Erasmus+: KA1 - Mobility of Youth Workers - Programme Countries

Place: United Kingdom

Dates: 30/05/2016 - 07/06/2016

Social media has become the norm for most young people today and endless hours are spent on social media.  We are planning a training course which will help develop methods and approaching which will allow youth workers to take advantage of social media in order to help youth with the serious unemployment problems which they face during the world crisis.  The training course will address the various problems in each country and try to find EU solutions for these problems.  We will look at the negative impact of social media, especially with regard to how it affects chances of employment and give the tools to youth workers and organisations to help youth in each of the communities to take advantage of social media.  We will also develop strategies to turn social media into more of a learning experience rather than a platform to waste time.  Our hope is to be able to take social media, a tool enjoyed by all youth, and turn it into a platform which will allow them to learn and also create jobs, find jobs and even develop business skills.

Testimonials

Thank's to the Youth Exchange „Where do i Belong?” organized in Romania, in a wonderful area, named Predeal, i would like to think that i just found out where my soul and heart feels the best. 

In the first days were more relaxed and had enough space and opportunities to get to know each other and to accommodate.

So we took baby steps at first but I feel like we learned how to communicate better with people from other cultures (develop our social skills) and the most important aspect is that we were all the time encouraged to make friends through cooperation.

Personally i feel that there was not a single person with who i didn't interact with or had a dynamic activity with. 

I had the opportunity as well to organize a first workshop regarding the asylum seekers procedure from Romania together with Mihaela which decreased my fear for public speaking and also helped me to reach full potential when i want to transmit an idea in front of a numerous people.

Each activity that we had (name games, role play, creating a video, a magazine, a song about our experience during this days, building a country together, migrating to another cultures and become minority, crocodile game, game of thrones, etc) had a moral story behind, a problem that people are facing in different situations. 

This activities helped us to synchronize as a group, to realize all the barriers that a migrant, a refugee for example needs to go through, or maybe how all the stereotypes regarding genders affects our daily life without even recognize them. 

After all, I am pleased to say that this project has been really useful to share our experience, to overcome our fears, to learn to work as a one mind group, to connect everybody with everybody. Even the hosting place was amazing and the staff has been delighted and implicated.  

I am taking a picture in my memory palace to be sure that i will never forget this experience and the beautiful people which actually made this happen.

Thank you, my friends!
