Eye Opener

Training Course

22-27 November 2017 | Reykjavik - KEX Hostel, Iceland

In this training course you will learn all the basics you need to organise and apply for a grant for youth exchanges in Erasmus+ youth in action. In this activity we focus on youth-adult pairing (1 adult leader + 1 or 2 youth, 15-18 years old).
Objectives: - to provide information on Erasmus+ Youth in Action 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 planning of youth exchanges 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 adults and young people gets better. Some tasks are done in national groups, some in young people / adult groups and results are compared. The training shows evidence on young people's competences in project planning on their own.
