PBA Make the Move VI

Partnership-building Activity

28 April - 3 May 2020 | Centre of Portugal, Portugal

A contact making seminar co-organized by NA BEFR and PT, in order to promote partnerships and develop quality Youth Exchanges, with a strong focus on Inclusion.


Over the past years, many youth exchange projects have been developed and run between organisations from different countries, born in the previous editions of this PBA. An exciting and challenging intercultural encounter! In order to strengthen the partnerships and especially the quality of these projects, this partnership building activity aims to provide the needed support and training elements for the participants who intend to organise such a youth exchange in the near future. Besides creating the opportunity for participants to create strong partnerships, we also wish to offer a real intercultural experience, as an inspirational example for future youth exchange implementations. This “MAKE THE MOVE VI” will therefore take place for the 5th time in the very centre of Portugal. We will try to create a strong interaction with the local community, which adds a dimension of deep intercultural experience for the participants.

This PBA “MAKE THE MOVE VI”, will focus on the following aspects: - Young people as actors in the different steps of a youth exchange, supported and coached by youth workers. · - The local community as the integral supporting structure of a youth exchange . · - The impact and permanent mark on a local community as a result of a youth exchange. The above features will not only be discussed and analysed, but will also be based upon real practical experience during the Partnership Building Activity.

AIMS & OBJECTIVES · - To create an opportunity to find good and reliable partners to make youth exchanges with, with a focus on inclusion projects · - To understand what is needed to plan a youth exchange of good quality · - To create a solid network of contacts and partnerships · - To equip the youth workers with insight in their role as coach and support · - To experience the possibilities of local involvement · - To understand the impact and social change a youth exchange can have within the local community

TARGET GROUP The partner building activity is open for voluntary and professional youth workers, working directly with young people, able to make decision in the name of their structure/group and plan to organise a youth exchange within the frame of the Erasmus+ - Youth in Action Programme.
