The increasing influx of asylum seekers to European countries, has made more important than ever to take action in increasing the possibility of their integration within the society. The main objective of this project is to facilitate integration of migrants and refugees through the participation in Erasmus+ programs and establishing new strategies to enhance the communication between young people from different cultures and ethnic groups.
The purpose of SCAYP is to increase the communication through trust building between youth workers and young refugees (meaning asylum seekers and migrants as well), thanks to the introduction of the new working methodology, in order to raise the participation of young migrants and refugees in Erasmus+ exchange programs. The aim is to write a handbook that’ll be shared as good practices through Salto Youth.
- Communications skills;
- Training to tackle problems;
- Network with other youth associations to share best practices;
- Create tailored programs to build trust with the help of other European partners.
- Help other organizations create common protocols for all volunteers
We had the kick-off meeting in Ioannina in Greece at the beginning of October where we explored different ways and approaches for the handbook and our thoughts on the matter. We visited Katsikas refugees camp where 400 people live in approx. 95 tents and we also went to visit a german initiative next to the camp, that you need to check out ! We were amazed and inspired by their work.
