News / Make your school a Superschool
The Regional Youth Cooperation Office (RYCO) has opened a call for secondary school exchanges in the Western Balkans. This Superschools programme is a new opportunity for schools, students, and teachers that aims to support peacebuilding and reconciliation processes and intercultural learning and dialogue between schools, students and their communities. Participating secondary schools will have the chance to implement school-to-school exchanges as well as other capacity building, networking and cooperation activities. The deadline for application is 28 October.
The programme, which will be implemented in the next three years will focus on supporting schools to develop and conduct youth exchanges as well as to design a regional school exchange scheme which will enable secondary school students to participate in a long-term RYCO exchange program. Every secondary school, public or private, from the Western Balkans is invited to apply and implement these exchanges, and thanks to the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), exchange expenses will be covered for all selected schools.
The Superschools programme is part of the multi-donor “Western Balkans School Exchange Scheme” project co-financed by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) together with RYCO.
RYCO is an intergovernmental organisation that stewards and promotes the regional and intercultural cooperation of young people within and between six Western Balkans societies.
