European Citizenship in Youth Work

The European Citizenship in Youth Work Training Courses support youth workers and youth leaders in developing a critical understanding of European Citizenship. They are encouraged to integrate the topic into their practical work and to make use of opportunities provided to them by Erasmus+: Youth in Action.

The professional development of youth workers and youth leaders is supported by exploring and experiencing the potential of European Citizenship. Participants are enabled to recognise and integrate European Citizenship in their youth work.

The training course has five objectives:

  • critically explore the meaning, relevance and implications of European citizenship in youth work in all of its dimensions
  • promote and facilitate the active use of programmes and structures in support of youth work on European Citizenship, including Erasmus+: Youth in Action
  • experience and explore the potential of European Citizenship for active democratic change in society
  • make participants aware of the current discourse on European Citizenship (concepts, formal meanings and expressions)
  • exemplify the connection between European Citizenship, Human Rights, Democracy and Intercultural Learning and the underlying values

The SALTO T&C RC coordinates and monitors several training courses for European Citizenship in Youth Work on an annual basis. The training courses are hosted by Erasmus+: Youth in Action National Agencies and are implemented by the european trainers Nuno da Silva and Xavier Baro Urbea.
