Cross-cultural approach is one of the key areas of Euroweek in providing non formal education to its students. The facilitators of every activity are the Youth Leaders (volunteers) around the world. Each volunteer has a commendable background and expertise such as in Economics, International Business, Law, Masters in Psychology, English Teachers, International Studies, Tourism, Political Science, Literature, Journalism, Aircraft Engineer, Software Engineer and more. Furthermore, Youth Leaders are also engaged with different organizations, serving as volunteers inside and outside of their country. They have previously attended local and international seminars and are passionate in all they do more so advocacy work. Also, majority of the Youth Leaders are actively participating and engaging in community activities; they have also interesting hobbies that will surely interest all the participants.
In this regard, with the diverse background of Youth Leaders, the participants will not only have first-hand information about each country but they can also learn life lessons that they can use in their future endeavour.
In this year’s Euroweek, we have Youth Leaders from Africa, Central and North America, Asia, and Europe. In total the program has almost 30 volunteers around the world.
