DARE Digital Storytelling Handbook of Empowerment

This handbook is designed for young people with visual, hearing, physical impairments so that they can learn about different kinds of international youth exchanges and see that it is not difficult to participate in one. Those who have already participated in an inclusive international youth exchange and would love for others to experience the same, life-changing moments, may wish to become a DARE Ambassador to motivate and support other young people to join Erasmus+ mobility projects. This handbook will help them in reaching that goal.
