Study Visit on Talent Development of Young People in Disadvantaged Urban Areas

Study Visit

12-16 December 2011 | Utrecht, Leiden, Arnhem, Den Bosch, Netherlands

In this study visit we will gather 25 youth workers from all around Europe to exchange practices in talent development and to give an insight in how talent development is being used in the Netherlands.
Introduction Current youth work is more and more focused on talent development to stimulate social participation, empowerment and active citizenship among young people with less opportunities.. Youth in Action projects offers young people and youth workers plenty of opportunities to acquire new competences and to develop their talents. But.. does talent development has a positive effect on young people. Does it contribute to inclusion and participation in society? What’s the value of talent development? How can it look like and how does it work? What are the challenges? What do young people gain? Under which conditions? In this study visit we will gather 25 youth workers from all around Europe to exchange practices in talent development and to give an insight in how talent development is being used in the Netherlands. We will visit several organizations that work with talent development in disadvantaged urban areas. Various methods for developing talent and its value for youth work will be shown. Aim To give European youth workers insight in how talent development is implemented in Dutch youth work.
