Aims & objectives

- To test the training modules and their quality through a pilot training for youth (blended mobility of young people)
- Equip youth with both knowledge and skills, which would further empower them to work proactively in their communities on integration issues and would foster the creation of local and national alliances and networks across Europe.
- Provide opportunities for youth leaders from several European countries to learn about positive examples of the integration of refugees, asylum seekers and newly arrived migrants at a local level
- For participants to better understand the complexity of successful integration approaches at community level
- For participants to set up an action plan for the community work in the own country
