There are many barriers to inclusion that present themselves across Europe. we will go beyond the confusion, and create a space to equip participants with non-formal learning tools to foster inclusion within their work with young people.

General Description

The essence of the training course is to equip participants with non-formal learning tools to foster inclusion within their work with young people with fewer opportunities.

The idea of the training is:

To explore how professionals from the youth field directly working with young people with fewer opportunities can promote inclusion within their practice. We will share non-formal tools that allow participants to promote social inclusion with young people with fewer opportunities.

There will be an introduction to non-formal learning tools that can be used by youth workers committed to fostering a culture that embraces the values of diversity and inclusiveness within their communities and their target groups.

On completion of this training, participants will gain a toolbox for promoting social inclusion within their scope of work and influence. Participants will gain an understanding and knowledge of the “7 Pillars of Inclusion” and get equipped with tools to transmit this model into their everyday work.

Participants will gain an understanding of inclusive youth work within Europe and specifically in Ireland by attending interactive workshops, platforms for dialogue and questions, study visits and meetings with key representatives from the youth sector active in Irish society. Allowing participants to explore how inclusion is promoted within these services.

The main objectives of the training are:

(1) To develop an understanding of what an inclusive society might look like with the knowledge of different approaches across Europe.

(2) To look into the challenges of promoting inclusion through case studies, brainstorming and share youth workers experiences on ways to best overcome them.

(3) To become enhanced in the field of non-formal learning (NFL) and to understand the main principles of NFL. Creating and finding tools that can be used to promote inclusion.

(4) To lay the basis for meaningful and cohesive relationships across Europe. Using the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes as a platform to promote inclusion and future collaboration opportunities for youth workers and young people.

Please note the arrival day will be 1st June.

Departure will be the morning of the 6th June.
