Partnership-building Activity

23-27 November 2020 | Vilnius, Lithuania

Contact-making seminar for organisations working with youth with special needs under the guidelines of the European Solidarity Corps (ESC) and Erasmus+ (Youth) programs.

Aim:  To encourage and support organisations that work with young people with special needs to develop inclusive projects under the guidelines of the European Solidarity Corps (ESC) and Erasmus+ (Youth) programs. 

The activity will facilitate getting to know each other’s work and interests, explore potential ideas for common projects and build experience and quality partnerships.

The activity will bring together different representatives of organisations, working directly with young people with special needs. We invite both newcomers and more experienced organisations to the program. In three full working days, we will provide the space and inspiration to network and to discover the factors which compose good, inclusive projects.  It will be the start of planning projects together.
