ALL IN project “definition” of Inclusion:
Inclusion is the conscious and purposeful creation of an intersectional environment in which every person is valued, connected and engaged. People have control of their own support and making their own decisions.

That means everybody gets the support they need in the way they want it. When people choose to participate, they do so without experiencing restrictions or limitations of any kind, including prejudice and discrimination.

To achieve inclusion, we must consistently disrupt traditionally accepted constructions. This means being open and willing to challenge and change our own behaviours and views, as well as the spaces and organisations around us.

Aim and Programme Elements

We aim at empowering and building up the competences of educational practitioners to design, facilitate and evaluate meaningful educational activities in inclusive youth work, especially with and for marginalized youth:

exclusion, inclusion, participation: what groups and individuals are we talking about? What do we want to reach with & for them, and how?

learning and non-formal education: approaches, conditions, models, factors, processes

meeting the needs of inclusion groups: matching of target group ↔ needs ↔ objectives ↔ methodology, how to ensure impact & relevance

practical tools and methods: for the design, facilitation & assessment of educational activities

creation & testing: of own educational modules with/in front of group

practice in feedback: empathy, coaching & communication skills

hot issues: common challenges and best practices in educational inclusive youth work

role(s): context, ethics & competences of youth workers and inclusion workers in an educational context

self-assessment: coaching & professional development plan

partnership-building and the development of follow-up activities

Profile of Participants

For participation in the this training course we are targeting youth workers, inclusion workers, educators and people actively involved in inclusive youth work. The most important criteria is that participants be in an educational position (eg facilitators, work camp leaders, trainers, group leaders, coaches etc).

Participants must be aged 18+ and be residents in the country of the nominating partner organisation. Participants should be fluent in english, and be willing and committed to work hard (about 9 hours per day at least). Participants should furthermore commit to carry out agreed preparatory tasks and be willing to follow-up on the training course via active youth work, ideally in co-operation with their sending/partner organisation.

Context and about us:

“Hugarafl”, an Icelandic term which translates in english into “Mindpower”, is a recovery centre for people who have experienced mental health challenges and who are now working hard on improving their situation, in a spirit of empowerment and self-determination.

In Mindpower, professionals are working side by side with experts by experience on equal bases and by peer to peer support. The main idea is to avoid the usual victimization and dis-empowerment of people with mental health issues, by instead truly empowering them for self-determination and equal participation. In Mindpower we have a strong youth chapter called “Youngminds”, who has in the past years also developed international activities, often with the support of Erasmus+.

Training Course: DocuSpeech Against Hate Speech

Dates: 1 December 2018 – 1 June 2019

Venue: Luxembourg, Armenia

Eligible are 27 participants coming from: Armenia, Georgia, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russian Federation

Application deadline: 30th June 2018

The project “DocuSpeech against Hate Speech” (training course and seminar) on promotion of human rights education through the documentary movies is made by and for the youth workers.

General Description

The project “DocuSpeech against Hate Speech” (training course and seminar) on promotion of human rights education through the documentary movies is made by the youth workers.

We chose the film-making as a strategic tool for the youth workers as more and more in the education of young people are being used media tools to decrease intolerance/hate speech. Film and especially documentary films help us expand our world, introducing us to values, struggles, innovations, and beliefs beyond our daily experience.

Today, the short form documentary has filled a key role in both formal education and non-formal education. One of the strategies that youth workers/educators use short documentary films in a meaningful and compelling way for young people is building social and emotional awareness on issues of intolerance and discrimination.

Meanwhile, despite of existence of the legislative background of protection of minorities, still there is evidence of growing cases of intolerance and discrimination within European society, sometimes even tolerated by the governments, a sad reality highlighted in reports of local/international organisations. Many of the hate speech/intolerance cases reported over the Europe are taking place on the Internet. This means that especially young people are being targeted as main users of the internet.

Our aim is to use the same tool but to promote tolerance instead of hate. The project can become a step-in creation of the tools to decrease the level of aggression and intolerance through the civil society organizations/youth workers not only in the involved countries but also out of boarders of them as the video outcomes of the project will be promoted by all involved organizations.

Objectives of the Project
• To develop the competences of the participants to produce educational video materials to use in youth work to combat hate speech;
• To foster social inclusion especially of the young people with disabilities and fewer opportunities in general;
• To develop the competences of youth workers and youth leaders in making films in various formats;
• To develop non-formal framework for film-making as a tool for transformative learning;
• To promote understanding of the principles of democracy and participation and its influence on young people’s lives;
• To create 7-8 audiovisual tools (will be uploaded also on the SALTO toolbox), with the concept of educational documentary;
• To support the field presence of the European Commission in order to promote the values behind the institution.

Structure
The first activity: training course will take place in Luxembourg on 1-10 December 2018. It will gather 35 youth leaders, youth workers from the mentioned countries. During the first activity will be created educational video materials to use in youth work to combat hate speech.

Homework
During the second activity – seminar (25 May-1 June, 2019) will be analyzed the using of the educational video materials created during the first activity and used at the local projects as a homework. As an outcome of the project the team and the participants will prepare recommendations for the educators/trainers for using effectively video-making in human rights education.

Totalitarianism emerged in Europe by World War II as a popular type of governance seeking to promote state power and reduce the power of civilians. Totalitarian governments establish rigid rules and regulations for citizens, controlled all aspects of daily life by making education, banking and other key services fall under the control of the government. Roma were seen by the Nazis as being inferior, they were not as good a human being as the superior race.

General Description

Discrimination against the Roma, marginalization and ostracism are still prevalent in today’s Europe.

Methodology

The methods of this seminar will be forum theatre and non formal education. Forum and street theatre is often used by socially excluded and disempowered groups as interactive form of theatre that encourages audience interaction and explores different options for dealing with a problem or issue.

Through theatre we will give chance to youngsters to raise their own awareness about the Holocaust, elements of discrimination, denial of civic rights in the past and today towards the Roma.

The methodology is based on NFE methods: using manuals such as: Right to Remember, T-Kit-Social Inclusion, Compass etc. groups work, brainstorming, wall writing, association game, discussion, debate, simulation, audiovisual techniques

Aim and Objectives

The aim of the training is to build capacity of youth workers and activists about the Roma past, mainly for Roma Holocaust and Human rights education and Roma present, mainly for discrimination and access to social rights.

To reach the general aim of the TC, the objectives are:

• Learn Forum Theater and Human Rights Education in context of Roma past and present
• Promote tolerance and equality through reflecting upon the European values and European identity;
• Roma and non-Roma volunteers and activists, sharing their grassroots engagement
and practices relating to Roma inclusion;

Profile of the Participants

Present will be Roma and non-Roma youth leaders, activists, multipliers, and volunteers who are working with young and/or Roma youth.

Participants must also:

• be familiar with the situation and challenges of the Roma community in their country
• be motivated to develop their competences in advocacy, anti-discrimination work, human rights and to share their experiences with other participants
• be aged 18 +
• be committed to attend for the full duration of the course

Did you know you can organise international youth projects for your young people from disadvantaged backgrounds? Come and discover what Erasmus+ Youth can do for you and the young people you work with.

General Description

Get a taste of Youth Mobility Projects.

In only 3 working days, we show you the possibilities Erasmus+ Youth has to offer young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. An international youth project (youth exchange, voluntary service,…) might just be the life-changing opportunity for the disadvantaged young people you are working with: e.g. those from minority backgrounds, with special needs, with socio-economic difficulties, discriminated groups, in difficult situations, with limited opportunities.

This Mobility Taster course gives you concrete examples of what is possible, brings you in contact with other inclusion youth organisations, shows you what funding is available specifically for youth inclusion projects and walks you step-by-step through the process in case you would like to give it a try.

Who is the Course for?

* This course is for NEWCOMERS to Erasmus+ Youth who are directly working with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds (e.g. youth worker, social worker, refugee workers,…).
* If you NEVER organised an international youth project with your target group before and would like to know what is possible, then this course is for you!
* If you ALREADY HAVE organised mobility projects for young people, please check the European Training Calendar for a more appropriate youth work training because this Mobility Taster is for NEWCOMERS
* This course is not for school-related activities such as school exchanges or projects for pupils (please contact the Lifelong Learning colleagues of Erasmus+ for this).

This course welcomes applicants with special needs (contact SALTO Inclusion representativetony@salto-youth.net to ask about support possibilities).

How to Apply

Before applying check briefly with the Erasmus+ Youth National Agency in your country if they can send you to the Mobility Taster course in Ireland from 25-29 September 2018 (and reimburse your travel).

– If so, register online and submit your application form

Training Course: A school of HANDICAP from discrimination to
inclusion and social participation

Dates: 16 – 24 July 2018

Venue: Paris, France

Eligible are 2 participants coming from: Greece

and Involves 21 participants coming from: France, Italy, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Greece, Slovakia

Application deadline: 10th June 2018

This project will bring together 21 participants mainly youth workers, youth leaders or association leaders. The training will take place from 16 to 24 July 2018 in Paris, France.

Description

“One in seven people have some form of disability”. From the beginning, physical disability has been perceived as an attribute of the person: she is disabled, she has Down syndrome … which defines and outlines the expected behaviours of these people.

These discriminatory practices of people, may attribute some certain particularities especially in those cases that there is insufficient awareness about this social phenomena.

Young people have the opportunity to participate in youth exchanges or to volunteer for a period up to one year in another country. Youth workers can take part in training and networking activities abroad or spend some time in a youth organisation abroad in job shadowing.

In Article 1 of Human Rights, “all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights,” we realize that part of the population is in fact substantially discriminated against. Let’s take as an example, the case of people with physical mobilities or a person with mental disability, which is located at our neighbour just around the corner. We realize often that these people are not actively involved into the most ordinary activities of daily life or our modern societies.

This training course aims to:

– Examine barriers to participation and to help groups and young people to feel confident in taking part in Erasmus+ projects.
– Explore the areas of disability both Physical/Sensory and Intellectual in terms of supports for participation in International projects
– Provide the opportunity for partnerships to be created with a view to implementing future projects through Erasmus+

Common people do often attribute some labels to all these vulnerable groups. Some stereotypes or generalizations could be for example, lazy creeps, beggars etc. Normally, we see. Normally, we walk, we hear … But what is this principle which defines, normality into modern societies?

So, we tend to consider that when someone is disabled, we cannot become part of their daily life, because it could be harmful for their health conditions. In our mind, in modern culture, in our social system, there is a a correlation of these following terms: “disabled so fragile”, or “disabled therefore dangerous”; which can easily lead towards marginalisation and exclusion of disabled people, under the pretext of security.

This training project will bring together young leaders, youth workers and educators, who  wish to go deep into this issue. The plenary will try to tackle discriminatory effect, around people with disabilities. This Training Course will gain an informative momentum upon this social issue, for a better understanding of these discriminatory practises against people with mental or physical disabilities. Activities will be designed to be easily transferable to others. We will work to create information tools that can be used by associations and youth workers.

Target Audience: Youth Workers/ Youth work practitioners working directly with young people with disability (physical/sensory/intellectual) and from organisations who are in a position to implement/lead these projects.
