This EVS project is developed to allow young people to learn about educational systems and also to allow them to contribute to the building of various systems for youth. This EVS project will give our volunteers the opportunity to work in an environment that is open to new ideas and welcomes initiatives from the volunteers. The volunteers will work with youth workers and educators to develop workshops and training courses and also youth projects. They will interact with youth and adults and discover the needs with regard to education in our local society and help develop workshops and training curses which will optimise the learning outcomes for the various fields. They will interact with youth in the local community and discover problems that youth face today and help the organisation develop youth projects which can offer the young participants of their youth exchanges gain more from them. The volunteers will work with educators utilizing one line education platforms and help in the development of new online courses and also contributing to the methods used in online education.
Our organisation wants to help provide more opportunities for all our locals and with this project the volunteers will be able to deal with real life issues and will be able to contribute to methods and solutions for these problems and will be able to help our people develop systems to help in education on a formal and non-formal basis.
Part of the project will be to learn about new cultures but also to teach the locals about their different cultures. A1: 05/01/2016 - 04/07/2016 A2 05/07/2016 - 04/01/2017

"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!!!
