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

Target group: Youth workers, youth leaders working in youth centres or youth organisations of all levels (local to international), trainers and non-formal educators who are interested in digital education or in setting up projects on this topic, youth organisation managers from Erasmus+ Youth programme countries, Eastern Partnership countries

Team of Trainers: Dulio Santos (PT), Christina Schauer (AT), Alexandra Isaicul (MD), Jessica Reinsch (DE). NA officer involved Rita Bergstein (DE)

Training methods used & main activities

The training course consisted of an online and a residential part. The online days allowed for better needs analysis of the target group which laid the foundations for the residential programme.
During the residential part of the training, participants dived deeper into the topic of digital transformation in youth work, shared and explored different digital tools and began developing follow-up projects that could be implemented in their local contexts.

Outcomes of the activity

Participants took home knowledge about and skills in digital tools that can be used in their daily youth work. Together in small groups they invented a specific tool or a content based activity related to the topic of digital transformation.
