“Be The Change” is going to be a youth exchange organized in Garlstedt (Osterholz-Scharmbeck) in Germany which will include 36 young people and 7 group leaders from 6 different countries: Spain, Croatia, Lithuania, Greece, Turkey and Germany.
Maybe you already have an amazing idea how to change your local community? Maybe you do not know where to start? How to get the funding, make the connections with like minded people, and how to write the project application? In this project, you will learn about using the European Solidarity Corps programme, particularly Solidarity Projects: These small grants allow you and your group of friends to implement small scale projects in your community!
The main objective of the project is therefore to promote youth activism and the spirit of solidarity among youth in Europe. Other objectives include:
The project will take place in our youth center/group house in Garlstedt (Osterholz- Scharmbeck), close to the city of Bremen, Germany. The accommodation will be simple. Participants will be sharing rooms with 4-6 people from same gender but with different nationalities. Some of the rooms are with private and some with shared bathrooms.
All costs for food and accommodation are covered by the Erasmus+ programme. Travel costs will be reimbursed up to 180€. We charge a 40€ participation fee.
You are responsible to buy your own travel tickets according to the rules stipulated by the hosting organization of the project. Your costs will be reimbursed after the end of the project if you provide all original receipts and boarding passes. This process may take 1 month. If you are experiencing a time of financial hardship and cannot afford to pay your travel costs in advance, contact us and we can find a solution together.
