The training course consists of elements of study visit and partnership-building activities. It offers a space to share best practices and approaches of anti-racist and inclusive work, and build partnerships among actors committed to equity in youth work.

Do you want to strengthen your knowledge of anti-racism, inclusion, and equality in the field of youth work? Are you looking forward to building new sustainable and engaging partnerships? Do you want to learn and share your methods of the listed topics? Are you ready to contemplate and assess your work and youth work practices critically and challenge yourself to learn more?  

The objectives of the training course:  

We aim to provide a collective opportunity to share and strengthen understanding of racism, inequality, and power structures in the youth work field as well as a phenomenon in societal structures. The content also covers critical reflection and introduces anti-racist and inclusive activities and methods to the participants. We aim to enable opportunities for impactful discussions, reflection, study visits and the exchange of the best practices among participants. We aim to increase awareness on the topics of racism, inequality and their structural impact, and to build strong, engaging partnerships for future co-operation.

The participants will gain knowledge and strengthen their key competences in anti-racist youth work and inclusion.
