1. Playlist BUILD A GROUP FOR YOUTH EXCHANGE

Join

Content

In this playlist, you will learn how to build and prepare your group for a youth exchange. Having young people involved from the very beginning helps them develop a sense of belonging and ownership of the project. It will also bring a sense of quality to the project and a chance for leaders to experience youth work good practice.

It is recommended that all partners begin from involving young people at the very start of the project, regardless of whether they are a sending or a hosting group.

Content

Unsplash offers beautiful, free images and photos that you can download and use for any project. Better than any royalty free or stock photos. Gifted by the world’s most generous community of photographers.

Ask your group members to choose 5 to 10 photos from the gallery on Unsplash to explain to others how getting involved in a youth exchange can enable them to make the world a better place. Everyone can share their visual story. Make notes of the appearing issues to use them in the next steps of exchange planning.

There are more similar websites to communicate ideas with images and photos. Go find them in this Medium post article by Dustin Senos ‘Stock photos that don’t suck. A list of places to find the best free stock photos’
