Training Course

6-10 November 2018 | Youth Centre Vasatokka, Inari, Finland

“The Star of Europe” training course tackles each step of a youth exchange project and takes a step by step journey through youth participation and partnership by using visual material from the old Finnish game called “The Star of Africa”.

In “The Star of Europe” training module, the journey goes through Europe by searching of diamonds (important elements, principles) in youth exchange projects. We have created methods that help to understand the quality elements of youth exchange projects such as youth participation, equal partnership and learning design. There are reminders about the programme rules, good practices and pitfalls at every phase of the programme.

The aim of “The Star of Europe” is to get a comprehensive understanding of what a youth exchange project contains – from the idea, needs assessment of a project to the follow up activities.

More specifically, the main objectives are:
1) to understand the the whole logic of lifecycle of a youth exchange project;
2) to focus on participation and learning opportunities of the young people;
3) to pay extra attention to the equal partnership and encourage partners to plan, prepare, implement and report the project together

The profile of the participants:
Youth workers, Youth leaders who are interested in organising good quality youth exchange projects in the future. Participants should be over 18. Priority is given to participants who are already working with a group of young people interested in making an exchange project.

The training will be organised in a youth centre called Vasatokka in Inari, Finnish Lapland. It is a remote place high up north and we will not be visiting any towns or bigger cities. Instead, we will invest our time in getting to know each other and learning how we can make our youth exchange projects as participative as possible for young people.
