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.

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!
