Thousands of young people invest their time in associations in Europe. Some of them come in our association, and we send others all over the Europe. The European Union is the main supporter of this kind of project to promote, among other things, active European citizenship. The volunteers work in innovation, social inclusion and solidarity fields, as a non-formal learning. They also learn others languages, meet new friends, this is one of the best experience in their life!
In 2010 we invited those volunteers to tell us their stories, in any way they wish : article, poem, video, photo, song or whatever, in the form of contest with prizes. Next we published the first Scriptamanent book!
It's a way to explain what is a volunteer experience to young people who consider a similar experience, but also to give associations a tool for a deeper reflection. Written in different languages, the Scriptamanent book promote multilingualism, cultural diversity, the sense of initiative and entrepreneurship. It also contributes to the quality of youth support systems in Europe.
We plan to complete the printing of the books by the 1st of March 2016. For this we need the €3,000 by the 8th of January 2016: this money will be used to print 200 copies and pay the shipping costs.
Link is a cultural association established in 2003 that promotes non formal education, active citizenship, participation. We work on regional level for young people and citizens for european themes such as fighting against racism or promotion of diversity. We manage activities with school, institutions and others organizations. Differents volunteers work for us, improving their knowledge of others cultures. We organize exchanges and international training courses. In 2012 Link has been recognized by the european commision as a body active at Europen level in the youth fiel.
We really want to see this project succeed, and we will do it in one way or another ;)
