About "Youth BCN"

Youth BCN is an accredited organisation for Erasmus+ based in Barcelona, Spain. The organisation works as an incubator for young entrepreneurs and a co-working space. Also it provides advisory and consultancy services regarding European funds and entrepreneurship activities. Furthermore, they develop their local youth work in the district of Sant Martí by implementing Erasmus+ and ESC projects.

The organisation has a big experience with Erasmus+ projects such as youth exchanges for young people and training courses for youth workers. During these years they have gathered enough knowledge in the non-formal education sector to train new youth workers, volunteers, facilitators, and trainers who are starting to take the first steps in this field. 

About the training 

"Youth Exchanges for Youth 2" aims to increase the professional competencies of youth workers and enable them to exchange the best practices and promote cooperation and innovation in the field of youth work across Europe.  

This training course will focus on project design and guide you through every stage of the project cycle, from generating ideas to evaluation. It will cover essential areas such as assessing needs, setting goals, understanding impact, facilitating learning cycles, communication strategies, evaluation techniques, and overall project management.

Throughout the course, the trainers will provide insights into best practices, effective tools, and methodologies to enhance the quality of your project. Our aim is to equip you with the skills needed to design, execute, oversee, and justify projects to meet the required quality standards within the KA1 of the Erasmus+ program.
