It's Our Project so
We'll Proj-A-Thon it
This Erasmus+ youth exchange has been designed to empower young people to play an active role in the writing of projects, project management and event management and therefore the skills that they gain will support their future employment goals as many occupations now work on the basis of project management and having this skill set will improve employability.
Participation will improve the level of key competencies and skills of the young people and youth workers attending, as well as promoting active participation in intercultural dialogue, social inclusion and solidarity.
The tangible results of the project will be a project application made to the Spanish National Agency in Round three 2018. This project will be written in the forum of a Proj-a-Thon.
A PROJ-A-THON is a sprint-like event in which young people, youth workers, educators and others involved in youth projects, including graphic designers, interface designers, project managers, and others, including subject-matter-experts, collaborate intensively on the writing and application of a project.
This is the first time that this has been attempted and we see this as an opportunity to test new and innovative ways to produce high quality projects and for young people to be fully involved in the process.
The goal of our PROJ-A-THON is to create a high quality project. The PROJ-A-THON will have a specific focus, which will be decided democratically in the weeks coming up to the mobility and will require research and information gathering by the young people and professionals involved.
