Serve the City has the main objective of promoting solidarity, civic and social participation, social inclusion and cooperation through quality voluntary initiatives accessible to all young people and organisations contributing to social cohesion, solidarity, democracy and European citizenship. The objective of social inclusion also focuses on the need to respond to social problems and to reinforce the potential of the community. Together, the association seeks to empower young people through the development of transversal skills and learning, namely, at a personal, educational, social and civic, cultural and professional level, recognizing the importance of each in the social transformation and contribution to a society highly inclusive, supportive, cohesive and cooperative. Opportunities to participate in volunteer activities are targeted at those who wish to take a proactive role in change, including young people with fewer opportunities. So we are sure that we can actively contribute to the difference. Aware of the importance of the impacts on the construction of a society based on the principles of European cooperation, our vision is to strengthen the competences of all young people, ensuring support at all times, in order to promote a new path for the transformation of social reality.
