EuroPeers. Summertime.

It has been a good summer for EuroPeers UK.

We have kept busy, kicking off with our training at Brunel University last month, followed by the course in Cardiff. We are extremely happy to see young people join us for a few intensive days of learning, sharing international experiences, gaining confidence in their abilities and purely enjoying themselves.

Thank you to all of you who have joined us for the journey thus far.

Both these events are merely starting points, from which our network will expand, and grow into something with a vibrant presence throughout the UK.

Our young people, now fully fledged EuroPeers, have proved to be an active bunch ready to learn from one another, organise themselves,  and put their ideas into practice.

As always we are here to inspire your creative minds and encourage your active involvement. There are volumes of opportunities out there waiting for you. EuroPeers UK are here to connect you to new people, places, experiences and help you along the way.

Join us today!

As Creative Director ​of Momentum World I had the pleasure of going to visit my daughter Charlotte who is doing and Erasmus+  EVS program in Spain. This allows her to teach English in a small school to students aged between 3 and 13. As well as helping her develop her Spanish skills, independence, confidence and ability to meet others. 

I have seen Charlotte develop over the last few months and grow much more independent and she’s looking at the bigger picture now this is all thanks to the EVS program.

Why not get involved yourself if you are aged between 18 and 30 you are entitled to take up these programs. Contact us now for more information on how to do this
