Project description:

‘Explore Your Power, Step Into The Future!’ is an Erasmus+ Program KA1 Youth Exchange project promoted by informal youth group called Aksaray Youth Volunteers in Aksaray / TURKEY. The project is designed for young people to take part in a Youth Exchange project and raise awareness of social skills among young people with an innovative perspective on reducing youth unemployment, which is the main development target of the EU.

As an Erasmus+ Youth Exchange project, our topic is related to Youth Employment and Unemployment. Via project activities we want to raise awareness among young people to discover their potential. We aim our participants to learn how to apply for a job, how to be a good worker, how to find a job according to their skills. We will organize visits to the organizations which are responsible for young people to be employed. Thanks to group works the participants will improve their personal skills and their creativity.

For dissemination, local press will be invited to the project and information about what Erasmus+ will be given. In addition, local authorities will be visited and asked for their supports for our project topic.

There will be indoor and outdoor activities in our project. We will do workshops, group-works, pair-works and we will use non formal education techniques. Thus, all the participants will be active and will enjoy the project activities. There will be cultural nights to get to know the different cultures and different people.

All project activities are prepared after the negotiations with our project partners. Duties and responsibilities of partner organizations and participants are decided, too. Participants are going to have meetings in their countries with their group leaders and will come to project venue with all the information and preparations.

Also, every organization will do preparations to present their country and culture. Within this scope, there will be presentations,  dances, contests and also held cultural events. Also, thanks to the city tour, participants are going to get information about our country and city. They also will be informed about Erasmus+, National Agency and Youthpass.

The Project’s long-term outcomes are to help young young people to be employed according to their skills. New project ideas, long term friendships and turning participants into a culture and tourism ambassadors are the other aims. We will organize workshops, lectures, group-works, pair-works and social activities besides indoor and outdoor activities.
