 Deadline: November 5, 2014

The North-South Centre of the Council of Europe calls for participants for the 10th Africa-Europe Training Course for Youth Organisations in Nairobi-Kenya, from 25th January to 1st February 2015 in the framework of the 6th African University on Youth and Development. This Training Course is an opportunity given to youth leaders from Africa and Europe to share, better understand and integrate the objectives set at the international level in their work and contribute to their achievement.The week-long course can accommodate up to 20 participants. Active participation and in-depth reflection are key features of the course. Participants will compare their approaches to youth work and youth participation, engaging in the implementation and evaluation of the programme with the team of trainers.

About the Training Course
Encouraged by the success of the previous Africa-Europe Training Courses and the demand for capacity building opportunities expressed by youth leaders in the Africa-Europe Youth Co- operation, the North-South Centre will run the 10th edition of this programme. The course is organised in co-operation with the European Youth Forum, the Pan-African Youth Union and the Network of International Youth Organisations in Africa.
During the course, participants will develop competences and tools to strengthen their political participation in the context of the Africa-EU Strategic Partnership and develop competences for the capacity-building of their organisations as civil society actors in the development process. The course will also provide an excellent space for strategic networking, finding partners and promoting intercultural dialogue and learning; these dimensions will be encouraged by the team of trainers.

Cost and Benefits

The North-South Centre will provide Support for Travel Expenses and Board and Lodging.
  • They will do their best to issue a pre-paid ticket. In exceptional cases, participants might advance the booking of the international flight and reimbursement will be done fully or in an agreed amount.
  • It is expected that participants/background organisation support the expenses related with local transport in the home country, as well as visa and necessary vaccination costs. Please look for information regarding health and visa needs that you might have to attend the activity.
