Conference Digital Youth Work

Dates: 27-30 November 2017

Venue: Vienna, Austria

Eligible are 100 youth participants coming from: Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme countriesPartner Countries Neighbouring the EU

Application deadline: 5th October 2017

The Conference will bring togehter 100 – 120 youth workers and youth work stakeholders from Europe and create a space to examine the concept of digital youth work from diverse angles.

General Description

The conference will inform about current developments on EU-Level, present concrete practice, enable participants to get a hands-on-experience on tools that are useful for their daily work and reflect on the role of youth workers in a digital world.

Above all it strives to demonstrate that digital youth work is fun (for young people and youth workers alike) and ignite the digital spark in participants.

Main Objectives:

  • To familiarise with and understand better digital youth work approaches
  • To learn practical examples of digital youth work
  • To exchange and practice digital tools for youth work
  • To reflect youth worker’s role in relation to digital approaches
  • To prepare participants to introduce digital approaches to their youth work practice

We are looking for participants who

  • Work with young people and/or youth work organisations as youth leader, youth worker, trainer, mentor and coach
  • are open and ready to introduce digital approaches to youth work practice
  • Can introduce new ideas both to their superiors and to the grass-root level colleagues
  • Are over 18+
  • Are able to learn and work in English

This project is to teach youth workers and young leaders who work with youth with diverse cultural background how to encourage their beneficiaries how to interact more by creating and sharing their digital stories.

Everyone has a story to tell, and those digital stories are always very powerful, since in many case they describe very important issues, such as violence, discrimination or a struggle to find one’s place in the society.

Developing projects that are based on new methods and approaches seems to be especially important for those youth workers who are dealing with difficult social issues, as they very often lack proper and effective tools to address their beneficiaries.
