Training Course Future Labs:  TC on Innovative Digital Tools for Youth Workers

Dates: 20-27 January 2019

Venue: Broumov, Czech Republic

Eligible are 17 participants coming from: Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Slovenia

Application deadline: 31st October 2018

In youth work, new tools are constantly needed in order to keep up with fast global changes, support youth participation in society, active citizenship and to prevent new forms of social exclusion.

General Description

Many youth workers, trainers and educators struggle with the ways how to approach these topics, and new responses are urgently needed. This need for innovation in the field is also a political priority: in 2016, Innovation in Youth work was one of the priorities set by the EU presidency.

Since 2017, the consortium of project Future Labs is working on various outputs that will bring innovative methods to youth work fields; and this training course is part of this project.

In that framework, the specific objectives for this training are:

  • To explore the concepts of creativity and Innovation in Youth Work;
  • To capacitate youth workers in innovative approaches namely: Gamification, Photo Voice, Visualisation, Digital Storytelling;
  • To plan testing of new approaches with young people and youth workers in a collaborative manner;
  • To evaluate, adapt and spread the tools learned and tested in the european youth work community.

Profile of Participants

  • Active youth workers working regularly with youth;
  • Motivated to experiment and innovate in their daily work, by implementing new tools;
  • Available to test the methods learned and give structured feedback to the organisers within 2-3 months after the training;
  • Motivated to share the newly gained competences with other youth workers;
  • Comfortable with filming – this training is part of bigger project, within which we will take videos of some methods used during the training and use them as instruction videos for the outputs of this project (to be used by youth workers after this project).

Methodology

The program will be based in the principles of Non Formal Learning. Activities will be mostly experiential and interactive.

Sessions will be built around group exercises, games and looking at study cases. Participants are expected not only to learn the tools presented but also to envisage their practical application and plan concrete ways to implement them with their young people.

Because the main topics of the training are connected to digital world, we will ask participants to bring their smartphones, tablets or notebooks with them (if they have – it’s not a condition).

Venue

The training will take place in spectacular location – Baroque style monastery Broumov, important crossroad of historical events.

When coming to Czech Republic, town Broumov and surrounding region might not be an obvious choice, but we fall in love with the place at first sight. Beautiful architecture, damn good equipped for events like ours, splendid nature around.

The whole area of monastery is undergoing revitalisation process and process of “re-purpose” and it serves currently to diverse type of events – cultural, educational, societal.

In January we will have a chance to use multiple spaces of the monastery since it is an off-season. We will find there calm and focused space with damn good internet connection ;). Don’t worry, is heated up well!

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 are true believers that before you can help others you need to help yourself, therefore, youth actors will be provided with space and tools to use mindfulness in order to raise their capacity when encouraging active participation based on EU values

General Description

Young people are facing several obstacles that are holding them back to engage in quality participation that would be based on personal initiative, moreover, powerfully rooted in common EU values.

Therefore, 32 youth actors who are actively working with young people will come together in UACT training course and they will be provided with knowledge about European values, meaning behind European citizenship and common benefits it brings and, furthermore, they will be equipped with skills (motivation, problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration, flexibility) and methods as raising self-awareness and learning more about one’s self in order to raise their capacity at youth work.

We are true believers that before you can help others you need to help yourself, therefore, we have included self-awareness dimension.

UACT will use different self-reflection methods and tools how to reflect on one’s strengths, weaknesses, skills, obstacles, and possible solutions to review their effectiveness and when needed adapt one’s approach, rather than just carrying on doing things as they always have been done.

UACT will use mainly non-formal learning methods that consist of self-directed but continuously supported activities. Non-formal learning methods such as discussions, role plays, work in international groups, experience sharing, deep self-reflection, workshops, and simulations, so to hands-on activities would engage participants in a participatory and active learning process.

The objective of the project are:
1. Examine the concepts of European citizenship and EU values
2. Analyze direct and indirect benefits of active participation
3. Reinforce self-awareness with critical and creative reflections compare participant current behavior and actions to their internal values

4. Discover the current situation of active citizenship in partner countries
5. Create innovative tools and practical action plans on how to raise awareness about the benefits of active citizenship
