Community Seniors Involved International
We believe that the topic of seniors’ inclusion in the society is overlooked in the work of NGOs, although those organizations have (or can get) a set of skills which is perfectly suitable to work not only with youngsters but also with seniors.
Or, ideally, with both groups together.
Our key activities:
Research & methodology
Our research will identify existing best seniors’ inclusion practices in each of the countries, most acute social problems related to the seniors’ exclusion, available tools and methodologies for teaching youth workers about the involvement of seniors, ideas on how to best engage seniors and youth. Afterward, a pilot training methodology for NGOs will teach their youth workers how to involve seniors in common activities with youth.
Run a pilot that would test the methodology through events in partner countries. The pilot will include study 3 youth worker mobilities in partner countries & the Young Spirit festival in Lithuania.
This program is for youth workers to better understand the local social problems and seniors’ inclusion capabilities in each of the countries (and wider regions). During the program, a youth worker spends 3 weeks in each of the partner’s countries gathering ground data on the topic. And in the end, 1 youth worker from each partner country will help to implement the festival in Lithuania.
To share the ideas of the project with the public across the project countries (News, updates, educational material (videos, tutorials, quizzes, learning games), etc.) in English / Russian / Indonesian.
