Nowadays, one of the most concerning phenomenon that threaten young people harmonious growth is bullying which affects more and more young people and includes physical violence, threats, teasing, social exclusion and other psychological violence.

• Recent studies suggest that bullying in adolescence can have worse long-term effects on young adult‘s mental health than being subject to maltreatment during childhood. Violence in schools and bullying is one of the strategic priorities of The Council of Europe Strategy on the Rights of the Child. All over Europe 3 children/teens out of 10 are bullied. Bullying consequences can be devastating on young people future, 44,5% bullied young people end education at secondary level, 9,2% skip school 3-4 days in two weeks, 42,4%feel outsider, 63,9% are anxious at test and exams. On long term all consequences lead to social isolation, school leaving, depression and suicide thoughts, even to suicide.

• This is the context that lead to the project „Stop Bullying”. The aim of our project is to empower young people with human rights, democracy and active citizenship education to act against bullying from both roles, victims and witness and to reduce this phenomenon.

SUMMARY OF THE PROJECT:

The participant organizations are from Lithuania, Latvia, Bulgaria and Poland. Seeing the need of intercultural exchanges and dialogue among youngsters coming from these countries, project partners designed the proposed project together.
The main objectives of the project are:
• to create intercultural environment and enhance tolerance and empathy, to show that cultural differences are an advantage rather than a disadvantage.
• to accept cultural differences and enhance understanding of each other’s culture.

 

The project will attain manifold aims such as: promotion of intercultural exchanges and diversity, values of democracy, tolerance and respect of human rights. We plan to steer debates about the most pressing social issues and the role of youth in addressing intercultural learning and social inclusion of people with fewer opportunities. Moreover, the initiative will give new ideas on how youngsters can engage more actively in social life.

 

 

 

RESULTS OF THE YOUTH EXCHANGE:

Participants will have wider perspectives on youth activism and exchange understanding of their role in intercultural society. By doing so, we will have more ideas to suggest to local stakeholders regarding the development of particular issues addressed during the project, which will have added value not only for the community where the exchange is held, but for the communities where participants come from too. Besides, we will improve understanding on how to establish intercultural relations, debate and discuss ambivalent issues in an international setting.
Meantime, we will improve soft skills such as communication, self-performance and presentation skills. The project gives equal opportunities to every young person to participate in the action with special emphasis on the needs of youth with fewer opportunities. The composition of the participants will be diverse as they will come from very distinct cultural, national, ethnic and religious backgrounds.

 

 

METHODOLOGY:

Various methods such as icebreaker games, group and individual work, brainstorming sessions, sticker, power and name games are included in daily agenda. During these activities, we enhance multiple skills and approaches. Additionally, reflection sessions will be used to track record on development and exchange ideas on the project and how it can be improved.

 

 

PROFILE OF PARTICIPANTS:

The expected background of participants is youth 18 to 30 years old with interest in learning about other cultures. Younger participants will be also welcomed, but not let than 16 years old.

 

Each team will be composed of 9 participants and 2 Group Leaders (in total 44 participants). The Leaders of the national groups must have experience in being a leader in youth exchanges or youth work.

 

Participants should be able to communicate on English language at the sufficient level (you will need to communicate a lot in English language during the sessions and do presentations during the mobility, so it is not possible to participate with zero knowledge of English language).

 

We expect that all participants will take part in all activities. In the case of unauthorized absence from activities and workshops we will not reimburse your travel costs and you are at risk of being sent home.
