„Inside Ride” project will take place in Brasov, between 01.08.2014 and 31.11.2015.

During 11 month in this period, 4 international volunteers coming from the Netherlands, Latvia and Germany will work together with the organization members, local volunteers and local youth workers to inspire an „inside” journey: in the local communities, and inside themselves, for self-development and self-awareness.

The activities from the project will be centered around promoting the involvement of local young people in different activities (cultural activities, outdoor activities, volunteering, campaigns etc), promoting alternative leisure activities in the nature (e.g. using adventure education methods), implementing environmental friendly activities (delivering information about the local natural and cultural richness, workshops on ecological topics etc.) and developing the knowledge and skills of local young people in order to be able and enjoy doing and/or organizing such activities besides school (through language cafes, graphic or computer workshops, team-games etc.)

Moreover, the project aims at developing a proper environment for the volunteers involved to learn and discover new things about themselves and about different cultures, and to integrate this elements in an individualized self-development process.
