Youth work reality is changing quite fast in Europe today. Where nowadays more then ever youth work and youth workers have assumed a central role on the development of young people skills, knowledge and attitudes. Nevertheless, for youth workers to be able to acquire such role they need to be constantly updated and to share new approaches and tools that can increase the impact of their work.

Equipping youth workers with conceptual models and practical tools to better support young people throughout their personal and professional development based on maximizing the learning obtain by European mobility opportunities and programmes.

The course will also allow to have a deeper look on the role that youth work is having on the pos-Covid19 impact and recovery in terms of answers to support young people, organizations and communities in this difficult times in the south of Europe.

This 4 days training course will offer to participants an intense learning experienced based on a programme balanced between theoretical knowledge and practical experiences based on non-formal education methods, peer learning and experiential learning exercises.

With this training course we aim to:

  • To support youth workers to be better equipped to enhance the impact that learning mobilities can have on young people and on their local communities and organizations;
  • To be able to identify and self assess the specific competences that are needed to support quality development on learning mobility (based on the European Competences Model for Youth Workers);
  • To discuss the role of youth workers on the postcovid19 recovery process, specifically looking on paths to rebuild trust among young people, organizations and communities on the learning mobility programmes;
  • To be able to acquire knowledge on key European policy developments and to bring such developments into their practices (New EU Youth Strategy, the European Training Strategy, the Youth Goals, Democracy Reloading, Europe Goes Local, among other processes and initiatives);
  • To allow participants to acquire and get in touch with tools that are supporting young people to enhance their learning experiences in the framework of European educational mobility programmes;
  • To increase the quality and impact of projects developed in the framework of future Erasmus+ Programme and the future of European Solidarity Corps Programme;
  • Support the quality of youth work in southern countries, the networking and the development of future cooperation projects in the region.

OUTCOMES:

The training course will also allow to produce a booklet containing conceptual models and practical tools that youth workers can use to better support young people throughout their personal and professional development based on maximizing the learning obtain by European mobility opportunities and programmes.

These models and tools will be collected based on the realities of the different organizations participating in the training course. But will also gather resources from other organizations that have been working with the programme for many years. And that have develop specific tools to help to maximize the volunteers learning and the organizational and community impact during their mobility projects.
