Training Course

Also mobile youth workers can support local networks of stakeholders (ex. NGO, library, community and others) who provide non-formal education and youth work in their remote territory. There are several ways how to provide mobile youth work with young people in rural territories. This will be your chance to explore and to exchange many different possibilities and practices and to find which is relevant for your reality.
