Time to Move- discover ways to experience Europe with Donegal Youth Service and Europe Direct Letterkenny.

What’s on this year?

There are many opportunities in Europe for young people from Ireland. Especially those with fewer opportunities, such as unemployed young people and early school leavers. Time to Move activities are organised by Eurodesk experts and offer young people the opportunity to prepare themselves for physical or virtual projects. They can browse through webinars, information sessions, opportunities for personal guidance or physical activities near them, and start planning ahead.

Working, studying, training or volunteering in Europe can be especially beneficial to young people struggling to find their place in society. Often this information doesn’t reach the people who need it most. The Time to Move campaign from Eurodesk, the Europe-wide information network for young people, aims to put this right.

This year in Letterkenny two amazing teams will work together on an exciting TTM event. The Europe Direct Letterkenny and Donegal Youth Service invite TY students to the workshop on the Euroactivism. This will be a unique opportunity to discover and explore what does it really mean to be the European citizen and how young people can shape the world around them. The date of the event will be announced shortly.

Europe is open to you!

Every Thursday in October, on Eurodesk Brussels Link YouTube and social media channels, you can find a Q&A interview around key topics for young people. Locally, you can talk to our expert- Katarzyna Kurzeja, Youth Information Officer in Letterkenny YIC and get free and non-judgmental information on mobility opportunities available to you. Visit the Europe Direct Letterkenny if you want to find out more about the European Union and engage in a discussion on its future.

“It is very important to have places where young person can go to and ask all the questions about their next steps- whether they want to study, or take a gap year and explore the world, or simply move to another country. The Europe is open to you, and here at Donegal Youth Service and Europe Direct centre we are always happy to provide reliable information and support young people’s development”, says Katarzyna. “It’s great that this year I can work with Kevin McCaul, ED Letterkenny and deliver the workshop to local students and professionals. We hope for a successful and inspirational event.”
