We are looking for 5 participants between 17 to 23 years old to participate in a Youth Exchange in Slovakia this summer, for 11 days.
– Aim is to encourage young people, our participants, to actively participate in public life at local, national and European level. Specifically we want to motivate them to participate in elections (local, national and European), to do research before voting, to vote responsibly and also to participate in public life not only during elections. We want to motive them to be responsible young citizens.
– We will achieve this with week long simulation of democratic society, where participants can vote, candidate for elections, protest, call for referendum and experience intensive democratic experience.
We also need a group leader, between 18 and 30 years old and who should be available to take part in an advance planning visit with the other group leaders in May/June.
Significant part of the project is in hands of the leaders. Together we have to prepare constitution of our project, which will serve as board of rules. We have to agree upon dates. Leaders will take leading positions in our simulation at the begging.
It is crucial that leaders will attend both APV and YE.
