Keep It Real! Vilnius 2018
What does it actually make to have a REAL youth exchange? What is YOUR REALITY of youth exchange projects? You probably had some experience in applying, what were your challenges, and expectations? We want to help you with finding tips&tricks to raise quality of the future youth exchange.
„Keep it REAL!“ training course will offer space to explore what does it take to have a REAL Youth Exchange. The course is mainly aimed at those who have no or only some experience of applying for international Youth Exchange – either you have just recently applied for the grant and received negative answer or you have freshly „joined the club“ of applicants by planning to apply for a grant for the first time.
The main aim of this training is to support youth exchange applicants to increase main quality aspects in various phases of the project. The approach of this TC is based on combination of inputs and practice to let participants put hands on real experiences – explore problem solving, share advises, deal with issues which really matters. There are many quality criteria when it comes to Erasmus+ Youth Exchanges, this training course will concentrate on certain aspects that most of applicants are struggling with: youth participation, equal partnership, dimension of non-formal learning, intercultural learning, YouthPass process, seeing the whole project as a long-term learning process and dealing with possible risks. During this TC there will be possibility to practically complete the application form and receive feedback.
We are inviting representatives, young people who are actively involved in planning a youth exchange project. In the training course we are expecting up to 25 participants from Lithuania, Poland, Hungary, Portugal, Eastern Partnership and Western Balkan countries. To encourage participation of young people during selection process priority will be given to them.
„Keep it REAL“ daily programme lasts for 3 full days, arrival day on Sunday, 3rd of June and departure day on Thursday, 7th of June, 2018.
Team: Sandra Zaidova and Žilvinas Mažeikis who will share all their knowledge and experience in YE, also representatives of Lithuanian National Agency will join the training to support the process, share some technical aspects of youth exchange projects, get into direct contact with participants and share real examples from the field.
