PROJECT DESCRIPTION

“Learners. Activists. Doers. Superheroes.” is an ESC project which has as an objective providing learning opportunities in an institution that works tirelessly to respond to the needs of the local community. The service lasts for 12 months and youngsters from the EU can apply. These youngsters will have a chance to actively participate in resolving community problems and in building local community stronger and more inclusive, by volunteering in Social Parochial Centre Vera Cruz, based in Aveiro, Portugal. On their way to becoming “community super-heroes”, they will be involved in different sectors (work with children, elderly people, immigrants…), according to their interests, learning needs, and needs of the receiving institution. Weekly, they will be active 35 hours, including their Portuguese classes. Each week they will have 2 consecutive free days. For each month of their service, they have 2.5 free days.
