EYE Opener - Training Course On Empowerment in Youth Exchanges

Training Course

24-29 October 2023 | Rome, Italy

In this training course you will learn all the basics to organize and apply for a grant for youth exchanges in Erasmus+ (Youth), with a priority focus on projects concretely involving young people from the very beginning of the process.

General Description

The aim of the 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 (KA152).

The training relies on setting the basis of quality in youth exchanges. It will also provide the space to develop concrete project ideas among quality partnerships, targeting at submitting application proposals for the coming Erasmus+ (Youth) deadlines.


to provide information on Erasmus+ (Youth) youth exchanges

to provide a group learning experience in the process of setting up a youth exchange project

to develop basic skills, knowledge and attitudes to organise a youth exchange

to understand non-formal learning and young people’s participation in learning

to explore the role of a group leader in young people’s learning process

to enhance the active participation of young people in the planning of youth exchanges

to offer the opportunity to meet possible partner groups and to make contacts in other countries

to promote equal-footed partnerships among young people and organisations 

The fact that young people can take part in the training gives a whole new dynamic to the process. Young people get first-hand knowledge on project building and the cooperation between youth leaders and young people gets better.

Some tasks are done in national groups, some in young people / youth leader groups and results are compared. The training shows evidence on young people’s competences in project planning on their own.
