Youthmakers Hub implemented the project “Mind The Gap” funded by ESAA (Erasmus Students Alumni Association) and co-organized by garagErasmus4Athens, Erasmus Mundus Association Greece, JEF Europe, Greek Youth Mobility and Balkans Beyond Borders. The objectives of the project were a) to raise awareness about Erasmus+ and to inform Youth about mobility opportunities, b) to build the Capacity of Youth with the necessary tools for the 21st century and c) to engage Policy makers to support Youth Action. The project brought together Youth to be trained and act as multipliers of knowledge. International grassroots organizations cooperated with ESAA organizations to exchange networks, ideas and opportunities. The project included one Policy Makers Forum, and one 2-day Capacity Building Training Seminar with two workshops: 1. Project Management & Submission of Erasmus+ projects, and 2. Pitching, Mobility Opportunities and Tips for applications. Most of the participants attended both workshops. The 2-day Capacity Building Training Seminar, implemented in Athens, Greece, aimed to empower Youth (18-30) in Greece to act as advocates of the European Union idea and values.
