Youth exchanges, training courses – whaaat?! …that came up our minds when we first heard those terms. So really, what are those mysterious „youth projects“ all about?
No, parents don’t change their children for a week… but they may enjoy a week without them (or worrying about their kids being in a foreign country all alone, maybe getting lost, as ours first did…) Young people from various nations all across Europe come together for one to three weeks and work on a specific topic. Moreover, they share their cultures and build up valuable friendships.
For us all those projects were a great experience and huge opportunity to explore the world! There is so much you can learn from each other, that’s just unbelievable.
And because we got out so much of it, we decided to create our own organization. We want to give other young people the chance to get to know the world like we did.
wEUnite was founded in April 2014 by Nina-Bianca Anranter and Kerstin Ess, both students in Austria, who met each other on one of those projects and became really good friends!
Since April 2014 we took part in several projects and hosted our first one. We liked organizing our first exchange so much that we decided to write more projects… and somehow the National Agency liked our ideas, which makes us extremely happy and proud!
Within the next weeks we will host two training courses.
