Aġenzija Żgħażagħ Funding Seminar for Youth Organizations in Gozo  22/07/2019
Aġenzija Żgħażagħ Funding Seminar for Youth Organizations in Gozo

On Saturday 13th July Aġenzija Żgħażagħ organised an information and training seminar for youth organisations, hosted by the Ministry for Gozo. The aims of the seminar were to give further information on Aġenzija Żgħażagħ’s funding schemes for youth organisations, train those present on how to develop a project proposal and promote the Erasmus+ programme.

 

During the seminar, participants had the opportunity to learn more about Agenzija Żgħażagħ’s Be Active and Assistance for You (A4U) funding schemes. The A4U is intended to assist youth organisations to improve their facilities and acquire resources to assist them in their work. The Be Active scheme targets community projects. 

In order to access such funds, youth organisations or organisations working with and for young people would need to submit a project proposal. In this regard good practices were shared with the audience. Also during the interactive workshops youth workers from Aġenzija Żgħażagħ discussed with the participants what would be needed to present a successful project proposal and creative and innovative project design. Emphasis was put on the need to keep the young people at the heart of such initiatives.

 The seminar ended with a presentation by EUPA on the ‘European Solidarity Corps’ and other Erasmus+ mobility projects.
