Application deadline: 16th March 2020

Attitudes are one of the most challenging parts to approach in our professional development; not so tangible and easy to measure, yet crucial in our work with young people. They manifest in our behaviours, influence our work, relations and social context.

General Description

We are glad to invite you to participate in YOCOMO – the training course, which works with the ETS YOuth worker COmpetence MOdel in order to enable youth workers to reflect on and develop their competences with a focus on their attitudes and behaviours.

Intentions

YOCOMO intends principally to offer you as youth workers a space to reflect and exchange on your practice and understanding with regard to developing attitudes. What does it imply? What does that mean in the context of competences? How do attitudes relate to behaviours? What triggers the change of attitude? How can they be further developed? How do I know that my attitude has changed?

The main purpose is to offer you an opportunity to be curious about your core attitudes as a youth worker and become aware of what shapes you now and where you would like to develop further, in your professional practice.

The course seeks

  • to raise awareness about attitudes and their influence on daily practices
  • to understand how attitudes relate to competences and behaviours
  • to develop an understanding of how attitudes can be changed or further developed
  • to explore the importance of reflection and self-reflective practice
  • to look into the role of “ETS Competence Model For Youth Workers Working Internationally” in your professional development

So, if…

  • you are a youth worker and you already have experience with international mobility and want to develop your competences further;
  • you are eager to reflect on your attitudes in your work with young people and want to have a deeper look at your competences;
  • you are interested to experience working with the ETS competence model for youth workers and in developing within;

  • you are particularly curious and motivated to explore how attitudes and behaviours can impact your work with young people;
  • you are looking for a great opportunity to meet other colleagues and share, exchange, support and evolve;
  • you have a fairly good knowledge of English;
  • you have a structure that supports you (NGO, school, municipality, youth centre, etc.)
    YOCOMO might be for you!

This Course is not the first and only!

The YOCOMO courses are developed as a support for youth workers in their competence development. There are more YOCOMOs than this one implemented around Europe and they focus on different dimensions and levels of complexity of the competence model.

This particular YOCOMO on attitudes and behaviours is a tested training. The first pilot edition was held in 2019 and it has proved to be a beneficial course for youth workers. Have a look to our SALTO YouTube channel to listen to a few participants from the pilot edition, share bits of their experience in of this course.

Design of this Training

YOCOMO is based on a long-term format and blended learning, meaning that they include:

  • One residential course of 5 days (arrivals on the 4th of May, working days on 5-9, departures on the 10th of May);
  • Pre online course starting from the beginning of April (to start exploration and orientation, define learning needs, engage with others) – approximately 8 – 10 hours in total;
  • Post online course in between the residential and the consolidation (to experiment, harvest and further learn) – approximately 8 – 10 hours in total;
  • Final consolidation meeting on 28-30 September 2020. At the time of this call, this is to be confirmed but should it be, you should commit to participate in that meeting as well.
  • The general approach is based on the principles of non-formal learning and the course strongly supports reflection and self-directed learning.

YOCOMO team of Trainers

The team is composed of Monika Kezaite, Salvi Greco and Snežana Bačlija Knoch. Following the selection process, the training team will contact the selected participants with specific information and tasks regarding the further development of the programme, which include online learning as well.

Shortlisted participants will be young people who will be better described, as coming from disadvantaged background (social, economic or geographic obstacles).

ATTENTION: Last call for applicants!

General Description

Highlighting an important priority

Young people’s health and well-being is a permanent priority in Erasmus+ Youth programme and it is also highlighted in the European Youth Strategy. Many promoters have chosen it as a theme in their projects, but it is also a theme that comes up universally in all our work with young people.

As educators we have the duty to support the mental, physical and social well-being of the young people we work with. The YOUth Health Matters seminar highlights research results and general understanding about the well-being of European young people.

It offers tools and good practices for supporting young people’s well-being in Erasmus+ projects and youth work in general. Practicioners outside the Erasmus+ projects will share their expertise, whereas project promoters present their working ways too.

Overall objectives are following:

1. Increase levels of motivation, confidence and aspirations of young people up to 30 years old from disadvantaged backgrounds
2. Increase the chances of obtaining employment and maintaining it by offering essential knowledge in personal development, self care, self improvement and communication through creating vision boards using arts and crafts
3. Raise awareness on the importance of volunteering and lifelong learning and aimed at improving long term career prospects of the participants
4. Promote healthy and sustainable behaviours among the participants through specific workshops on the subjects of environment, food and personal self care.

Health and well-being is a wide topic

Health and well-being are a wide topic to look at. The seminar will concentrate on four strands of well-being:

  • Mental health
  • Healthy lifestyle
  • Empowerment
  • Belonging

Young people’s mental health is the overriding topic that comes up on many levels: statistics and research, general understanding of mental health, practical tools for supporting mental health and project examples of good practices. The programme starts with a more general look and dives deeper into understanding during the days.

Healthy lifestyle can include many aspects relevant for your project and youth work. Topics that can be tackled include e.g. outdoor activities, sports, healthy body images, drugs and alcohol, sexual health and healthy food.

Empowerment links to the support that some young people need in order to take part in activities or in life as general. Good ways of empowering young people with fewer opportunities exist in projects and organisations.

Belonging is a basic human need. We have the need to have social contacts and friendships. We suffer, when we are excluded. How can we fight back loneliness?

Empowering young people means that:

  • More young people have the support, opportunities, skills and resilience they need for the future.
  • Young people have better relationships with their support networks and communities
  • Young people have improved health and wellbeing

We would ensure that young people are heavily involved in the design and delivery of the project as taking ownership means that they will value the project and be keener to make a success of it.

A training course for young people who took part in European Solidarity Corps/Erasmus+ Youth Programme projects and want to share their European experiences with their peers.

General Description

You did a volunteering activity or took part in another European solidarity Corps activity, participated in a youth exchange or organised a youth initiative? Probably you gained lots of experiences and got to know Europe from an exciting perspective. Are you interested in staying involved and sharing your experiences with others?

If you can imagine telling other young people about your European experiences and encouraging them to try suchlike, we invite you warmly to become a EuroPeer! EuroPeers are young people who have already taken part in an European Solidarity Corps/Erasmus+ Youth Programme project. They share their experiences and inform other young people (their peers) about these opportunities and other ways to go abroad. This can be done in different ways and in the framework of various events.

During this international training course you will learn how to organise different types of EuroPeer events and how to share your European experience effectively with your peers.

You will attend workshops on:

  • opportunities for young people to participate in Europe
  • Mobility programmes in Europe
  • Project management and PR activities
  • Communicating the European idea.

You will also have time to develop your first own EuroPeer activity. At the end of the training you’ll get the chance to implement your activity (together with other participants) on the ENCORE event, a networking event for Belgian organizations working with international volunteers. You’ll have the opportunity to talk about a variety of topics related to European volunteering experiences and you’ll help the next generation of volunteers to have a better experience, thanks to your feedback!

During the training there will also be a Social Media team consisting of 4 people, they will be responsible for the whole social dimension of the training to the online world. If you’d like to gain media experiences, you can apply for this team.

It will give you a slightly different experience of the whole training. This team will be guided by a very enthusiastic youth leader.

Information about both the EuroPeer project and previous events organised by EuroPeers over the last years can be found here. Or check the Europeers International Facebook page online.

Training Course: Acroconnection

Dates: 17-30 June 2020

Venue: France

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: France, Germany, Poland, Slovenia

Application deadline: 29th February 2020

The workshop “AcroConnection” aims to explore how partner acrobatics and social circus can contribute to the empowerment of disadvantaged groups and the promotion of European values.

General Description

The project aims to involve youth workers and artists from various parts of Europe as well as local residents, to exchange and develop educational tools using acrobatics and social circus as a source of inspiration and encouragement.

We want to empower young people through movement and play, remind them of their potential and the opportunities of their environment and show them how to become active agents in their personal lives and in their development as members of their community.

In circus and acrobatics, dialogue, discussion and exchange of experiences, challenges and perspectives in the work of participants, we actively explore and explore our own potentials and limits of youth work.

Together, participants will explore art and culture as powerful agents producing knowledge and promoting the exchange of ideas and experiences, and having an impact on society. With intense training, plenty of space for interpersonal and intercultural dialogue, we want to reach and sensitize participants to social circus, focusing on partner acrobatics, stage presence and public awareness, as a tool empowerment and positive social change among youth.

Partner acrobatics associated with social circus theater drills provide access to social, emotional, cognitive and physical experiences as well as self-assessment and self-organization, autonomy, goal acquisition, solidarity, self-esteem, physical well- being, communication and adaptability.

Theater and clown exercises allow participants to develop essential skills such as stage presence, public awareness and openness to connect to their own vulnerability and sensitivity, and offer a fun way to international participants and locals to connect.

Training Course Time Travellers: The European Perspective

Dates: 15-23 May 2020

Venue: Ključ, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Albania, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Kosovo*, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Spain, Turkey

Application deadline: 1st April 2020

The training aims at transferring a methodology to implement and strengthen youth work in the field of remembrance. It builds on the principals of living memories by putting participants into their own and genuine historical perspective.

General Description

The training aims to deconstruct one of the sources of nationalism and racism, which is the concept of national history as provided in the framework of most curricula in European countries nowadays.

The training course “Time Travellers – The European Perspective” aims at transferring a methodology to implement and strengthen youth work in the field of remembrance and commemoration. It builds on the principals of living memories by putting young participants into the center of their own and genuine historical perspective and to create a personal and a local context of historical experience.

In result national history, which is in many cases also the history of living conflicts, retreats and personal history becomes the defining angle. This training course is aimed to transfer a large number of non-formal methods, which we have developed over the course of time and activities. We will introduce participants and their organisation to the different approved methods, techniques and activities, as well as means of dissemination and exploitations of our results.

The ultimate aim is to motivate and equip the participants to apply these tools in their own local and regional environment with their youth and to promote the principles of peaceful remembrance. Thereby they can support dialogue in their own societies and an atmosphere of understanding and last but not least a renewed curiosity for often underestimated topics of history: social development, emancipation, human rights and European common values.

The Training course will take place in Ključ, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Participants should be mainly from youth organisations that want to improve their profile through new approaches in the field of remembrance work and anti-racism trainings and youth work in intercultural contexts.

Participants will have a personal experience of the former war torn Bosnia and Herzegovina. They will learn new skills of research borrowed from social sciences that improve their experiences in needs assessment of future project. They will learn the methodology of “time travelling” into personal and local history.

The impact on the local surrounding will be that of recognition and respect. The organisations will profit from new ways of approaching anti-racism and trainings against xenophobia. Participants will be introduced to new applications and methods to improve the visibility of their own rural surrounding.

Costs

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Accommodation and food

All costs are covered by the organizers.

Travel reimbursement

The travel costs will be reimbursed as follows:

  • Albania, Czech Republic, Kosovo*, The Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia = 180 EUR per person
  • Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Romania, Spain, Turkey  = 275 EUR per person
  • Armenia = 360 EUR per person
