Social Inclusion in Action


Social Inclusion in Action” is a project run by CVS Bulgaria in partnership with 15 organization from 13 countries – Greece, Spain, Italy, Cyprus, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia, Turkey, Czech Republic and Bulgaria. The project foresees two training course for youth workers involved in the activities of our partners.

The project “Social Inclusion in Action” aims to build the capacity of partner organizations for quality work with young people with fewer opportunities, and to increase the quality of implemented youth projects, making them more accessible to young people with fewer opportunities and at the same time increase the involvement of such participants.

We believe that through such facilitation of social inclusion we will support organizations in their regular work and activities involving more prepared and trained youth workers and facilitators, young people with fewer opportunities will be actively involved themselves (independently and in extended groups with other young people), as well as there will be more young people and youth workers with the necessary competencies to adequately support and positively evaluate diversity.

With the achievement of the set aims, we plan to meet the specific needs of the partners, which are related to the difficulties of lack of specific knowledge, skills and experience in direct work and inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities in the activities of the organizations. What we lack as trainers and youth workers are short and clearly worded tips and simple rules that can be applied in practice without a person having prior experience of working with a specific target group, but through which inclusion can be made easy and successful.

The project has a duration of 24 months (from 1st May 2020 till 30th April 2022) and consists of two project activities:

  •  “Social Inclusion in Action: the beauty of cultural diversity” training that willl be held from 19 to 26 August 2021 in Emen and will bring together a total of 34 participants who will work on the inclusion of young people with cultural differences (immigrants, refugees, or descendants of immigrant or refugee families; representatives of national or ethnic minorities; people experiencing difficulties with their language adaptation or cultural integration)
  • “Social Inclusion in Action: all special, all equal” training that will bring together a total of 34 participants who will focus on the inclusion of young people with physical disabilities (motor, visual and mental), dates and place are to be confirmed.
