What's a youth exchange?
Youth exchanges bring together groups of young people from two or more countries, providing them with an opportunity to discuss and confront various themes while learning about each others' countries and cultures; they help you learn new skills and improve your CV. It's also free of charge for you, as it is supported by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union
Együttható is a youth NGO in Hungary working with and for young people since 2010. We involve young people living with disability in our projects since 2012, because it is connected with our vison; a society where communities provides equal opportunities for all young people.
We organized the first edition of the award-winning Breaking Stereotypes youth exchange in 2017.
Six group of young people living with and without disability will learn together how to become active members of their community and society and act for social inclusion. We will discuss social issues, work with how these influence us and how can we take action.
The exchange is going to be organized at Gánt, Hungary, between the 29th of April and 7th of May.
Are you from Spain, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Poland or Hungary?
We'll plan and implement a public event together at the end of the exchange to promote inclusion and inform the society about disabilities.
Non-formal learning methods will be used all through the project. After the exchange in Hungary, you will use what you learnt and organise a local event at home to promote inclusion.
You will learn about
Identifying and expressing your own needs and the needs of your community
Efficient interpersonal and public communication
Social activism and advocacy
Steps of implementing a project/event about social inclusion
The program is focused on self-knowledge, social roles, active participation, active citizenship, volunteering and independent living and through these topics we develop social competences, tolerance, sensivity, assertivity, communication skills and tools, time-, stress-, and project management knowledge.
Our association provides barrier-free environment and professional personal assistance during the entire duration of the program.
The first edition of our youth exchange was awarded by Eurodesk in 2017
