We’re now accepting applications for our Algeria – UK Youth Exchange

Call for Applications

SCEME has launched its free youth exchange programme, ‘Jusour’ (Bridges) and is now accepting applications from UK based young people (aged 15-30) who would like to take part.

Jusour is a challenging and inspiring programme of training workshops, cultural trips and visits to meet NGOs that brings together young people living in the UK and Algeria who have an interest in youth, national and international issues.

Within this training scheme, you will have the opportunity to share your experiences with students, activists and young volunteers of different backgrounds and cultures; discuss some of the key challenges and issues facing your communities and young people internationally – and identify solutions; and become part of an international network of people that address some of the major issues facing youth in Europe and the Mediterranean region. 

Over the course of 6 days you will have the opportunity to participate in a series of interactive workshops, and you can also join our group of fantastic Algerian youth to participate in a series of visits to London-based NGOs, cultural sites and to enjoy sharing London with a group of students and activists from Algeria. 

You will also receive a YouthPass Certificate (European Union recognition of your learning in the youth field) to certify your completion of the training programme and to allow you to showcase your learning and experiences. 

Over the course of the training, you will gain:

  • Knowledge and understanding of a range of challenges and issues impacting on youth in the UK and internationally – including education, employability, inequality, social and political participation.  
  • The opportunity to share experiences, ideas, best practice and identify solutions with other young people in the UK and Algeria.
  • Skills in Project Management and Fundraising.
  • First hand Project Management experience, and the opportunity to implement a social action project together with other participants.
  • New friends and supportive contacts who are committed to making a difference in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
  • You will also become part of a long-term facilitated international network, and be provided with the tools and resources you need to continue interacting with other participants and making an impact together.  

The training will take place in Central London this Easter break, from 25th-30th March. The training is free and local (Greater London) travel expenses will be covered, as will food.

Unfortunately, we are only able to accept applications from those aged 30 and under living in the Greater London area. Spaces are limited, so we advise that you apply early to avoid disappointment. 

If you have any questions (don’t be shy!) please feel free to contact the team on info@sce-me.org. If you would like to apply, then please send a quick email introducing yourself and your interest in the programme to the same address: info@sce-me.org.
