In order to continue the development of an area of deep integration and moving towards the free circulation of goods, services, capital and people in the context of the Pacific Alliance (AP), the governments of Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru, open the third call for the Youth Volunteer Project. In this way, we seek to give continuity to the efforts to promote experiential exchange through activities that build solidarity behavior among young people, which positively impact society, bearing in mind that youth is a key player in the region.
In this stage of their life, young people are socially formed as citizens, and subjects with rights and duties, who begin to worry about fulfilling a role in society, develop their civic and moral conscience, and make decisions that will affect their own future and to play an important role in society. The active and effective participation in this volunteer experience manages to impact, not only in their citizenship formation, reinforcing their knowledge and labor and social skills, but also in their communities and local populations. A society that supports and encourages the different expressions of volunteering is a society that promotes the welfare of all its citizens.
This volunteer project is aimed at young people between 18 and 30 years old, nationals of the member countries of the Pacific Alliance and who have residence in their country of origin at the time of applying. The period of execution of the voluntary action for each call will have a minimum duration of two weeks and a maximum of four weeks (one month). The host country will define the subject in which the volunteers from the country of origin will participate, which can be consulted in the specific call of each country.
