Call for participants for Youth Exchange- „World of Disabled”

CYA Krik issues a call for 7 participants and one leader for a youth exchange in Velika, Bigany.


Project description:

Our project called „The world of disabled” serves the sensitization of young people from 4 countries. The world of the disadvantaged, especially the disabled people (blind and partially sighted, wheelchair, autistic, etc.) is unknown, strange to the young people and therefore they carry prejudices against these people. Adiaphorism and disinterest are getting bigger among young people, which needs to be changed. We want to pass on the high level of tolerance and empathy during the program. The young people are sensitized with the introduction to the world of injured people. The sensitization takes place through practical knowledge, by integrating into the lives and roles of injured people. Diversity of role and situational exercises, knowledge expansion and competence development take place. A 10-day youth exchange (including the travelling days) will be implemented in Velika Begany. In the program, 8 young people and their group leaders from each country are involved, as well as a main facilitator who leads the program, altogether 37 people. The majority of the young people are disadvantaged, but non-disadvantaged participants also participate in favour of the promotion of cooperation and adaptation. During the exchange program we want to implement such activities that increase the knowledge of young people through new methods that are innovative for young people. Our aim is to gain knowledge through experience, which we achieve through practicalwork, role and situational exercises, but also the use of drama pedagogy and art pedagogy get a place. During the exchange, the young people get acquainted with the world of injured people, connecting to which they will make a play and posters. They will present these to the local community on the last day. We encourage the young people all the time to be active. In order to get to know the culture of other nations, we organize national nights. We close each day with evaluation.

Participants should prepare for the exchange at home. The facilitator will contact the contact persons at each partner organization and write the tasks participants should prepare with.
