A3S Active Sports Solidarity Spirit
Acknowledging the increased necessity and demand at a European level to support the health and well-being of young people, which is one of the current societal challenges of the European society, as well as providing opportunities to young people with fewer opportunities to engage in solidarity activities with social impact, Active Zone Outdoor as a holder of the European Solidarity Corps Quality Label provides volunteering opportunities to young people from Cyprus and abroad for the period between 2021 and 2027 to work in a promising youth and outdoor oriented organization.
To promote sports and outdoor activities for all with emphasis on youth with fewer opportunities as a vehicle to enhance well-being, mental and physical health of youth as well as promote social inclusion and gender equality;
To highlight the connectedness between sports and outdoor activities with the natural environment and thus underline the urgency of environmental protection by pinpointing the significance of the environment in the healthy living of human beings;
To cultivate and improve the skills of youth at a personal and professional level by being involved in the design and implementation of sports and outdoor solidarity activities and thus enhancing their employability and transition into the labor market;
The project aspires the participation of young volunteers aged between 18 and 30 years old who are motivated by the goals of the organization with regards to outdoor activities, protection of the environment and social inclusion of youth and be capable of responding to the particular objectives and challenges of the project.
