Malta UNESCO Youth Association is looking for young people to participate in youth exchange from the 18 - 25 June, 2011, entitled Better Skills for Better Chances of Employment.
The youth exchange will take place in Karlovo, Bulgaria and aims to give useful skills to young people for their successful realisation in the labour market. The youth exchange is aimed at youth aged 18 to 25 years of age.
During this project, participants will be trained in good CV and motivation letter writing and will be presented with the best job interview strategy. On the other hand, the project also aims to foster youth creativity and entrepreneurship so that young people can develop and implement their own ideas. To achieve this, young people will be trained in lobbying and championship as well as project management.
The working methods used throughout this youth exchange will be non-formal and thus will include role games, case studies and also practical project development group sessions.
The project will include the participation of other young people from Italy, Spain, Estonia, Poland and Greece and thus this youth exchange will give the Maltese participants the opportunity to make new friends and allow the development of intercultural dialogue, tolerance and European citizenship among the participants.
The participants will also be recognised for their participation through the publishing of ‘My Youth Passport’.
The Maltese group will be made up of four young people and a leader. The flight and any transport costs will be 70% refunded while the accommodation and food will be fully covered by the host organisation. Interested participants should send an email to email@example.com by Friday 20th May, 2011.
