Project Summary

The project is co-funded through the programme Erasmus+, KA1 – Mobility of Youth Workers and consists of two activities, a Contact Making Event hosted by InterCollege in Denmark and a Training Course hosted by INTERBILDUNG e.V in Germany.


The project seeks to address the need for youth organisations to be always evolving and pushing the limits of value creation through innovative and quality projects. In order to maximise the impact and outcomes from Erasmus+ projects, the partners need to be creative, think multilaterally and be ambitious with their proposals. They need to create learning opportunities that take participants outside their daily realm to effectively develop their soft skills through transnational youth projects.

The aim of the project is, thus, to foster value creation in transnational youth projects through promoting the entrepreneurial thinking and innovative actions of youth workers.

Summary of the Activity

The activity addresses the need of ensuring that the youth workers from the partner organisations who are responsible for project management and overviewing and delivering youth work activities have the right tools and competencies to deliver on the visions of ambitious projects. Youth workers who are managing transnational youth projects have to juggle with the ground level, day to day practical management of activities whilst at the same time, steering the activity to ensure that it meets the needs of the beneficiaries and the visions of the donor.

The main headlines of the training course are:

1. EU’s visions with the programme Erasmus+

2.  Actions under Erasmus+ programme

3. Project Management and Project Management Standards (VAP)

4. Planning and Decision making in Project Management

5. Core Values in Mobility Projects

6. Problem Analysis and Objective Tree

7. Project Development in groups

The project gathers 18 partner organisations from 15 countries (Germany, Denmark, Hungary, Lithuania, Slovakia, Czech Republic, North Macedonia, Italy, Romania, Turkey, Estonia, Croatia, Spain, Poland, and Bulgaria), amongst which 11 are NGOs, five are social enterprises and two are local/regional public bodies in youth work and national education.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO TRAVEL DUE TO COVID-19?

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.
