Developing innovative non-formal education approaches between youth work and its collaborative partners to include young people with disadvantaged backgrounds in local society. Youth Work Expert Meeting with project visits
Youth Work Expert Meeting on the innovative role of municipal youth work in partnership with education, employment and social welfare. Developing innovative non-formal education approaches between youth work and its collaborative partners to include young people with disadvantaged backgrounds in local society Main topics How can municipal youth work innovate to further support young people with disadvantaged backgrounds to improve their opportunities in education, work, (health-)care, income, housing and leisure time? What is needed to strengthen collaboration between youth policy, youth work, young people and other sectors like education, businesses and social work? How can we co-create innovative non-formal education approaches between all partners and which are the main factors of success in the triangle of youth policy, youth work and its collaborative partners (in conditions and methods)? How can we develop co-productive approaches between young people, youth workers and youth policy makers to this end? Who should have which role? Participants’ profile In this TCA activity we want to gather representatives of municipalities and youth work professionals of those countries or regions where youth work is the responsibility of municipalities. We invite pairs of experts from the same town being a: 1. local youth policy representative (in either youth, social, education and/or employment policies, depending on the local organizational structure of the municipality), working within the municipality 2. local professional youth work manager or senior professional working with and for young people with disadvantaged backgrounds and fewer opportunities (in social support or care, out of employment, risk of school dropout etc.) They should already work together within their own local setting, have expertise in above-mentioned fields and with young people with disadvantaged backgrounds and be able to work together after the seminar in order to implement the lessons learnt. Objectives: * To learn how municipal youth work and local youth policy ánd young people relate to each other and share experiences * To learn about the role of youth work in connecting with other sectors in different European municipalities/countries * To exchange opportunities and challenges in local youth work in partnerships with schools, social work, employment offices and businesses and possible other work sectors involved * To develop a set of success factors (and possible risks) to develop further collaboration between youth work, youth policy makers, young people and other sectors; * To explore principles for innovative non-formal education approaches between youth work, education and employment and the required conditions.
