Training Course on Inclusion & EVS 2001

How to use the YOUTH programme - and more specifically short-term European Voluntary Service - in the work with young people with less opportunities. Have a look at the course description and the outcomes of the course.

Dates & Venue

This SALTO course took place twice:

  • From 31 March to 8 April 2001
  • From 12 to 20 May 2001

Both courses took place in Antwerp, Belgium and were co-ordintated by the SALTO Inclusion Resource Centre.


The overall aim was to promote the inclusion of young people coming from disadvantaged backgrounds in the YOUTH programme - more specifically in (short term) EVS - and to enhance the quality of the projects with these target groups.
