The project aims at empowering youth leaders and youth workers with methods of peer to peer education in order to promote healthy life style in local communities. Promoter organizations work with different target groups so during the project we will develop different approaches on how to reach youngsters with fewer opportunities and other marginalized groups of the society in order participants multiply similar peer education activities in their sending organizations. Participants will have to prepare a health promotion campaign in Pogradec in order to foster local youngsters to maintain a healthy life style away from substance abuse, obesity, alcohol and smoking using sport as a tool to reach the goal. The concept of active participation, responsibility taking and social inclusion will also be addressed. The Inter-cultural learning process will contribute to understand different stereotypes about risky behaviors in different cultures. The activity will be based in non- formal education methodology and different methods will be used as role play, discussions, work in groups, etc. We are looking for 4 motivated youngsters: available places left: 4 – Participation fee for each project is 30% of the travel costs, plus the annual membership fee 2014 (30€).
