The Cyprus Youth Clubs Organisation- KOKEN through its European partnerships gave the opportunity to 2 youth workers, Eleni and Spyros to participate at the Training Course “Let’s go 4 Games” that took place on 5-13 March 2018 in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands.
Here you may find more about their experience:
“Let’s Go 4 Games!’ was an Erasmus+ Project in which 29 youth workers from 14 European countries have participated and it was organised by WOW Go Amsterdam in Uitdam, in Netherlands. The general idea of this project was to make a positive contribution to the quality of youth work (by developing the competences of youth workers) in order to use games as an effective tool for non-formal education, inclusion and promotion of changes in society as well as an effective tool for personal and social development.
Also, this exchange program-short placement was a great chance to see how living in Netherlands feels and learnt some things about the unique culture of this country and some Dutch. We met a lot of people and we created new friendships and partnerships. We felt like a big multicultural family. In addition, the behavior of our instructors (Antonio & Ieva) was impeccable. They did their best and we have no regretted it at all.
Overall, it was an amazing programme and I will never forget it!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 I definitely recommend it. And of course, I would love to participate again in this kind of projects!
Thank you very much Cyprus Youth Clubs Organisation for everything!!!”
“Over the last ten days, I have been participating in a training course in the Netherlands under the umbrella of Erasmus+ project. It was based on non-formal education method and its subject was “Let’s go for games”. The project basically aimed at introducing games and interactive activities in education by youth workers; in order to develop values such as empathy, trust, respect, and understanding. In addition, it aimed at promoting inclusion in our societies.
I had the chance to meet people from other countries, get to know their culture, languages, and stories. I experienced life in The Netherlands through the hospitality of the local organization and through the exploration of the cities.
It was such an amazing experience! I would love to participate again in this kind of projects! I recommend everyone to get involved in this kind of exchanges/projects.
Thank you for the opportunity and entrust!”
