This week, Youth Express Network hosted its first cross-border project of the year. This German-French thematic visit was organised in collaboration with our long-time partners Arbeit und Leben in Bayern and the OFAJ-DFJW.
The group of young people was composed of 13 vocational school students from Weiden, Germany. Aspiring to become specialised educators, they spent 5 days in Strasbourg were they met with french young people studying in the same field.
During these 5 days, they were given the opportunity to visit Strasbourg and its museum and European Parliament. They also visited the IFCAAD – a french school dedicated to social and educational work – a French-German kindergarden and our member organisation Association l’Etage.
Next week, we will welcome another group for a thematic visit on the food profession.
