This TC is dedicated for young people who have taken part in Youth in Action or Erasmus+ Youth in Action projects. The training prepares participants to share their experiences and inspire other youngsters to get involved in European mobility programmes.
You have done a European Voluntary Service (EVS), participated in a youth exchange or organised a youth initiative? Probably you have gained lots of experiences and got to know Europe from an exciting perspective.
Are you interested in staying involved and sharing your experiences with others? If you would like to tell other young people on a voluntary basis about your European experiences and encourage them to try suchlike, we invite you to join the network and become a EuroPeer!
EuroPeers are young people who have taken part in Youth in Action and/or Erasmus+ Youth in Action projects. They share their experiences and inform other young people (their peers) about mobility and youth participation opportunities in Europe. As a EuroPeer you do inform and encourage other young people to join the European experience.
Being a EuroPeer is not a job opportunity but for sure you can gain new competences and skills from which you can profit in the future. EuroPeers stay connected with the EU-programme on a voluntary basis. It’s based on your commitment and ideas to stay connected with the programme and the opportunities Europe offers for young people. This can be done in different ways and in the framework of various events.
During this international training course you will learn more about various European opportunities and how to organise different types of events to share your European experience with your peers.
You will learn:
• what being a EuroPeer means;
• more about mobility and participation opportunities in Europe for young people;
• project management skills;
• how to prepare and carry out EuroPeer events to motivate other youngsters to participate in mobility programmes;
During the training you will develop your own first EuroPeer activity that you will carry out in your home country.
To apply for the training you don’t need to be a member of an organization. Applicants who do not represent any organisation please write “none” in the application-form.
