Projects Involving Youths and Young Adults
in Birmingham, West Midlands

 

Praxis Europe thrives to modernise education, training and youth work across Europe.

 

We offer exciting opportunities for young people to study, work, volunteer, teach and train abroad in Europe or to simply go abroad on a project and get a taste of what Erasmus+ has to offer.

 

Our vision is one of commitment to success and ambition; we aim to support marginalised people to find their voice, be healthy and learn new skills alongside developing, achieving and gaining a positive identity and an independent place in today’s society. Our method of mentoring young people involves guiding them to become confident, self sufficient and mature individuals so they can set realistic targets. Through activities and conversations which involve physical and mental participation, our goal is to teach our learners that perseverance, personal motivation and mutual respect for all is key to success.

 

Erasmus+ is aimed at schools, further and higher education institutions, vocational education, adult education, youth and sport organisations actively involved in delivering formal and non-formal education, training, youth work and sporting activities.
