Alongside our core activities we design and implement sub-projects. These often support and enhance our core activities, and are commonly delivered in partnership with other local organisations. They are usually funded by a specific donor for a finite period of time. Below is a list of past and current projects of this nature.

Velos Youth is excited to announce its partnership with Communia, an Italian youth association, for the implementation of the “We Are Part” project. This project, which is part of the Erasmus+ KA210 programme for small-scale partnerships focused on youth, seeks to address the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the social inclusion and overall well-being of recently arrived young people in Europe by taking an action-research approach, with six young people who have migration backgrounds (three from Italy and three from Greece) serving as researchers on current regional practices. 

Our Rights provides direct legal assistance and educational resources to young refugees and asylum seekers in Greece. Thanks to funding from SolidariTee and Humanity Now, the program will run from March 2023 to February 2024 and will support young people with legal casework, one to one legal advice sessions and informative workshops.

The project titled, “Transitioning to Adulthood: a pathway to autonomy and self-reliance” tested a new methodology for the integration of young people in the 16-21 age range, including granting direct and immediate access to employability support and psychological care. The project officially concluded at the end of 2021, but the partnership and referral network delivered lives on.

Velos Youth and Equal Rights Beyond Borders join forces to deliver “My Rights!”, a project that will contribute to educating unaccompanied minors and young adults on their human rights and offer them legal representation in their asylum procedures in Greece.

Velos Youth’s Housing Integration Project supports young people to build lives integrated within Greek Society. The project complements the Velos Youth holistic model and benefits young people already accessing other Velos Youth services.
