Training Course Every Pixel Tells a Story: Exploring Digital Methods for Youth Work

Dates: 16-24 November 2018

Venue: Poland

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Austria, Belarus, Denmark, Moldova

Application deadline: 17th October 2018

The proposed TC aims at bringing European youth workers together and teach them what digital storytelling is and how they can use it as a tool for working with young people with diverse cultural background.

General Description

During the project the participants will go through an intensive set of workshops giving them a chance to learn how to create their own digitalized stories. We believe that learning by doing will provide a deeper understanding of the method and therefore serve as an inspiration for creating similar projects in participants own communities.

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.

Objectives

– To provide participants with knowledge about the digital storytelling method and its possible benefits for youth work

– To equip them with skills necessary to design digital storytelling projects in their own communities

– To enhance participants ICT skills and encourage them to use open source technologies in their daily youth work

– To establish a network of like-minded organizations and individuals, who are interested in the further exchange on the topic of using digital methods for working with youth

– To develop follow-up projects using the skills and knowledge gained during this Training Course

Participant Profile

– Youth workers and youth leaders interested in exploring new ways of working with people with diverse cultural and/or migration background

– Motivated to learn more about the concept of digital storytelling (prior knowledge of photo/video making and editing is not required)

– Ready to use digital storytelling as a method of working with youth in their own communities

– Interested in setting further co-operation with similar organizations from other European countries

– Being able to communicate in English fluently

Cascais EYC2018 in cooperation with DYPALL Network is organizing the II DYPALL International Conference “Youth Work at Municipality Level” in Cascais, focusing on the theme of “Creating Sustainable Youth Policies at Local Level”-with a focus on inclusion.

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.

Whenever possible, these participants should preferentially have already worked together within their own local setting and be able to work together after the training in order to implement the lessons learnt and boost concrete and sustainable follow-up activities

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.

Training Course: ScribersHive Europe

Dates: 4-10 November 2018

Venue: St Albans, United Kingdom

Eligible are 27 participants coming from: Bulgaria, France, Poland, Romania, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 30th October 2018

ScribersHive Europe is an intercultural project using an innovative approach to develop journalism and creative media skills for young people. It will last for 12 months and involve activities in UK, Poland and participants’ home countries.

General Description

ScribersHive Europe is an intercultural project using an innovative approach to develop journalism and creative media skills for young people. It will last for 12 months and consists of the following phases:

• Training course in UK – November 2018
• Training course in Poland – April 2019
• Local activities in your own country – ongoing
• Dissemination (showcase) event in the UK – November 2019

The same participants should take part in all parts of the project.

This is important because all the activities are connected, so the final impact will be much greater when everyone has worked together for the whole year. This project will use the ScribersHive methodology to report and interpret cultural and social issues in different European countries.

The focus will be migrant or minority groups and how they relate socially and culturally to the majority / host society. The impact of the project will be to show how these issues are reported within each country; how they are “re-interpreted” by people in other countries; and how these reports can be influenced by stereotypes and cross-cultural prejudices.

ScibersHive involves 3 kinds of activities:

• Written journalism
• Graphics / comic strips
• Video or podcast production Every story will be represented in all 3 forms – but will move from one country to the next as it develops.

So for example, participants in France create a piece of written journalism. This is sent to the group in Poland, who will interpret it as a graphic. They send the graphic to Italy, where it is changed into a podcast.

How will the story change as it crosses national and cultural borders?

As a participant on this project you will:

• Learn how to use the ScribersHive methodology in practice
• Learn writing, graphic art, video and podcasting skills
• Develop your teamworking, communication, presentation and intercultural skills
• Understand the social and cultural issues affecting minorities

• Meet and get support from our highly experienced team of youth workers, trainers and media experts from You Press, Volunteer Centre Association (Poland) and Momentum World
• Visit London’s best known attractions as well as some less familiar and minority areas
• Visit the beautiful city of Kielce in Poland, and learn about graphic design in a country which is especially famous for this art form.
• Become a member of an international network of ScribersHive practitioners
• Take part in a public and VIP showcase event in London • Lead your own dissemination event in your country

All activities will be accredited with EU Youthpass.

Important Note: Participant selection will be carried out by project partners in each country. Applicants are not guaranteed a place.

Training Course: Mind Full Nest

Dates: 24 November – 3 December 2018

Venue: Cyprus

Eligible are 27 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Poland, Portugal, Romania

Application deadline: 25th September 2018

“Mind Full Nest” is a training course born to create a nest for every young person coming from refugee background. It aims at inspiring and equipping youth workers to work in a more meaningful way, by introducing the innovative element of mindfulness.

General Description

Description of the project “Mind Full Nest”: Each year millions of people are forced to leave their homes and seek refuge. Many of them arrive in Europe with the hope to live with dignity and freedom. We believe that youth work and non-formal learning activities can significantly contribute to address these needs.

We are confident that youth work can empower refugees, asylum seekers and migrants and can increase awareness about this issue within the local communities. In this context, the project “Mind Full Nest” is born to create a nest for every young person by supporting the professional development of youth workers to improve the level of the key competences on how to work with youth from migrant/refugee background.

Innovative aspect of the project:
The project introduces youth work to the innovative concept of mindfulness. Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment without judgment.

Mindfulness is a great way of realizing, exploring and using our inner resources, our talents, passions and potential. By infusing mindfulness into youth work, we can maximize the empowerment of the young people, especially the ones who need it the most, like young people from migrant/refugee background.

We are going to work on mindfulness using the following elements:
• Meditation practices
• Dancing and singing
• Poetry
• Drawing
• Nature
• Storytelling

Aim and objectives:

The aim of the project is to develop the competences and to inspire the youth workers to work in a more meaningful and impactful way with young people coming from migrant and/or refugee background.

The objectives of the project are for youth workers:
1. to gain knowledge on how to use a diverse range of non-formal methods when working with young people, especially the ones coming from challenging backgrounds
2. to develop skills in using holistic education in order to achieve more impactful transformations in the lives of young people for reaching their full potential
3. to be inspired and motivated to improve their work with young people
4. to create sustainable follow-up action plans that will enhance the impact on young people’s lives both on local and international level
