Partnership Projects & Services
Our extensive international project experience (including in-depth knowledge of the Erasmus+ funding programme) makes us the international partner of choice for schools, charities and NGOs across the UK and around the world.
We are committed to helping you develop high quality international projects and partnerships. We want to increase the number of international opportunities available to young people, regardless whether these are organised by us or someone else.
Watch our film ‘Break the Chain’ about our international project ‘Youth for Freedom’
In partnership with the National Volunteer Police Cadets, we enabled young people to raise awareness of human trafficking.
Through our consulting division, we offer a range of specialist services including:
- Strategic advice. We will conduct an audit and impact evaluation of your existing international activities, and make recommendations on developing meaningful links with schools or groups in other countries.
- Project development: we will help you to design, grow and promote imaginative and longer-term student or youth led projects around global issues, cultural heritage or community engagement. Share the results and link with others internationally.
- Volunteering: we can help you set up placements for international volunteers in your organisation through the European Voluntary Service (EVS)
- Advice on access to EU funding, project design, application writing, partner identification, project management and evaluation.
Watch our film about the S-Factor project
S-Factor project, an extraordinary project promoting social integration of young people with special needs through performing arts. Over a 5 year period we have worked with the organisers, Kelford and Hilltop Special Schools, to showcase this internationally and build links with 6 other countries, supported by the Erasmus+ programme.
Each year we run a number of courses for staff of youth or other organisations, to develop their capacity to organise international activities for young people. We also provide access to similar training run by our partners in other countries. We run intercultural awareness and pre-departure training for groups about to go overseas for the first time.
We also work with other organisations in the UK or around the world to pursue project opportunities either through joint tenders or as sub-contractors.
