Tinemobilul – the first and the only Mobile Youth Centre in Romania – is waiting for a team of 6 volunteers to embark on a journey to bring youthwork closer to young people living in far and isolated communities, in Prahova county, Romania. It is a 10 months volunteering service in which 6 volunteers will get ready to bring nonformal learning and personal development opportunities to youngsters that cannot reach our youth centres due to high distances, lack of means of transport or economical obstacles. This project takes the experience with Tinemobilul one step further and builds on previous experiences in which the mobile youth centre went already around in the area, brought games, competitions, workshops, cinema nights to youngsters and children that did not even dream that they could do something like this, close to their homes. After a period of training, the volunteers will plan and implement activities, by working in teams 3 people and going in the area around.
