Zajel participates in the Exchange Evaluation Meeting in Scotland
Zajel Youth Exchange Program was invited to the fourth S.C.I
(Service Civil International) Exchange Evaluation Meeting in
corporation with I.V.S (International Voluntary Service) Scotland,
which was held in Edinburgh in Scotland from the 16th Oct to the
22nd Oct. 51 participants from 40 different countries gathered to
discuss the evaluations of the voluntary exchanges held during the
2012 season, to share best practice on work camps and to expand
networking to establish friendship with other participants.
There were various topics that were discussed at the meeting. The
topics included the follow-up on the topic discussed in the
meeting held last year, the use of on-line placement system, new
partnership procedures, evaluation of partnerships, the methods of
raising awareness of global and local issues, the way of
increasing active citizenship, how to promote the programs, etc.
There was also an event called “Market of Projects” where several
organizations showed a display of their own voluntary program.
Zajel took this opportunity and showed photos of the international
camps that we had organized as well as images of Palestinian
culture to raise awareness of Palestinian issues. Zajel also
presented the video to show the last summer camp.
The participants also enjoyed a tour of the old city of Scotland
and learned the culture and history of Scotland.
The meeting was sponsored by the Youth in Action program run by
British Council and set up by the European Union.
