T-BRIDGES – Capacity Building for Youth Workers to bring tourism bridges between Africa and Europe
The T-BRIDGES project is an Erasmus+ (Capacity Building in the field of Youth) project which aims to promote the cooperation between Europe and Africa in the field of youth and explore the potential of youth work in order to increase the employability of the young people in the field of tourism which is one of the most promising industries both in Europe and in Africa.
In order to promote this objective, T-BRIDGES is going to organise 1 transnational seminar, 2 capacity building training courses and 1 e-learning course in order to train the youth workers from the Partner Countries in the organisation of non-formal and informal learning activities for the development of the skills of young people related to tourism and the development of the entrepreneurial spirit of the young people related with the industry.
It is expected that 138 youth workers from all the partner countries are going to be involved in the activities of the project both through the participation in the transnational training events and through their participation in the e-learning course that the project is going to develop. These youth workers are then going to implement practically the knowledge obtained through their participation in the training events with their activities with the young people. It is expected that at least 300 young people are going to benefit indirectly from the activities of the project through their youth workers.
The consortium of the project is multi-actor, it has a great experience in the field and it has complementary competencies. It is constituted from 6 partners from 5 countries (Greece, Spain, Romania, Cape Verde and Ghana). It is coordinated by the Academy of Entrepreneurship in Greece and Action Synergy is participating as partner. The partners from the African Countries (Cape Verde and Ghana) are youth organisations that are willing to build their capacity to support youth exchanges and also to support the youth in their local community. The European partners include organisations experts in entrepreneurial related training, experts in youth exchanges, experts in e-learning courses and experts in the field of tourism.
The transnational seminar was organised in Greece and the two capacity building training courses are going to be organised in Ghana and Cape Verde. The last training course in Ghana is going to be combined with a final conference.
