about

get to know this project
Singing and performing together is a very enriching and strengthening experience, and can become a medium for community consolidation and consolidation of people with diverse backgrounds. It can also be a powerful tool for articulating and representing the interests and needs of the community to the public and decision-makers. Furthermore, it can become an accessible tool to initiate various thematic discussions and develop and artistically implement solutions for the concerning problems.

With our exchange project “United we sing for social change”, we would like to empower young people with new experience and knowledge, and address their interests and needs in a unique and creative way. 

The project will bring together 25 participants – 20 young people and 5 team leaders – from 5 partner countries: Germany, Romania, Moldova, Armenia and Russia.

During the project, we would like to achieve together mainly the following goals:   
– to offer young people a platform for exchange on current youth and socially relevant topics, problems and possible solutions;
– to broaden the participants’ awareness;
– to encourage their expression and participation with the help of singing and performative methods;
– to foster social and intercultural skills of the participants: communication and cooperation in an international team etc;
– to create joint song performances/ flash mobs/ other artistic actions and get into conversation with the public;
– to develop a project blog, songbook as well as further ideas for further cooperation.

The exchange project will include:

Here is the list with answers to the most popular questions about us and what we do

Most of the international youth exchanges are targeted at young people between the ages of 12 and 30. However, more and more opportunities for children are developed with each year. International youth exchanges are basically aimed at all adolescents and young adults. The youth exchanges organised by CHANCE International are usually targeting young people from 18 to 26 (in some cases up to 30) and funded within the Erasmus + programme.

We distinguish between participant contribution and total costs. The participant contribution is 50 Euro at max, depending on the project. During 2021 there is no participation fee. If the contribution is too high, we will always find a way for you to participate in an encounter. Please contact us!

A youth exchange is financed by the organiser’s own funds, third-party funds and the participant’s contribution. Third-party funds are provided by the Federal Government from the Child and Youth Plan and European funds from the Erasmus+ youth programme. Third-party funds are applied for by the organiser or sponsor.
