The Youth Center of Nea Epidavros  

In the beginning of May 2015 we established our youth center in collaboration with the Municipality of Epidavros and with the catalytic contribution of our EVS Volunteers. The idea was that this place was going to host the cultural inquietude of the youngsters of the village and at the same time attract the attention of the youngsters of the surrounding villages and in this way hold the young people in their hometown and potentially lower the average age of the villagers. We believe that the creation of a strong Youth Community will facilitate the social inclusion of young migrants and will spread seeds of forbearance throughout the whole community.  Furthermore, we aim to improve the linguistic skills of the youngsters through their regular contact with the European volunteers as well as keep them up to date concerning their mobility opportunities. We are confident that all of the above will promote the youth mobility and entrepreneurship and potentially create employment opportunities in a local, or even in a European level. Our objective when speaking about the project in terms of the Village of Nea Epidavros is to introduce a small, agricultural place to other cultures, thereby fighting xenophobia and creating a greater feeling of a common European heritage (or even human heritage).
