description of organisation

Nuestra asociación nació en 2014 después de que varios jóvenes que llevábamos bastante tiempo participando en actividades del extinto programa Youth in Action y del Erasmus Plus, decidimos dar el paso adelante para compartir nuestra experiencia con los jóvenes de nuestra ciudad.

Dada la valiosa fuente de conocimientos, experiencia y crecimiento personal que nos supuso nuestra participación en varios programas, decidimos poder ofrecerle la misma oportunidad a los jóvenes de nuestra ciudad. Para ello creamos nuestra asociación, para poder ser socios formales en proyectos internacionales a los que enviar a participantes, para dar a conocer el programa Erasmus + entre los jóvenes de nuestra ciudad y para poder desarrollar actividades internacionales en nuestra ciudad.

Desde que comenzó nuestra andadura no hemos dejado de crecer. Hemos impartido conferencias para más de un centenar de jóvenes para explicarles las oportunidades que ofrece el programa Erasmus Plus, hemos enviado a más de un centenar de participantes a cursos de formación, intercambios, actividades de Diálogo Estructurado... y hemos firmado un convenio con el Ayuntamiento de Lucena para la gestión de un servicio de información y envío de participantes sobre el programa Erasmus Plus habiendo atendido a más de 500 personas en tan sólo seis meses. Desde entonces, han sido numerosos los actos en los que hemos participado, como en el Salón del Estudiante de Lucena y son muchos los ayuntamientos que han contactado con nosotros para que implantemos en su localidad el mismo servicio que ofrecemos en Lucena.

Además, formamos parte de varias redes internacionales de asociaciones juveniles y del EYF.

"We created this organization in 2014 after some youngsters who have been taking part in the Youth in Action program and Erasmus+ program decided to share our experience with the rest of local young people.
Due to the knowledge and experience that our participation in projects gave to us, we decided to offer the same opportunity to the youngster from our city. For that reason we created our orgasization, to be partners in international projects in order to send participants, show what Erasmus+ is and develop international activities in our city.
Since we have begun with this, we haven't stop growing. We have given speech for more than hundred people in order to explain to them the opportunities that Erasmus+ program gives, we have sent more than 100 participants to Training Courses, Youth Exchanges.. and we have signed a deal with the cityhall from Lucena to manage the info service about Erasmus+. Thanks to that, more than 500 people have had information about it in just 6 months. Since then, we have take part in severals meetings such as Estudent's hall, and lots of cityhalls have call us to create the same service in their cities.
Moreover, we take part in several young international networks and EYF."
