As part of the ForHeritage project, IRMO has teamed up with the Interreg Volunteer Youth (IVY), which means that a volunteer will be joining the project. IVY is an initiative led by the European Solidarity Corps, and their mission is to include young people between the ages of 18 and 30 in transnational, interregional and cross-border projects. IVY has been founded in 2017 and is managed by the Association of European Border Regions (AEBR). The purpose of a volunteer in an Interreg project is to support different processes and activities, report on them, and actively promote cooperation and similar values in the local community and beyond. IVY is all about cultivating civic engagement, European belonging and collaboration across bordering countries. While volunteering at the host organisation, volunteers gain a rich experience which includes knowledge and skills specific to the topic of the project, as well as personal growth and development which can be applied in the future. As for the host organisation, any Interreg Programme, National authority, and Project beneficiary from the EU, EEA, IPA-CBC, or ENI-CBC can take on the role. IRMO is proud to be able to offer such an opportunity to young professionals.
