Erasmus +:KA1 - Youth Exchange - Programme Countries

Place:Cyprus, Paralimni

Dates:26/11/2016 - 03/12/2016

Project Description:

Obtaining a degree or diploma is almost a prerequisite for our youth today and the ability to freely move to other countries to study has allowed our youth to obtain education from almost any university in the world.  However having a degree does not guarantee employment.  As a matter of fact on of the factors that create large amounts of unemployment is the fact that so many people have degrees in the same fields.  Another issue of concern is that not all universities are recognised with the same respect in different countries.  Some universities are so well known that simply having a degree from that university could secure employment but then we realise that these universities also happen to be the most expensive thus not accessible to all.

Our projects aims to look at education and the value of education, meaning the value of it when we come back to our country and the value associated with the chances of finding employment with that degree or diploma.  

We have seen that young people follow fashionable educational choices and we want to evaluate this to help young people make more informed choices regarding education so that they are more employable after their education.  Giving them the tools to understand the markets before they start their studies and to make more informed choices.

The main issues covered during this youth exchange is youth unemployment and finding ways to prevent the unemployment problem for youth by giving them the tools to understand future markets and current markets to make more informed choices in education.  We will look at educational facilities and how their degrees are received in our countries and how we can understand the impact of our educational choices.  

We will also look at other methods to increase skills and competences of young people to increase their employability.  The project will allow the young people to exchange knowledge and experiences to help each other prepare for the labour markets.


Food, Accomodation is covered 100%. Travel Costs up to budget according to Erasmus + programme.

"Where Do I Belong?" Youth Exchange - Romania was an experience I wish everyone could have. The project focused on many topics that we deal with on a daily basis such as migration, refugees, inequality, barriers of different kinds that we both face and place for others to overcome. All activities were interactive and challenged the participants to come up with creative ideas, solutions or performances in a short period of time. The activities were made in a way to interact with people from different nationalities, religions & backgrounds and to question all our beliefs and cultural norms. 

Everything we did was inspiring and entertaining, a way to learn by doing and a way to learn from the others. I enjoyed every single moment and strongly recommend participating to anyone who enjoys international environment and learning in unconventional ways. 

Thank you all for being who you are, sharing your thoughts and ways of doing and special thanks to the organizers who outdid themselves! :)
