Educating the adults of the future
The project arises from the need, in many places, for a motivating school environment. In addition to this, if the vast majority of students come from disadvantaged groups, the result is that they lose interest in continuing their schooling and do not achieve higher level education. Besides the fact that they often do not have the means or the opportunities to do so.
The main motivation is to prepare the participants for adulthood, to make them think about the world and the conditions in which they will live and to help with the problems of Europe and the whole world and to try to achieve a more sustainable future for all.
To do so, the project enables all participants to explore, understand, describe and compare lifestyles across Europe, raise awareness, common concerns…, and thus help where it is most needed.
The overall objective of the project is to mitigate academic underachievement and student dropout among disadvantaged people. Collaterally aiming to:
Educating in the spirit of respect, human rights, fundamental freedoms, dignity, tolerance and free exchange of ideas.
Cultivate sensitivity to human issues, civic moral values, nature and the environment.
To broaden knowledge of European countries, their development, problems, culture and history.
The project involves two groups of participants: students and teachers. The main aim is to provide students with the necessary skills to be better adults in tomorrow’s society with the help of teachers. The project foresees the implementation of 5 presential activities in which they will take part and in which soft skills training will be carried out.
The objectives of Be Volunteer For Hope will be achieved through:
Innovative extracurricular activities involving students, their families, authorities, the community….;
Collaborations between national and international schools;
Participating in international trips;
Develop critical thinking skills;
Collaborating in multicultural teams;
Use of new technologies;
