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.

Where Do I Belong…………………...

A great question. A question that most of us have asked our self’s, our friend everyone.

Do we have an answer though, is it possible?

Well in Romania during the course of this Youth Exchange we tried and we tried hard. For me personally I kind of know how to answer this question to myself now. And for me the answer is ‘’everywhere’’. 

And why is that because in this amazing project I learn some valuable lessons. Lessons about discriminations lessons about stereotypes. I had the chance to be in the shoes of an immigrant trying to find asylum or in the shoes of a nationalist extremist activist, that gave me the ability to understand stuff to see the world through a different eye and to realize that everything is A MATER OF PERSPECTIVE. And that perspective led me to my answer. 

WDIB was an amazing project for me one of the best I attended or probably the best. The OTI team as always was amazing with the workshops and the OTI Romania team was spot on everything through accommodation (on that lovely small and homey hotel with good food) through general organization of the entire project. An amazing team that was always there to support each and every one of us with all our needs. 

I am really grateful I took part to this magnificent project not only because I get to learn all the stuff I did but because I had the chance to mix and meet lots of new people, but I also had the blessing to make new true friends. Friends that I will cherish for the whole of my life .

Until we meet again all
