    Youth without Borders - Teenage Migration in Europe

    Our project was born starting from a more and more visible issue in all European countries and all over the world. Today many families and young people are moving across borders and the impact of migration on children and teenagers has obvious consequences over their lives. The aim of this project is to make our pupils ask some questions, try and find the best answers to them and choose the side of active involvement during this process. Thus this project helps pupils turn into responsible young European citizens, aware of the possible problems and benefits of migration. It offers the opportunity to raise awareness about the magnitude of migration with its positive and negative aspects and to break down xenophobia, prejudices and stereotypes through sharing their ideas, working together in international teams, enlarging their social, educational and cultural horizon when traveling abroad for the project meetings. Getting to know one another, realizing that there are not fundamental differences in their lifestyles and ideals, acknowledging the positive contributions each part has over the other one in this continuous exchange and melting process are the main benefits of the project. Through the methodological approach of learning by doing, pupils will be involved in specific activities, not only theoretical, but also practical, such as analyzing their own personal background or taking part in pro-active groups that facilitate a better understanding and acceptance of this phenomenon. Our pupils today are those European citizens of tomorrow that will use the educational experience acquired in this kind of projects that can become the very bricks of a European building, more tolerant and capable of using everybody’s potential for the general benefit.

  • Project website

    We decided from the very beginning to create a website for our project in order to give it a maximum visibility on the Internet. The website: www.youthimmigrant.org offers the perfect view of all our project activities. The school partner from Turkey was responsible with its design and uploading. It is well organised, having a clear map that guides you easily through the information and photos uploaded under the categories: Meetings, Documents of the project, Photo gallery and Contacts.
