The learning through intercultural exchange is a bilateral project. One part of the project will take part in Valencia Spain and the other part take place in Dudley UK. The project will engage 8 young people from the UK and 8 young people from Spain with 2 leaders from each of the countries and extra support workers to support the young people with fewer opportunities. The aim of the project is around intercultural exchange and understanding new languages.The project will use the methodologies of workshops, activities, languages and sharing through intercultural exchanges on a day-to-day basis. The young people will share common issues and share also ways of overcoming some of the issues they face on a day-to-day basis in their own countries.The young people will gain new learning from the project through intercultural living and communicating together for 7 days.They will gain understanding of the cultures of the other young people from different backgrounds and different ethnic groups. The project allows them to meet young people maybe they would never have never met with before this project. The young people will learn through using the eight competences through the use of the Youth Pass certification.They will gain new skills and competences from being involved in the programme. They will gain planning and organisational skills, skills working with people from different cultures, increased understanding and breakdown some of the stereotypes that exist in the world today. Enlight and its partners hope that the young people will also begin to get rid of some of the fear they have of travel and the fear of meeting somebody new and building positive relationships with other young people across Europe. Young people will also learn more around Europe and gain an understanding from another young person's point of view.The participants will learn some common words in Spanish and Spanish and people will learn common words in English. The participants will be able to use the new skills to help them if they decide to work or study in Europe or UK.
