The aim of the long-term TC is to introduce improvisational methods in youth work and to combine them with artistic activities to improve group learning processes.

General Description

In the field of non-formal education and youth work, artistic forms of expression are significant for several reasons. Art has a huge potential for self-development and different artistic methods are powerful in self-exploration and self-discovery.

They support us to connect with ourselves and with others. When we create, we express more than we are aware of. It is about our inner world, our inner child that very often is forgotten because of social and cultural constructs.

Artistic methods are very useful tools to work with various topics and different target groups and have the potential to create an environment that is joyful, playful and safe for improvisation and learning. We can explore, learn and experience in a more authentic way.

The project focuses on improving group learning processes by applying improvisational and artistic methods to welcome mistakes with a positive attitude, strengthen self-confidence and free creativity. Holistic approach to learning will be used combining different elements of arts such as movement, drawing, music, visuals, and theatre. We will have the opportunity to work with our inner dancer, painter, musician, performer and storyteller.

The aim of this long-term training course is to empower those who work with groups of young people to be confident and free in experiencing and using improvisational and artistic methods as a tool for personal and professional development in youth work, training and facilitation.

To achieve this we set up the following objectives:

– to rediscover improvisation skills of youth workers/educators/trainers through artistic methods (theatre, dance, music, painting);
– to learn and experience how to use artistic methods while working with young people to improve and foster self-confidence and release their creativity;

– to reflect on their artistic learning as a youth worker through the experience of artistic methods (connection to the inner artist);
– to create a space for the participants to design, implement and evaluate experimental learning activities;
– to create a network for sustainability of the idea by cooperating and creating new projects.

The long-term training course includes 2 activities, one in Hungary (7- 14 May 2019), and one in the Netherlands (10 – 17 July 2019).

General Description

Do you work with young people? Are you aware of a number of funding opportunities offered within the Erasmus+ Youth Programme? Then this Training course is for you!

This training offers an international learning experience for youth work practitioners who want to learn about the opportunities of Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

It will develop competencies in setting up quality Youth Exchange projects for young people with fewer opportunities.

Jump In will provide a strong positive first experience of international youth work and motivate participants to use the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Context of the TC

The Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme offers a wide range of international learning opportunities for young people: learning mobility of individuals is considered to bring long lasting benefits to the participants and the organizations involved and should ideally be accessible to everyone.

Nevertheless it is often the case that young people and youth organizations do not know about these opportunities. The Erasmus+ Youth Programme is a Programme for all, and efforts should be made to include young people with fewer opportunities.

Jump In will increase the impact of youth work by promoting Erasmus+ Youth Exchanges as a tool and to disseminate non formal education. Its principles and methods are to empower young people with fewer opportunities as real actors of the society.

Together with participants we want to take a look to their local realities and think about youth exchanges that can have a larger impact and be more accessible to everyone, in order to create a solid bridge between the Erasmus+ Youth Programme and young people with fewer opportunities.

The objectives of this project are:

  • To provide basic information about the Erasmus+ Youth Programme for newcomers focusing on Youth exchange activities and their potential to enhance new possibilities for young people with fewer opportunities.
  • To allow participants to learn and practice methods to work with young people in various youth exchange situations.
  • To reflect on the power of words and how to communicate meaningfully with young people.
  • To learn how to organize creative activities with little resources, helping participants map out all the resources in their community that can be used during Youth Exchange projects.
  • To share experiences and good practices at local/ regional level and adapting it to an international context.

Methodology

The training will be a learning-by-doing experience. The methodology will focus on non-formal education. We will create a space where the participants and trainers can learn from each other: workshops, info sessions, activities to improve the group dynamics, individual and group reflection, open space, design thinking.

The trainers’ team will create a learning space, where participants will create the main input/ content from their local and regional perspective to build youth exchange projects.

We invite all those working directly with young people to join this training and learn more about Erasmus+ Youth Programme, more specifically Youth Exchanges. This training course is for newcomers into this program to develop their competencies in setting up quality Youth Exchange projects for young people with fewer opportunities.

We also invite people who are curious and motivated about setting up impactful Youth Exchanges to join.

Participants Profile:

It runs from January 2018 to December 2020, when the Erasmus+ Programme ends.

This Kick off Conference will enable the Youth@Work Partnership to showcase its achievements so far, to create a platform for networking, reflection, exchanges of practices and knowledge, and to explore ways forward in addressing the topics of youth employability and entrepreneurship.

General Aim

Holloko

Training Course: Follow the Impulse of Your Inner Artist

Dates: 6-14 May 2019

Venue: Hollókő, Hungary

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Czech Republic, Slovak Republic

Application deadline: 23rd March 2019

The aim is to empower those who work with groups of young people to be confident and free in experiencing and using improvisational and artistic methods as a tool for personal and professional development in youth work, training and facilitation.

General Description

Artistic forms of expression are significant in the field of non-formal education and youth work. First, art has a huge potential for self-development. Different artistic methods are powerful as they open a space for self-exploration and self-discovery.

They support individuals to connect themselves and with others. When we create, we express more than we are aware of. It is about our inner world, our inner child that very often is forgotten because of social and cultural constructs.

Second, artistic methods are very useful tools to work with various topics and different target groups. Third, artistic methods have the potential to create an environment that is joyful, playful and safe for improvisation and learning. Individuals can explore, learn and experience in a not formalized, restricted way that will open a different image of arts that is not academic, but more authentic, that connect us to our self and touches from the heart.

Holistic approach to learning will be used combining different elements of arts such as movement, drawing, music, visuals, and theatre. We will have the opportunity to work with our inner dancer, painter, musician, performer and storyteller.

The objectives
-To rediscover improvisation skills of youth workers/educators/trainers through artistic methods (theatre, dance, music, painting)
-To learn and experience how to use artistic methods while working with young people to improve/foster self-confidence and release the creativity
-To reflect on their own learning as youth worker through the experience of artistic methods (connection to the inner artist)
-To create a space for the participants to design, implement and evaluate experimental artistic activities
-To create a network for sustainability of the idea by cooperating and creating new projects

The structure
It will consist of three phases.

First phase will focus on learning and experiencing artistic methods and developing their improvisational skills that will guide them to reflect on their personal and professional development as well as developing their idea(s) for the online learning or local community work.

The second phase will be the online/practice phase, when each participant or group of participants will implement their ideas on the theme.

The last phase of the training underlines the importance of reconnecting with the group, sharing experience, going deeper into artistic methods and youth work as well as having a space to design and implement group activities while reflecting on their identity as a trainer, facilitator and youth workers.

Methods
Theatre, dance and movement, music, painting, voice.

Participants Profile
-Trainers, facilitators in youth work
-Youth workers, youth leaders or volunteers involved in work with young people
-Being interest in learning how to use artistic tools as working methods with their target group
-Being available for the whole duration of the training (two training activities and online phase)

Sermugnano

Training Course: Finding Your Voice

Dates: 1-7 April 2019

Venue: Castiglione in Teverina, Italy

Eligible are 20 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovak Republic, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 27th February 2019

Would you like to enable your youth work discovering approaches for dialogue, political change and active citizenship through singing?

General Description

Apply now and see how to encourage active listening, cooperation and dialogue with young people through voice work!

Finding Your Voice” is 6 days residential training course promoted by Cooperativa Sociale Muovimente (Italy).

The training wants to firstly explore the benefits of singing both as a youth tool and methodology.

How can we utilise singing for promoting self confidence and developing positive self esteem and other youth work priorities such as teamwork, problem solving and cultural expression. We will then look to explore the power and influence of the ‘protest song’ and how we can use singing for promoting democratic participation and how, as youth workers, can we encourage the young people we work with to explore and engage as active citizens in the democratic process and find their political voice.

The project will take place in Sermugnano, a small village in central Italy, from the 1st to the 7th of April 2019 (travel days included). It will involve 20 participants from 10 different European countries (Italy, Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Bulgaria and United Kingdom).

Project Context

In a time when the traditional concept of youth work is going through some significant changes, the aim of this training course is to explore singing as a platform for youth participation, looking at how it can support young people to be active and discover their political and social voice, thus becoming an agent of change. We want to explore other pathways for youth participation and political education and we see singing and vocal expression as one of them.

Numerous studies show how young people who take part in musical and artistic activities within the school context are more inclined to take part in school politics, acquiring the skills and confidence to express their point of view.

Art and theatre programmes have long been used to help people communicate, share values, learn skills and communicate information, which are in fact the key competences required to become active citizens and politically involved individuals.

The project aims to create a space for an exchange of opinions and practices for those working in the field of youth work and to offer an artistic experience that can be analysed and explored in order to understand the different possibilities of action and use. The connection between music and politics, in particular political expression within songs, is present in many cultures.

Although music can influence political movements and actions, it is not clear how or to what extent the public relates to music at the political level. Music can be an expression of protest, from the “singing revolution” of the Baltic countries to the punk anti-establishment of the 1970s and, more recently, the case of the Pussy Riot in Russia, music and songs seem to have become in effect a platform for protest.

Project Objectives

The main objectives of the training course are:

– To discover the joy of singing and using their own voice;
– To explore the power of using the voice to express, thoughts, feelings, emotions and intentions;
– To understand how singing can promote self-development and increase self awareness and confidence;
– To explore how singing can be used to encourage active listening, cooperation and dialogue in our work with young people;
– To identify approaches for dialogue, political change and active citizenship and messages through singing that can enable our youth work.
