YW - Inaccessible project application made accessible: a successful way for Deaf people to write project applications
Start date: 01 Aug 2016, End date: 31 Dec 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

With the introduction of the new Erasmus+ programme, the Youth Agencies in the EU have organised a lot of different informative sessions to inform organisations about the advantages of the Erasmsus+ and about the new application process. As a national sign language is the first language for many Deaf young persons, they have been excluded from this kind of activities. A sign language interpreter cannot be utilised every time a Deaf young person ask about it. With the experience the European Union of the Deaf Youth (EUDY) has gained in project funding from the Erasmus+ programme and the European Youth Foundation, EUDY would like to take up this opportunity to develop a project training for its Full Members, by allowing sending their youth workers and/or board members who are working for their respective organisations to keep it running. By participating in this training, the youth workers will get the opportunity to learn more about the Erasmus+ opportunities and also to learn more about project applications. Deaf people will receive tips, tools and experience from other participants to make a successful project application. Participants will share experiences and build different tools to develop a toolkit for other Deaf young persons to be able to write an application. The participants will address an actual issue from their own communities to make a draft project application, after which they will be able to work out the actual application, which hopefully leads to a successful grant.At the same time the participants will get acquainted with Norwegian culture as the location is in the midst of Norwegian outbacks, and the Ål Folkehøyskole og kurssenter for døve will be responsible for additional activities to strengthen the Norwegian culture of the participants.
