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.

Training Course Quality Wave: Training for Quality Ambassadors

Dates: 17-21 May 2020

Venue: Ostend, Belgium – FL

Eligible are 45 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, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, Partner Countries Neighbouring the EU

Application deadline: 9th March 2020

This 3 day training course empowers youth workers, youth leaders and project managers who are eager to discover and utilise the Quality tools developed by the EPLM platform and share the Quality approach with their peers.

General Description

Non-formal education, especially in learning mobility projects, can create life-changing experiences for young people and leave a great impact on the communities involved. If implemented carefully learning mobility projects can even contribute to youth-led social change in Europe and beyond.

Europe invests a lot in their youth by increasing the opportunities and funding for Programmes such as Erasmus+, European Solidarity Corps and activities of the Youth Department of the Council of Europe.

Unfortunately, some of the funded projects are of poor quality and at the same time, the programmes are not being used by many potential beneficiaries because of the existing thresholds and barriers.

Motivated by these insights, The European Platform on Learning Mobility (EPLM) developed useful tools to support Quality in learning mobility projects: the Quality App and the Quality Handbook

With this training, we want to support youth mobility professionals in using and promoting these tools so that the Quality approach can continue to spread and grow throughout Europe.

Do you want to surf with us on the Quality Wave?

The aim of this training course is to provide support for Quality! Learning mobility projects in times of increased focus on quantity (more budget) and empower Quality! Ambassadors throughout Europe to roll out the EPLM Quality Tools in their countries.

We will create space to:

  • Explore and experiment with EPLM Quality Tools: Q! App and Quality handbook
  • Have a critically constructive look at these tools
  • Share experience and stories between experienced Q! ambassadors and new ones
  • Build a vision on “Why Quality learning mobility is important”
  • Prepare international/national/local multiplying activities (training, promotion, support/coaching, E+ or ESC projects,…)

Are you a future Q! Ambassador? This little test might help you to find this out. How many boxes can you tick?

  • You are a youth mobility believer
  • No quantity without Quality is your motto
  • You have experience in excellent, moderate and/or poor quality mobility projects
  • You’re open to share your experiences with your peers

You are motivated to lift up the quality of your own projects and support newcomers in doing so

45 participants can attend this training. The target group is twofold:

  • Participants of the Q! Multipliers meeting in Budapest (July 2019) who want to share their experience as a Quality Ambassador on EU and/or national/regional/local level (max 15)
  • Participants who want to become a Q! Ambassador and are eager to share the Quality approach in their country (min 30)

We aim at reaching participants from a diversity of countries, including partner countries (sent by SALTOs). Preferably 2 or 3 participants per country with a diversity of profiles and experiences with youth mobility projects.

Each NA will be free to nominate the participants they consider most appropriate.

NAs engage themselves to support the future Q! Ambassadors in their local/national activities (Possibly funded by TCA/NET). NAs that already have planned to translate the Q! App or to set up national dissemination activities on Quality get priority in sending (future) Q! ambassadors.

Practical info:

This training course will be hosted by JINT, NA Belgium-Flanders in the city of Ostend (by the sea).

The meeting rooms are located in the Cultural Centre “De Grote Post
Accommodation will be offered in the playful Upstairs hotel (2 p bedrooms)
Arrivals are expected on the 17th may (preferably before 7 pm) and departures are on 21st may after breakfast.

Your Quality trainers’ team: Snezana Baclija Knoch (also Quality handbook editor), Sérgio Gonçalves (also Q! App administrator) and Sofie Van Zeebroeck (also EPLM member)

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.
