Dynamo YE provides an opportunity for unemployed, students and graduates young people from the UK and Jordan to develop a youth network of mutual understanding between diverse cultures in Europe and the Middle East, while also encouraging inter-cultural investigation in a range of key topics including: Society; Culture; Arts; Literature; Politics; and Democracy; EU Citizenship; Social Action; and Cultural similarities and differences.
Young people will develop their language skills in English and Arabic, while also developing key personal, life and employability skills, through informal and fun activities, with a focus on culture, art, literature, enterprise and education.
