Erasmus +:KA1 - Youth Exchange - Programme Countries


Place:United Kingdom, London


Dates:13/08/2016 - 21/08/2016


Project Description:

Sports should be a part of every person’s life in some form or another, it forms part of a healthy lifestyle and helps people to develop many skills like cooperation, team playing, responsibility and a sense of belonging.  Sadly though sports is not always accessible to all people and even those involved in sports are so competitive that some even resort to substance abuse simply to stay on top.  

This youth exchange will look at sports from two perspectives; making it accessible to everyone and allowing people to find employment in the field of sports.  

The main issues to be covered in this project are access to sport by young people and evaluating the quality and quantity, the support offered to young people from school levels and the continued obstacles they face as they grow up.  The second issue to be explored is the use of illegal substances in sports, evaluating why people feel the need to resort to such action and how we can overcome these problems.  Finally we will be looking at ways that young people can find employment in the field of sports, either by discovering gaps in the market or by creating jobs in the communities that need them.

Food, Accomodation and Travel Budget is covered according to Erasmus+ programme.

"Where do I belong?" Youth Exchange - Romania was one of the most beautiful and succesful experiences I have had so far. I feel truly grateful for each and every person, story and moment we shared. The knowledge gained, the learning outcomes and engagement of participants was inspiring. The quality of each national team stood out throughout the entire project as the group dynamic grew with each day. WDIB was yet another amazing chance to work close to OTI representatives, to absorb their know-how and to gain new skills, as the involvment of each participant was taken care of, offering a feeling of empowerment and involvement. On a logistical level, the organising was spot on and each impediment was solved in a natural way, as part of the learning process. The chemistry we, as facilitators, felt was impressive and it gave us even more reasons to feel like it is worth it to keep going and to make the change we wish to make. After participating in many Eramus + projects, I can truly say this was one of the very best. This gives me hope and excitement for what is yet to come. Where do I belong? Where people as beautiful as those on this project are :) Thank you, OTI!!!
