Youth Can Lead Youth
Start date: May 5, 2015,
End date: Nov 4, 2015
Youth who are inside disadvantage groups find it difficult to have different social contexts where their perspective can be wider. It is the same issue in Europa as well as Sweden. Youth have difficulties to meet others from other countries/ethnicities. In order to address these problems this project creates a meeting place for youth, in this way their capacity about leadership, tolerance, social and language skills are increased. Youth Can Lead Youth is a Youth Exchange that brings together 26 future active youth from Sweden, Spain, Italy, Turkey, mainly with the background of getting involved as participants in their organizations and wanting to take further responsibility and develop as an active citizen. The exchange takes place in Örkelljunga Sweden, with visits in surrounding cities to visit and participate in activities with local youth centers and organizations as well as inspiring lectures and workshops. Non formal education methods such as Creative Drama, filmmaking, Games, Workshops are main ways to reach our objectives. IFALL and partners continue to support the youth with funding for projects, support and help in developing ideas for social change in their communities etc even after the end of the project. These youth also effect other youth in their communities to be inspired to become active, thus causing a long-term multiplier effect. In fact, this project itself is a multiplier effect of previous exchanges between IFALL and partners. At the end of the project 4 NGOs and 3 Public Bodies increase the network which will lead to sustainable change about youth and their lives.
