Training Course VulnerAbility: Transforming Weaknesses into Strengths for Social Inclusion

Dates: 19-24 October 2020

Venue: Brussels, Belgium – FR

Many projects have focused on inclusion of YPLO through dialogue, active participation and citizenship. It is important to understand the vulnerability of some young people to work on it and transform it into an asset. That is the aim of this TC.

General Description

For many years now, experts and youth work professionals have agreed on one fact: young people are increasingly threatened by social exclusion: lack of integration into society, disengagement from politics, refuge into delinquency and violence, virtualization of social relations, etc.

The personal, social, cultural and economic context strongly influences this process of “vulnerability”, especially into categories of youth called “young people with less opportunities”.

Hence, many actions and projects have focused on inclusion of young people with less opportunities by promoting dialogue, active participation and citizenship. In this context, it is important to understand the vulnerability of some categories of young people in order to work on it and transform it into an asset.

In modern society, vulnerability is generally seen as a weakness and an obstacle to succeed in social life.

This negative approach also affect youth workers in their perceptions and ways of working!

Against the current trend, we think that vulnerability must be explored as a lever of action. We believe in the potential of vulnerability as an approach to connect with youngsters that feel a strong disconnection with society.

Beyond the symptom, we aim to restore the sense of belonging and affiliation of young people by equipping them with life competences, reinforcing their resilience and strengthening their values. Through non-formal and informal learning, this alternative approach helps to promote active citizenship and to strengthen social inclusion of young people.

This training course aims to support youth workers to develop their competences in understanding vulnerability and exploring its potential in reinforcing young people’s self confidence. In this training course, participants will experience a positive approach of vulnerability which is a key element in establishing true connections with young people. We will explore vulnerability through non-formal education and experiential learning methods.

Objectives:

  • To provide participants with concepts and theoretical background about vulnerability and its role within the process of inclusion/exclusion;
  • To share tools and practices of engaging with vulnerable groups, in an international context;
  • To take into account the participants own vulnerable sides in order to transform them as a strength by providing with a deeper understanding of vulnerability on a personal and interpersonal level;
  • To explore the potential of vulnerability in order to transform it in an inclusion strength for young people in their realities;

Methodology

The methodology will be participant-centered, based on non-formal education, experiential and intercultural learning; working methods will be diverse and interactive in order to ensure a balance between sharing, theory and practice.
