“Peers to Peers” is a project created by EFM and financed by the EU and the Polish National Agency. Our youth workers come from a range of partner organizations in a number of European countries ; Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Spain, Poland, Portugal, Czech Republic, Romania, Italy and Turkey. Our volunteers work with volunteers from low income areas, leading EVS projects and organizing activities for Polish youth.  Our project was also carried out in collaboration with  EVS receiving organizations from the Kłodzko region whose aim it is to improve the lives of young people from the local towns ,cities and rural areas.

The training course was held between  10th -16th October 2016 in Poland, Polanica-Zdrój town, which was attended by a total of 27 international youth workers and 2 trainers from Poland and Portugal.

Our training course allowed the youth workers to:

Harmonize and create a standard system of support for volunteers with opportunities in EVS projects
Build and strengthen partnerships between sending, receiving, coordinating organizations and volunteers
Create a safe and friendly learning environment for young people with less opportunities
Know the methods of motivating volunteers from less-privileged
Learn about the practical  and logisitcal aspects of the project
Create a platform for the exchange of experiences
