SALTO TC No Offence 2006

A Training Course for youth workers (social workers, peer educators,...) working with young ex-offenders, offenders who are currently in prison or youth at risk of offending - about how to use the European YOUTH programme as a tool to create meaningful projects for this target group.

Dates & Venue

  • This course took place in Belgium (Oostduinkerke) from 4 till 10 of April 2006.


The SALTO No Offence Training Course aimed to increase the use of the European YOUTH programme in the youth work with young ex-offenders, young people in prison and young people at risk of offending.


No Offence Booklet

One of the direct outcomes of the TC No Offence was the No Offence booklet based on the Training Course. This way youth workers that did not have the chance to participate in the course can still benefit from the methods and content developed in the TC No Offence
