MVNGO is a partner organization in the Erasmus Plus KA1 Youth project “Masters of Excellence”, involving 2 Youth Exchange involving a total 42 young people from 5 different partner countries: Denmark (Champions Factory Denmark), Italy (Mine Vaganti NGO), Poland (Youth of Europe), Bulgaria (Champions Factory Sports Club) and Turkey (Youth Art Research and Training Association). The project is coordinated by the Danish organization Champions Factory Denmark.
The first Youth Exchange of the project will take place in Porto Conte (Sardinia) between 15 and 25 July 2017.
The main objective of this two-stage project is to manage a platform and elaborate a process, whereby young people are empowered, and later on will be able to empower others in their communities, through exchange of ideas, brainstorming, techniques, methods, skills and tools that promote entrepreneurship and start-up innovative spirit among young peoples’ communities, including young people with fewer opportunities.
Project Youth Exchange will be based on non-formal learning methods and principles, inter-cultural dialogue and communication including group discussions, interactive presentations, participant’s lead workshops, team work, etc.
The Youthpass certification tool will be used throughout the project to help young people reﬂect regularly on their personal learning journeys and become more aware of their own learning. The methodology of the project will stimulate active participation and sense of initiative as well as involvement of the learners. It aims to create a learning space with better self-awareness and awareness of the needs and goals of the groups of young people they work with to enhance the results of the learning process and give birth to high quality projects led by the participants in the future.
