The project ACTION aims to improve young people’s entry into the labour market through empowering their key competences and skills with regard to their contribution to the society. Volunteers are promoting the democratic participation, active citizenship, intercultural dialogue, social inclusion and solidarity, in particular by implementation of activities on the local level. Four volunteers are participating on this project, one from Italy, Czech Republic, Germany and Macedonia. Their service takes place from the beginning of September 2016 until the end of July 2017. The volunteers are promoting the EVS and Erasmus+ program among Croatian youth, are promoting multilingualism, writing projects activities, giving free foreign language lectures, updating social media and LDA website, organising intercultural events for the local. They also have a chance to cooperate with local institutions and organizations such as the Municipality in Novigrad or Buje, Italian and Croatian schools or Italian communities.
