Through this project, the YES Forum and its member organisation Internationaler Bund are supporting the European youth networks JEF Europe (Young European Federalists), ESN International (Erasmus Student Network) and AEGEE Europe (European Students' Forum) and their local and national member with its expertise in view of making their sections accessible to a wider diversity of young people, sharing different backgrounds but also experience disadvantages.
The YES Forum contributed in this training by sharing its knowledge of diversity and inclusion in the field of youth, its expertise, methods and good practices with the other participants, mostly volunteers involved in the local sections of JEF Europe, ESN, AEGEE. It also built stronger connections with these networks for further collaboration on diversity and inclusion in the future.
This 2nd training also started reflecting about the future project outputs:
- A tool to assess these organisations' diversity
- A workshop methodology to raise awareness and train local volunteers towards greater diversity
- A guide of good practices of existing initiatives and good practices towards higher diversity
