Summary of the project :
This youth exchange will bring together 36 participants from 6 countries: Portugal, Poland, Estonia, Spain, Italy and Romania.
Social exclusion is a major social problem of our time, which has replaced the “old notions of” poverty and marginalization.
Social exclusion is often a cause of poverty, conflict and insecurity. If we are to tackle it effectively, we need to identify where’s the problem, understand it better and find appropriate ways of working with different partners and stakeholders.
The main theme of this youth exchange will be focused on raising European awareness to the possibilities of a more inclusive society. The idea of this project meets the expressed need that society has to deal efficiently with social exclusion, discrimination/marginalization within young people. This project will treat the phenomena of exclusion originated by insecurity, feelings of estrangement and increase of unemployment rate among young people. With this youth exchange we aim to develop the skills and competences relevant to tackle social exclusion, thus fostering active participation of excluded and marginalised groups. Key concepts which will be explored in this youth exchange: inclusion, exclusion, discrimination, empowerment, youth participation, active citizenship, etc.
Participants will learn new information, they will have space for discussion, debates, sharing and development of new tools on how to facilitate the work with youngsters who suffer from social exclusion.
The Youth Exchange will use non-formal education methodology which will be based on open and interactive approaches and directly aimed at creating a safe and comfortable learning environment for the participants (that will facilitate the development and acquisition of new skills and competences), thus contributing to their social and personal development. Within the youth exchange each participant will be able to develop his own capacities and in particular the ability to get in contact with unknown people coming from different nations as well as to work in a multicultural team (getting to know people of different ages, with different backgrounds and lifestyles). They will develop: the ability to listen to other ideas, improve their communication, come up with initiatives that promote inclusion, etc.”.
Capacity to get in contact with unknown people coming from different nations/ages/backgrounds and lifestyles and to work in a multicultural team;
• Communication skills due to communication in foreign languages thanks to the main working language being English;
• Intercultural skills since not only a great deal of work will imply discussing with other European fellows but also because we opted for cohabitation and so participants will share rooms with nationals of other states (thus having a stronger possibility to relate);
• Interpersonal skills thanks to the very nature of this youth exchange and the need to constantly relate with others, being empathic towards target groups in need, positive attitude towards learning;
• Analytical skills because of the constant requirement of assessing different situations and presenting conclusions; • Critical thinking skills;
• Negotiation skills, Self-analysing skills and Problem solving skills;
