Outcomes of the activity

The project’s preparation process already had an impact on the promoter organizations and youth workers we work with, as most of us contributed to the application process. This continued further when partner promoters were asked to conduct needs assessment with their young people so as to learn how the project outcomes could go beyond this project. At the same time, the project also influenced the creation of partnership networks for the partners’ future cooperation.
At the participants’ and hence the target group level, project impacted on:
- Developed skills, knowledge and the right attitudes allowing participants to implement high quality project in the future;
- Improved confidence to undertake local/regional/national and international projects;
- Greater awareness developed as to the issues that may arise when managing a project (e.g. Importance of having a dedicated team with well-defined tasks, importance of planning each step before jumping into work, problems/conflicts and resolving them, etc.)
- Valuable partnerships and joint follow up activities developed
- Improved motivation to be an even more active citizen and hence role model for others;
- Greater self-esteem and drive for self-realization though the work carried with young people and the local and /or international level.
Moreover, partner organizations benefited from:
*Having their staff members and coordinators trained
*New ideas and examples of best practices in quality project management brought to the organisations and work at the local level
*Stronger international partnerships developed
*Renewed motivation and inspiration to undertake future projects with and for young people. '
Therefore, through the proposed KA1 mobility, applicant and partner organizations supported those already involved or demonstrated strong desire to engage in the European youth projects to develop key competences to prepare and deliver high quality youth activities in the future.
- After the project, the participants were more familiar with non-formal learning methods, different simulation games, role plays, techniques for an interactive presentation, which empowered project target group to act easily during working in local communities on different project and initiatives;
