NUM is planning an eight day youth exchange named “Empower Yourself”. The activities will take place between the 4th of June and 11th of June 2016 in the Croatian city of Varaždin. This project will involve six countries these being Croatia, Poland, Malta, Slovakia, Slovenia and Italy. Each organization will send five participants aged between 18 and 25 and one leader, with no age limit (but 18+). The project will consist of 30 participants and six team leaders making the total number of 36 people. The main aim of this youth exchange is to educate young people in how to start up their business, while the general aim is to reduce the unemployment. The goal is to give guidance to the participants on how to start a business, empowerment of our participants and educating them on how to look for a job and prepare for the interview. After this youth exchange they will be in a better position to find a job for themselves or create a job by themselves. Once they are back in the communities, they will share their experience with their friends and thus the youth exchange will also reach people that were not part of this youth exchange. Apart from this we will also help more in the dissemination of the results. The partner organizations will share a report and video that we will produce during the project. This will include the results of the project. We also have talked to the local municipality and a local newspaper to share our findings with their viewers. This will be in line with the aims of the Erasmus+, that of dissemination and exploitation of results. The biggest impact of this project will be made with a final conference where will be present decision makers on local and regional level, youth advisory boards on local and regional level, local youth centre and local student council. We will achieve our aims through some workshops, outdoor activities, quiz, sharing practice of good and bad examples, games, role playing, debates, etc.
