A training course for young people who took part in European Solidarity Corps/Erasmus+ Youth Programme projects and want to share their European experiences with their peers.

General Description

You did a volunteering activity or took part in another European solidarity Corps activity, participated in a youth exchange or organised a youth initiative? Probably you 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 can imagine telling other young people about your European experiences and encouraging them to try suchlike, we invite you warmly to become a EuroPeer! EuroPeers are young people who have already taken part in an European Solidarity Corps/Erasmus+ Youth Programme project. They share their experiences and inform other young people (their peers) about these opportunities and other ways to go abroad. This can be done in different ways and in the framework of various events.

During this international training course you will learn how to organise different types of EuroPeer events and how to share your European experience effectively with your peers.

You will attend workshops on:

  • opportunities for young people to participate in Europe
  • Mobility programmes in Europe
  • Project management and PR activities
  • Communicating the European idea.

You will also have time to develop your first own EuroPeer activity. At the end of the training you’ll get the chance to implement your activity (together with other participants) on the ENCORE event, a networking event for Belgian organizations working with international volunteers. You’ll have the opportunity to talk about a variety of topics related to European volunteering experiences and you’ll help the next generation of volunteers to have a better experience, thanks to your feedback!

During the training there will also be a Social Media team consisting of 4 people, they will be responsible for the whole social dimension of the training to the online world. If you’d like to gain media experiences, you can apply for this team.

It will give you a slightly different experience of the whole training. This team will be guided by a very enthusiastic youth leader.

Study Visit on good practices in the field of volunteering in Istanbul

Dates: 7-14 September 2019

Venue: Istanbul, Turkey

Eligible are 9 participants coming from: Iceland, Italy, Norway, Sweden

Application deadline: 25th August 2019

This study visit has been envisioned to promote good practices in the field of Volunteering as well as in the field of recognition and validation of soft skills acquired during local volunteering activities.

General Description

The Study Visit will last for 7 days (including 1 arrival day and 1 departure day). At the beginning of the Study Visit, participants and staff will introduce themselves, sharing their expectations, fears and possible contributions towards the project and will take part in various “ice-breaking” activities to create a cooperative and proactive group environment.

Participants will see first-hand examples of good practices in the field of Volunteering and in the field of recognition and validation of soft skills.

The meeting, managed by the project partner Antalya EU Center in collaboration with the Learning Designs company, will allow to visit the major Turkish organizations and institutions in the third sector, including:

These meetings will be an opportunity to network and exchange good practices on volunteering and on the certification of volunteers’ skills, which is the main objective of our project, which develops a system to recognize the skills acquired in volunteer experiences.

The institutions to be visited have been selected taking into consideration the possibility to involve them in the next steps of the project, given that Study Visits can represent powerful networking opportunities, too.

Both the participants and the visited organizations will get an explanation of the GloCal System and will be asked to contribute and participate in the process.

Participants of the Study Visit

The call is open to 9 participants from Italy.

We are looking for people with a significant role within the organization, interested in getting involved and who speak at least an intermediate level of English.

The Study Visit is cross-sectoral and is addressed to a variety of youth organizations and institutions, or their representatives with a keen interest in the recognition and certification of soft-skills at different levels, in particular through volunteering activities and with young people.

The activity is therefore open not only to NGOs or youth associations, but, for example, also to employment offices, companies, education institutions and/or other stakeholders that might be able to bridge the world of volunteering with the professional one. This Study Visit represents also the first step towards the creation of a network of associations bonded by the confidence in the value of volunteering and its expendability in the job market.

GloCal Recognition will develop a system for the recognition of soft skills acquired during volunteering activities carried out at the local level. The system is going to be adapted from “Global Recognition”, a platform previously created by Joint in collaboration with organizations from South America and Europe, aimed at the certification of international volunteering experiences. This project will, therefore, foster long-lasting cooperation between Turkish and European NGOs and will allow youngsters and local organizations to give an added value to their work.

The main concrete output of GloCal Recognition will be the creation of an online platform translated in Italian, English, and Turkish that will include:

• An assessment framework for the soft skills and a system for the emission of the certificate;

• A number of E-learning modules designed for the comprehension and awareness of users’ soft skills;

• A guidebook presenting examples of non-formal education methodologies for both youngsters and non-profit organizations, that will support them in the evaluation process of the acquired skills.

The project foresees also the promotion and dissemination of the platform through the web and various social media channels.

“GloCal Recognition” is one among the 12 projects selected within the framework of the Program “Supporting Civil Society Dialogue Between EU and Turkey Grant Scheme (CSD-V) ” funded by the Turkish Ministry of EU Affairs and by the European Union itself. The aim of the Program is to foster cooperation between Turkish and European Civil Society.

Costs

 

This project is NOT financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Accommodation and food

Food and accommodation will be covered by the project.

Travel reimbursement

For the participation in the meetings 100% of travel costs will be refund up to a maximum of 275 €.
