Intersectionality in Youthwork

Training Course

27 November - 1 December 2023 | Reykjavik, Iceland

This training course is for youth workers and municipal youth officers who want to learn more about intersectionality and how to embed this further in their practices. Join us and become an ambassador of Intersectionality!

Aims and Objectives 

This training course is about developing an intersectional practice as a youth worker/ municipal youth officer. This requires you to not only be equipped with practical tools and theoretical perspectives but also to dive deeper into your own personal understanding of yourselves and those you work with. During this training there will be space for you to develop a reflective approach, and to get to explore your identity and reality, as well as develop a critical perspective towards your work.   

Main aim: 

To empower participants in transforming their youth work approaches based on the concepts and practice of intersectionality.  


  • To gain a basic understanding of what is intersectionality as well as other relevant concepts 
  • To explore Intersectionality from a personal perspective by understanding your own intersectional identities 
  • To share and exchange local realities and experiences of the participating organizations 
  • To explore tools and practices on the topic of intersectionality 

Methodology: During the training course we will use English as the main language.We will use non formal education and experiential learning methods, with a great focus on self-reflection. 

Participants and expectations 

The activity is a closed cooperation between the National Agencies of Austria, Belgium-Flanders, Iceland and The Netherlands. We aim for approximately 20 participants from these countries. 

Target group: 

  • Youth work organizations 
  • Municipal youth officers  

We look for participants who work in a youth work organization or on the municipality level (youth service) and who are directly involved in working with young people.  

This training would be most useful for participants who are willing and able to put the learned lessons into practice and try out some of these approaches with their young people to further develop their skills.  

We will work with the reality of participants, their organizations, and their experiences on intersectionality, and build further from those experiences. We expect a high level of participatory approaches, to which all will be invited to share and contribute. You don’t need to already have a full understanding of intersectionality, but to be able to reflect on your reality and practice of youth work. 

If you are worried about accessibility during this training, or need any accomodation to make your participation possible, don’t hesitate to write us.
