The Association Out of Focus will implement the “PartnerUp” project in March 2021 in cooperation with 11 organizations across Europe.

These organizations will create concrete partnerships through the project, and the goals are: to bring together people working with young people to create new project ideas under the Erasmus program, build the capacity for organizations involved in project management under the Erasmus program and provide information on the structure and tools aimed at helping and improving the quality of youth projects.
With this project, the Out of Focus association will respond to the needs of all participating organizations for quality projects, share responsibility and work together, which will lead to mutual benefits through concrete project ideas. This project is conceived as a multilateral activity and therefore its goal is to bring together potential partners and facilitate the development of new projects around the selected topic. Participants will not only have the opportunity to develop new project ideas, but also share examples of their projects, their area of work, learn and experience the program and methodology of project development, monitoring and evaluation, as well as further activities and dissemination of project results.
