As a result of the work carried out within the European Youth Empowerment Research Project (EYERP) a final edition of the User’s Guide for Youth Empowerment Practitioners and Beginners is published.

Aims of the tool

The European Youth Empowerment Research Project (EYERP) is funded by the “Youth in Action” programme of the European Union and aimed at carrying out the research on empirical methods and approaches on Empowerment, and Entrepreneurial Thinking and Acting that could improve and enrich youth work practice in Europe, as well as to support and involve youngsters to become more active and independent.
Our goal was to produce a simple and coherent Guide, or a “Cookbook” for youth workers, practitioners, as well as beginners, with chapters that provide new methods and tools on youth empowerment and participation. We also wanted to illustrate that the work of the EYERP in the empowerment dimension is part of a process – a process that connects what has been achieved in the past with the present, which in turn prepares the ground for the future.

Description of the tool

The European Youth Empowerment Research Project (EYERP)
Lead partner: Plattform e.V., Germany
Project period: 2013-2014
Partners:
aha – Tipps & Infos für junge Leute (Austria);
invo – Service für Kinder- und Jugendbeteiligung – Service for Children and Youth Participation (Austria);
KERIC (Slovakia);
YUPI – Youth Union of People with Initiative (Portugal)

This User’s Guide reflects the diversity of issues we have taken over in this process, that could improve and enrich youth work practice in Europe, as well as support and involve youngsters to become more active and independent. Basically, this User’s Guide investigates which approaches and methods can empower young people compared to others, which are particularly effective and whether they can be converted into practical tools and delivery methods. We hope that you will find it useful.
