Mobility projects for youth and youth worker
Non-formal and informal learning enable young people to acquire essential competences that contribute to their personal and socio-educational development and foster their active participation in society, thereby improving their employment prospects. Through their participation in learning mobility activities, youth workers develop skills relevant for their professional development, foster new organisational practices and raise quality of youth work in general.
Youth Exchanges are meetings of groups of young people from at least two different countries who gather for a short period to implement jointly a non-formal learning programme (a mix of workshops, exercises, debates, role-plays, simulations, outdoor activities, etc.) on a topic of their interest, seeking inspiration from the European Youth Goals.
The learning period comprises a planning period before the application, preparation phase before as well as evaluation and follow-up after the exchange.
Additionally to Youth Exchanges, projects could also comprise Preparatory Visits. Preparatory visits aim to ensure high quality activities by facilitating and preparing administrative arrangements, building trust and understanding and setting-up a solid partnership between the organisations and people involved.
An organisation from Kosovo can take part in such a project as a partner. Usually, the responsibility of the partner organisation is to select participants, prepare them, support them during and after the Youth Exchange. Minimum number of participants from each group is 5, among which 1 person should be the group leader.
An organisation from Kosovo also can take a role of hosting organisation what means that the activity will take place in Kosovo. The project has to be submitted by another partner organisation from
