Global Exchange is here!






What is it:

Greater Manchester Youth Network are excited to be running Global Xchange in Manchester, offering a cross-cultural exchange programme where young people will live, learn & work in local communities to develop individuals, communities and global networks.

In October 2011, a team of 20 enthusiastic volunteers (aged 18-25) fromIndiaand theUKwill be arriving inManchesterto undertake voluntary work with local community projects, before travelling together toIndiafor the second leg of the exchange.

The exchange will promote the principles of:

  • Youth action
  • Cross cultural dialogue
  • Inclusion & diversity
  • Partnership
  • Innovation

Young people will get involved in communities inManchester, to learn and take positive action during their time here.

Can you or your organisation help by:

  • Welcoming the exchange participants toManchester?
  • Hosting pairs of volunteers (1 from theUK, 1 fromIndia) for quality voluntary placements for 10 weeks from mid October for 3.5 days per week?
  • Host pairs of volunteers (1 from theUK, 1 fromIndia) in your home or help us to advertise to find host homes?
  • Getting the participants involved in events in the community?
  • Supporting us with practical help like the use of your rooms or resources?

We’re confident the experience will be a positive one for everyone involved as it will offer the chance to learn about each other’s lives, about issues in the community, and about global issues too.
