Project Summary

World Exchange 2 is the second edition of World Exchange, a Capacity Building in the Field of Youth project funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission. The idea of the project is to capacitate NGOs to plan, implement and evaluate youth exchanges using the European model for youth from different countries and backgrounds.Each organisation had the opportunity to receive training for 2 staff members (or future staff members) who currently do not have skills related to Youth Exchanges (1 Project Manager, 1 Facilitator/Group Leader). The skills acquired can also be useful for managing large groups of volunteers and adding a learning component to the volunteer projects.Each partner had the opportunity to put in practice the skills acquired during the project lifetime by hosting a mobility activity (either training, youth exchange or evaluation seminar) and sending participants to Youth Exchanges.The main aims of the project are to create the foundations for a future Youth Exchange Programme in Asia, through:- Increasing the capacities of Organisations in Partner Countries in the field of NFL- Offering the Partner Countries to host a YE to promote at a local levelOther objectives are:- Enhance the management and internationalisation of youth organisations in Partner Countries through Training and Hosting Youth Exchanges- Develop tools and methods for the socio-professional development of youth workers and trainers- Promote cooperation, networking and peer-learning activities fostering efficient management, internationalisation and leadership of youth work organisations- Increase the awareness of importance of NFL opportunities for local youth amongst the partner organisations and in their networks- Provide the partner organizations and staff with the methodologies and practical tools to carry out high quality YEs.
