”I’m with you!” is an ESC 8-month volunteering project which aims to prevent the phenomenon of school dropout among children from Marasesti, Haret, Ciuslea, Garoafa communities through non-formal education activities. The project involves 8 volunteers from different countries who are going to be involved in non-formal activities in kindergartens. All activities will be achieved through an interactive approach. The focus of the project is the direct participation of children and parents in the prevention of early school leaving, creating a warm and attractive school climate. Through the non-formal education methods used in this project, we want to promote social inclusion and equal opportunities, to contribute to the European cooperation in the youth field and to awareness of its positive impact through the active involvement of European volunteers, preschool children, teachers and parents as agents of prevention.
