About engAGE

EngAGE is well aligned with the EU Youth Strategy and its 3 main objectives: To ENGAGE, by fostering young people's participation in civic life. To CONNECT, by connecting young people across the European Union and beyond, to foster voluntary engagement, learning mobility, solidarity and intercultural understanding. To EMPOWER young people by encouraging them to take charge of their own lives.

The project plans to do all this with young people, youth organisations and other organisers of youth work affecting the lives of young people on all levels; foster the development of citizenship competencies, support and develop opportunities for ‘learning to participate’, raising interest in participatory actions.

The umbrella topic of the project is diversity & inclusion of all members of society and the exchange of experiences that takes place when encouraging intergenerational dialogue. The participants in the training will develop the skills and competences to work with senior citizens contributing to "active aging" while developing their own project, thus enhancing their sense of initiative. The participants in the train-the-trainer activities will enhance their key competences in volunteer management and motivation, as well as their leadership skills in order to successfully work with young volunteers.
