Training Course: EUth Work

Dates: 1 – 8 April 2018

Venue: Cascais, Portugal, The European Youth Capital

Eligible are 2 participants coming from: Greece

and Involves 30 participants coming from: Portugal, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Estonia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, Turkey

Application deadline: 15th February 2018

Since the ’90s, youth work has grown rapidly, but although it is nowadays widely recognized as a valid mean to support the development and participation of young people, there isn’t across Europe a shared knowledge of its features, a common framework in terms of recognition neither a clear strategy for the development of the competences of the human resources involved in the sector.

Description

Questions like “Who is the youth worker? How to become a youth worker?” and “What’s his/her role in Europe?” are still hard to be answered.

This it not only due the broad spectrum of the sector and the multi-dimension of the approaches, but also because scarce are the opportunities for youth workers to debate over such questions in a in-depth and structured way among peers.

The project was conceived having in mind these considerations and was drafted out with the aim to reflect, assess and promote youth work across Europe.

The organizations involved in this project are aware of the great impact youth work has in the main burning issues of Europe – such as employment, social cohesion and civic participation – but they are also aware that such impact could be greater and more effective if there would be more space for debate, share and cooperate between youth workers at European level.

The Seminar wants to represent such space; a space to:

– Broaden the understanding of youth work’s practices, policies and systems;
– Increase youth workers’ and Youth leaders motivation and satisfaction and contribute to their professional development;
– Disseminate good practices to strengthen the cooperation between organizations and increase their capacity to operate at EU

Expected Commitment and Working Methodology

This Seminar will be based in active and collaborative methodologies. Participants will be asked to research and bring information about

1) how is youth work organised and recognised in their countries

2) Good practices in the field of Youth Work.

The participants themselves, during the program, will share this information. Moreover the participants will, together, build a dissemination video and a booklet with the information gathered.

The activity will take place in Fundação O Século, at S. Joao de Estoril, at 5 minutes distance from the train station connecting Cascais to Lisbon.

This space has already hosted previous Rota Jovem’s projects, thus, the mutual trust between the two entities will definitely be an asset able to guarantee a smooth implementation of the project.

Fundação O Século has lodging facilities, large open-air spaces, a fully equipped seminar room and a canteen able to meet all the participants’ need.

Training Course: The Power of Non Formal Education 2018

Dates: 7-13 March 2018

Venue: Portugal

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme countries

Application deadline: 21st January 2018

Improving the impact of Non Formal Education (NFE), principles and methods in creating empowerment opportunities for young people as real actors of the society (from local to Europe).

Description

Why this Training Course?

– To stimulate the participants to feel and reflect about the power of non-formal education (NFE) by experimenting different kind of non-formal educational methods.
– To analyze the role and reception of NFE in our different countries within a common Europe.

– To discover and debate the European strategy of NFE.
– To fight against the growing consuming approaches towards young people in the non-formal education field.
– To explore meanings, roles and complementarities of different educational approaches and methods (formal, non-formal, informal).
– To reconsider daily youth work practices.
– To understand the principles of program building and NFE within Erasmus + Youth in Action.

How it will be done?

In order to have real impacts, the participants experience an innovative approach, using a full immersion in the experiential learning cycle: doing/ feeling, reflecting, transferring…

To have profound impact, we need to go further than classical running of training courses. The participants are encouraged to really build their own training and learning process, supported by a fine tuned pedagogical programme. We consider that this is the condition to understand the real power of NFE.

The pedagogical process

A fundamental flow during the training is based upon:
– Experiencing: different educational settings, different non formal education methods (role play, simulation exercise…)
– Reflecting: on the methods and its impacts, on the power and limits of NFE, on building a pedagogical process…
– Transferring: to the own reality of participants, in order to improve ways of working with young people

– Sharing: different perceptions, current situations and experiences.
– Developing: the building capacity of the participants, by including them in the decision process of the project designing (participants will decide some sessions they feel they need to have) but also in the implementation of the program (‘Power to the People’ moments).

Participants should be at least 18 years old and should have a good level of English.

Training Course Common Ground: Training in Socially Engaged Art Tools

Dates: 31 January 2018 – 4 February 2019

Venue: Cork, Ireland

Eligible are 20 participants coming from: Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Portugal, Serbia

Application deadline: 30th December 2017

Common Ground, a training in socially engaged art tools is a 1-year long part-time programme comprising 3 residential and an online stage taking place in Budapest, Hungary, and Cork, Ireland, from February 2018 to February 2019

Description

Common Ground: Training in Socially Engaged Art Tools

Common Ground, a training in socially engaged art tools is a 1-year long part-time programme comprising 3 residential and an online stage taking place in Budapest, Hungary, and Cork, Ireland, from February 2018 to February 2019 initiated by the Firestarter Network and developed by Makeshift Ensemble (IRL), Artemisszió Alapítvány (HUN) and Postmodernsquare (FIN).

Common Ground is a training and research project focussing on approaches to working and engaging meaningfully with local communities of place within the internationalised, migratory professional practices of both international youth work and the arts.

The project will “twin” two multi-cultural, inner city streets and communities in Cork and Budapest that will serve as the location as well as the subject of the training allowing to explore, through artistic tools, the questions: Who are your neighbours? Whose street is this anyway? How can you leave again?

Bringing together participants from different backgrounds, the aim is to develop strategies and explore methodologies within the broader frame of socially engaged art with a specific focus on ‘parachute strategies’ to engage with local communities. By ‘parachute strategies’ we mean methods and practices that do not require long-term engagement with communities but work on the basis of interventions, one off events or remote practices that nonetheless provide meaningful connections and a real exchange.

This training will join trainers and participants coming from different backgrounds to allow Common Ground to act as a platform for peer-learning, sharing of international practice and collaboration which will have multiple outcomes in methodology, projects and the professional development of the participants.

What to Expect?

The aim is to equip the participants with a broad understanding of tools and practices, develop their skills and awareness and allow them to learn by doing while also providing support, mentorship as well as skills-based workshops. Having the experience of working in two different countries on similar streets will also give the participants the opportunity to understand the international dimension of working locally.

We firmly believe in peer learning and the power of joint thinking across sectors and disciplines. The participants will be invited to contribute their knowledge and expertise as well as receiving inputs from trainers, peers and invited guests. It is this learning and the questions raised, as well as the methods developed, that will form the backbone of the second half of the project and will culminate in the international seminar in Cork entitled

How to finish? focussing on dissemination and knowledge sharing practices within the context of short-term international projects with young people taking place within local communities. The results of the activities will be the learning of the participants, development of new methods and potential projects on a local and European level, a book documenting the project and its outcomes, as well as public presentations, both in Cork and Budapest.

The training will have 4 segments:

1. Common Ground: Cork 30th Jan – 4th Feb 2018 a 4-day study visit in the context of the Quarter Block Party festival in Cork, Ireland, focussing on performative strategies and anthropological approach to public space.
2. An online part-time training conducted via www.artescommunity.eu, a web-portal for community and social engaged arts projects in Europe that will take place in April/May 2018.
3. Common Ground: Budapest in August (exact dates tbc) an 8-day residential training in Budapest, Hungary taking place at Aurora and other locations along Nepszinhaz utca in Budapest. This training will have a specific focus on exploring video methods.
4. Common Ground: How to finish? 1st Feb – 5th Feb 2019 a return to disseminating the results and learning of the project in the form of presentations, performances and talks in collaboration with Quarter Block Party festival. This will also include the launch of the book.
Full participation in the four elements of Common Ground is mandatory!

Who should Apply?

This training is aimed specifically for participants resident in Hungary, Ireland, Serbia, Finland, Greece and Portugal who work with young people under 30 and have a background in either socially engaged art, public art, urban design intervention, documentary film, participatory arts and/or social work, youth work, community organising, activism or cultural anthropology, and already have some professional experience in their fields and a genuine interest and openness to explore the intersection of art and the social in a cross-disciplinary environment.

Training Course: Making Movies Matter

Dates: 1-11 February 2018

Venue: Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom

Eligible are 21 participants coming from: Estonia, FYROM, France, Italy, Greece, Portugal, Slovak Republic, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 14th December 2017

Main aim of this project is to equip youth workers with competencies necessary for using movie-making as a methodology.

Description

The TC “Training Course – Making Movies Matter” aims to equip youth workers with competencies necessary for using movie-making as a methodology in bringing the common fundamental values of our society closer to hard to reach young people and young people not involved in civic and non-formal education.

Based on our previous experiences, we believe that movies can make a difference when working with those youth, and we want to help more organizations and youth workers to be effective at it.

Films are by default thought to be more appealing to young people compared to other media and organizations use them for introducing young people with ideas, concepts and values that do not appear exciting to most of them.

However, youth workers often lack the skills needed to produce films that will look genuine and will attract and keep the attention of young people – especially ones that are generally not involved in non-formal education, and thus more difficult to reach.

Thus, such films often reach only a limited number of young people who are already involved, and who can be also impacted using other methods.

We are sure that youth workers or even educated youth are able to change the situation. We want to act and bring positive changes in our societies taking a special focus on media.

We intend to bring everyone messages for gender equity and equality through digital images. We intend to invite youth workers and educators to use these tools in their future work.

Venue: Berlin, Germany

Eligible are 34 participants coming from: Finland, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania

Application deadline: 10th January 2018

Our ten-day-training about “Refugees in Europe: Educational approaches to deal with causes of flights, anti-racism and opportunities of inclusion” will take place in Berlin from 03.02.-12.02.2018.

Description

Our ten-day-training about “Refugees in Europe: Educational approaches to deal with causes of flights, anti-racism and opportunities of inclusion” will take place in Berlin from 03.02.-12.02.2018.

We expect trainees from Finland, Portugal, Germany, Italy, Romania, the Netherlands and Greece who work with youth and young adults. Moreover, our specific goal is to involve youth workers who have own migration and/or refugee experience and trainees with fewer opportunities due to economical, social and cultural obstacles.

The participants will learn, try out, discuss and evaluate a large variety of non-formal pedagogical approaches to deal with (causes of) flights, inclusion, anti-racist education, stereotypes, conflict management and trans-cultural communication. The training involves activities such as doing excursions and guided tours, work with creative and artistic methods and sharing knowledge and experiences.

The activities in the program have the common factor of qualifying the trainees within the context of intercultural learning and stimulating them to develop and adopt new skills concerning the topics of flights and inclusion of refugees.

The training promotes pedagogical approaches in dealing with challenges and opportunities in multicultural and pluralistic societies and empowers the participants to work on reflective competences and tools for social change.

Thus the participants will be able to use their newly acquired expertise in their work with youth and young adults and share and multiply what they have learned with fellow youth workers

The language of communication during the training will be in English.
