This seminar is the second mobility of 2 parts project.

The aim of the project is to improve the quality of youth work within NGOs working with and for youth through the effective use of creative and participatory monitoring and evaluation techniques for impact assessment of learning activities (M&E).

During the training participants will work on participatory methods for monitoring and evaluation for impact assessment of learning activities. They will develop their capacities to adapt and use creative and participatory methods for monitoring and evaluation of impact for effective design and implementation of learning activities for young people.

Between the two main activities participants will implement some learning activities using the methods from the training.

The seminar will be for supporting the exchange of experience, good practices and the elaboration of the project proposals in the field of participatory methods of monitoring and evaluation for impact in youth work.
