Training Course

22-31 May 2020 | Poland

LET ME IN - Youth workers for inclusive Europe. The methods of participatory photography and digital storytelling will be used.

The context

In societies that are getting more and more divided, there is a constant need to find new solutions to enhance inclusion of groups at risk. We as youth workers often lack capacities to reach out to vulnerable people and even if we do approach them, we do not possess proper methodologies to address their specific needs effectively.
Let Me In is an Erasmus+ training course for youth workers (KA1) that aims at raising the awareness on the specifics of working with different groups at risk, with the main focus being on how to identify their needs and create a safe space for them to express themselves more freely. By combining theory and practice we strive to give participants an in-depth overview on the topic of enhancing social inclusion and prepare them to organize their own projects in a more efficient way that puts the needs of young people in the center.

The methods
The methods of participatory photography and digital storytelling are based on assumption that everyone`s voice matters, people are experts on their own lives and that y using simple photography and video techniques they can raise issues that are important for their communities and act to make a real change. Participatory art methods is empowering young people and giving them voice that can help them undertake action. The concrete digital skills related to digital storytelling and participatory photography will be introduced to a comprehensive methodology on the use of these tools in the context of youth work.
