The project Youth MADE will support marginalised young people participate in youth exchanges to explore migration, refugees, integration and inclusion, to share different cultural views and in doing so develop informed opinions and gain respect and tolerance for diversity.
The objectives of the project are:
(i) to work with marginalised youth with economic, social and educational difficulties and engage them in all stages of the project
(ii) for young people to be informed on migration, refugees, integration and inclusion and aware of different social, cultural, educational, economic and political realities
(iii) to share different cultural views and propose actions to promote the values of solidarity, democracy and respect for human rights to prevent fear of others and radicalisation
(iv) to encourage young people to engage in the democratic process – to encourage youth to participate in more international activities to develop their cultural awareness
(v) to share the results of their activities through multi media reports online
The Youth MADE project will work with youth aged 13 to 30 from marginalised rural areas with economic, social and educational difficulties and involve them in all stages of the project to secure their engagement.
Through the activities they will develop key skills and competencies relevant to the labour market which will improve their employability.
Two youth exchanges will take place:
Poland (22 April travel, 23 – 27 April training, 28 April travel)
France (7 October 2018 travel 8 – 12 October 2018 training, 13 October travel)
Each exchange will include 5 youth and 1 youth leader from each partner.
Activities will include workshops, role play, debates, presentation, art work and the youth will produce multimedia reports to disseminate their activities. By carrying out research and gathering information to develop their knowledge of migration, refugees, integration and inclusion they will have informed opinions and can become active citizens to influence their peers, their local community, elected representatives to lead to respect for human rights to prevent fear of others and radicalisation.
