" Since long time ago I have been interested to train myself to become a profesional of social change. I'm convinced that the opportunity to become a Millennium Fellow will allow me to increase my knowledge about how can I contribute better to build foundations for a much better future.
Millennium Fellowship Project: Xévi
Our project has the purpose to work with the residents of the community so we can help them to develop abilities that allow them to take positive and specific actions in pro the wellness of the community.
The main initiative is about undertaking a Communitarian Development Diploma of 3 month long, in which we see topics such as:
1. Personal Development.
2. Effective Communication.
3. Tools for communitarian participation.
4. Projects Development.
At the end of the Diploma we will mentor the actions that the adults of the community have decided so we can ensure that these actions can have a real impact in the community.
