The project in a few words

The Lead up! project is a 8-day training course organized by Associazione Kora in Passignano sul Trasimeno (Italy) in October 2022, which aims to empower participants, increase their leadership, mentoring and facilitation skills,  and improve peer-to-peer learning in youth mobilities by enhancing the involvement of group leaders in the activities.

The main idea behind the project is to boost the leadership capacities of the participants, who will then step forward and take on the role of leaders representing the sending organisation in future exchanges organized by Kora.
