The project will give Maja an opportunity to demonstrate her sense of initiative, entrepreneurship and creativity at work, as well as the possibility of contributing to the development of foreign local community and her sense of belonging to it. The project will have a direct impact on all parties involved, i.e. a participant, local and foreign youngsters, youth workers, local community and partner organizations, particularly: by emphasizing creativity in the field of youth work and active involvement in the area of unemployment, by developing new method of work, by enhancing interpersonal, intercultural and international relations, by preventing and overcoming prejudgments, racism and other attitudes leading to exclusion, by promoting European cooperation in the youth field and by promoting the Erasmus + programme and the possibilities and opportunities that it provides.
