Rainbow Peer Forces

“Rainbow Peer Forces” yra tarptautinis projektas, kurio tikslas – remti LGBTIQ+ jaunuolius ir skleisti informuotumą apie LGBTIQ+ temas pasitelkiant bendraamžių švietimą. Bendraamžių švietimas reiškia mokymąsi iš bendraamžių ir dalijimąsi informacija bei žiniomis savo bendruomenėse ir jaunų žmonių grupėse. „Rainbow Peer Forces“ siekia ugdyti ir stiprinti bendraamžių gebėjimus projekto partnerių šalyse ir remia “Rainbow” bendraamžių švietėjų tinklo kūrimą, kuris informuotų apie LGBTIQ+ temas tarp savo bendraamžių ir kurtų priimančią aplinką savo bendruomenėse. Savo veiklai suteikiama galimybė pritaikyti bendraamžių švietimo metodiką ir neformalųjį švietimą.

Projektas finansuojamas Erasmus+ programos lėšomis.
