Youth need to be given the opportunity to work on issues that hit close to home, such as employability, health, the migration crisis etc. That is why YMCA France has created the Youth PowerSpace program, which is aimed at promoting social inclusion, combating injustice and inequality, and coming to the aid of developing countries.

Youth PowerSpace also give volunteers the chance to develop and manage their own projects by providing them with training sessions and access to educational tools. During this project, participants will be shown how to develop and manage their own projects in small groups through various workshops, activities, and an association visit.

We'll also explain the different funding options available inside and outside an organisation, such as ERASMUS+ and the Office of Franco-German Youth. You will also learn and exchange information about long term volunteer options in France, Germany, and Russia.

30 participants will also get the chance to experience each other's culture through cross-cultural dialogue, cultural games and activities, and excursions and sight-seeing. These will help to facilitate and encourage communication, mutual understanding, tolerance, and solidarity amongst participants.
