The words printed here are concepts. You must go through the experiences.
Please take your time and watch this movie (5:00 minutes long- sharp!), you’ll hear several ideas about the experience of volunteering and teenagers opinion on our project. That might also motivate you to take a step forward and get involved into activities of this kind, if you haven’t yet, or simply to see that there are other people that care, if you are already an active volunteer.

If you meet a person that spends his free time helping other people,doing it with pleasure and without receiving any money, you should know that he is a volunteer. A volunteer gives to persons who need his help, friendship and time, not because he MUST but because he WANTS to do this.
We think that teenagers can certainly change this world. We are young. We have an open-minded attitude in front of all things or persons that seem to not fit the norm.We have the courage to get involved. To prove you that this is true, we’ll tell you our story.

We usually meet to speak about our blog on Mondays. A month ago, all the posts we had written, all the meetings we had been at, all the new people that we had met, made us think that we really got involved in this project.So, we decided to do something more.

Preparing for this, we made a list with some titles and we went to watch them, together (The Team). And this was fantastic.
After we decided in regard to the film, a lot of problems appeared. The main idea was that it was almost impossible to accomplish our plan. This was a disappointment for us, but we thought about an alternative.What about posting the film we think you must watch? Maybe our first choice is a little daring but we were really fascinated by this one:
A Beautiful Mind
When you choose to have a surgical abortion or not you have to know that in that moment you have in your hands two lives: yours and your child’s life. It’s a great responsibility and probably the most difficult decision you have to make. There isn’t a good choice or a bad one. Whatever your decision is you lose something. But how do you know to choose less pain?

On the 30th of January, we went to a special event, organized by Special Olympics. There, we participated as volunteers and were lucky to meet some very special people who dedicate their lives to children with disabilities.
