Volunteering is my superpower

Teaching Course: Equipping youth workers with skills, competences and methods needed for transferring values to prevent violent radicalization of young people

In European countries we can clearly observe a high degree of radicalization of young people and the fact that they are putting a question mark on the values that stood at the basis of the construction of united, peaceful Europe. Also the European Commission draws attention to that topic, putting focus on it in thematic priorities of the Erasmus + Programme. This is due to the declaration of the Council of the EU and the Commissioner Tibor Navracsics signed 17 March 2015 in Paris on the need to increase the number of the Union's actions against the radicalization of young people and projects on common values. Earlier, in 2014 DG for Home Affairs has prepared a special report on radicalization of youth. Extraordinary situations require extraordinary tools for youth work. This project through training youth worker on using volunteering as a youth work tool is providing such.

Build professional development of youth workers, through the implementation of a training course and building capacity of participating organizations on the topic of equipping youth workers with volunteer management skills, competences and methods needed for transferring the common fundamental values of our society and preventing violent radicalization of young people especially those who are marginalized as well as young migrants.
