Short description of the event:

The AFS Global Competence Certificate (GCC) is a proven quality learning program based on solid intercultural theory and learning principles, that aims at developing lifelong, tangible global skills essential to live, work, and make a real social impact around the world, such as collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, cross-cultural communication, open-mindedness and flexibility.

Inspired by the GCC Special Edition AFS Intercultural Programs put together due to programme changes for AFS students during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have now created a Teen-friendly version for students participating in Erasmus+ funded individual pupil mobility, featuring a closed, minors-only platform for connecting and sharing with other learners worldwide. The programme is now being tested during their 2/3 months exchange, from January to March 2022.

This programme has been tailored for students participating in Erasmus+ funded individual pupil mobility, and it is now being tested during their 2/3 month exchange, from January to March 2022.
