YOUTH IN PROGRESS AND PARTNERSHIP FOR EQUALITY AND EXCHANGE

Global Link is involved in a new digital storytelling project with young people from five countries.

The Youth in Progress and Partnership for Equality and Exchange (YIPPEE) project is funded under the Erasmus+ Capacity Building Program, which aims to explore opportunities for access to personalised training services for young people and reduce inequalities.

Specifically, the project will use digital storytelling to develop young people’s self-awareness and abilities, promote active participation in social and cultural life and increase employability.

The project aims to:

  • offer mobility opportunities for young people to develop professional skills;
  • promote a “cascading” effect by multiplying the impact on young people in Europe and Benin;
  • strengthen the network of contacts at international, European and local levels;
  • improve counselling services for work and guidance;
  • enhance non-formal education through the use of digital storytelling.

 

Project beneficiaries are NGOs and youth organisations (18-30 years), trainers, educational organisations and European networks and policymakers at all levels from 4 European countries (Hungary, Romania, Italy and UK) and one extra-European country (Benin).

Project activities include two training courses, the creation of participants’ digital stories, the production of digital storytelling guidelines, and a platform dedicated to digital storytelling with materials and open source documents available online.

Project partners: Anthropolis Antropologiai Kozhasznu Egyesulet (Hungary), Asociatia de Tineri Din Ardeal (Romania), Centre Régional de Recherche et d’Education pour un Développement (Benin), Melting Pro (Italy) and Global Link Lancaster Ltd (UK).
