The YUFE Civic Star will be awarded for active citizenship related actions, in which universities and cities work together to develop solutions to local challenges, many of which are also of European and global relevance. Gaining the YUFE Civic Star means that citizenship and personal competencies have been developed as well as having contributed to society.
Learners can take part in YUFE actions in society by choosing to participate either in the YUFE Help Desks, YUFE Community Volunteering Programme or YUFE@Home Initiative. It is not possible to mix the activities in order to gain the YUFE Civic Star. Through these activities and specific tasks, learners will become active members of society and co-build strong university-citizen communities. By doing so, the learner contribute towards solving European challenges and co-create a more cohesive society for current and future generations living in Europe and beyond.
The work towards the YUFE Civic Star consists of training, the activity itself and self-reflection. Achievement of the YUFE Civic Star will be assessed as “pass” or “no pass” based on the self-reflection report and the verification of worked hours by the YUFE assessor.
The Personal Development Plan will give an overview of the progress made in the journey leading to the YUFE Civic Star.
