Be Gentle, Explore Gender

The aim of the mobility of youth workers is to create new Erasmus + projects on gender issues. Project has the following aims:

– Define a common understanding what are the main issues connected to gender topic

in the application

Number of participants: 3 per country

Participant profile:
Participants will be motivated youth leaders and youth workers (18+), who want to find partners for new projects on gender and exchange good experiences with colleagues from other participating countries. They should be also working with young people (13-30 years old), as we want to have the projects about gender issues be directed to young people, as often youth are the group which faces the most gender based discrimination. Participants must be able to communicate in English.

Participation fee: 50 € per person (to be paid during the training course in cash).
Full board accommodation is provided and you could even get your travel reimbursed up to £245 / €330 (for UK participants).
