Training Course Youth Goals: A pathway to practical implementation

Dates: 15-22 September 2019

Venue: Mollina (Málaga), Spain

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 14th July 2019

The general objective of this training action is to promote the implementation of Youth Goals as a tool for empowerment of European youth entities in the field of youth rights.

General Description

Youth Goals are the gateway to implement the rights approach within youth entities. This training action aims to generate a strategic model for planning activities arising from the collaboration and experience of the participants and with the Youth Goals as a transversal element.

In this twentieth edition of the University, the theme has focused on the concept of “Youth and Justice” within the framework of the triennium that began last year and focuses on SDG 16: “Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions”.

From the last contextualization arises the approach of the proposed training action: Youth Goals are directly linked to a series of inalienable rights of young people and their implementation contributes to guarantee a state of social justice at all levels. Therefore, it is necessary that young people reflect on the best way to incorporate these goals in the development of their activities in a transversal way.

The Youth Goals have an undeniable European perspective, so it is in a transnational forum like the one offered by the University of Youth and Development where a joint reflection can best be reached on which measures of implementation can be built.

Considering that youth organizations have structures and activity models as varied as the interests of young people, this training action is planned as a joint reflection on the application of youth goals in models of youth participation.

The general objective of this training action is to promote the implementation of Youth Goals as a tool for empowerment of European youth entities in the field of youth rights.

The specific objectives to achieve this end are the following:

  • Expand the perspective of the participants on the need to apply the Youth Goals in their performance.
  • Provide the group of participants with the necessary means and networks for the application of the Youth Goals.
  • Accompany the group of participants in the strategic design for the integration of the Youth Goals.
  • Promote the creation of a network of agents of change at European level.

With these objectives we want to achieve through our training action results based on the training of young people and youth entities that transcend the limits of the training itself and can be disseminated to other interested European youth organizations.

To this end, a pedagogical approach has been designed that crystallizes into a practical guide of Youth Goals implementation models and that put together collective reflection with technical resources.

The activities that constitute this formative action will lead the participants of a general conceptualization of the Youth Goals to a particular creation of practical models of implementation.

Likewise, the launching of a collaborative network to share good practices regarding the field application of the resulting models of this practical guide is proposed.

Earth, Wind & Fire is an holistic, magical and energetic project aimed at improving skills in the field of emotional education and personal empowerment so that they can stimulate and value the young people with whom they work.

General Description

This project is addressed to participants coming from 10 countries: Ukraine, Armenia, Romania, Czech Republic, Poland, Italy, Greece, Hungary, Croatia and Spain. Each country will provide 2 participants that will be selected according to their professional profile and motivation.

We will use techniques of natural healing, personal balance, emotional stimulation, creative development, empowerment in talents and education in values from ancestral cultures, holistic techniques and personal growth, especially those linked to the countryside and nature, to create an active, integrated and constructive youth.

These techniques share the same principles and objectives; connect the individual with their innate abilities and provide them with confidence and determination to achieve their goals, from mindfulness to emotional coaching, through Reiki, Kundalini Yoga or Sound Healing.

The main objectives are:

  •  Create a work guide that includes tools for emotional education and youth empowerment.
  •  Motivate and increase the satisfaction of the trainers by facilitating techniques of
    personal growth, relaxation, concentration and self-help that allow them to achieve
    their personal balance and emotional stability and allow them to improve their working conditions and those of the young people with whom they work.
  •  Improve the skills of educators by equipping them with tools to work and promote emotional education and youth empowerment with their students in order to promote diversity and transmit the fundamental common values of our society, especially to young people with difficult access, and avoid the violent radicalization of young people.
  •  Promote youth development in rural, depopulated areas and regions where they suffer economic, social and cultural difficulties and reach marginalized young people, providing them with tools for their inclusion.
  •  To improve the quality of trainers’ work by increasing their skills and abilities to address the needs of disadvantaged people in terms of sensitivity, empathy and understanding.

The project is aimed at all those people interested in personal growth and awareness, all those who believe that a more complete and healthy human being can be developed, to all those who want to know holistic techniques of personal balance, to all those who believe in nature, in energy, in spirituality, in feminism, in emotional development and in education as a way of life.

In this project we want to give priority to participants with economic, social, geographical, cultural, physical or health difficulties. One of the main values in this project is the motivation of participants, as well as integration and inclusion of people with disadvantages.

Finally, as a collective project, all of us who are part of it will learn, grow and enrich ourselves during this time and all your contributions will be very important for the final result.

TicTac is a multilateral training course for voluntary and professional youth workers as well as youth leaders interested in using international cooperation to enhance their local development strategies in line with the goals of their organizations.

General Description

The overall aim of TicTac is to develop the participants’ competences for implementing ‘Mobility of Youth Workers’ Erasmus+ Youth projects as support measures in an organisation’s long term strategy.

The specific objectives of the course are to:

  • promote the Erasmus+ Youth Programme as an educational tool
  • explore Erasmus+ Youth Programme with a special focus on quality international cooperation
  • understand the role of Erasmus+ Youth Programme within a long term local strategy
    simulate the first steps of organizing a ‘Mobility of Youth Workers’ project in the youth field within an international team
  • develop the participants’ competences in planning non-formal education and intercultural learning processes
  • promote youth participation and active citizenship as key elements when designing a European project

The training course is designed for youth workers and youth leaders who:

  • have experienced an international event/activity before (not necessarily a project under the Erasmus+ programme),
  • are motivated to learn about and make use of the Erasmus+ Programme (Youth) for creating or strengthening international partnerships,
  • are willing to work on the quality of their international projects,

  • are at least 18 years old,
  • are able to use English as a working language in order to establish effective communication during group-work and sessions. A low level of English will limit your learning opportunities.

TicTac and Youthpass

The implementation of Youthpass within the TicTac training courses has two dimensions: participants do not only assess their own learning outcomes, but also learn how to implement Youthpass in their own projects. This space for self-assessment is also linked with the concrete application of their new competences in their own realities through composing a learning diary and a personal action plan.
