The YOUrope needs YOU! is a project dedicated to empower High School students. The chance to be active citizens, to gain satisfaction after projects well-done, beauty of being volunteer and contribute to the society – we all have experienced it. Now we want to share it with High School students, by means of interactive workshops. The aim of the workshops is to increase the knowledge of High School students about Europe, European values, European matters, then motivate them to take action to do something for their schools, their societies and keep them informed about all possibilities which Europe can offer them.
YOUrope needs YOU! Results Booklet
”Empowered high school students all over Europe” – this is the main aim of YOUrope needs YOU! Through workshop sessions at high schools conducted by university students from different NGOs active in youth work, the project intends to raise awareness on current European matters, show the practical opportunities Europe offers, and encourage young people to seize these opportunities. The use of interactive non-formal education methods will allow the participating high school students to improve their understanding of common European values and perspectives. The sessions are organised by students for students – a great basis for sharing idealism and the conviction to act and experience Europe.
