ACTA Romania Welcomed 2 ESC Volunteers

As part of TAS project ACTA Center started preparatory work in May 2021, together with our partners Co.P.E. and Vocal Europe, for the recruitment process of volunteers. ACTA prepared an invitation for the open call on the European Solidarity Corps platform, as well as on social media (Facebook, Twitter) and during local events in order for interested participants to apply.

After a first screening, the most suitable candidates for experience and motivation have been contacted. Applicants were informed about the planned project activities and they were also asked about personal interests and aspirations in order to include fine-tuned activities depending on their personal profile. Two volunteers were selected for each country, Belgium, Italy, Romania, received a specific training aimed at getting to know the host organizations and its various sectors of intervention as well as focused on the TAS project and the various planned activities. Starting from July until the end of August 2021 the volunteers were involved in organization’s meetings and activities, they prepared activities and materials within the TAS Labs project.

During the whole volunteering period, volunteers were assigned to a responsible peer educator in order to receive necessary guidance and support.
