THERE was great excitement among two Kerry groups last week as they departed for Tampere in Finland on an Erasmus Plus Exchange programme.

A group of 13 students and four staff from National Learning Network Tralee along with a smaller youth group and leaders from South West Kerry Family Resource Centre in Cahersiveen departed on Tuesday, October 8 for an eight day trip which saw the group visit the Verstas organisation in Tampere followed by three days of activities in the Marttinnen Youth Centre.

The theme of the trip was “Promoting Social Inclusion” and the group’s aim to exchange ideas on how best to ensure that young people of all abilities can be included in their communities.

This is the second part of an exchange organised by South West Kerry Family Resource Centre in Cahersiveen which saw a group from Tampere visit South Kerry in May 2018 where the theme was ‘Isolation’.

Such was the success of the visit that an exchange trip was agreed. Erasmus Plus is a European Union programme that supports education, training, youth and sport in Europe.

The aim of the programme is to develop new ways to support inclusion, diversity, equality, gender-balance and non-discrimination.
