BiTriMulti (BTM) Netherland - Multilateral Training Course for Newcomers in Youth in Action, Action 1.1

Training Course

17-21 April 2012 | Netherlands

Newcomer training on Youth Exchanges by the network of National Agencies

The BiTriMulti training supports voluntary as well as full-time youth workers dealing directly with young people in developing their first international Youth Exchange in the framework of the YOUTH IN ACTION programme.

The aim of the BTM training course is to offer an international learning experience to practitioners active in the youth work field, enabling them to develop their competences in setting up quality Youth Exchange projects under the Youth in Action Programme.

Objectives of BTM:
- To provide an informed introduction to the Youth in Action Programme, focusing on Youth Exchanges and their capacity to enhance young people’s active engagement in the making of Europe (though not exclusively) for newcomers to the programme;
- To offer an individual and group learning experience through a simulated process on setting up a Youth Exchange project;
- To develop the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes to organise a Youth Exchange, based on the non-formal learning practice, principles, and quality standards of the Youth in Action Programme;
- To enable participants to reflect on their learning and to familiarise themselves with Youthpass – the strategy on the recognition of non-formal learning in the youth field, its technical tool to produce Youthpass Certificates, and its application in Youth Exchanges in particular and the Youth in Action Programme in general;
- To offer the opportunity to meet possible partner groups and to make contacts in other countries.

Programme: The BTM training is a learning-by-doing experience, built on a simulation exercise which is interspersed with workshops, info sessions, activities to improve the group dynamics, and ends with an evaluation.

The Network of National Agencies for "Youth in Action" organises a series of BTMs each year. You'll find an overview on all the upcoming BTMs at
