Project Activity Details

United Societies of Balkans (U.S.B.) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Thessaloniki, Greece, working in the field of youth mobility, participation and promoting youth awareness of social issues. It was founded in 2008 by the initiative of a group of active young people who wanted to address the social issues which affect the youngsters in the Balkans and Eastern Europe.

The goal of the organisation is the promotion of youth mobility, youth involvement and participation, voluntarism and human rights. We make it through:
• Promoting the values of non-formal learning, voluntarism, active citizenship and democracy for the creation of a better future for the

European youth;
• Involving minorities and immigrants into youth activities;
• Building healthy cooperation bridges between countries in the area of the Balkans and Eastern Europe with the rest of Europe;
• Using New Media and Citizens’ Journalism methodologies to encourage youth expression, to raise awareness of Human Rights and to promote intercultural dialogue;
• Utilizing arts as a tool for the cultivation and expression of youth;
• Breaking down prejudices and stereotypes among the European countries and amongst youth.
In order to make more effective all our actions, USB is also a member of several networks, such as Anna Lindh Foundation, Thess Diktio, Youth for Exchange and Understanding.

Volunteers Task:
The activities in which the volunteer will be involved are:
• Organisation and development of an e -radio (live or podcast).
• Organisation and development of a web- tv. Documentaries emphasized on social issues and cultural activities in Thessaloniki are highly recommended.
• Organisation and development of "Balkan Beats", an e-journal focused on youth and human rights.

The organisation can ask them to work more hours or during the weekends if needed, for maximum of 35 hours per week Every Monday there is a meeting with the Coordinator to check the working plan of the previous week and schedule the working plan for the next week. Individual or group meetings will be organised with the Mentor to talk about their personal project and development.
