We believe we can make a positive difference both at local and international scale through involving youth organizations and strengthening cross-sectorial networking that will create new opportunities for work based learning mobility. “BEE” partnership is based on a cooperative working methodology that foster cross-fertilization through sharing practices and approaches, as well as by bridging together not only youth organizations, but also schools and employers in a global perspective.
6. READ (Reducing Social Exclusion Through A Creative Approach To Reading) Youth illiteracy is still rife in many countries around the world. According to statistics, globally, 124 million children and young adolescents are not in school or they drop out before completing the full course of basic education. Therefore the READ project and its partners share the mission to enhance the participation of youth and disadvantaged learners to society, promoting inclusive education and equality. This project is fully committed to constantly explore new youth work approaches and methodologies. The project draws its origin from the long engagement for the empowerment of young people through non-formal learning.
