ATTENTION: German Speaking seminar!

A German-speaking 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 an European Voluntary Service/a volunteering 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 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 German-speaking 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 will receive a certificate.

Curious now? Information about both the EuroPeer project and previous events organised by EuroPeers over the last years can be found here

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.

Latvian Landscape

PBA – Contact Making Event: No One’s Left Out

Dates: 31 March – 7 April 2019

Venue:  Gauja, Latvia

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Greece, Italy, Latvia, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Slovak Republic, Spain

Application deadline: 30th January 2019

2 active youth workers from each country will come to Latvia where they will befriend other 2 participants from another country and together write a Youth Exchange project for the October 1 submission deadline.

General Description

This project will bring together 26 people from 12 countries who are relatively new to Erasmus+ 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.

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.

To avoid the situation that youth exchanges are developed only with the thought of already active young people (the ones, who already have many opportunities), we expect that in each of future projects also young people with fewer opportunities will be involved (from rural areas, with social difficulties, health issues and disability, etc.).

Participant’s Profile:

If you match the description below, please submit this application form by January 30.

– Currently involved in working with young people (on volunteer basis, or as professionals) in some youth organizations, youth centers, schools or other institutions that provide youth work, social work or extra curricular activities
– Interested to get involved in youth work even more by taking responsibility of developing a YE and becoming a host or group leader

– Well connected with actual young people in local communities/above mentioned organizations – including also young people that are currently marginalized and motivated to develop projects that include young people who are usually not that privileged…
– Have experience in some E+ project as participants (YE, or some training)
– Ready to actively participate in the whole project (preparation, CME and have time to implement YE as a follow-up in autumn ’19 or winter ’19 or ’20)
– Fluent in communication in English
