Beyond borders

Project description: “Beyond Borders” is a youth exchange project organized by Multilingual Youth Perspective for young people in order to create and develop awareness about migration and refugee. The target of the project is point out the refugee problem which is insoluble and actual problem this days. We believe that sharing is a connective power and sharing is not mean just sharing concrete things. This people can’t defray their primary needs like food and sheltering. Even if we don’t have anything to share, we don’t loose anything with sharing our love and smile and it helps them to grow up without hate. Refugees have education and health care needs and they’re suffering with psychological problems. Rather then looking at the refugees as a problem, we will focus to look at them as a potential. The role of NGOs are very important in this case. The main activity will take place on 26th of September 4th of October 2017 in Samos Island – Greece. Youth Exchange is open for 40 participants from 8 different countries: Greece, Turkey, Hungary, Austria, Denmark, France, Poland and Spain.

This training course is designed for who interested in with refugee subject and who wants to learn more about it.

The project is based on learning-by-doing experience, built on workshops, info sessions, simulation games, evaluations, practical assignments, group activities, practising, modelling, etc., in the same time creativity will be the main tool to approach these topics for young people. The training course is built on using the non-formal education methodology as this is the best way to learn in a large intercultural team. We will focus on the personal and social development of young people, as trainers we will give the space for creativity, to communication, to build teams, to make decisions, to understand issues while working together. These actions will be facilitated by professional youth workers, as well as media workers. However, we will emphasize that young people should make most of it by active participating in the program and even creating parts of it.

During the training participants will have an opportunity to discover themselves, develop their personal, communication and presentation skills by working alone and in groups to foster creation of the own projects for their communities. During the training course the participants will discover themselves, develop their personal and professional skills. They will get the opportunity to gain and/or develop all the 8 key competences of life long learning.

The participants will learn how to communicate with their target group, how to use new media in youth work and in the work of their organizations, how to make successful campaigns and how to implement them in the work of their organizations.
