Capacity building: sharing best practice, promoting cooperation, and cultivating new practices in youth work (Key Action 2)
Schools can take part in capacity building projects which focus on transnational partnerships between organisations working with young people, that work together to identify ways to improve services delivered to young people. They can also involve organisations from the fields of education and training, as well as from other socio-economic sectors.
Youth Capacity-building projects aim to:
- Foster cooperation and exchanges in the field of youth between Programme Countries and Partner Countries from different regions of the world;
- Improve the quality and recognition of youth work, non-formal learning and volunteering in Partner Countries and enhance their synergies and complementarities with other education systems, the labour market and society;
- Foster the development, testing and launching of schemes and programmes of non-formal learning mobility at regional level (i.e. within and across regions of the world);
- Promote transnational non-formal learning mobility between Programme and Partner Countries, especially targeting young people with fewer opportunities, with a view to improving participants’ level of competences and fostering their active participation in society.
Capacity-building projects are transnational cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships between organisations active in the field of youth in Programme and Partner Countries. They can also involve organisations from the fields of education and training, as well as from other socio-economic sectors.
