YAM LEARNING! – Young People’s Learning Processes After Mobility


Training Course

17-22 May 2016 | Braga, Portugal

This TC aims to help Youth workers to support youngsters after a mobility experience. The participants will become aware of their role; share experiences; learn to generate impact; discover new working methods and enlarge their support network.

“What is the role of the organizations after the youngsters return from an international experience (EVS, Youth exchanges, Training courses…)?” This is a key question in this training. We believe that not only the organizations have a role in the youngsters’ learning process after returning from a mobility experience, but they can build outstanding outcomes from it. For the youngsters, for their communities and for the organizations themselves.
Youth workers, youth leaders and mentors will be able to improve the support they give to youngsters in a mobility project during preparation, implementation and follow-up. In fact, we believe experiences will be stronger if youngsters become aware of it and are able to practise it. Youth workers are key supporters of that learning path, where youngsters assess their learning experiences and get support from the community.

This training was designed to address the following needs:

❏ More opportunities to young people to reflect and plan their mobility experiences
