With the “Beacon of Values” project, a small-scale strategic partnership project of the Erasmus+ programme approved by the Cyprus National Agency, we wish to create and develop a tangible, transferable tool that will be used mainly by educators and youth workers in schools, educational institutions and NGOs, to create learning activities aiming to promote, communicate and enhance active citizenship and common values in everyday life, in order to formulate attitudes and skills to combat xenophobia, racism and discrimination, using creative, innovative and non-formal education methods and activities. 

The project will focus on non-formal learning methodology, placing the participants in the center of the learning process, relying on their interest and motivation for a profound and multi-level learning approach and emphasizing their own responsibility for learning. The end-results will be the Curriculum for the Training of Multipliers in 4 languages (English, German, Greek, Romanian), the Beacon of Values Tool Box in 4 languages and 15 youth workers and educators trained as multipliers.

We expect that the project will have the effect of a continuous stimulation of learning and evolving. Moreover, we plan to create a chain of exchange in terms of expertise, skills, ideas and perspectives in the field of youth education, as the participants will act as multipliers of the project in their home countries and local communities.

The project is implemented by Politistiko Ergastiri Ayion Omoloyiton, Cyprus (https://politistiko-ergastiri.org/) in partnership with Pro Vobis – National Resource Center for Volunteering, Romania (http://www.provobis.ro/) and Die Europäische Jugendbildungs- und Jugendbegegnungsstätte Weimar (EJBW), Germany (Europäische Jugendbildungs- und Jugendbegegnungsstätte Weimar),  from 01/11/2021 until 01/05/2023, and funded by the European Union within the Erasmus+ Programme (https://erasmus-plus.ec.europa.eu/), Small-scale Strategic Partnerships, under the contract number: 2021-1-CY02-KA210-YOU-000029970.
