BE MOBILE KIT is a tool for mobile youth workers, it helps organizations who just started or are planning to start their mobile youth work journey, it improves knowledge, shares good examples of mobile youth work activities and promotes creative thinking.

Aims of the tool

The cards were created in hopes to help organizations and youth workers who are starting out their mobile youth work journey. Their aim is to:
* improve knowledge of mobile work activities,
* share good examples of mobile youth work activities or some new possibilities, that youth workers can use in their working area,
* promotes creative thinking.

Description of the tool

BE MOBILE KIT has 64 cards divided in three parts:

*32 RESOURCE cards with pictures of things that are / can be used in mobile youth work. Members of the group each pull out one card, then are given 3 min. time to come up with an idea of a mobile work activity (it can be a used one or a new one). Each present to others the created activity, they vote who has the most creative / promising one. To make the creation process harder, everyone has to pull out two cards.

*16 SITUATION cards, each card contains a situation that has or could occur in mobile youth work. Each participant draws one card, they are given 3 min. time to come up with a solution. Each present to others the solution, they vote who has the most creative / promising one. To make the activity more interesting, the best solution can be played out as an improvisation theatre act.

*16 METHOD cards, each contains one mobile youth work activity or method. These cards are created to explore the possibilities of mobile youth work activities or ways of doing it. They work as a simple manual before going to the mobile work place - what to implement, what to take with. The can also be used to create discussions, each person can draw one card and discuss with others for whom, where this activity should be, what to take with, how to implement etc.

Also, this is a KIT, that can be used in the mobile work activity itself, played out with kids or youngsters to promote their creative thinking or give out knowledge of mobile work. Not only that, but if used by youth workers within one organization, it can create a discussion of how to improve their mobile youth work plan or use their recourses in a different way or in a different place - create diversity in activities.
