What is an
Erasmus+
Youth Exchange?
Erasmus+ Youth Exchanges
allow groups of young people
from different countries to meet, live together and work on shared projects for short periods.

On a youth exchange, you can expect to participate in activities such as workshops, exercises, debates, role-plays, outdoor activities and more.

Participants' learning experiences are recognised through a Youthpass
This year we invite 13 - 17 years old young people
from Estonia, Finland, Spain and Poland
for a 6-day Erasmus+ youth exchange
during which we will explore
intergenerational dialogue,
storytelling and performing arts
Is it for you?
Storytelling & Performing Arts
We will have a chance to explore a bit of everything while creating a show: storytelling, drama, dance, music, singing, backstage, stage decorations and event production.
Intergenerational Dialogue
We will have a chance to find out interesting facts about different generations, shape this facts into stories and share them through varied forms of arts.
Non-formal education
Prepare your ideas for activities, workshops, sessions, recipes, and ask your team leaders to help you organise it all, this is what we call a non-formal education.
Outdoor activities
Did we tell you how we love fresh air and outdoor activities?
That's why we stay in the beautiful recreational centre in the Estonian forest of Jõulumäe near Pärnu.

How we
live together during a youth exchange
Please read
the guidelines
that we will follow
during a youth exchange
in order to make everyone feel good:
Everyone takes part

Participants are encouraged to take the maximum out of the sessions during the project; action is needed!

Give & Get

Participants are encouraged to share knowledge, experience, organise the activities, and welcome the actions of others positively.

Use all you see

Participants are encouraged to use all the available materials, incl. recycling items to create something new and to minimise the environmental footprint.

Move you body

Some time will be dedicated to active leisure time as we believe that you can
get the energy "to change your world"
only by moving yourself.

Express yourself

Participants are encouraged to raise their voices through the different ways of creative expression, tell stories, and welcome the experience of the other.
There is no wrong or right opinion!

No smoking or drinking

The youth exchange is smoke and drink-free, the camp will create an atmosphere that promotes health, well-being, and positive experiences for all participants.

Safety first

Our venue is located in the nature, we will look after each other to support and make everyone feel good and safe.

Respect each of all

We believe that only in a calm and cheerful environment can we build a healthy and happy lifestyle base. And we think to respect others means to let them be themselves. Respect also means following the guidelines we created for the group's well-being.

Celebrate

All together, we will celebrate
individual and group achievements.
We will do it through different kind of reflection and evaluation methods
by the end of each day.
