Partnership building Activity. Inclusive Volunteering in Social Economy. Turkey

Image result for ANKARA

PBA: Inclusive Volunteering in Social Economy

Dates: 30 April – 4 May 2019

Venue: Ankara, Turkey

Eligible are max 25 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 10th January 2019

SALTO I&D and the Turkish National Agency for Erasmus+ Youth programme would like to see more young people with fewer opportunities taking part in volunteering projects.

General Description

Do you have experience working with individuals with special needs such as disability, social issues, mental challenges or an organisational environment that would welcome young people with such needs? Perhaps you’re experienced with volunteering but need more partners who can host these young people? Or maybe you just want to make a difference to young people’s lives…

Then this partnership building activity is for you! We would like to see more young people with fewer opportunities taking part in volunteering projects, but many hosting projects are not adapted or do not provide the needed extra support for young people (18-30 years) with special needs.

We believe that social economy organisations, with the necessary structures in place to support volunteers from disavantaged background in their activities, could become the perfect hosting place for these young people.

Hosting European volunteers gives not only the opportunity to change lives but the chance to add an international dimension and increase organisational capacity. We therefore want to bring ‘social economy’ organisations together with inclusion, youth and volunteering fields to explore the possibilities, advantages and concerns of having an European Volunteer.

Following a 2017 Inclusion & Diversity Strategy Steering Group meeting with representatives of social economy and the Youth and Vocational Education Forum 2018 (hosted in UK as part of the long term Toward’s Collaborative Practice), social economy organisations have been identified as often having projects or activities that are particularly directed towards people in underprivileged situations.

Despite frequently seeking committed volunteers to support their work, many organisations remain unaware of European volunteering funding opportunities, requirements and structures – such as the European Solidarity Corps. This partnership-building activity is a follow-up of the training course under the same topic taking place in Glasgow 10-14 December 2018.

This 3-day activity will take place in Ankara from 30th April (arrival day) to 4th May (departure) 2019 and it will be a unique opportunity to find partners to create inclusive volunteering projects in the framework of ESC. Although the programme also covers jobs and traineeships opportunities, this activity will only focus on quality volunteering projects.

General aim:

To introduce European volunteering projects to social economy organisations and encourage partnerships with inclusion, youth and volunteering organisations for quality, sustainable volunteering projects for young people with fewer opportunities.

Objectives:

– To get acquainted with the existing opportunities for youth volunteers’ placement, under European Solidarity Corps
– To share different practices on how to involve volunteers with fewer opportunities
– To motivate social economy organisations to host and send volunteers with fewer opportunities
– To develop skills in Erasmus+/ESC project management, specifically on volunteering initiatives
– To foster partnership building of potential hosting/supporting organisations equipped to support young people with fewer opportunities

Profile of participants at the course:

– Staff members/volunteers of social economy and volunteering organisations able to work on inclusion or directly with young people with fewer opportunities
– Youth workers (grassroots – involved in outreach youth work and directly working with young people with fewer opportunities)
– Staff members/volunteers involved in inclusion organisations
– Able to work in (international) English
– From ESC programme countries
– Former participants of the TC held in Glasgow (December 2018) are strongly encouraged to apply.

Training course for “mainstream” youth work organisations, motivated to start working on inclusion & diversity issues and/or include more diverse groups in their international projects.

General Description

Many organisations would like to open up their international activities for all young people, but they often find it very challenging to reach out, include or work with young people with fewer opportunities, as they are scared that it might be too difficult, lacking know how or just don’t know how to start with it.

This short taster course aims to show organisations how to be more inclusive and actively involve young people with fewer opportunities in their future Erasmus+ Youth & European Solidarity Corps projects. It should introduce some basic concepts, inspire, give examples and help them build partnerships.

Objectives:

  • To gain a basic knowledge on creating an inclusive & diverse, international project.
  • To get inspired for developing inclusive projects and reaching out to diverse groups of young people.
  • To explore inclusion possibilities of the Erasmus+ Youth programme & European Solidarity Corps
  • To find potential partners for the future Erasmus+ Youth projects & European Solidarity Corps

Profile of participants:

Youth workers, youth leaders, project managers:

  • who are doing more “mainstream” youth work, but are motivated to start working on inclusion & diversity issues or reaching out to some of the inclusion groups.
  • Have done some international activities already, but it’s not a must.
  • Who want to learn how to organise an inclusive international activity.

Venue: Tallinn, Estonia

Eligible are max 27 participants coming from: Austria, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Italy, Latvia, Portugal, Romania, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 8th October 2018

This training course will give time and space to share and gain knowledge and skills on how to work strategically with young people in NEET situation, how to cooperate to use Erasmus+Youth and European Solidarity Corps as a tool in youth work.

General Description

Often we do our work and would never imagine that there are other youth workers working with similar issues and similar groups of youngsters. Sometimes we think on where to get new ideas and inspiration to continue our work with young people.

We invite you to attend this training to meet other collegues from around Europe and find out about their experiences, share your practice, get new ideas and inspiration for your work with young people in NEET situation.

Natasha Gudakovska and Paul Kloosterman (Trainers of the training course)

This training course will bring together professionals working with young people in NEET situation and those working in organisations which offer young people international youth work opportunities (especially through Erasmus+ Youth / European Solidarity Corps).

The TC will give time and space to participants to share and gain knowledge and skills on how to work strategically with young people in NEET situation, how to use Erasmus+ Youth and other international youth work possibilities as a tool in their work and to find a way into trustworthy partnerships on national and international level and good quality projects.

There are many young people, who due to their life situation miss out the opportunities that are often promoted as open for all. Those are the young people who might in many ways be the ones who benefit the most from a possibility to be involved together with their peers from other countries in an international project or voluntary activity.

Background

This training course is organized in the framework of the Erasmus+ Youth NA’s strategic partnership on Inclusion. The main objective of this partnership is to improve and increase the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities in the programme, in line with the Erasmus+ Inclusion and Diversity Strategy in field of youth.

This partnership fosters sustainable engagement and capacity building of organizations either already working with young people with fewer opportunities in international activities through Erasmus+ Youth or those organizations planning to do so. An important part of an international cooperation is a strong partnership of organisations, especially when it comes to involvement of young people with fewer opportunities.

It is important to cooperate with trustful partners both in your own country and abroad to make sure that young people taking part in an international project get support according to their abilities and needs. It is also important to know the young people you and your partners work with and the realities in your partner countries.

The main objectives of the training:

  • To understand the different concepts of young people in NEET situation on international level;
  • To understand the different realities of young people in NEET situation in the involved countries;
  • To understand how Erasmus+ Youth / European Solidarity Corps can be used to include young people in NEET situation (incl real examples with highs and lows of the work);
  • To know tools to work with young people in NEET situation within Erasmus+ Youth/ESC framework; 
  • To develop partnerships to implement Erasmus+ Youth / ESC projects both on international and national level;
  • To find ways to work more strategically and in cooperation with other organisations to involve young people in international youth work.

Team The TC will be developed in an international team of NA’s and trainers, Natasha Gudakovska and Paul Kloosterman.
