WSTCYS runs two distinct types of European Projects – Training Courses and Youth Exchanges. Working collaboratively with other organisations in the European context adds a depth and richness to the valuable work that is ongoing with young people throughout the network of WSTCYS Projects in Waterford.
The young people involved in the Youth Exchanges co-create, plan, operate and evaluate the Exchange weeks in partnership with the Youth Workers.
In the past 12 months, we have run the following Projects in conjunction with our European partners:
- ‘A Deeper Sense of Inclusion’ Training Course for European Youth Workers (from 10 countries across Europe including Belgium, Spain, Croatia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Estonia, Armenia, Jordan, Romania and Ireland)
- ‘Power Up!’ Youth Exchange where 30 young people spent a week in each of Estonia, Armenia and Ireland developing themselves and learning about other cultures.
