The project “EUinAid – Youth involved in First Aid” develops a transnational network and common approach to First Aid practice. It is based on youth engagement to promote social inclusion and well-being of young people with fewer opportunities. EUinAid aims to improve skills and competences of young people from 18 to 25, especially those who are not in education, employment or training (NEETs) and youth workers in the field of Health Assistance. The project directs at developing and testing an innovative cross-border approach to First Aid practice and training at EU level. It fosters the assessment of transversal skills and supports the validation of non-formal learning and its permeability with formal education pathways. JOIN member S.O.G.IT. Italy, section of Settimo Torinese leads the project in collaboration with Johanniter Austria, Johannita Hungary, and 3 other organisations:
DOREA Educational Institute WTF (Cyprus) De mãos dadas pela vida (Brazil) İstanbul Avrupa Araştırmaları Derneği (Turkey) IAAD
The partners map and analyse the First Aid systems in Europe and implement a multilingual e-training platform. This network enables all relevant parties to share good practices in this field. In the training course that combines the use of Open Education Resources with Youth Exchanges, the participants prepare for employment through non-formal learning activities.
Funded by the European Commission under the ERASMUS+ programme, the project started in November 2018 and will run for eighteen months.
