Erasmus+: KA1 - Youth Exchange - Programme Countries

Place: United Kingdom - Birmingham

Dates: 05/05/2016 - 13/05/2016

Our youth experiences extreme competition from a very early age, sometimes even before they have the ability to think for themselves. Preschools today have requirements, primary and secondary schools are becoming more and more exclusive and before they know it they are competing in a brutal world simply to be able to survive. Our youth are trying so hard to be ready for today, but how many of them look at tomorrow. We have seen that many young people find themselves studying for something because it will offer a great career but when they complete their studies they find themselves at the end of a very long unemployment line.
Our projects aims to look at these problems, especially focusing on the educational choices that youth have, and more specifically the process and methods used by youth to decide what they will study. We hope to be able to give them the incite to be able to research the employment market either in their country or in the country they wish to work in, before they choose a study path so that they can maximise their chances of finding employment after they complete their studies. We will look at future jobs, and how these might interest youth, and we will compare global markets to European markets, take trends of stronger countries and see how our own countries are following these trends.

Where Do I Belong…………………...

A great question. A question that most of us have asked our self’s, our friend everyone.

Do we have an answer though, is it possible?

Well in Romania during the course of this Youth Exchange we tried and we tried hard. For me personally I kind of know how to answer this question to myself now. And for me the answer is ‘’everywhere’’. 

And why is that because in this amazing project I learn some valuable lessons. Lessons about discriminations lessons about stereotypes. I had the chance to be in the shoes of an immigrant trying to find asylum or in the shoes of a nationalist extremist activist, that gave me the ability to understand stuff to see the world through a different eye and to realize that everything is A MATER OF PERSPECTIVE. And that perspective led me to my answer. 

WDIB was an amazing project for me one of the best I attended or probably the best. The OTI team as always was amazing with the workshops and the OTI Romania team was spot on everything through accommodation (on that lovely small and homey hotel with good food) through general organization of the entire project. An amazing team that was always there to support each and every one of us with all our needs. 

I am really grateful I took part to this magnificent project not only because I get to learn all the stuff I did but because I had the chance to mix and meet lots of new people, but I also had the blessing to make new true friends. Friends that I will cherish for the whole of my life .

Until we meet again all
