Dear Servas Friends
The new Youth and Families Committee is organizing a lot of activities around the world, many of them to celebrate our 70th anniversary. Some of these activities are the following:
· Volunteering experience in the Intercultural Karnival in Sweden from May 20 to May 28
· Course of volunteering from July 2 to July 5 in Turkey
· Peace School from July 6 to 14 in Turkey and Youth school of cinema from July 17 to 21 in Turkey
· International Youth and families summer camp in Italy from August 25 to August 31
· International Youth environmental working camp in Spain from September 2 to September 8
There are more information of these activities in the attached documents. Please help us to spread these information among your country members resending this email. Other countries are preparing new events that can be added and supported soon in the next weeks we will send more information about them.
We take this opportunity to thank all the young volunteers who are collecting the email addresses of young members and families from their own countries. It is very important for our committee to have the email addresses to send the information right to them, so we will be glad if the national secretaries ( or any people from the board) can help us sending us the list of:
1. youngsters (18-30 years old)
2. minors (14-16 years old)
3. families with children
Name, age and email address are to be given. As a matter of fact, it is by this information that we can send the communications easily.
Also our committee invite all the countries to promote Servas among the young people. One of the easy promotion is to take care of our young members, so many countries are starting a Young and Families action Plan. We send to you a document with ideas to start, and also a power point if you can do a presentation of this plan in your own assembly. One of these ideas is to help our youngsters to attend an international Servas event, so many countries are given small grants to the young people to support them in this particural events.
For any question or doubt you can write to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Thank you very much for your collaboration to advertise these events!!!
