Jongeren voor Uitwisseling en Begrip (JUB) is looking for participants for a training course called “From new challenges to innovative contributions: using online tools to promote exchange and understanding”. The main goal is to empower youth workers with essential competences to promote exchange and understanding, using online methods.

The idea originates from the hugely successful ‘Human of New York’ page, which has gathered over 16 million likes on Facebook by now. The power of social media is that it can reach a lot of people quickly, and it offers an easy space for interaction afterwards as well.

  • Willing and able to work on local level with the subject matter, with youngsters;
