General Description

The II International Conference focusing on the theme of “Creating Sustainable Youth Policies at Local Level” – youth policies and youth work at Municipality Level, with a specific focus on inclusion (NEETs, migrants, youth at risk and marginalized youth) comes in the follow up of several European guidelines that have been recently established highlighting the importance to mainstream youth at local and regional level that have identified the need to tackle these issues at grassroots.

However, to be able to find effective paths for this direction to be taken, and to keep improving impact and outreach of our activities, stakeholders need to meet, discuss, reflect, exchange practices and develop their competence to work together on such themes.

The Conference is the flagship event for youth workers, youth leaders, young people and public officers from local and regional authorities that work with youth in their local realities. They will come together for 4 days to share debate and discuss about key policy fields to find ways to improve youth work at municipality level and increase youth participation on policy making at local and regional level.

Objectives:
– To develop the capacity of Local Authorities (LA) and Civil Society Organizations (CSO) and their youth workers to work together on the field of youth public policy to provide answers to the challenges of participation, inclusion, unemployment
– To identify and promote good practices and mechanisms for youth participation in decision-making and debate about their potential and challenges on public governance
– To share practices of inclusion and engagement of young people at local level
– To develop more inclusive approaches to foster participation of young people with fewer opportunities into spaces such as local youth councils and youth fora
– To allow youth CSO and LA to share their best practices in terms of cooperation between local authorities and civil society, with a specific focus on how to target NEET youth, young migrants and other marginalized youth

The conference will held the II Assembly of Members and Partners of DYPALL Network. This meeting will allow for all the members and partners of DYPALL Network to gather and work on the future network priorities, discuss on how to mainstream our network values, objectives and work, deepening the connection among stakeholders working in the field of youth work and youth participation in different dimensions, levels and spheres.

Participants’ Profile 
The Conference will be a space for learning, development of competences, dialogue and sharing of experiences among 50 international participants with the following profile:
– Municipality representatives working in either youth, social, education and/or employment policies
– Local professional youth work manager or senior professional working with and for young people, especially youth from vulnerable/marginalized backgrounds and fewer opportunities (unemployed, NEETs, migrants, etc.

We would like to carry out project to address the problem of inclusion of refugees in non-formal education context in youth work while create synergies among the participating organizations to future cooperation for the inclusive education methods.

General Description

The refugee population is, mainly, made by young people aged between 13-30; in Turkey the percentage is more then 75%. Most of those young people have to be educated to prevent marginalization; in parallel to this issue there are no opportunities for those young refugees to participate to education processes in the Youth Works.

In additional, youth workers/leaders are not competent enough to provide educational opportunities in EU and neighboring countries, especially in places like Turkey and Greece.

The methods used during the TC:

The methodology of the training will be based on the non-formal education methods such as:

  • role-plays,
  • case studies and group work;

there will be a space for participants’ to try out their own methods.

The participants will become aware about the refugee situation in their countries and in EU general therefore they will be able to take initiative towards those issues in their local communities.

Participating in the project, it will motivate them, in their work, as they are working in their local communities as youth workers therefore they will be acting as change makers.
In the long run, potential benefits of the project:

– Racism and xenophobia towards refugees and young people with migration background will be decreased.
– Educational services (in youth work) for refugees and young people with migration background will be increased.

Objectives of the training course:
Thus, the project proposal aims to strengthen the competences of youth workers and youth leaders in finding proper approaches for fostering the inclusion of refugees it also marginalized young people with migration background.

More specifically the projects’ objectives are:
– To strengthen the understanding of inclusion and its challenges for young refugees and young people with migration background.
– To create strategies on youth work context, to improve the quality of youth services developed for refugees and young people with migration background.
– To explore the role of youth work in inclusion strategies on educational services.

Venue: De Glind, Netherlands

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme countriesEastern Partnership countriesWestern Balkan countries

Application deadline: 10th December 2018

This trainer skills workshop (TSW) intends to expand trainers’ toolkits with reflective approaches and to equip them with the skills to plan and implement reflection as part of the learning processes.

General Description

This trainer skills workshop (TWS) intends to expand trainers’ toolkits with reflective approaches and to equip them with the skills to plan and implement reflection as part of the learning processes.

The Trainer Skills Workshop on the Art to Reflect will focus on:
– Practical skills to support participants with valuing and using reflection as an essential part of learning;

– Knowledge and Awareness of designing and delivering effective reflection sessions, adjusted to various learning environments and educational approaches;
– Supporting learners in reflective space and practice in the context of the European Training Strategy (ETS) – in the field of youth.

Participants will get the possibility to:
– Explore the competence area of “Learning to learn” in the ETS Competence Model for Trainers and its interconnectedness with other Competence areas;
– Share experiences and creative methods of individual and group reflection processes during training courses and related learning activities;
– Linking this reflective experience to participants’ training practices;
– Experience a variety of individual reflection and reflection groups;
– Self-reflect: the trainer as learner (individual and within the team).

Trainer Skill Workshops (TSW) are offered twice a year as part of a strategic long-term cooperation between NAs and SALTO T&C RC, coordinating European training offers for trainers.

It supports advanced trainers exploring a certain area of trainer work and related competences of the ETS Competence Model for Trainers. In the context of TSWs, advanced means that the trainer-learner has the capacity to reflect on their practice as a trainer. This also implies a capacity for [self] assessment.

Target Group & Team of Trainers (TSWs): are targeting trainers who already have a long-term experience with training in the field of youth. We do not wish to set a strict minimum number of years of experience or a number of training courses but rather focus on the need for applicants to have the capacity to reflect on their practice as trainers, which generally require several years of regular practice. The training activity is for trainers who wish to develop their competence with regard to particular areas/skills and transfer the learning to their youth work practice.

Context: This Activity is organized by the “Trainer Competence Development” project:             The Austrian, Dutch, Czech, Estonian, German, Irish, Polish, Slovenian and Spanish Erasmus+ Youth National Agencies together with the SALTO Training and Cooperation RC develop and carry out this long-term NA strategic partnership project.

Supporting the competence development of trainers is an important aspect to ensure the high quality of youth worker trainings in Europe. The ETS therefore calls for the development of a modular system to train the trainers of youth workers by defining a set of essential competences that can be acquired in specific courses and serve to establish a pool of certified trainers in Europe.

SALTO T&C RC keeps this subject on its agenda and develops projects in cooperation with NAs and other stakeholders.

  • The team of this TSW is composed of Gabi Steinprinz and Joanna Wrońska.
  • This activity and venue place are accessible to people with disabilities.
  • Note: arrivals are expected on the 26th of February evening and departures on the 1st of March after lunch.
