Aims & objectives

The ATOQ training course will provide the participants with opportunities to: 1. Critically reflect upon their previous international youth exchange experience(s) and the impact on young people, organisations and wider community; 2. Increase the understanding of different quality aspects of youth exchanges such as: active participation of young people, cooperation with partners and other stakeholders, intercultural learning, programme design, impact and dissemination of results; 3. Experience a non-formal learning process and understand how to support young people’s learning in the project; 4. Improve their project management competences (knowledge, skills and attitudes) in order to better organise the different phases of a youth exchange project.
