This project addresses the problem of inclusion of refugees in non-formal education context in youth work.

General Description

Given the dramatic images on the screens of international television stations every day, there is no shortage of warnings that speak of a new “Migration Period” in global history and Europe is facing the hugest migration after the World War II. Though, it shows us the EU States are not prepared to such influxes to give urgent solution towards this issue.

Most of those young people have to be educated to prevent their marginalization in the future and get included in the society. Towards those issues, with parallels to school education, there should be opportunities for young refugees to participate into education processes in youth sector.

Although, the youth workers are not competent enough to provide educational opportunities in EU and neighbouring countries such Russia and Moldova. With the project, we would like to address the problem of inclusion of refugees in non-formal education context in youth work and create synergies among the participating organizations to future cooperation for the inclusive education methods.

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 and also marginalized young people with migration background. More specifically the project’s five main 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 which are developed for refugees and young people with migration background
  • To explore the role of youth work in inclusion strategies on educational services
  • To create and implement local activities on inclusion of young refugees and young people with migration background
  • To strengthen ties between people and organizations engaged in the field of youth work.

Participants’ profile:

1, Has been involved in non-formal education context in local level as youth trainer or youth leader.
2. Motivation to take part in a mutual learning process in a intercultural setting.
3. Has interest to work on inclusion topic of young people with fewer opportunities and young refugees.
