In this area live many people with fewer opportunities, unemployed, emigrants and youngsters from families with many children.

The European volunteers, under the guidance and help of TES’s people, will work together with our youngsters, and they will help them to get in touch with the European Dimension and New Technologies and to inform them about how to search for new possibilities in the field of Education, Employment, Entertainment, etc.
They will help our people to inform the young Greek people, especially the people with less opportunities (we have many emigrants, unemployed and families with many children), about all the actions of the “Youth” Program. The volunteers will help the young people in Piraeus city to open new horizons. It is really important for the youngsters who live in a place like Piraeus (The biggest port in Greece), to have information about the opportunities they have, to open discussions about this and help them.
The Young Voluntary workers undertake to participate voluntarily in an active citizen and informative experience with the aim of acquiring social, intercultural and personal skills, enabling them to lay the foundation for their own future and at the same contribute to the well being of the community.
