Following the project, here we collected all the results of the project. We collected articles, posts on social media and other products that some of the partners developed at the end of the mobility.

Youth Workers For Youth Employability – Contact Making Event has made me gain an impeccable perspective on how social organizations and NGOs should work and how to improve the current opportunities and abilities to keep them going. It also shed light on the idea that effectiveness comes with connecting and working together. Sharing and exchanging ideas with partners that have worked for so many different social projects before was an amazing experience that taught me so much.
Hearing stories from them was not only very efficient but also very inspiring. Working in international teams means everyone has something different to add, and that’s what makes the meeting very special and unique. Each country has a different perspective, different experiences and different ways of seeing things.
Focusing on improving ideas on youth employment and entrepreneurship also carried such big importance since it is a big issue in many countries including Turkey. It needs innovative ideas and projects to be able to be solved. Hearing those ideas from the participants was very enlightening and inspirational.
I overall gained so much more than I had expected at the beginning of the project. It was a very beneficial project that gave birth to many great ideas in all participants’ minds. Building connections and networking with international partners was also an incredible experience and brought so much to me. Everyone worked and contributed a lot to the projects and activities that we carried out. It was an incredible experience that built so many connections and ideas and I was so happy and proud to be a part of it.

Non-formal education – if used well – can be an efficient tool and a welcoming environment for youngsters with fewer opportunities, who face geographical, social or financial obstacles. However, it can be challenging to reach and engage these communities and bridge the gap between the present needs and the resources available. Recognizing this problem, YouNet has organised an international contact making event, inviting organizations working in this field from 11 countries. Together with Emma Takács we were representing the Hungarian partner, Youth Bridges Budapest, that is involved in sending volunteers abroad, long-term international partnerships and making youth mobility widely available. Along with presenting the organisation’s values and goals in a concise and intriguing way we were focusing on learning as much as possible from the best practices of other nationalities. I was particularly interested in hearing about the future and the representation of youth in rural areas and discussing my experience with experts of the subject. Conversations on the resistance that naturally occurs in older generations and vulnerable groups against non-formal education and on overcoming them has made me more conscious towards a group’s needs as a facilitator. I am grateful to have met so many determined and inspiring youth workers and I hope that the synergy we experienced will blossom into successful collaborations in the future!
