Léargas are supporting Irish youth workers and leaders to attend some upcoming training courses on various subjects. Successful selected participants are requested to pay a €50 participation fee. All flights, accommodation and training course elements are funded by the participating National Agencies. ‘POWER TO YOU(th)!‘ takes place from 30 October to 4 November in Luxembourg. This training course aims to boost and expand the capacity of youth workers/leaders in implementing Erasmus+ projects and to share their skills in empowerment, with the aspiration of increasing the employability of young people. Applications are online here. Deadline 5 September.
This course would be useful to youth leaders who want to help children take part in Erasmus+ programmes, as it will provide a greater understanding of how they work, thus increasing the chances of acceptance for applicants. Erasmus+ programmes that can be greatly beneficial to the Youth Orchestra communities are the ‘Youth Exchange’ projects, of which you can find more information here.
