The result of the project will be documented in the form of a youth exchange best practice guide that will provide a case study example of an implemented youth exchange as a method for developing the competences and promoting the integration of marginalised youth. The guide will offer testimonies of the exchange participants based upon their documentations of the activity. The impact will be increased visibility and better understanding of the difficulties faced by marginalised young people in Europe and Africa, and how by using methods such as a youth exchange a tangible change can be achieved.Young people will gain a sense of self-worth, and ability to influence changes to their own lives and the wider community.
