This training course aiming to give creative and innovative tools to youth workers in order to increase the quality in their Erasmus+ projects and offer answers to the above issues.

General Description

The idea of this training is to turn things upside down. And inside out. To take old ideas out of the box, and re-construct them in a different shape…

We want to use the fact that a new, different programme is starting, to help future beneficiaries to re-think their practices, to invent new ones, to experiment and to find new solutions to old problems.

All of this based on Non-formal learning principles including experiential and self-directed learning.

Objectives:

  • To support youth workers, youth leaders and other educators to think in innovative ways when approaching youth-related topics and develop creative models of intervention
  • To increase the impact and efficiency of their activities – and even considering cooperating in wider fields and creating synergies outside youth;
  • To analyze each step of a project (preparation, implementation, evaluation and follow up) and develop creative solutions to improve these steps in terms of process and quality results.
  • To develop innovative methodologies that increase effective participation of all project actors involved in youth projects: partners, youngsters, local communities, and policymakers.
