Our actions: ICT Learning, Internet and Community Service  Train youth people (16-25) to become ICT teachers of the digital excluded elderly, while developing autonomy and active citizenship.
 Train the elderly (people over 55) to become mentors for the youth (their previous teachers) to better face work and life challenges with an ethic dimension and valuing youngest "digital capital".
 Train Facilitators of intergenerational learning of each country of the consortium to be the key actors and mediators of those two groups. Our innovation: Youth, Elderly and Intergenerational Exchange
The eScouts project aims to prove that innovative ways of communication and activism through ICT are strongly re-shaping social interaction, learning approach as well as general perspective of life’s expectations and values. Elderly facing the digital gap and assessing the youth can still feel useful and updated within the society, and youth can learn perspectives in values and can be inspired
to discover their job preferences since they become teachers and get to know ICT from another point of view. In addition, the interaction itself hopes to be a great benefit for both target group and from a community vision, an important social improvement.
Our expected results: Employability, Personal Development and e-Inclusion
Our expected results could be:

Who are e-Facilitators in Europe ?
The e-Facilitators have a crucial task, not only as teachers of ICT, but also as socio-cultural
mediators. The project partnership "eScouts" will conduct a comparison study of these
profiles and about the available educational opportunities in their respective countries.
The goal will be to create a common professional profile in Europe.
