On your Marks, Get Set, Go
Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: Nov 30, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The ''On your Marks, Get set, Go'' is a shared 17 months project from 8 programme countries. All partners will implement activities within their own countries and will meet in Italy as well for a TC in September 2015. Through this project, partner organizations (Cyprus, Malta,Italy, Spain, Romania, Poland,Greece, Turkey) will try to give and propose solutions to the mismatch between the policy and practice of their NGOs in relation to the efficient support of youth workers. More specifically all partners organizations' Boards and project managers spotted on the following issues that need to be addressed through international cooperation:-Many youngsters are not aware of the opportunities that European Commission and in general EU offers to them;-There is an increased rise of xenophobia and racism, especially in the youthfield, in nowadays societies, especially after the increase of unemployment;-New trends (wrong use of social network, gadgets, mobile technology etc), in nowadays life lead youngsters to a more inactive life, far away from youth efficient and fruitful participation in society.Taking all these into consideration, all 8 partners came to the conclusion that youth workers are not enough competent to support and inspire or motivate or even lead all youngsters to a stable positive stage of improvement of themselves, of their community and of the wider society. The suggested solution to the problem is to implement a shared european project under E+ KA1, within an internationally structured framework of cooperation, in order enhance the development of youth workers for improving their role as youth motivators and leaders.So, for this reason all partners designed a project and will deliver an 8 days TC (with 26 pax, in Formia, Italy, 10-19/7/2016-arrival and departure days are included) in order to offer opportunities of training to youth workers (among them 11 with fewer opportunities) and to propose, share and promote ideas and solutions to the identified problem. The project managers from all partners and trainers' team will:-implement tools and methods basically from Non Formal Learning (like simulations, debriefing, case studies, Role Plays, Theater based sessions, reflection, media use etc) to support social inclusion and active participation;-improve and develop basic key competences of participants;-invite other relevant stakeholders and local NGOs to present and implement practices during the TC week;-promote visibility and disseminate along with all partner organizations the power of E+ programme and results;-bring and establish a stable and fruitful impact to the participants, to their organizations, to local, regional and wider LLL Society.Objectives about: *Social Inclusion-Equity:1.To share and suggest practices of social inclusion and equity;2.To help youth workers in the planning and implementing of practices for empowering social inclusion; *Active Participation:3.To develop participants social and personal skills;4.To increase awareness on the importance of youth participation in the society;5.To develop basic and transversal skills in all fields of youth work and training, using innovative and youth workers' centred pedagogical and non formal approaches;6.To improve the level of key competences and skills, with particular regard to their relevance for the labour market and their contribution to a cohesive society;7.To promote NFL as a tool for enhancing active citizenship and social inclusion; *International Cooperation and development:8.To develop the cooperation among different orgs coming from EU.The expected impact on participants:As a direct impact we expect more openness in the attitude of the participants that will help them to understand their status of living and thinking in a more complex way, how they can improve their opportunities they have as youthworkers who face new unexpected situations in society of the ongoing transformed Europe. They will also develop their competence on social and civic skills, managing, suggesting ideas and even solving small scale problems and conflicts that are related to their own life or to their own societies.The expected impact for participating organizations is that they will reform and improve their policy and practice regarding the themes of the project. Moreover, participating organizations might prepared more projects under E+.Moreover, local communities to open themselves to the rest of the world disseminating any effort they are doing regarding the topic of youth participation and social inclusion.Project outcomes and results: Youthpass and EuropassCV for pax, booklet (with nfl tools and experiences), related weblog and newspaper articles, website, new partnerships, small scale local TC.
