On 6 February, YEAs delivered an info session on EU-funded opportunities for youth in Yeghvard, Kotayk region of Armenia. The objectives of the activity were to empower youth in small communities of Armenia, to motivate them and to raise awareness among them on the EU-funded opportunities and support young Armenians to get involved in EU-funded projects and initiatives. The info session started with an introduction to the EU, its history, institutions, values, and EU-Armenia relations, leading to detailed information on Erasmus +, youth exchanges, informal education, European Solidarity Corps, with a special focus on how to find/apply to such programmes. YEAs also represented their initiative and informed young people on how they can get involved. At the end of the event a needs assessment survey was carried out to check what kind of training YEAs can conduct for the region, and how this format can be turned into a long-term project. As a result 40 participants took part in the event and improved their knowledge in EU-funded opportunities.
