3rd Contact Making Event "We will come together III - Disadvantaged youngsters in European youth projects" - 2015

The training activity took place
in Weimar, Germany
organised by Stiftung "Dr.Georg Haar" and EJBW-Europäische Jugendbildungs -und Begegnungsstätte Weimar (European Youth Education and Meeting Centre)
19th-25th of June 2015

Aims & objectives

The CME aims at supporting organisations from program countries from EU28 who are working on a daily basis with the
target group “youngsters with fewer opportunities” in implementing international mobility projects for socially
and individually disadvantaged youngsters within Erasmus+/Youth.

One of the main aspect of the CME was to learn more about the "Child and Family Care" systems of the participant's countries in Europe. This helped to identify different political answers to a social topic that societies are dealing with and to find ideas and alternatives to include more in Erasmus + youth projects the target group of the partner's organisations.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The countries who were represented during the CME are Bulgaria, Finland, France, Germany, Spain and The Netherlands.

The participants of the Contact-Making Event are experts who are working in specific institutions (as living
groups, institutions active in daily care for youth with difficulties, projects working with fixed groups, similar in-
stitutions) , means at first hand social workers, pedagogues, advisers, tutors as well as responsible persons from
the management.

The team was composed of:
- for the coordination : Sarah Zdun and Anna Kunze from Stiftung "Dr. Georg Haar" and Markus Rebitschek from EJBW
- for the trainers: Wolfgang Sieberth (Austria) and Margaux Richet (France/Germany)

Training methods used & main activities

The implemented activities are based on the principles and practices of non-formal education, in which needs,
motivation, interests and experiences of the learners are taken into consideration. Within the activities individu-
al learning and learning in groups are connected. Role-plays, simulations, exercises, group works and discussion
rounds are connected with theoretical inputs in order to achieve the biggest possible learning experience.

Outcomes of the activity

In a middle- and long term perspective cooperations for the time frame 2016 – 2018 in the frame of Erasmus+/
Youth are foreseen, as Youth Exchanges, EVS, mobilities for experts (as Training Courses, Study Visits, Job shado-
wing, development of strategic partnerships).

For instance and concretely a youth-exchange with a boat-trip aspect and a training course for youth workers working on a daily basis with “youngsters with fewer opportunities” are on their way to be realised next year.
