If your organization or institution is planning its first international cooperation project, KA1 mobility projects are the recommended first step.
KA1 projects within the Erasmus+ programme provide opportunities for non-formal and informal learning for young people and youth workers from Serbia through international activities conducted by organizations active in the field of youth.
These projects are divided according to the target groups for which they are intended. If they are intended for young people aged 13-30, then they are youth exchanges that are conducted for the sake of personal and social development of young people. If they are intended for youth workers, then they are the mobility of youth workers for the purpose of their professional development.
Youth exchanges in the Erasmus+ programme enable young people aged 13-30, from Serbia and at least one other country, to meet, socialize, explore, learn and live together from 5 days to 21 days.
During the youth exchange, the participants go through a programme of non-formal education, which young people prepared together with the youth leaders. The exchange can include workshops, experiential exercises, debates, simulations, outdoor activities, various activities with the local community. The list and topics of possible activities are not defined in advance and depend on your creativity and the needs of young people. In addition to young people from different countries, the exchange also includes youth leaders, whose task is to provide support to young people during the learning process.
Through youth exchange, young people develop: their competencies, deal with topics of general social importance, discover new cultures, habits and lifestyles – mainly through peer learning, work on strengthening values such as solidarity, democracy, friendship, etc.
The mobility of youth workers in the Erasmus+ programme enables professional development of youth workers from Serbia and at least one other country. Professional development is in the form of non-formal education through participation in international activities such as: seminars, trainings, events for establishing contacts and cooperation, study visits, as well as internships, ie. monitoring the work of the organization from abroad, which is active in the field of youth work and other activities.
More detailed information on youth mobility projects can be found in the Erasmus+ Programme guide.
