What about the Turkish training module on youth participation?
Study trip to Eskişehir by Yeditepe University Sociology Department and local meeting with partners for the development of the Turkish training module on youth participation.
The Turkish team of PARTIBRIDGES comprises three partners located in two different cities, with Yeditepe University being based in Istanbul, and Tepebaşı Youth Centre and Eksi25 Association in Eskişehir. On April 6th and 7th, a study trip was organized to Eskişehir, attended by researchers Banu Koçer Reisman and Demet Lüküslü from the Yeditepe University Sociology Department together with eight voluntary students. The trip set out to accomplish two major goals: to get all the partners of the team together to develop the content of the training module; and to involve the students interested in the project by introducing them to the Eskişehir partners and their respective work for and with the youth in their local settings. The first day of the trip, the partners and students came together, visiting first the Eksi25 Association in their offices and then touring the various youth centers throughout the city run by the Tepebaşı group. Throughout this informative and fruitful day the partners had a chance to discuss the target group of the training module. On the second day, a meeting was held as a smaller group comprising the representatives of each partner to discuss the content of the training module. After partners, worked out the titles of the teaching units and the sequences within those units, they identified the specific tasks necessary to develop the module. They then shared these tasks among each other through a division of labor. Finally, they agreed on a time schedule for the tasks as a practical measure to monitor their progress in their respective cities.
