No one’s left OUT!

 

 

Despite growing numbers of young people and organizations that are involved in youth mobility projects all over Europe, there are still far too many that have never heard of such projects and never had the chance to get involved. So, with this project, we want to widen the “circle” of people who are benefitting from such youth projects and build the skills of new generation of youth leaders and youth workers to develop and manage youth exchanges.

The main idea of this project is bring together 26 people from 13 organizations who are relatively new to Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme, but want to find out more how YOUTH EXCHANGES work and develop some project idea that could be implemented. During 6 intensive working days participants will have the chance to meet partners for their projects and sit down and start working on a youth exchange project ideas that would involve the young people from their organization/youth centre/community.

In line with the Erasmus+ requirements, the project’s general objectives are:

– Understanding own motivation to be involved as a youth leader/coordinator in YE

– Awareness about needs and interests of young people, especially INCLUSION needs of so called marginalized young people

– Knowing better how Erasmus+ – Youth exchanges work and how to develop good quality projects that could get approved

– Meeting project partners and building trust

– Developing concrete youth exchanges – formulating idea, developing programme, writing it down in the application and receiving feedback in order to improve it

– Agreeing on further plan in order to submit the application for next deadline and implement the YE

Not just another graffiti on the wall

With this project we want to combine several factors, such as: creating awareness on hate speech, spreading the message of defending Human Rights, boosting creativity and  giving young people instruments fighting against hate speech.

The problem about hate speech is that most of the people are not aware of what it is, that is why we with this project we want to combat ignorance and take a concrete steps in making young people (and the citizens affected by the project) understand what can be done against the spread of this negative phenomenon.

In line with the Erasmus+ requirements, the project’s general objectives are:

■ fight ignorance on Hate Speech and its consequences among the local community;

■ encourage young people to take concrete actions in the defense of Human Rights;

■ support young people in finding instruments, boosting their knowledge and awareness on what institutions do on the subject;

In the mirror

We have noted that nowadays youngsters lack certain skills, such as critical
thinking, confidence and pro-activeness whenever trying to achieve something in their social or professional life. They also tend to be passive when it comes to decision making and therefore do not foresee bright future and tend to passively wait for whatever comes to their life’s. 

This youth exchange will try to motivate the youngsters to take initiative and pursue their dreams by stepping out of their comfort zone.

This youth exchange aims to improve dialogue between different cultures, religions, and to promote diversity, foster inclusion of youth and young refugees. In addition it will enhance critical thinking of youngsters which would lead to the pro activeness and sense of initiative.

1. We will understand more about stereotypes and know how to overcome it with critical thinking;

2. Also, more knowledge about discrimination, tackling the issue of IDP’s and refugees, understand its roots;

3. We will become more culturally competent and understand the components of diversity;

4. We will understand coaching approach, be able to use it in the daily life;

5. We will also improve sense of initiative through inclusion to daily life activities such as cooking, cleaning, organizing free time space in evenings, leading various sessions and workshops;
