Experience in Fild of international youth work
The Kindervereinigung Leipzig e.V. has been organising international youth exchanges, seminars and trainings from the early 1990s onwards. Currently we organise 4 to six youth exchanges a year. Most of them within in the ERASMUs+ Programme some also funded by bilateral funding organisations.
In Leipzig we are member of the municipal expert committee on international youth-work. In 2017 we introduce the monthly round table “international youth work” for professionals and volunteers in Leipzig.
The Kindervereinigung Leipzig e.V. is member of the European Association of Institutions of Non-formal Education of Children and Youth (www.eaicy.eu). Kindervereinigung Leipzig e.V. was partner in the project “wir weit weg (we far away), in which school students developed international youth exchanges supported by so called coaches international.
