ABOUT THE PROJECT

“Change Places | Change Lives” is aiming to develop youth workers/leaders competences in the field of migration to give them proper tools and methods to help young people to adapt to the situation of high migration level in all its aspects.

Solidarity, tolerance and integration are fundamental values that TC intends to promote. Activities will focus on the principles of intercultural dialogue and social inclusion, from both, European and global levels. The challenges of migration, such as inclusion and integration of migrants, require the development of solidarity and tolerance, and the TC aims to equip participants with tools to spread these values among young people, to contribute to the promotion of a more open and informed
a society that offers the same opportunities to everyone.

WORKING METHODS

It will be a training course, but it’s not like the ones where you can sit back and relax. We will use active methods, based on experimental learning, in combination with practical theory. This means that you will work in workshops, with role-plays and exchange the experiences you have and plan concrete future projects.

TO GOOD TO BE TRUE?

Even we are offering participation in this project “for free” it doesn’t mean it is free. As an organization, we are covering project administration costs and our young volunteers are working hard, investing their energy, knowledge and time to make this opportunity possible. Why? Because we are in love with mobility and striving to open even more international opportunities for young people and youth workers in Croatia and wider who invest time in self-development and make positive changes in their environments.
