Short-term International Volunteering
PROYDE understands as International Short-Term Volunteering the one that takes place for a period of between 1 and 3 months, generally in the European summer. It is carried out by groups that coexist and are formed before leaving for the place of action, are received by a Host Community and are integrated into a Program or Development Project already underway of which they are part for a few weeks.
Small People - International Youth Volunteering 1
The Short-Term Youth International Volunteer Program (Small People - International Youth Volunteer 2 ) is an opportunity to experience first-hand the reality of injustice in impoverished countries, assuming an important step in personal commitment to a better world.
This possibility is not a final experience, but part of a process of personal and, if possible, community growth and commitment.
Objectives of the Small People Program - International Youth Volunteering
Facilitate a community experience (in a group) that contributes to personal discernment, to the construction of critical thinking (it matters beforehand) and to the adoption of a solidary commitment, because it is not offered as a finalist experience (it matters later).
Sensitize before the reality North - South, constituting a formative experience for agents of sensitization.
Provide an intercultural exchange and encounter that favors solidarity bridges North - South, in a context of Lasallian fraternity.
Requirements for the participants
The Small People - International Youth Volunteer Program is aimed at young people between 16 and 21 years old with personal concerns and preferably with a commitment prior to the start of the process, in social movements and international solidarity, especially in the PROYDE Delegations. The young people will participate in the final process of the Program (stay in a community in the South) preferably with 18 years of age. Those who do it before, must have the consent of their parents, guardians or legal representatives. 3
Participants will have to meet a minimum of maturity, sensitivity and responsibility, committing to participate in the entire process of prior training.
The ability to work in groups will also be taken into account in the selection process.
Due to its mission, PROYDE offers this experience with a privileged character to young people from the Lasallian environment or who have links to La Salle.
Conditions in which you participate in the program
The experience will be developed through participation in the work of a Community in a Southern country, designated by PROYDE.
The tasks to be performed will be according to the profile of the participants and agreed upon with the Host Community before the experience.
The experience will be lived in a group of between four to twelve participants, who will always be accompanied by at least two people with experience in cooperation projects.
The Local and / or Territorial Delegations will ensure for each experience, some Responsible that will accompany the group of young people, before, during and after the experience. These Responsible will have previous experience of participation in International Volunteering.
The Short-Term Youth International Volunteer Projects (Small People - International Youth Volunteering), must, by their very nature, incorporate and involve at all times the three groups necessary for its realization: the young people, the fathers and mothers and the adult chaperones (specifically the teachers). This requires PROYDE to carry out information, training and participation actions, either jointly or separately with the three groups.
In PROYDE there is a follow-up group of the Program, made up of the Director, the Volunteer Responsible of each Territorial Delegation and by other persons with experience in International Volunteering appointed by PROYDE.

Primer Encuentro de Voluntariado de ONG Lasalianas de Desarrollo y Obras Socioeducativas La Salle
Más de cincuenta personas voluntarias de las ONG Lasalianas de Desarrollo y de las Obras Socioeducativas lasalianas del Distrito ARLEP participaron el sábado 18 de noviembre en Madrid en el primer encuentro de voluntariado.
El principal objetivo de este evento fue el de conocer la realidad del voluntariado en los sectores, por lo que hubo muchos momentos en los que las personas participantes pudieron compartir sus experiencias, motivaciones, sueños y esperanzas, así como la vida de las instituciones en las que realizan su labor voluntaria.
También hubo tiempo para reflexionar sobre la acogida, el acompañamiento, la formación y la evaluación que las organizaciones ofrecen al voluntariado. Se señalaron fortalezas, debilidades y sobre todo se realizaron propuestas de mejora para el futuro.
