International Youth Exchange
“YES-Youth Equality Support”
Léléktér Foundation was accredited as an EVS delegating and hosting organization in October, 2014. Since then, the Foundation has participated in and coordinated many successful youth exchanges in the European Union.
In this project the partners are from Turkey, Italy, Lithuania, Greece, France, Bulgaria, Sweden and Spain possess significant experience in youth exchange – many joint projects were successfully implemented. Due to this success, we have met young people who are interested in participating in intercultural learning opportunities. Therefore, Léléktér Foundation and the above mentioned partners have developed „YES-Youth Equality Support” project, a youth exchange in Hungary.
In the preparation process the needs and interests of the youth have been identified. These are in the realm of the various art forms and other creative activities. To ensure the exceptional quality of the program, more organizations focus on the situation of the migrants and refugees.
All together there are 9 organizations involved in the project (8 partners + the Léléktér Foundation). Our Foundation also delegates 2 volunteers to help with the technical issues, administration and such.
In order to make the communication system easier there will be a Facebook group for the leaders and all the participants.
Through the refugee and migrant situation and non-formal education the participants will be supported in their development of becoming conscious consumers, and active citizens of the European Union.
“YES-Youth Equality Support” project of Léléktér Foundation helps younger people to learn about and get involved in different opportunities offered by the European Union. On international level the project builds a well-functioning network amongst the 8 partner organizations, and offers opportunities for other countries to join this network in order to implement further successful projects.
The main goals of the project are to generate international co-operation via non-formal education and art workshops, exchange experience, to foster the system of youth policy, to strengthen social inclusion of the youth and to encourage them to take more active participation in the European democracy.
Short-term goals of the project are to build new international networks, to propagate the Erasmus+ Programs, and to provide development of competencies of the participants’ varied skills. The program also aims to generate opportunities to learn and adapt good-practices, to improve language skills of the young. Also, it helps establish new techniques in order to avoid racism, discrimination and hate speech related to the migrants and refugees and develop self-knowledge of the participants and to foster their social responsibility.
The long term goal of this project is to increase solidarity, tolerance and social inclusion and to support and mobilize young people on their road of becoming active European citizens.
Our youth exchange program includes all the priorities, goals and mission of the Erasmus+ Programs.
Other important goals are to strengthen the cooperation, partnership between the participants and to provide the development of their competencies. We support them to achieve their personal goals, motivate them to get involved in self and community development activities by using their creativity and their gained experience. The impact of the project is that with the help of the new experience, knowledge they gained, they will be able to make positive changes.
