Sant Martí Emprén 2023

SantMartí Emprèn 2023 – Associations Edition

It is an online space where young people and interested individuals can start their association idea and participate in the Erasmus+ programs and the European Solidarity Corps. An innovative program with online activities and workshops to develop an association.

Following the methodology of “learning by doing,” which combines the use of online resources and the exchange of experiences.

With the support of the Youth BCN association team, you can discover the fundamentals of associations, the European programs Erasmus+, ESC (European Solidarity Corps), and much more!

Project fully funded by the European Solidarity Corps program of the European Union.

Our last edition of 2023 yielded the following results:

200 young people registered to participate, from which we selected 40 participants. Upon completing the training, the young people generated 32 proposals for new associations.

Of these, at least 4 associations and 10 new Erasmus+ and ESC projects emerged from this program.

The maximum estimated potential for direct and indirect social impact from these 4 associations and 10 new projects was around 325,000 individuals, with over 70% being other young people.

Youth Sparks

Youth Sparks was a project organized by Youth BCN and funded by the European Solidarity Corps of the European Union. The project included a long-term volunteering stay in Barcelona for 12 months. Youth Sparks was born from the need analysis done by Youth BCN in the district of Sant Martí, Barcelona, where volunteering opportunities are hard to find, yet there is a high interest in volunteering and a high demand for volunteers to develop local initiatives.

The volunteers participated in:

  • Communication-related activities
  • English Conversation Club
  • Youth BCN virtual magazine
  • EU-funded programs for project management
  • Online activities for young people
  • Charity second-hand shop
  • Local events for young people
  • Extracurricular activities for young people
