Description of the project
The project called PRoMOTE: New Perspectives Through Mobility and Exchange is coordinated by Merseyside Expanding Horizons (MEH) in the UK and involves the exchange of 2 youth workers from the UK and Italy. Centro Sviluppo Creativo Danilo Dolci (CSC) is working in partnership with MEH to support the bilateral exchange. For 6 months a youth worker from MEH in Liverpool has worked in Palermo for CSC Danilo Dolci and MEH has hosted a youth worker from CSC in Liverpool. Both youth workers will work at local and European level in the delivery of projects within the youth field. The placements in the UK and Italy has provided the opportunity for both youth workers to experience a new intercultural experience while gaining new skills and competences in youth work.
