Young People and Extremism Resource Packs

Get theoretical and practical support, information and insights - for youth workers, policy-makers, youth and education practitioners and organisations responding to the risks of radicalisation and extremism.

This resource pack offers ideas, examples and practical techniques through which youth workers, community workers and policymakers can engage with challenging questions and better understand the context young people are living in.

It explores the role of youth work in responding to the risks to young people from different forms of extremism. Alongside each section, there are questions to aid critical reflection and help you think about the best way to apply these ideas in your context and with the young people you work with.

The pack also includes a number of case studies (showing how some of these techniques have been put into practice) and tools and practical ideas you can implement in your own work.

Additional material

This second ressource pack includes additional exercises and tools that youth workers can use together with young people to explore a wide range of themes including identity, values, intercultural understanding and diversity, belonging and community and conflict resolution.

It also includes inspirational case studies which highlight some of the approaches referred to in the main resource such as active citizenship, mentoring and peer education.

This resource pack builds on the training events organised by SALTO Cultural Diversity, with Erasmus+ National Agencies, in 2016. Reproduction and use for non-commercial purposes is permitted provided the source is mentioned and is notified.
