Supporting volunteers : Mission 2011+
Start date: Dec 1, 2010,
Linking national and European democratic participation is a training on representation, advocacy and democratic participation of young people active in YFU and AFS organisations in Europe. Its main aims are to link policy at European and national levels to the values and goals of YFU and AFS organisations in order to encourage young people's active participation and raise awareness of the interdependence of national and European level youth policy. The training is a part of a broader strategy on empowering national organisations to promote democratic participation among their volunteers in order to prepare them for the responsibilities that lie ahead while also creating an open environment that allows the organisations to promote their core values and methods.The training will take place in Brussels, Belgium in December 2010 and will be organised by an international organising team of trainers from the EEE-YFU and EFIL networks, together with the two main promoters. Participants will be 18 experienced youth workers from 12 different organisations, with some level of responsibility and influence in their national organisations, that will be able to multiply their learning points and co-operation initiatives after the training.
