Youth in Balance

(Youth Exchange)

Strengthening Mental Health and increasing the quality of life

/ 01. - 05.07.2024 /

Aguiar da Beira, Portugal

Project organization: Agrupamento de Escolas de Aguiar da Beira

The youth exchange will take place between 1st and 5th of July 2024 in Aguiar da Beira, Portugal. 

It is more than obvious to us – the consortium's technicians and organizations – that it is necessary to unite the youth sector, including at international level, and to develop innovative intervention actions adjusted to the real needs and challenges of young people, helping them to build happier and more successful futures on a personal level, social, professional, etc., which will contribute in the medium and long term to an improvement in their quality of life and mental health.
We believe that this project will be the first step towards social change and transformation for young people from rural areas – the participants of this project, who will be directly impacted; and other young people, reached by the exploitation of results. To this end, in this project we bring together organizations from 7 geographical contexts, which will give their rural youth the opportunity to participate in a non-formal education project, focused on deconstructing the challenges that these young people live and feel, as well as on their development and training, so that, in the future, they can benefit from a better quality of life and mental health.
