Training Course: people beyONd borders – tools for fighting discrimination and building more inclusive society

Dates: 17-26 February 2018

Venue: Serbia

Eligible are 22 participants coming from: Italy, Kosovo*, Montenegro, Portugal, Serbia, Slovenia

Application deadline: 27th November 2017

Erasmus+ project “people beyONd borders” is a TC to be held in Serbia, in February 2018. The main objective of the TC is providing participants theoretical and practical knowledge about current refugee’s situation in Serbia, Europe and tools to work with around the topic.

Description

This TC is designed to introduce participants to the topic of migrations and current situation in Europe regarding migrants and refugees, and to share with them tools for fighting discrimination and building more inclusive society.

What?
„people beyONd borders“ is a 10 days TC with the objective of providing participants with theoretical and practical knowledge about current migrant and refugee situation in Europe, and providing them with tools for understanding this problem, for fighting discrimination and building their community into more understanding and inclusive one.

Why?
From April 2015 until today, during “European Refugee Crisis”, over two million refugees and migrants have had their desperate journey to Europe, coming mostly from war-torn Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. These people came running away from unbearable life conditions in their countries, searching for safety and future for themselves and their families.

Their way to Europe is full of obstacles and difficulties and what they encounter once they finally reach Europe is devastating. They become subjects to discrimination, stereotypes, exclusion, and unfortunately even violence.

At the same time, media are either not reporting about this things or they’re sending incorrect, exaggerated and even dangerous information. All this creates atmosphere of not understanding, discrimination and prejudice towards refugees. In order to make first steps towards change of this atmosphere, we would like to provide young people with knowledge and tools they can use to make the change.

How?
Through workshops, lectures, interactive presentations and discussions hosted by experts on the subject, participants will learn and practice different approaches to this situation which will hopefully inspire them to act and to share their knowledge in their own community.

Who?
19 participants from 6 countries – Serbia, Kosovo*, Montenegro, Italy, Slovenia and Portugal.

Training Course: The new concept of social inclusion

Dates: 11-18 December 2017

Venue: Kolasin, Montenegro

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Bosnia and Herzegovina, France, Italy, KOSOVO*, Latvia, Montenegro, Serbia, Spain

Application deadline: 11th November 2017

The main aim of our project is to equip youth workers with competences and methods needed for providing social entrepreneurial learning to the young people with fewer opportunities (particularly young refugee and youth with migrant origin).

Description

Social entrepreneurship has been gaining a growing attention in the last few years, as a way for addressing social challenges such as migration.

Social enterprises work for the less privileged people in society; many of them have been supporting the active inclusion of disadvantaged people, contribute to job creation, and often provide services which are socially necessary and useful.

Social entrepreneurship allows young people not only to gain professional experience but also to integrate into society. Youth work can inform young people about the advantages and drawbacks of entrepreneurship helping them make informed decisions.

It makes young people reflect on the values and ethics of youth work and base their entrepreneurial decisions on them. It can also guide them to other services who can help them (employment offices, specialized training courses, local and regional administrations etc.).

Project will facilitate the sharing of practices and methods useful for social entrepreneurship creation and support.

Training Course “Cherry on the Cake” – increase the visibility of your Youth Exchange

Dates: 21-25 November 2016

Venue: Montenegro

Eligible are 30 youth participants coming from: Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme countriesWestern Balkan countries

Application deadline: 20th September 2016

The 3rd international training course “Cherry on the cake” will focus on the aspects of visibility as well as dissemination and exploitation of results aiming at increasing the impact of Youth Exchanges.

Description

An essential part of a Youth Exchange is the involvement of young people from the early stages of generating ideas all the way to the closing of the project. If given a possibility to be involved from the beginning, the period when young people learn extends far beyond the time spent in the international setting.

Youth Exchanges therefore gain greater meaning when understood in the context of linking the European dimension to the regular youth work practise in the local level. Nevertheless, often the significance of Youth Exchanges remain unknown beyond the participating young people and project organisers themselves if visibility and dissemination and exploitation of results have not been sufficiently planned and accordingly carried out along with the implementation of the project. This training course therefore focuses on how youth leaders can increase the impact of Youth Exchanges by recognising, capturing and effectively communicating the results of the project.

This activity has a long-term approach and includes weekly reading assignments six weeks prior to the residential activity based on the publication “Cherry on the cake” –Advice for quality planning of Youth Exchanges.

The publication covers the implementation of a Youth Exchange project by addressing each phase of the process: drafting, planning, preparation, implementation, conclusion and dissemination of results with the focus on what young people can learn and how youth leaders can support the process in each phase. Participants will get their own copy of the brochure at the training course and another one to take back to their organisation. After the residential training course the participants will have a chance to consult the trainers of the activity regarding the topics covered during the training course when preparing their applications.

Objectives of the training course:

• Exploring the role of Youth Exchange in long-term work with young people;
• Developing competences in planning appropriate visibility as well as dissemination and exploitation of results of Youth Exchange as an integral part of the entire project cycle;
• Discovering quality aspects of Youth Exchange associated to partnerships, non-formal-learning, international dimension and safety of young participants;
• Increasing the understanding of the roles of a youth leader in all phases of Youth Exchange.

Profile of participants:

Youth workers / youth leaders, who:

• have implemented and/or led a group in a Youth Exchange;
• have concrete plans to apply for and carry out Youth Exchanges in the near future (first half of 2017) as a part their long-term work with local young people;
• are interested in developing their competences in increasing the impact of their future Youth Exchanges;
• are passionate about work with young people;
• are at least 18 years old;

Seminar: Let’s speak about disability

Dates: 25-30 July 2016

Venue: Bar, Montenegro

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Greece, Italy, FYROM,  Portugal, Romania, Spain, Western Balkan countries

Application deadline: 15th June 2016

This project is aimed at building capacities of the youth organizations from EU and Western Balkans on how to be prepared to include more young people with disabilities in their projects and activities.

Description

The Erasmus + Youth in Action program created great impact on numbers of young people all over Europe, developing young people’s competences, self confidence and offering the unique international experience. Being aware of this amazing opportunity that Erasmus + Youth in Action program offer and provide possibilities for mobility of young people with fewer opportunities on one hand but on the other hand young people with disabilities still have very limited access to these opportunities, they are not so visible on trainings, youth exchanges or EVS (European Voluntary Service).

There are various reasons for this kind of exclusion: being in a vulnerable situation (social barriers, lacking family support, poverty, limited qualifications, unemployment, inaccessibility of environment and limited access to information). Also most of the hosting organizations/ youth works/ trainers don’t have enough capacities (knowledge and experiences) to develop programs and activates that can be accessible for everyone including people with disabilities.

With this project we want to train youth peers, youth workers and trainers providing them competences to work with people with disabilities and to recognize their potentials and talents to lead them to fulfillment of their life and dreams. According to that we start with the first activity of this project and that’s seminar in one of the most beautiful areas of the Montenegrin coast – Bar Riviera.

The objectives of the seminar are:

– To provide a platform for discussion and exchange of good practice based on theoretical inputs about inclusion of young people with disabilities;
– To build and/or strength between partnership organizations in EU and partner countries;
– To create bridges of cooperation among partners;
– To format thematic network providing information of social inclusion to all interested parties for the purpose to improve participant’s level of competences and fostering social inclusion in society;

– To developing new forms of youth work;
– To develop future cooperative projects and exchanges in Erasmus+, involving young people with disabilities;
– To encourage non formal education and youth mobility programmes as tools to support positive development of society based on active citizenship, inclusion and democratic participation.

PROFILE OF PARTICIPANTS:

– Have strong motivation and interest in the themes of seminar;
– Must use English during the whole seminar;
– Ability to make agreements on behalf of its sending organization.

The high and serious worrying level of discrimination and Human Rights violation around Europe, in schools, in neighbourhoods, in the working place, etc., discrimination by state or by peers or authorities are very often considered as normality among many young people (especially from disadvantageous background) which are either victims or neutral and indifferent.

There is an emergency to invest and develop competencies in Human Rights Education, especially among youth workers who are dealing with the most sensitive and who have in the same time the biggest capacity of change among the global population: Young people!

Main aim of this project is to develop competencies among youth workers to prepare, deliver and evaluate Human Rights Education Activities for young people (in order to have more acknowledged, skilled and pro-active youth towards various Human Rights problematic situations in their communities and in Europe in general).

For more specific objectives we envision that

  • the youth organization will mainstream human rights education in their projects
  • the youth organization will have a human rights based approach in their projects and the way they tackle social issues and vulnerable groups in their communities;
  • youth workers and young people will increase their knowledge and awareness level in topics such as: Human Rights (values, principles, study cases), Human Rights Education (methods, activities, results),social exclusion, intercultural dialogue, tolerance;
  • young people and youth workers will develop pro-active attitudes towards Human Rights
  • youth workers will develop their practical skills and competencies in Non Formal Education, specifically in Human Rights Education;
  • youth workers will act as Human Rights Education multipliers in the benefit of young people affected by Human Rights violations in their communities ;

The structure of the project is like this:

– Selection and preparation participants (February-March)
