TYE - Tools for Youth Exchanges

Training Course

6-12 March 2023 | Reykjavík, Iceland

A Youth Exchange (YE) needs content, but behind the content are tools. TYE is a training that enables participants to explore tools around group processes, learning, involvement of young people, and how to facilitate these tools during a YE.
