In this project we will share our experience with our European colleagues, help them to develop proper strategy and service provision as well as organise projects for young people from migrants background to help them to enjoy equal opportunities and be involved in meaningful activity. The project is in line with the European Commission's agenda on migration which points that EU countries and institutions, international organisations, civil society, local authorities and national partners should work together to tackle common issues.The Job shadowing project will involve 3 youth workers from Programme and Partner countries ( Turkey, Romania and Belarus). The project will take place in Plymouth, UK between July and October 2016. Duration of activity stages are 8 days for each participant.The objectives of the project are:- Improve the level of key competences and skills of youth workers from countries that faced recent wave of migration.-Improve understanding of practices, policies and systems related to migration- Enhance cooperation between organisations working on different levels ( cross-section partnership)- Increase skills and knowledge of youth workers in project management.- Increase intercultural awareness - Enhance capacity of newly formed organisations and informal groups to participate in Erasmus+ projects .The programme is logically divided into 5 parts each of which focuses on particular area of migration, youth work and features of hard-to-reach groups..The project will be based on non-formal and informal education. Work individually and in pair, team building exercises, problem-solving tasks, simulation exercises, brainstorms, presentations, round table discussion, video/DVD watching, sessions for evaluation and reflection, etc. will be used throughout the project to ensure the participants have an opportunity to express themselves freely and to achieve maximum results in the learning process. The project is in line with Erasmus+ aims and objectives such as improving competences of youth workers, linked to their professional profile, promoting cultural awareness, increasing of capacity, attractiveness and international dimension of organisations active in the youth field. The project will help the organisations from Programme and Partner countries to build network and cooperation for future projects.As result of this project, the organisations/groups involved will be able to take active part in Erasmus+ programme and deliver the youth projects for their target groups ( migrants and refugees ) with high standard of management.Amber Initiatives gained extensive experience in organisation of different projects ( training, youth exchanges, job shadowing) in the frame of Youth in Action/Erasmus+. We have more than 70 partners in EU countries and are working on local, regional and international level. Sharing our experience with our colleagues, which have no experience working with migrants will benefit them and increase their capacity and will prepare them for local and international activity.
