We are still looking for a UK team to participate in an Erasmus+ Youth Exchange in Turkey in September... Any friends working in youth/sport in the UK???

Message me here or email me at coyote.initiatives@gmail.com for more info/infopack.

The Youth Exchange "Towards Inclusive Communities: The role of volunteering in sport" will run from 18th-25th September, in Izmir, Turkey and is hosted by our long term partner in Turkey "Yaygın Eğitim Merkezi Derneği" who run very high quality projects.

If you know of a group who would be interested, please get in touch. We are looking for one youth leader (any age) and 5 young people (18-30 yrs) - preferably all from an existing group, and definitely interested in the topic!

The role of youth leader is voluntary - but all costs of the course, including travel, will be covered/reimbursed by the host organisation.

Due to some date changes neither myself or our potential volunteers are unable to make it. Please contact us at coyote.initiatives@gmail.com.

Thank you!
