Within this programme, SCEME has recently completed an international exchange for young people living in the UK and Algeria. While the youth have returned home, their work continues. Throughout the course of the week the group created some absolutely fantastic social action projects that they would like to implement in their own communities.
You can learn more about the project, see what the participants think of it, and follow their progress as they implement their projects by following their blog www.jusour-bridges.blogspot.co.uk
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:
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.
