The publication “Europe for All – Rethinking International Volunteering” presents the results of the of the Strategic Partnership “Europe for All – an initiative for the integration of young people with fewer opportunities into the EVS”, which the Jugendakademie Walberberg from Germany together with its international partners, Achieve More from Scotland, Porta Nuova Europa from Italy and Association Inspiration from Bulgaria has been pursuing since 2018.
It is divided into three parts. The first part relates the project in its key features to the requirement of the European Voluntary Service (EVS)/European Solidarity Corps (ESC) funding system and the format of Strategic Partnerships. It outlines the tension between funding requirements and hands-on experience from the various voluntary service formats for young people with fewer opportunities. The second part describes the scientific accompaniment of the project – in it’s approach, its research assumptions and its results. In the third part, the authors mainly analyse the content-related elements of the project and present important ideas to target integration of young people with fewer opportunities in the various voluntary service and peer formats. And finally, it presents a series of selected examples of good practice.
