EYE Opener - TC On Empowerment on Youth Exchanges

Training Course

17-22 July 2012 | Gerês, Portugal

EYEOPENER offers an international learning experience to young people and practitioners active in the youth work, enabling them to develop their competences in setting up quality Youth Exchange projects under the Youth in Action Programme.
The objectives of EYEOPENER are:  to provide an informed introduction to the Youth in Action Programme, focusing on Youth Exchanges and their capacity to enhance active (European) citizenship, especially (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 non-formal learning practice, principles, and the 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. The main aim is to train people and a sub-goal is to offer the opportunity for participants to find partners. Other things, like getting to know other youth realities, are not an aim, but a (nice) side effect.
