What Could Go Wrong? How to Deal With Meestaeks in Erasmus+ projects

The training aims to help new Erasmus+ beneficiaries (Youth workers, youth leaders and project managers) to identify the most common mistakes when organizing E+ Youth projects and look at ways to prevent these mistakes with alternative solutions for when they occur.

Aims & objectives

·       To identify the most common mistakes in E+ projects during preparation, implementation and follow-up phases;

·       To find the practices that prevent difficult situations in E+ projects and increase the chances of obtaining good results;

·       To acknowledge that mistakes are part of the natural learning cycle and we can learn from them at personal level;

·       To discover strategies and management techniques to deal constructively with mistakes in a youth project at organizational level;


The program consists of 5 full training days plus an extended learning period that includes support activities before and after the training. Before the TC participants are invited to take part in online activities, assignments and one online meeting. After the training, participants will create an action plan and the team will offer online support, including two online mentoring sessions to the group.

The training will be based on collaborative training sessions that look specifically at common mistakes in youth projects and seek for ways to prevent/deal with them. We will explore mistakes in diverse ways such as Improvisation techniques, Clowning, Creative Writing and others.

To assure that this activity meets the real needs of the field, the training program will be designed after consulting the participating NA’s on the most common mistakes they identify in E+ projects.

Working language: English
