Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Czech Republic, France, Germany, Lithuania, Slovak Republic

Learning how to take care of money at a young age can be crucial in ensuring good finances later in life. By implementing the two-phase project, we want to contribute to financial literacy in society by educating young people in their personal finances.

General Description

Learning how to take care of money at a young age can be crucial in ensuring good finances later in life. By implementing the two-phase project “Money does not grow on trees” under Erasmus+ program, we want to contribute to financial literacy in society by educating young people in their personal finances.

We think it is our responsibility to prepare the next generation to manage their financial affairs.

The project “Money does not grow on trees” is consisted out of 2 parts. The first part is the Partnership building activity or PBA. It is targeted for teachers, organization representatives and youth workers or anyone that has knowledge of financial literacy and would like to share his/her knowledge.

Together, we will concept the second phase, which is the Training Course (TC) for youth, and show young people how to deal with their own financial affairs.

Objectives:

  • Bringing professionals together to learn from each other and to share the best practices
  • Form new partnership bonds that could continue in the form of Erasmus+ initiatives/projects by using non-formal tools
  • Analysis of specific problems/ issues related to educational programs and approach to financial literacy.
  • Based on this knowledge, preparing sessions for the second project phase (creating methodology and program for the training course.)

Costs

 

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Accommodation and food

The hosting organisation of this offer will organise and covers the costs for accommodation and food.

Travel reimbursement

Travel costs will be reimbursed based on distance band and original receipts/tickets and provided bank account after the event.

  • Czech Republic – 20 euro
  • Slovak Republic – 180 euro
  • Germany, Lithuania – 275 euro
  • France – 820 euro

Participation fee

Each participant is invited to contribute to this course with 20 Euros.

A modest contribution from participants to the overall costs of a project helps to create a sense of investment and ownership as well as participants tend to value what they receive more when they have contributed to it. Those costs will contribute to the implementation of the project activities and raising the quality of the educational part as well as the overall project management.

Training Course: Get Transnational Get Solidarity (Youth Initiatives, first step towards empowering youngsters to be actors of solidarity actions)

Dates: 1-6 July 2019

Venue: Cercedilla (Madrid), Spain

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 30th April 2019

Get Transnational is a 5 days training course about preparing, running and evaluating quality European Youth Projects for young people within Erasmus+ Programme and the European Solidarity Corps.

General Description

Get Transnational 2019 wants to contribute to the values and principles of ESC by incorporating and further fostering the solidarity dimension in the projects that participants will develop during the course.

The aim of this training course is to promote and develop European Youth projects in the field of Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps (ESC), like Transnational Youth Initiatives or the so called, Solidarity Projects, while creating spaces to stimulate the spirit of entrepreneurship, creativity and solidarity among the group of participants.

The objectives of the course are:

1. To match European partners who are interested in developing European Youth Projects with a strong solidarity dimension in order to cope with different challenges perceived by young people at national or international level.
2. To create a meeting point for potential partners that would like to develop an European Youth Project through Erasmus+ Programme and ESC.
3. To introduce EntreComp, a comprehensive competence framework, as a tool for young people to develop their entrepreneurial competences while implementing their own projects.
4. To explore the European dimension on Solidarity of European youth projects.
5. To foster the acquisition of different skills by participants, such as communication, teamwork, project management in international activities and networking.
6. To develop specific proposals for future European youth projects: Transnational Youth Initiatives in the frame of Erasmus Plus and Solidarity Projects in ESC.

The methodology of the training course is based on the fundamental principles of non-formal education. The methods provided will enable participants to fully participate in the learning process.

Learning from experience will be a fundamental pillar in the way the course will be facilitated. The course is inspired in key aspects of non-formal education like the participant centred approach which will imply that the team of trainers will keep in mind the participants’ prior experience in youth projects.

The learning process will continuously adapt to the participants’ needs and motivations as well as the group’s work rhythm.nEntreComp, the Entrepreneurship Competence Framework, will be introduced and used as a reference.

Moreover, an essential element of the methodology is based on the holistic nature of the learning experience, through methods that involve not only cognitive or intellectual approaches but also covering the emotional and attitudinal ones. This way, the learning is enhanced as it embraces the three dimensions of human learning.

The diversity of working methods (presentations, role plays, simulations, debates, energizers, individual reflection questionnaires, technical project management, feedback techniques, teamwork, etc) will make more sense than ever in order to cover a practical and effective project management of transnational youth initiatives.

The international composition of the group of participants will be an asset to explore the multicultural dynamics of teamwork and thus will contribute to incorporate new learning at the level of cultural diversity.

The seminar will tackle TC elements for KA1-2-3 project coordinators on how to deal with crucial project management moments, how to avoid main problems and be ready to react on the spot when a trouble occurs.

General Description

The seminar with TC elements for KA1-2-3 project coordinators on how to deal with crucial project management moments, how to avoid main problems and be ready to react on the spot when trouble occurs;

This seminar on project management with the view to what are the quality rules of E+Y projects (partnership, cooperation, sharing of duties and responsibilities, participation, dissemination, group process and international organizational culture). Risk management elements and change challenge will be additionally include in the programme.

We observe a big dissonance between what is written in applications and what beneficiaries report afterwards. We also see that they face many similar problems during project implementation that lead partners to disagreement, fights or withdrawing from projects. We observe constant FB recruitment of participants for the TC, YE that cause very low quality of dissemination of the results.

Therefore, we would like to give project coordinators (new, middle experienced) a space to feel inside the problems they face and to find the way out.

The aim is also to show the participants the consequences (both educational, formal etc.) of low quality management of the projects to help them to avoid those harsh situations.
