Training Course Digital Youth Work: Past, Present, Future.

Dates: 8-16 May 2019

Venue: Bitola, FYROM

Eligible are 27 participants coming from: Czech Republic, Estonia, FYROM, Greece, Lithuania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain

Application deadline: 1st March 2019

This project aims at raising awareness on digital competences of youth work specialists and equipping them with the necessary know-how in order to create target group appropriate distance learning models.

General Description

Young people in Europe spend an increasing amount of their time consuming digital media (video streams, messaging, blogs or social media).

However, there is an obvious lack of competences of young people to use many online platforms for learning instead only for leisure and entertainment. These tools can provide a place for young people to learn, to share their experiences, to exchange their views, to have fun with their friends and to actively participate in society.

This project aims at raising awareness on digital competences of youth work specialists and equipping them with the necessary know-how in order to create target group appropriate distance learning models.

With specific objectives:
• To create mechanisms for the development of youth work specialists’ digital competencies;
• To gain new competences regarding non-formal education activity development and implementation from different online and offline perspectives;
• To facilitate learning and understanding on how to use online learning platforms such as Moodle, Coursera, Zoom, EdX, etc., for development and implementation of newly created and current non-formal education activities;
• To develop and test webinars on various topics and issues important to youth in the participating organizations’ communities;
• To understand the value and potentials of online learning in making their current and future activities more attractive and accessible to local youth;
• To provide networking opportunities and facilitate exchange among participating organizations and their members in order to create sustainable linkages in the field of digital competences;
• To create a compendium on development and implementation of online learning activities.

Distance education around the world has already demonstrated that access can be increased and costs can be cut. However many countries online and distance learning are still considered a second chance option.

Therefore, youth organizations will have to put in place exact quality assurance mechanisms in order to create content adjusted to online learning platforms and identified needs and learning objectives of their attendees. The impact for learners will be that they will have many morе choices for determining which courses to follow and with which organization.

The organizations which provide educational activities will practice both formal and non-formal approach. This will result with higher level of cross-institutional cooperation regarding development and implementation of various educational programmes in coming days.

Partnership building Activity. Inclusive Volunteering in Social Economy. Turkey

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

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.

Application deadline: 7th January 2019

How can you apply the “Art of Dialogue” approach in EU Youth Dialogue activities? The main focus of the training is to support those who facilitate the dialogue process or specific activities planned by National Working Groups within their work plans.

General Description

The “Art of Dialogue” is a set of methods, theories and approaches for participative and interactive group moderation and process design. It is based on frameworks such as “Art of Hosting”, “The Way of Council” or “Theory U”.

It has been developed in the course of working for the Structured Dialogue, first on the national level in Austria (2015-2017). During the Austrian EU presidency 2018 it was used to promote the Youth Goals as a common vision for youth in Europe and in running the EU Youth Conference in Vienna.

More info about the approach: Structured Dialogue Learning Map

The context of the training is the new EU Youth Strategy for 2019-2027, which is the European policy framework for young people in Europe. After the Structured Dialogue process, it puts the EU Youth Dialogue at the front, aiming to establish participation of young people in decision making process at all levels- from local, regional, national and European. This is a window of opportunity to include new approaches in implementing the EU Youth Dialogue.

We want to explore how to make use of the methods and attitudes that have proven successful in 6th cycle of the Structured Dialogue, in order to be more effective in facilitating meaningful dialogue among young people and stakeholders, building trust and cooperation among various stakeholders, promoting the EU Youth Dialogue

Each NWG is invited to send 2-3 trainers/facilitators or NWG members who facilitate the dialogue process, specific activities or events for NWGs. In addition, trainers/facilitators who implement activities at a national or European level (e.g. pool of trainers) are invited to apply.
