Taking EU youth policies to the classroom in Schio, Italy

On Thursday, February 6th, 2020, Marco Boaria (ALDA Head of Resources & Development Unit and CEO ALDA+), Anna Ditta (ALDA Project Development Officer) and Laura Crestani (ALDA R&D Unit Assistant) participated in a workshop on EU youth policies held at the Youth Information Centre in Schio, located within the Faber Box and aimed at three classes of the 4th grade of the "Martini" Human Sciences High School

The workshop was created on the initiative of some of the high school students, who had concluded their school-work alternation project with the Youth Information Centre and wished to acquire and share a better knowledge of the functioning of the European Union, of European youth policies and of all the related opportunities that the EU currently offers to young people through its programs.
ALDA was contacted in the light of its twenty years of experience in European programmes, projects and training.
After a short explanation of the project by the students, a variety of collective and group workshops followed for the participants to better understand EU geography and its features. Subsequently, EU youth policies were illustrated showing their aim to improve the life and opportunities of young people; and the participants were presented with different programmes they could experience themselves as active protagonists, such as the European Solidarity Corps.
Finally, the ALDA team led a quiz game on notions relating to Europe and the European Union, with the sought-after prize of the participation in an ALDA mission outside of Italy in the coming months: congratulations to the winner and to all of the students to took this special training opportunity!
