Place: Ernst Sillem Hoeve, The Netherlands
The seminar will focus on youth participation within YMCA Europe and is intended for youth leaders (till age 30) interested in international youth work and cooperation.
YMCA of The Netherlands, together with YES group has successfully applied for a grant from the EU “Youth in Action” Programme to support the seminar. The content is prepared by YES board. Please see the draft programme below for more information.
National Movements, which signed a Partner form for the grant application can be supported by the grant by the reduce rates of the participation fee (€ 54/day) and partial travel reimbursement. These National Movements, with between brackets the number of eligible participants under 30 years of age are: Germany (4); Denmark (2); The Netherlands (6); England (4); Scotland (1); Finland (2); Estonia (1); Spain (1); Switzerland (2); Sweden (1); Czech Republic (1); Hungary (2); Malta (1); Iceland (1); Slovakia (1); Latvia (1); Romania (1); Turkey (1).
Unfortunately, only “Youth in Action” Programme countries were able to be partners for the grant this time. We are currently working on support measures for participants from other countries.
The above mentioned National Movements will benefit from a reduced rate for their youth participants. Participants to the YES seminar will pay:
