Fact Sheet VYE
In a nutshell:
If you are a school or a youth group in Rwanda or Rhineland-Palatine and you want to get in contact to learn, share and experience intercultural dialogue together.
This is the right thing for you.
A lasting memory & learning experience
The European education center Europahaus Marienberg in cooperation with the Partnerschaft Rheinland-Pfalz/Ruanda – Partnership Rhineland-Palatinate/Rwanda (Jumelage) offer “Virtual Youth Exchanges” (VYE) for young people from both countries.
Each project will bring two groups preferably 14+ years of age digitally together to explore and learn on different subjects with activities on and offline. The project is executed by trainers from the Europahaus Marienberg in close cooperation and joint partnership.
The “Virtual Youth Exchange” brings together online and offline activities that create bonds between the two partner groups.
The core aim is to share and learn together and delve into the world of the others. Topic, duration and workload are flexible factors that can be adapted for every VYE anew. All items will be discussed between the Europahaus Marienberg as facilitator and both partner groups from RLP and Ruanda.
