Erasmus+ Call For Participants!
We are looking for 2 participants to take part in the first Learning, teaching & training activity for the project “Adopt Your Heritage”.
The 1-week activity will take place in Cefalu (Sicily) from the 24th – 30th June 2019 & will be hosted by our partner “IISS Jacopo del Duca – Diego Bianca Amato”.
The project brings together 6 organisations from the UK, Bulgaria, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Turkey to help young people become more aware of their cultural prosperity, their identity and characteristics, embedding this knowledge into future generations.
The partners in this project have expressed a need to promote cultural heritage not just in their schools but at a local, regional and national level through the Erasmus+ programme. By creating a wider network of teachers, youth workers and young people, the project will further the participants understanding of their own heritage, while at the same time, shaping and forging a common European identity through the realisation of the similarities between neighbouring countries helping them to embrace their cultural differences.
The project aims to raise awareness about the cultural prosperity in their communities and in those of their peers. Young people will develop new skills such as social responsibility, communication, problem-solving, initiative, creativity, planning, teamwork, flexibility, tolerance and acceptance towards different cultures.
As this project is funded by the Erasmus+ programme, participants will be reimbursed for the cost of travel. Food & accommodation will also be provided for the full duration of the LTTA.
For this call for participants, we would especially encourage participants with fewer opportunities, particularly the following:
- Participants aged 18 – 24 years old
- Youth Workers
- Participants with disabilities
- Participants from a disadvantaged background
- Participants with social and economic obstacles
- Participants with geographical obstacles
If you are based in the UK or from one of the following partner countries (Turkey, Portugal, Spain, Bulgaria & Italy) and would like to participate in this or any of our projects, click below and sign up.
