EYF continue visits to projects

Description of Event

The European Youth Foundation visited an International Activity organised by Alliance of European Voluntary Service Organisations (ALLIANCE) which is part of their 2020 work plan "Value-based approach in international voluntary service projects as a tool for increasing youth participation and inclusiveness of young people".

Twenty youth trainers from different NGOs met on 17-22 February in the suburb of Berlin (Germany) for a long-term training course to build their capacities and expertise as International Volunteer Service (IVS) workcamp leaders. IVS values were recalled during the training and the participants had the opportunity to review the workcamp leader’s role and competence when implementing a project. They were also invited to brainstorm on how to define an NGO mission and values. The participants will be involved in the next step of the ALLIANCE work plan which is a training session in Hungary focusing on work with specific target groups in IVS projects: youth from minority groups, refugees, people in difficult situations or facing discrimination, etc.
