PAS is hosting a Youth exchange for 60 Polish and Scottish young people (6 – 11 June 2014, Edinburgh City Centre). The young people attending from Poland keen to learn more about how Scottish teenagers work within the democratic process and want to learn from Scotland to help create a Youth Council in Poland. There is also an opportunity for some of the Scottish participants to attend a similar event in Poland in October 2014, with full funding available for return flights.
The exchange is about educating and inspiring young people to think about the places where they live as well as the future planning of their communities.
Examples of what the Youth Exchange will involve:
– Sharing experiences about working with youth organisations
– Learning about the Scottish Youth Parliament and meeting some of the inspirational young representatives working there
– Discussions and workshops around topics such as ‘My Space’, and ‘Developing the Future’
– An interactive educational tour around The Scottish Parliament
Why attend the Youth Exchange?
– Great for your CV and personal statement
– Excellent opportunity to learn new skills and build confidence / interpersonal skills
– Great opportunity to meet young people from another country and travel to Poland (must be over 18 to travel to Poland)
