contact@mediactiveyouth.net

We welcome a variety of forms: articles, photos, video content, caricatures... When sending us an article, consider including a suitable photo to go with it, thus making your contribution more visually appealing.

All contributions should be dedicated to the issues of youth
and youth policy.

The right to publish in the magazine belongs to everyone!

MAKE A STAND – LET’S BUILD OUR FUTURE TOGETHER!

M(A)Y publishes a variety of media contents – texts, caricatures, photos, video-clips – created by young people, youth workers, experts, and all others that wish and have something to say about youth policy.

Geographically, M(A)Y e-Magazine is primarily targeting European countries, but it also publishes important news and initiatives in the field of youth policy worldwide.

The e-Magazine gives special attention to youth media activism, wishing to present the examples of best practices of using different media for youth activism.

Besides authored articles, M(A)Y also gathers together relevant articles from other web-sites. M(A)Ye-Magazine is thus a virtual space where visitors are able to get information about the international situation and problems of youth policy, and the place where young authors are able to write articles and other content intended for improving the youth policy internationally. In this respect, it has vital importance for the intraregional and transregional association, understanding, coming together, promoting dialogue and cooperation.
This portal has been created as part of the international MEDIActive Youth project implemented within the Erasmus + Programme. The aims of the project are:
Increasing the capacity of youth organisations/workers in the field of media literacy and media activism as well as fostering their active participation in society
Fostering intraregional and transregional cooperation between 11 youth NGOs from 10 countries from Western Balkans, Western Europe and North Europe regions
Strengthening media promotion of youth policy and democratic values in partner countries on transregional and European level.
