„Partner Up“ Partnership Building Activity, as the name says it, aims at creating concrete partnerships between organizations who provide various cultural activities with and for young people. All of our partner organizations wish to implement quality, efficient and fruitful international activities in the future, and that is where the idea of „Partner Up“ has started. Establishing effective and inclusive partnerships takes time, and it is important for all participating organizations to create the right framework from the start and review the structure and process of the partnership on an ongoing basis. With this project we will address the needs of all participating organizations for quality projects, we will share authority and responsibility which will lead to mutual benefits through concrete project ideas. This project is designed as a multilateral activity and therefore it’s aim is to bring together potential partners and to facilitate the development of new projects around a chosen topic(s). Participants will not have just an opportunity to develop new project ideas but also to share their past projects, their field of work, to learn about and to experience the programme and methodology of creating a project, monitoring and evaluation, just as the follow-up and the dissemination of project results. All these elements are relevant when it comes to implementation of projects, and for this reason, we will create a space for them to advance their project management skills through creative expression and mentorship. By building partnerships we will accelerate learning and distribute skills and knowledge, and we will become more motivated to add a stronger impact on our local communities. Therefore, this project is an important opportunity for us because our team will have the chance to share their knowledge and local, international experiences in the non-formal education context.

Accordingly, the main objectives of the „Partner Up“ are:

  • to bring together youth workers in order to create new project ideas within the Erasmus programme;
  • to build the capacity of participating NGO’s in project management within the Erasmus programme;
  • to provide information about structure and tools aimed to help and improve the quality of youth projects.


Project ideas developed during the PBA will be applied for funding in the next Erasmus deadline, but also we will support partner organisations to apply for different funding options. We foresee the project ideas applied for funding. This will be the strongest dissemination activity since we will directly use the results of the PBA project to develop more activities for and with young people.

A PBA handbook (with the all non-formal learning methods used during TC) will be created after the implementation of the PBA, and before the end of the project itself. The handbook will be created by trainers with help of all participating organizations and inputs from participants in order to share our methods, ideas and outcomes. Handbook will be created in an online version in order to disseminate it effectively and it is environmentally friendly.

All participants will have a meeting with the members and responsible persons of their sending organisations after the activity in order to transfer the knowledge and start working on the further development of the project ideas.

A video-photo shooting of the PBA will be used as promotional material by sending it to media; it will be also uploaded on the promoter websites and will be spread through the relevant communication channels (social networks of participants and organisations);

A day recap photos and videos in a form of Facebook posts. They will also be used as promotional material by sending it to media and shared on promoter websites and relevant communication channels (social networks of participants and organisations);

During the PBA, we will call local media to visit us and to make a TV report about our PBA.
