My name is Matteo
I am 22 years old, this is my first experience of exchange with people from 7 different countries: Greece-Bulgaria-Spain-Turkey-Macedonia-Romania-Italy.
Erasmus allows me to say that the more this initiative is extended, the more people have offered the opportunity to take part in it through funding, the more benefits offered by this experience will create a widespread network of dissemination of knowledge and open-mindedness that generate widespread well-being for the whole society
this project allows:

– increase the quality of volunteering in their communities
encourage young people to provide feedback on volunteering in their communities and improve the quality of volunteering
services provided by participating organizations;
– increase knowledge on Erasmus + and CES,
and support the development of new projects.
– raise awareness of the importance of volunteering by sharing stories / insights about YES through social media
media (Instagram / Facebook / Youtube);
