It will bring together 28 participants from EU countries and in particular from: Bulgaria, France, Hungary, Romania, Macedonia, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Spain, Estonia, Latvia, Uk and Italy. The main purpose of this project is oriented to face the main hurdles that impede employability and education to youth disabled and implement activities according with the European policy framework, that provide equality of opportunity to all citi-zens.Within this context, Evenhanded opportunities for youth disabled (EOYD) wants to find a way to remove bar-riers to inclusion, sensibilize mainstream actions and implement project ideas addressed to boost employability and education for young people afflicted with disabilities.
The project wants to support youth workers and offer them theoretical and practical tools to work with and use when training young people.
Therefore, the main objectives of the project are following:
-to promote cooperation in the youth field to create better opportunities for inclusion of disabled youth;
-to promote a better understanding of the added value that diversity can bring to our societies;
-to create actions to help our societies to face the economic crises with fresh entrepreneurial ideas;
-to build up partnerships for projects that help disable youth to acquire competences for entering the labour mar-ket;
-to use the Erasmus Plus programme as a tool to support personal and professional development of young di-sabled;
-to get to know best practices to improve social inclusion and recognition of different abilities ;
-to promote intercultural learning and diversity.
The methodology and type of activities will be mainly related to non formal education, coaching, selfexpression, simulation games, peer to peer, learning by doing and experimental learning.
The important part is that participants are creating the outcome by themselves through their participation and involvement.
The activities foresee during the Contact Making Event are based on no formal education and attempts to share best practices between youth workers and create new partnership according to the project objects.
