The training modules will act as “chapters” of the overall e-learning platform and will be used as self-paced learning experiences that include written content, audio, video, and other visual elements.
The partnership is currently developing the structure and design of the e-learning platform, which corresponds to IO3. It will include a wide range of training modules providing a mix of theoretical information, learning activities, and practical guidance to enhance the skills of professionals working with unaccompanied minors, thus providing cost-effective education.
Over the next few months, the partners will work on developing the project's e-learning platform.

AddArt is willing to become yet another ALF ambassador in Greece and we are willing to share the foundation’s actions and positive influence. Additionally, networking remains to be one of the most important goals for a young institution such as AddArt and sharing that network represents a benefit for all parties involved. Special attention is given to dissemination of projects simply due to the fact that the Reach is the most important aspect in contribution to Culture and the Arts. AddArt is encouraging young artists and creators to disseminate these tools to everyone who would like use them: teachers, psychologists, social workers, anxious people, creative people, teenagers, children and many more. Our work and good practices learned are disseminated throughout all are future endeavors and some of the more specific ways to communicate them is via our: social networks, festivals, press releases, various addressing to publics (TV and radio shows, interviews etc.) as well through projects to come.
AddArt constantly searches for different ways to contribute and expand its outreach and network. As we are headquartered in Thessaloniki, Greece we belong to Mediterranean which is the immediate reason that connects us to ALF. By joining ALF, AddArt can be even more involved in international projects both on European and international scale. AddArt is always ready to leave positive mark and contribute to projects with its experience, knowledge, passion and innovation. All our projects saw nothing but positive feedback by funding organizations, partnering organizations as well as from the community. Hopefully, ALF can be yet another “mean” for AddArt spreading Art.
