"Stretch Your Mind to Innovative and Creative Play!" is a Group EVS Program organized in Rijswijk, The Netherlands.
This program aims to stretch the world (mind borders) of young volunteers and stimulate creative and innovative thinking through sports and recreative activities. Innovation is the implementation of creative ideas. This project enables to stimulate young people's creativity and innovative spirit by being in the Netherlands with 24 other volunteers from different EU countries. This project creates an ideal set up for imagination and innovation.

The program takes place from 27 July to 23 August 2009. A group of 24 volunteers (out which 10 volunteers will be young people with fewer opportunities) will take active part in the summer holiday activities (Vakantiebos) in the multicultural youth centre Rijswijk. This program aims and has the potential to give young people a first experience of European Voluntary Service promoting intercultural learning and European awareness in a mixed group experience. Vakantiebos activities and the activities as a group in Don Boscohuis Rijswijk will ensure that the learning takes place not only on an individual basis but also in a group. It gives 24 young people from 12 different countries a good opportunity, to Cross the Borders of their countries, Culture, language and at the same time get to know the youth work on a European scale and will promote many more individual EVS possibilities for our organization and partner organizations.
