Do you like traveling? Would you like to try to live in a different country? That would be an exciting experience, wouldn’t it? But what if the local community will not accept you? What if you don’t find a job and friends just because you are from a different country?
The Youth Exchange “Reloaded” will show you how to give people a chance to show how they are, instead of judging them for where they are from or how they look. Let’s eliminate fears of different cultures or beliefs coming from unknown, misunderstandings, and judgments caused by stereotypes.
The project is focused on intercultural dialogue and communication of the local community with immigrants, raising awareness of a struggle against racial and other discriminatory prejudices, and enhancing skills and competencies of the young participants for work with migrants and refugees.
