🇪🇺 The first and very intense Transnational Project Meeting (TPM) within the framework of the Erasmus+ KA210 project "START the YOUTH ORG - Support the start of youth organisation". 🇪🇺


🔹 The project, which LKL coordinates, aims to train young animators (also called youth workers) and give them the concepts and tools needed to form an association and become part of a European network.


🔸 At the first meeting, delegations from Italy 🇮🇹, the Netherlands 🇳🇱 and Slovenia 🇸🇮 were invited by host Aidejoven in Spain 🇪🇸, in Madrid, to actively work and collaborate on the creation of an association that reflects the themes of inclusion and diversity.


The theme of inclusion and diversity was the guiding thread of the whole meeting and it was possible to get to know and visit two very active NGOs in the territory of the Madrid community:" Asociación Barró" and "Europa Joven Madrid"


🔹 In addition, we were introduced to Enisa's services and the opportunities offered to young Spaniards who want to create a new and innovative startup.


🔸 The photos are not enough to convey the emotions that all of us, youth workers and staff, have felt in working together, in learning some of the realities of youth association in Madrid and in creating new and precious friendships.


Testimonial - Veronica Bolzonella, The Netherlands


Start the Youth org was a pleasure. In line with the Erasmus+ mission, this KA2 project was a great opportunity to learn and grow together with a passionate group.

Attending presentations from organizations that are role models in the NGO and entrepreneurship field, exchanging ideas with fellow participants from different backgrounds, and participating in engaging activities, a great deal of expertise and innovation was brought to the table. The focus on diversity and inclusion pushed us all to consider the implications and impact of our organizations, and potentially of those we are yet to start.

The NGO Barrò was a wonderful inspiration, showing us the importance of prioritizing action and positive impact for marginalized communities.

A presentation by a representative of ENISA illustrated the potential opportunities and encouragement offered to startup, particularly to youth entrepreneurs.

The visit at Europa Joven introduced us to the wonderful world of the Solidarity Corps and its impactful opportunities both for volunteers and hosting organizations.

Finally the Hackathon was the chance for us participants to put everything we learnt into practice and come up with a plan to open our own organizations.

All of this while having fun, creating bonds, and exploring the beautiful city of Madrid.

Definitely a recommendable experience for all the young people looking for insight and inspiration to start their own path into new youth organizations


Next meeting: Maribor, Slovenia, where we will learn about environment & sustainability topics.
