‘Young people are the co-creator of the present’, quoting one of my trainers, we as youth workers stand in the frontline to guide, coach and support our youngsters, listen to them and include them. In order to help them ‘Create’ programs for them, it is key to ‘Reflect’ on their needs first before releasing any form of further Education to Empower them. As a youth worker, I experienced this active training tour.’
Chulyta Jubitana, Caribbean Education and Cultural Foundation from St. Maarten
‘This was my first time experiencing an Erasmus+ program, which took place in Aruba for a duration of 9 days. I am so grateful that I was given the opportunity to attend this training course where I was able to meet and bond with people from different countries and nationalities. I gained insights into what Youth Work entails in different EU countries and learned about new, impactful tools that I myself can use with the youth within my organization.’
Chisela Vasquez Santos, Heart-Centered Leadership Foundation from Aruba
‘Erasmus+ is a great opportunity for young people to explore their possibilities and to think outside of the box. Meeting new cultures in a non-formal environment and becoming more aware of the different approaches to the challenges that we are all facing, empowers you to become a more active member in society. In a long turn, this could provide significant changes in everyday life of your local community. Taking part in activities in Erasmus+ program fosters you to see the bigger picture of the realities around you, but also brings a fresh look and new ways of dealing with situations that you see as obstacles in a particular moment in life. Accept the possibility and explore it-you won’t regret.’
