The Geoclube gives you several opportunities to become an active young person. Between participating in activities and / or projects until traveling to other countries the advantages are immense
Geoclube has been promoting various volunteer activities, as a way of promoting the common good, exercising active citizenship, solidarity and also personal and professional enrichment, especially among young people. In addition to local voluntary activities, Geoclube has been a major driver of international volunteering, being the first association of Gondomar accredited for European Voluntary Service projects and the first to receive European volunteers in Gondomar.
Convinced that solidarity is the main foundation of social work, the Geoclube has sought to integrate in its activities a solidarity, in order to raise awareness of the importance of solidarity and awareness of urgent needs at various levels, especially at local level . In addition, solidarity is also a determining factor in the development of personal and emotional skills, as well as in the development of active citizenship.
Since 2007, the Geoclube has invested in activities at European level, notably under the previous "Youth in Action" program and now "ERASMUS +".
We believe in European mobility activities as an opportunity for young people to acquire and / or improve their personal and professional skills, improve employability, gain cultural awareness and European citizenship.
As such, the Geoclube has promoted various mobility opportunities such as Youth Exchanges, International Formations, Seminars and European Volunteering Service, where all young people are invited to participate.
Combining the area of Geography, which gave the name to the Association itself, the Geoclube promotes activities of Guidance - Forest Sport.
These activities aim to foster orientation and geographic localization skills, as well as cartographic understanding and interpretation, while promoting contact between young people and nature through outdoor activities.
"In the future, due to the rhythm and dynamics of social processes, the formation of individuals must be assumed as building processes, whose pursuit necessarily exceeds the limits of formal education systems" (Luís Castanheira Pinto May 2005).
Non-formal education is above all a social learning process, centered on the trainee, through activities that take place outside the formal education system but complement it. As a civil society association, Geoclube is supported by non-formal education, which takes the form of thematic workshops, seminars, community, social or youth work, voluntary service and recreational activities.
Combining the Geography area, which gave its name to the Association itself, the Geoclube promotes Orientation activities, which give young people the geographic orientation through tools such as topography, compass and maps. These activities aim to foster orientation and geographic localization skills, as well as cartographic understanding and interpretation, while promoting contact between young people and nature through outdoor activities.
