Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a project called “Intercultural Education and Youth Work for More Inclusive Europe” a Training Course that which will take place from 03rd until 11th September 2017 in Vilnius, Lithuania and a Study Visit on 16th until 21st October in Yerevan, Armenia.
Civil society organizations can play an important role as a response to the crisis and radicalization that has become its consequence. There are examples when NGO's and active citizens have gone beyond their capacities in order to fill the gap left by national and regional authorities and have proven they have the will and the need to be heard. This positive cases must be multiplied and the role of civil society has to be expanded. Thus, creating network of organizations working or willing to work in the field of migration and deradicalization is essential. It is also very important to build the capacities of staff members, social workers, youth workers and human right activists in the field so they can provide adequate support to young people with refugee and migrant background as well as to young people affected by "migrantaphobia" and violent extremism.
There is a clear need of empowering civil society organizations which are working with refugees and migrants so they become stronger actors in the current refugee crisis. They need to be better prepared to contribute to the resolution of the refugee crisis and to policies for the integration of refugees. This may result in providing both high quality support to the refugees and migrants as well as in supporting the EU and national policy making with valuable input.
This is why we came up with an idea of a 2 Stage Project - Training Course in Lithuania and a Study Visit to Armenia that will be gathering 36 youth workers and staff members of Civil Society organizations both from the EU (Lithuania, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden) and the Neighboring partner countries (Armenia, Belarus, FYR Macedonia, Georgia, Moldova, Serbia, Ukraine). To ensure a long term impact we will involve same 36 youth workers in both activities of the project.
This event will bring together 36 participants from the EU and Neighboring Partner Countries. The event will be held in English. There are 2 vacancies available and participants should have minimum 18 years old and involved on the youth field.
The Erasmus + Programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants – up to 275 euros to Lithuania and 360 euros to Armenia. There will be a participation fee of 40 Eur. per participant.
