Europe: Pursue What Counts 2016
Start date: Aug 19, 2016, End date: Jul 18, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

As Exodus continues to expand its partnerships and projects with youth organisations throughout Europe we have recognised a growing need and desire and need to share knowledge and good practice of youth work across Europe. Through our youth exchange programmes across Europe we have received much interest in EVS from potenital participants and we feel that in turn they would greatly benefit from an EVS placement in our Lisburn centre.Exodus Lisburn is accredited as a Sending, Co-ordinating and Host EVS organisation. Through our previous Erasmus+ projects we have been able to promote our potential EVS placement across our Partnering and Neighboring countries in Europe. Exodus has two centres based in Coleraine and Lisburn Northern Ireland. Through these centres we train, host and run youth programmes reaching hundreds of young people both locally and nationally. Through our Lisburn centre we would provide vast opportunities for potential EVS participants to develop and implement youth projects both locally and across Northern Ireland.We already have a good working relationship with the Sending Organisation and therefore have already been able to identify a suitable participant for this project. We have shaped the programme around this individuals interests, skills and abilities so that they will be able to maximise the learning outcomes and benefits for both the organisation and the individual.Anticipated outcomes of the EVS project:- Create opportunities for development and growth for those marginalized across Europe.- Reach out locally to the surrounding and disadvantaged communities in Lisburn.- Generate and promote awareness of European citizenship through the EVS placement and the projects they would develop.- Create a sense of social cohesion between the community of Lisburn and the wider European community.- Equipping the participants through training, delivery in transferable skills and generating a good work ethic.- Develop the employability of the EVS participants and those they come into contact with, equipping them with transferable skills- Build on and develop the participants creativity in planning and developing new programmes within the venue and local communityThe project itself will involve a range of activities taking into consideration their current skills and interests it will be a range of activities from assisting and shaping the Saturday Night Programme to developing the website and translating resources. It is anticipated that from this placement the participants will gain a high level of knowledge and experience in youth work- skills and knowledge that are transferable and multipliable upon their return to Spain. The potential is great not only for the Host Organisation and the participant but for the youth in the area of Spain (Huelva & Salou). It would be the hope that the participant would be able to apply the models of youth work they experience and shape during their placement upon their return to Spain - improving and impacting their local youth base.
