Or maybe you just want to know what does cherry on the cake have to do with youth exchange? ABOUT THE TC This 5-day training course will tackle many questions and will try to open creative space for finding different answers to quality aspect of youth exchange, its potential for non-formal education (and work with young people) and some challenges that international setting brings to work with young people. Training is developed as a means for systematic support for representatives of organizations working with young people from Erasmus+ Programme Countries and the Western Balkan region. Training could also be an opportunity for contact making and future partnership.
