General Description

Discuss, strengthen & develop “the model” for a sustainable youth NGO by focusing on topics such as organizational identity, organizational structure, project & activity planning, source management and sustainability.

The Idea:
This projects outline was created after a research and observation on today’s youth NGOs. We had many chances to discuss about the problems of civil society works with people who are active youth workers (managers, members, leaders, volunteers) in several platforms. One of the most common problem that we face is difficulties of achieving intended impacts and acting sustainable.

The conclusion was: lack of organizational planning & management & development skills in the youth organizations and NGOs. This problem creates a huge barrier between NGO and it’s stakeholders in terms of efficiency. For that reason we’ve chosen to focus mainly on “effective NGO and organizational identity”, “organizational structure”, “activity planning”, “sustainability” and to the other related skills that we believe the milestones of organizational management & development.

Apart from the activities such as communication, group building, youth-pass related; each of these subjects will go on with the approach of experiential learning tools and methods such as case studies, simulations, working groups, brainstormings and presentations.

Training Course: Entrepreneurship goes social

Dates: 14-23 November 2017

Venue: Wisla, Poland

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Croatia, FYROM, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Spain

Application deadline: 25th September 2017

The main aim of the TC is to prepare youth workers who promote entrepreneurship among youth, to include elements of Social Economy in their activities, as well as to create a Tool Kit with methods and tools for that purpose.

General Description

The training for youth workers “Entrepreneurship goes social” will take place from 15th -22th November 2017 in Wisła, Poland. It will be attended by 24 participants from 12 countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Spain, Lithuania, FYROM, Malta Germany, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Hungary.

Promoting and developing entrepreneurship among young people is undoubtedly a very important issue nowadays. Unfortunately, many organizations active in the field of promotion of entrepreneurship, do not include subjects related to Social Economy (SE) in the scope of their activities.

This is a huge loss as inclusion of Social Economy in informal education devoted to promotion of entrepreneurship, could have very positive results. Why?

– This will allow the concept and definition of “traditional” entrepreneurship to be extended by social components, which are very often ignored in the ‘traditional’ meaning of entrepreneurship. It would enable young people to learn about SE as one of the opportunities for growth, employment and career path.
– SE can bring tremendous benefits especially in the field of work with young people with fewer opportunities – SE is based on creating opportunities and developing the potential of people and social groups that would most likely not have the chance to develop personally and professionally in conventional labor market conditions.
– Promoting SE allows to promote values that are important to society, such as tolerance and respect for diversity, “imperfections” of others (SE includes persons with disabilities); it raises awareness of other members of the community, promotes to care for the common good of the local communities etc.)

Inclusion of Social Economy in non-formal education will not only contribute for more effective integration of young people into the labor market (especially those with fewer opportunities), but also for changing attitudes of young people by communicating the specific values of Social Economy.

In order to make full use of the opportunities offered by the inclusion of aspects of SE in the promotion of entrepreneurship among young people, it is essential to develop knowledge and skills of youth workers.

Taking into account the above, the “Entrepreneurship goes social” training has the following objectives:

– To equip youth workers with knowledge about SE;
– To develop the participants’ practical skills for the involving SE in their educational activities in the field of entrepreneurship;

– To jointly discuss and define how SE can be used to minimize the causes and effects of youth unemployment in the participants’ local communities (especially in the context of young people with fewer opportunities);
– To raise participants’ awareness of how non-formal education can influence and change attitudes of young people;
– To create a network of organizations and youth workers that interested in active use of the opportunities offered by the inclusion of SE in informal education about entrepreneurship;
– To develop ideas for future activities and project in this field.

PBA: International seminar on sustainable development and Mediterranean citizenship in the field of youth

Dates: 23-30 November 2017

Venue: Marseille, France

Eligible are 10 (max per country) participants coming from: Algeria, BRAZIL, Croatia, Egypt, Georgia, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Morocco, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey

Application deadline: 30th September 2017

Exchange of practices and experiences working in the youth field, for social workers and educators to contribute to a greater intercultural understanding by showing the influences of the European migration waves across time through artistic education.

General Description

Les Apprentis de l’Espérance: based in Paris in 1986, now installed in Marseille. A community of craftsmen, artists and volunteer educators, we are all united by our common belief in cultural and human diversity, wishing to promote mutual respect. We are encouraged by the UNESCO in our intercultural process since 1989.

Through creative workshops, meetings and intercultural exchanges, we want to help the social and professional integration of young people involved in the implementation of different projects. We are dedicated to foster international solidarity and sustainable development, using an alternative educational method, recognizing our cultural identity and citizenship, based on art and crafts, sports, audio-visual and new technologies.

Join this International seminar on sustainable development and Mediterranean citizenshiop in the field of youth called « Université populaire – Citoyenneté en méditerannée ».
In a nutshell, the “Université populaire” aims to contribute to a greater intercultural understanding for youth workers who want to improve their competences to work with and for young people, to share experiences applying youth work at home, and sometimes also want to make contacts for common future projects.

Our project is like a laboratory where art and social action fuse and generate evidences of the importance of arts and sport as vectors of democracy. These days will explore and focus positive experiences and practices on the five pillars of the Agenda 21: health, education, culture, environment and human rights.

We also would like to highlight and insist on women’s role and responsibility in the education of the future generations, the protection of the environmental protection and the cultivation of peaceful relations.

The idea is to focus on some of our local and international current issues in order to bring to the forefront greater human rights issues which we consider as the most important to address through the involvement of young workers in an open debate.
The event will take place in Marseille: European Culture Capital in 2013 and European Sport Capital in 2017.

The Project

You can find a detailed description of the overall project in the appendix.
This manifestation is based on an open debate, and workshops in a multilateral exchange between young people, and social workers.

Participants would bring their own testimony about their experiences on projects they were / are developing in their country about the Mediterranean cultures, to develop an ensemble of skills.

The project and its non-formal educational practices are intended to become a vehicle to express our social objectives, which are the following:
– Encourage civic participation, concerned by status quo of international community
– Emphasize the value of intercultural diversity and trigger curiosity about the various country’s traditions in relation to what they have in common: their proximity with the Mediterranean Sea
– Inspire a debate about citizenship focusing on the principle of solidarity
– Establish a range of solid international partnerships
– Promote democracy, freedom of speech and open debate

Please note that should you be interested to get involved in the larger framework of the project but can’t take part in this seminar, there are other ways to be involved, as described in the annee.

Suggested programme elements for this 2nd “Université Populaire”: We aim to create a dynamic week of creative collaborative production to improve social work.

Before and after the seminar meetings with others social youth workers and technical partners, workshops and evaluations of exchanges. Visit of the city of Marseille.
The seminar is recommended primarily for youth workers, trainers, youth leaders, project managers, EVS mentors/tutors.

The number of participants is limited to 10 people per country. The list of eligible countries: Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Turkey, and partner countries neighbouring the EU as listed in the Erasmus+ programme.

What we want to hear from each Youth Worker?

We would be glad to hear about your methodology, the subject/themes you’d be willing, interested to address regarding cultural diversity, transmission of traditions and immaterial knowledge, women’s participation, public health, bio-diversity and protection of the environment.

We’d like to create a safe place of vivid discussion where participants can freely share their views so we can better understand each other’s realities.
We also hope that by giving visibility to third parties involved we could help everyone to get financial help (sponsoring), if necessary.
