About the project


The project is based upon Non-Formal Education and is working to develop the new methodology of the Youth Ambassadors of Non-Formal Education, trained youngsters which can use peer-to-peer approach providing their experience to inspire other young people and relevant stakeholders in giving a higher credit and a better use to NFL experiences. One Youth Ambassador from North Macedonia will go on a Job Shadowing for a period of 21 days in Slovenia, both with the aim to “shadow” the work of the organization on the field and to provide suggestions for the future activities to be implemented.
