Erasmus + Funding
15th January 2018, 19:00 - 21:00
Location: Mount Pleasant Community Centre, Chapelhall, ML6 8SB.
Callum Farquhar will be providing information on the Erasmus+ funding for European youth exchange.
The Erasmus+ fund can assist youth exchanges bringing together groups of young people from two or more countries, providing them with an opportunity to discuss and confront various themes while learning about each others' countries and cultures; they can help young people learn new skills and improve their CV.
Youth led, Scouts aged 13-30 can organise a youth exchange with other young people from one or more EU country lasting five to 21 days. Young people from different countries meet and live together to jointly carry out programme designed and prepared by them before the exchange. This could be a mix of workshops, exercises, debates, role-plays, simulations and outdoor activities. They allow young people to develop competences; discover new cultures, habits and life-styles through peer-learning; and strengthen values like solidarity, democracy and friendship.
