Aims and objectives of the training were:
 To promote inclusion in international projects
 To develop a set of adjusted inclusive methodologies for different disabilities (physical
disabilities, learning disabilities, visual impaired, mixed ability groups etc.)
 To create a pool to exchange experience of the participants
 To transfer the methods from Grenzenlos to international partners and to discover new
ones
 To strengthen the partnership among organisations
 And last, but not least to get inspired! 
During the training course different approaches and methodologies for recruiting, applying and
mentoring inclusive voluntary projects were discovered and explored.
Inclusive means: How can organisations support volunteers with different disabilities and how we
can create voluntary programs accesible. In this way volunteers with disabilities act as their own
agents of change instead of being the one who seeks for help and support.
Participants explored the situation of people with disabilities in different countries as well as
methods on how to work with mixed abiity groups, how to address their programs towards different
needs, they learned some basics in Easy to read languge and explored also different creative
method s. The main message was that there is still a lot to do for youth organisations but also that
it is not so difficult!
One of the results of the training was an exchange network where organisations from Europe
exchange possibilities for volunteers.
