Erasmus + : KA1 - Youth Exchange - Programme Countries

Place: United Kingdom, London

Activity Dates: 12/08/2017 - 20/08/2017

 

Participants per country (incl. leaders): 5

Project Description:
This youth exchange is based on a training course offered by our organisation that helps people understand the concept of opening a business and looking at all the elements required to do so successfully. The idea is to host a youth exchange on the same subject offing the opportunity of young people from different countries who have followed the course and have had success in business to share their knowledge and experience with other young people who are interested in starting a business of their own.

The objectives of this youth exchange is to target the huge problem with youth unemployment in the EU and to help young people interested in starting their own business to understand the risks and advantages of starting their own business. By including people who have successfully opened their own business in various countries we allow for greater learning by the participants and also for possible new cooperation and opportunities for youth.

The main issue addressed in this project is that of youth unemployment, looking at how many young people embark on the journey of their own business, we see that this is supported by the EU with programs like Erasmus for young entrepreneurs and we also see this on a local level with initiative helping young people to set up their business with financial support. With all these opportunities available to young people we need to ensure that young people are prepared for opening their own business thus giving them the entrepreneurial skills and knowledge to do so effectively and allowing for greater chances of success.

We believe that this project could be a start in helping organisations help solve the problems with youth unemployment with youth in their countries and also help boost local economies.

Testimonials

Thank's to the Youth Exchange „Where do i Belong?” organized in Romania, in a wonderful area, named Predeal, i would like to think that i just found out where my soul and heart feels the best. 

In the first days were more relaxed and had enough space and opportunities to get to know each other and to accommodate.

So we took baby steps at first but I feel like we learned how to communicate better with people from other cultures (develop our social skills) and the most important aspect is that we were all the time encouraged to make friends through cooperation.

Personally i feel that there was not a single person with who i didn't interact with or had a dynamic activity with. 

I had the opportunity as well to organize a first workshop regarding the asylum seekers procedure from Romania together with Mihaela which decreased my fear for public speaking and also helped me to reach full potential when i want to transmit an idea in front of a numerous people.

Each activity that we had (name games, role play, creating a video, a magazine, a song about our experience during this days, building a country together, migrating to another cultures and become minority, crocodile game, game of thrones, etc) had a moral story behind, a problem that people are facing in different situations. 

This activities helped us to synchronize as a group, to realize all the barriers that a migrant, a refugee for example needs to go through, or maybe how all the stereotypes regarding genders affects our daily life without even recognize them. 

After all, I am pleased to say that this project has been really useful to share our experience, to overcome our fears, to learn to work as a one mind group, to connect everybody with everybody. Even the hosting place was amazing and the staff has been delighted and implicated.  

I am taking a picture in my memory palace to be sure that i will never forget this experience and the beautiful people which actually made this happen.

Thank you, my friends!
