Active international weekend in Pancharevo under the YASV project
On 22.09.2017 a picnic was held in Pancharevo, where young people from Bulgaria and South Korea took part, sharing their time with positive emotions. The event was organized by Yordanka Hristova, one of the young ambassadors of sporting development, and the participants shared delicious food that they had brought and then took part in entertaining and educational sports activities. They were divided into two teams and competed among themselves, and finally there were awards for the winners.

Young Ambassadors of Sport Volunteering project is a joint partnership between four countries and aims to promote volunteering in sport, equal opportunities and awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle by increasing participation in sport for all. The project provides 3 transnational meetings to present the results achieved at each stage and to provide a quality monitoring process. During international training, a team of qualified trainers will help prepare ambassadors for the organization and promotion of sporting events, motivation for sport and volunteer activities of their peers, and will structure the preparation of events to be held during the European Week of sport - September 2017.

The main work phases, dedicated to local actions, are related to the promotion of sport culture and raising awareness about the importance of being physically active, and the promotion of volunteering, its values and its benefits for society. Also the project plans ongoing processes of M&E, as well as a dissemination phase, both of them on local and international level. In addition, as final output the project will create an online platform which will gather all tangible results, best practices shared and indications for fellow organizations and stakeholders to follow the same path towards the promotion of sport culture and volunteering in sports as ways of promoting equal opportunities and combating social exclusion.

Project is co-funded by “Erasmus+” Programme of European Commission – Small Collaborative Partnerships and will be implemented in 24 months. Partner countries: Italy, Bulgaria, Poland and Denmark.
