Open Call for hosting local – Training for multipliers – Y Vote – it’s up to You(th)

Dear locals,

Do you want to help us in spreading the idea of active citizenship and give a contribution in creation of a bigger impact?

During the last AGORA, Y Vote 2014 was ratified as AEGEE-Europe project! From now on until the date of the European Parliamentary Elections in 2014, we will organise a wide range of activities from youth conferences, panel discussions, online campaign, bus tour, voting guide etc – everything to encourage young people to participate in the European Parliament Elections in May 2014.

One essential aspect of the success of this project will be the involvement of the locals and the fact that YOU, in your own antennas, take action and organise local activities!

To make this happen, we want to organise a “training course for multipliers”, which will gather members who want their locals to take an active part in Y Vote, and want to gain skills and understanding about how to carry out local activities and local workshops about the European Parliamentary Elections in their cities!

During the event, participants will come up with creative and inspiring ideas which will be developed later in their locals and will improve their training skills in order to be able to act as multipliers in their cities!

This is the point, where we need your help, your motivation and your involvement! We issue this open call for your locals’ contribution to a better future for Europe .

The course should take place in September/October 2013 and will look as following:

  • 6 days,
  • 25 participants,
  • workshops on presentation and training skills,
  • workshops on local activities and ways to deliver them to AEGEE locals.

You, as an organizing local, will have to provide:

  • lodging for 25 participants and 5 trainers,
  • rooms and material for workshops,
  • 3 meals per day,
  • social program.

The Yvote project team will help you to prepare the Youth in Action application for the training course.

If you are interested in organising this training in your city, please send us an email to yvote2014(at)gmail.com by 20th of April containing the following information:

  • Local antenna
  • Experience of the antenna in organising events (local/European)
  • Your motivation and possible dates to host the Training Course.

Yours,
Y Vote 2014 team
