A global citizenship education programme enabling young people to develop an in depth understanding of different cultures, the world and their place within a global community. Central to the development of this programme are the core principles of Curriculum for Excellence and the priorities of partner countries.
This programme provides a platform enabling our local young people to experience the wider world, cultivate positive attitudes toward difference and diversity, recognise the responsibility we have to understanding those differences, appreciate their own circumstances and embrace the opportunities available to them assisting them to play a full and active part in society.
The exchange is primarily aimed at local young people and supporting adult volunteers. It was set up with the needs and experiences of local participants being paramount to the project outcomes, however the programme does also serve to benefit the partner countries and participants involved.
