Youngsters grow up in a digitally connected world. What do these developments mean for youth work? Discover the concept of digital youth work, best practices, learn how to adapt youth work practices and how to proactively meet young people’s needs?

General Description

Young people grow up in a digitally connected world, where automation, machine learning and artificial intelligence are no longer futuristic concepts, but already a reality.

For young people, the difference between “online” and “offline” is increasingly blurred. Social media and internet usage have established themselves as important parts of youth culture.

  • What do these developments mean for youth work?

To be fair – youth workers don’t need to be technical experts when it comes to new media and technology. However, they should recognize that young people are growing up in a digital era and that they need support in navigating the online aspect of their lives.

During these 4 day conference youth workers from across Europe will be invited to learn, explore and exchange about the various forms and best practices of “digital youth work”.

Through panel discussion, keynote speeches, as well as workshops and project presentations at a fair, participants will benefit from many valuable contributions from field experts and from exchanges with other participants on a variety of topics including information and data literacy, communication through digital channels, problem solving by using digital tools, online safety and many more.

Ultimately, they will have the opportunity to discuss and formulate the needs and wishes of the sector for the digital youth work in presence of policy makers.

Training Course: DocuSpeech for Human Rights Education

Dates: 2-11 September 2019

Venue: Yerevan, Armenia

Eligible are 31 participants coming from: Armenia, Georgia, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal

Application deadline: 12th July 2019

The project “DocuSpeech for Human Rights Education” is a 10 day Training Course that will take place in Yerevan, Armenia. During the activity educational video materials will be created to use in youth work to promote Human Rights Education

General Description

The project “DocuSpeech for Human Rights Education” is a 10 day Training Course that will take place in Yerevan, Armenia. It will gather 31 youth leaders, youth workers from Norway, Luxembourg, Portugal, Armenia, Georgia, Germany and Poland.

During the activity educational video materials will be created to use in youth work to promote Human Rights Education. As an outcome of the project the team and the participants will prepare the recommendations for the educators/trainers for using effectively video-making in human rights education.

The idea of the project is a follow-up of the TC “DocuSpeech against Hate Speech” (1-10 December, 2018, Luxembourg) which became a proof that film-making is a strategic tool for the youth workers as media tools are being used in the education of young people to increase understanding of peace and tolerance.

During the project 5 video materials and the session outlines were developed to use them in educational process. The sessions are already experienced effectively. Film and especially documentary films help youth workers to expand the world of their beneficiaries, introducing them to values, struggles, innovations, and beliefs beyond our daily experience.

Today, the short form documentary has filled a key role in both formal education and non-formal education. Using short documentary films in a meaningful and compelling way for young people is building social and emotional awareness on issues of intolerance, discrimination and Human Rights.

Objectives of the Project

• To develop the competences of the participants to produce educational video materials to use in youth work to promote Human Rights Education;
• To foster social inclusion especially of the young people with disabilities and fewer opportunities in general;
• To develop the competences of youth workers and youth leaders in making films in various formats;
• To develop non-formal framework for film-making as a tool for transformative learning;

• To promote understanding of the principles of democracy and participation and its influence on young people’s lives;
• To create audiovisual tools (will be uploaded also on the SALTO toolbox), with the concept of educational documentary;
• To support the field presence of the European Commission in order to promote the values behind the institution.

Seminar: You(th) work with refugees in non-formal education

Dates: 21-22 November 2019

Venue: Youth Centre Märjendall, Luxembourg

Application deadline: 23rd September 2019

Youth workers are increasingly confronted with people who with a migration background or refugee experience. Inclusion in society is a key!

General Description

This is an exchange of good practices for Belgian, German, French, Austrian, Dutch, Swiss and Luxembourg youth workers.

Nowadays youth workers all over Europe are increasingly working with people who have a migration background or refugee experience. Inclusion in society is a key element to help these people feel good in a country.

Large opportunities are given by this diversity not only for the people who have recently arrived in a country, but also for people, who have already been living here for a longer time. In this inclusion process, non-formal education can play an important role, as this field provides the perfect space for intercultural learning experiences.

Some challenges are the same for all countries; however, every country has its own complexity due to its political, infrastructural, geographical and financial situation. An exchange with youth workers of other countries is needed to see how they deal with the situation and which long-term projects or activities they offer.

New input for the institutions and NGOs, the exchange of best practices and the potential for new cooperation between two or more countries could be an outcome of this seminar and inspire participating youth workers in their daily work.

The training brings together youth workers from Belgium, Germany, France, Austria, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Luxembourg, to achieve the following aims:

  • Empower youth workers working with young refugees and asylum seekers;
  • Exchange of best practices from different countries;
  • Strengthen the international cooperation between youth workers and institutions;
  • Initiate future international cooperation projects.

The program of this two-day seminar in the Youth Centre Märjendall includes a keynote speech and best practice presentations, three workshops from which the participants can choose two, exchange sessions, as well as a networking event.

Participants profile:

  • Youth workers, educators, trainers and teachers applying to this course are expected:
  • Be already involved in working with young refugees and asylum seekers in non-formal settings;
  • Be committed to attend the seminar for its entire duration;
  • Be able to work in English, as this will be the working language;
  • Be motivated to share experiences, to learn from the other and be open for new international cooperation.

Hackerspaces, Fab Labs, Makerspaces are places where ideas become projects. Discover how to prepare young people to the challenges of a digital world by tackling their curiosity and creativity in the context of ICT and exchange experiences with makers.

General Description

Makerspaces in digital youth work

A hands-on training course for youth workers, who want to work with youngsters in makerspaces and create a network in the field of digital youth work and creative e-skills.

Hackerspaces, Fab Labs, Makerspaces – these are the places where ideas become projects and where information technologies are just a tool to achieve something bigger. What that might be is completely up to you. And to the youngsters you’re working with, of course!

With new technologies becoming more and more important in our everyday lives, as well as in our professional careers, it is crucial to include them in youth work activities and make sure that the next generation lives up to be competent and enthusiastic ICT creators instead of mere users.

This training course will be focused on an active exchange between makers to discover how to prepare young people to the challenges of a digital world by tackling their curiosity and creativity in the context of ICT.

Makerspaces offer a non-formal learning experience in fields such as robotics, 3D printing, programming, reverse engineering, design, electronics and many more. They encourage youngsters to overcome their fear of contact, discover the endless possibilities of tinkering, try out new things, make mistakes, learn from them and become confident creators themselves.

At the same time, makerspaces become social hubs for interaction and personal development – a place where youth work can happen in the most creative way!

This training is for you if you are:

  • Working with young people in a non-formal environment
  • Enthusiastic about the possibilities of new technologies and digital tinkering
  • Working with youngsters in a makerspace or similar institution or planning to set up one
  • Willing to share your knowledge and exchange best practices
  • Supported by your organization to become part of an international network of “maker-enthusiastic” youth workers

The central hub of this training will be “Base1” – the Makerspace run by the National Youth Service in Luxembourg.

During 4 full days of training, we will also take you to some other creative spots in Luxembourg, to make sure your brain gets enough food for thought and inspiration, so that, at the end of this course, we will be able to lay the foundation of a network of creative digital youth work.
