"Dare to Dream"

International Youth Exchange
“Dare to Dream”

Hamburg, Germany


Success sprouts from the seed of imagination. The common point of many success stories is to pursue a dream. 48 percent of the answers given by people to the question of what is your biggest dream are constituted from “having only a profession and guaranteeing themselves”. People are perceived as only come to high posts and doing great careers when it is said that pursuing the dreams.

Our goals:
Young people, including European countries, come in the form of individuals who do not have ideals more and more and are being driven away in order. This problem is growing in the countries of our partners from day to day. The systems, patterns and prejudices reduce the imagination capacity from 97% when it is in kindergarten to 3% when it comes to the age of university, and make young people forget to dream. In this context, the goal of our project is:
– To show that children’s literature is not just for children and to enrich their imagination world by directing young people to read fairy tales
– To provide young people to be competent against environmental factors that restrict their creativity, rasp their entrepreneurial side, and discourage them to reach their ideals
– To encourage young people about entrepreneurial thinking and having a say in national, international platforms in this context, by expanding their imagination capacities, entrepreneurial thinking and having a say in national international platforms in this context.
– To help young people who have problems in career planning and finding a job, to help in this matter and to explain that unemployment is not fate
– By showing examples from the career world, provide participants to take lessons from these examples and get inspiration from them
– To initiate for young people to make out successful relationships in their social life and business life by realizing the dreams of the young people with concrete facts
– To help young people achieve concrete achievements in their career path by revealing the potentials of the youth with our activities in the project,
– To provide intercultural interaction
– To improve the creativity of young people by developing their cultural accumulation and expanding their dream worlds.
– To provide them to get rid of prejudiced, racist, discriminatory attitudes
– To enable Erasmus+ is to be disseminated and promoted.

Our objectives combined with Youth Exchanges:
Our project aims to improve the creativity of young people, to provide them with an entrepreneurial spirit, to help them to realize themselves in a cultural way, to make them gain different perspectives, to make the transition of young people into adulthood more easily, to make them easier to integrate into the labor market, to improve the competencies of young people and to strengthen the acceptance of knowledge and acceptance about diversity in society. These objectives are combined with the goals of youth exchanges.
