The aim of the project “Hubs of European Solidarity” is to spread good examples and populate our youth centers and activity houses with good-quality free time activities with the help of the volunteers. We believe that this will inspire young visitors to learn new things, step out of their comfort zone and make their own activities in a non-formal way, thus exercising their right to leisure, boosting their health, and strengthening their position in society. Moreover, meeting volunteers from different countries can awaken an interest in mobility opportunities in Europe, which is part of our strategy as a local Eurodesk office.
