Students Diaries Platform
“Volunteers from School” Students Diaries Platform, offers students the opportunity to develop their sense of active citizenship, ethics, and critical thinking by engaging with their local volunteering scene, develop their digital skills in creating innovative audio-visual content such as podcasts, videos and written content and map their volunteering experience to engage and inspire others. The platform is a dissemination tool, a meeting point, and a testimonial of the intrinsic benefits of community service and an inspiration for other schools, teachers, and students to follow their example.

It educates teachers on how to motivate their students’ participation in democratic life, social and civic engagement, embrace and practice EU values through volunteering.
School exchange for students
Two school exchanges for students will take place in “Volunteers from School”. The first one is for students to learn how to create a digital diary, and building digital, communication and project management skills, as well as creating a spirit of shared values on how to take responsibility to contribute to society’s improvement by personal involvement. The second exchange has the aim of sharing, among students at different schools, the experiences, emotions, and lessons learned during their involvement as VoterS.
These exchanges will intensify the circular relationship between learning and service and demonstrate how students that experienced and lead civic engagement actions, have internalized this active exercise of citizenship while acquiring new knowledge and skills.
