Summary

The idea of the project is to create a path of non-formal education about youth work. SOS Europa wants to involve European and Non-European partners in a project of education for young people with the aim of improving their skills and experiences as youth workers.For reinforcing international values like peace, coexistence between people, tolerance, sustainable development it is important to create awareness of that values across borders and populations, giving young people the occasion to grow up without looking at walls and edges as limits and giving them the awareness that it is possible acting on society for positive development.For reaching this aim, it is fundamental developing education of youth workers in all ways and creating a good and efficient network of youth workers across different countries. It will help new generations in being active in political and social life of their countries, of Europe and of International Community.So, the scope of the project is to increase leadership of youth workers, through exchange of good practices between European and Non-European organisations and associations: for reaching these objectives, the project will start with a Kick Off Meeting, will see the organisation of at least two international encounters for young participants from all organisations involved (in particular, a training course and a youth exchange), and will end with a Closing Meeting for Capacity building. During project phases each partner will manage some local activities especially focused on spreading values of the project and dissemination.The idea about the theme of the proposal was born looking at how, for non-profit organisations in general, and for organisations involved in European project in particular, is becoming fundamental give to their members and to young volunteer in general an efficient education about youth work.For create efficient path of education in this field is fundamental creating a solid network between organisations from different countries and the created consortium is the best one for the proposal. All organisations have great backgrounds and skilled staffs in the field of youth and non-formal education, and are also very experienced in organising local and international projects.
