The Project partners implemented Study Visits at the Youth Center Radar 72, as well as at Center Fjället. During the visits at the Youth Centers, their coordinators explained to the partner representatives the function of the Youth Centers, their contribution in the youth’s lives, as well as the use of the technological equipment provided. In addition, they had the opportunity to attend some activities held at the Youth Centers with the participation of young people, so as to see the use of the innovative tools provided.
The partners listened to the Youth Centers’ coordinators with great interest and asked questions for the best understanding of the project, as they will be the ones to organize and run the Youth Centers that will be created in the participating Municipalities’ regions, through the implementation of STEPS Project.
Following the Study Visits, a partners’ meeting will be held in order to summarize the best practices implemented at the Youth Centers of Sweden, as well as their application in the Youth Centers about to be created in the Municipalities of Skyros, Eleusina, Komotini and Lasithi Plateau. Last but not least, during the partner’s meeting, the next phases of the Project and their implementation will be planned.
