FSL India has partnered with Solidarities Jeunesses– France and partners from Canada, Spain, Italy, Greece and Japan for the Erasmus+ project named “GoTeens”
The main aim of the project “GO with Teenagers Engagement and Empowerment through Networking” is to support the quality development of youth work by elaborating and formalising tools and improving competences to prepare, implement and evaluate international projects for teenagers. Furthermore, the project will strengthen the exchange among youth organisations and young people. It will also improve the recognition of international projects for teens, especially young people with fewer opportunities, both in programme and in partner countries, and of the value of international voluntary activities as a way to develop their autonomy, self-recognition, sense of democracy, engagement, intercultural skills and values.
The main objectives of the project are:
1. To reinforce the capacity of partner organisations to organise international projects for teenagers.
2. To provide youth workers with quality online and offline tools to lead international activities for teenagers.
3. To increase the number of international projects for teenagers and make them sustainable.
4. To foster the participation of teenagers, especially those with fewer opportunities in international youth activities
