Job Shadowing

The CAT fellows perform a 14-days job shadowing in a EU partner organisation. The Fellows depart in Azerbaijani-Georgian teams in 3 flows in Spring 2019, Autumn 2019, and Spring 2020. In total 12 fellows will be sent to 2 hosting organisations:

Zemgale NGO Centre in Jelgava, Latvia, for job-shadowing focusing on youth work, youth participation, capacity building of civil society, volunteering and active citizenship, intercultural work (8 Fellows)

Asociacion Egeria Desarrollo Social in Malaga, Spain, for job-shadowing focusing on youth activism, gender issues, community development, mobilising and building coalitions across civil society actors (4 Fellows)

The job shadowing aims to develop competences of young leaders and activists from Azerbaijan and Georgia in advocacy and campaigning, specifically to explore practices and methodologies related to their field of work. The mobility programme will be tailored to the Fellows’ profiles and expectations. Concretely it features following activities:
