Szeged

Training Course: Youth work in culturally mixed areas

Dates: 2-10 May 2020

Venue: Szeged, Hungary

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Slovak Republic

Application deadline: 12th March 2020

During the training, participants discover various pedagogical approaches and methods; analyze different aspects of culture and interculturality, integration challenges and opportunities; and different online and offline tools and approaches.

General Description

We live in a time when more people choose to live outside of their home country than ever. According to the UN Population Division report 3.2 per cent of the world’s population live outside of their country of origin.

Through the years, around 72 million migrants have made their home in Europe. Only the European Union itself is a home to over 33 million people born outside of the EU. In addition, the most recent Eurostat figures show that more than 17 million citizens changed their country of birth within the EU for another EU country.

Demand for migrant workers to fill gaps in local labour markets is set to rise as Europe’s population ages. Conflicts in the Middle East are forcing more refugees to seek safety in the EU. The European societies are ethnically and culturally mixed, and the trend is growing. But as societies are becoming more mixed, the conflicts between the people from different cultures are increasing.

This also increases the demand for competencies, methods and tools which shall be put into practice from the youth workers who are already working with these people in order to improve the communication and cooperation for peacefully living together. Because if not, the young people will continue to create stereotypes and prejudices which will lead to hate speech, discrimination, conflicts and living in ghettos.

It is a fact that most of the learning experiences occurs in the formal environment, but the non-formal education is very important substitute and place where the young people – if are appropriately educated and motivated – can achieve great transformation of their lives.

However, very often the lack of resources and competencies that the youth workers have is that what can affect the final impact and result of those learning experiences. Also, various researches have shown that if people have positive and enriching experiences with other cultures then they are more likely to embrace diversity.

The idea of this project was driven from that fact, that we have to bring various methods and tools which the youth workers from culturally mixed areas can effectively use and by that develop their competencies for working with youth from different cultural backgrounds.

The project’s target group is: NGO trainers, facilitators, mentors, coaches, project managers and coordinators who are working in culturally mixed areas, directly with youth on a daily basis. The project will gather participants from 10 countries.

The core activity of the project is a 7-day training course in Szeged, Hungary between 2-10 May, 2020, where participants will discover various pedagogical approaches and methods; Analyze different aspects of culture and interculturality; the immigration situation, integration challenges and opportunities; Analyze the youth work situation, youth work competencies, portfolio and different online and offline tools and approaches.

Methodology: The training will be built up on a participatory and “child-centered” approach, where the participants during the whole training will experience various teaching methods and approaches.

The main aim of this project is to increase the competencies of youth workers about Intercultural communication and cooperation, and bring various teaching methods and pedagogical approaches for transferring that knowledge into their local realities while working with young people on a daily basis.

Participants will be coming from Slovakia, Hungary, North Macedonia, Germany, Finland, Denmark, Italy, Greece, Romania, and Spain. Through this call we are specifically searching for participants from Germany, Denmark, Greece and Slovakia.

The main aim of this training course is to empower and equip youth workers with the competences needed to work in a One 2 One relationship with young people in order to support their learning and development processes.

Then this course is for you!

Context and background of this training course:

In several areas of the European youth programmes, youth workers and trainers are increasingly required to be able not only to work with groups of young people but, also, to accompany individuals through the various learning, professional and personal development processes on offer.

Although one-to-one dialogue may seem like an obvious and natural form of communication, for youth work practitioners it has also become a professional requirement. Therefore many youth workers feel they need training in order to appropriately support young people through their individual development and learning processes.

We are very happy to invite you to apply for the 5th edition of this successful course, which will be held in Hattingen, Germany.

What does “One 2 One” Stand for?

“One 2 One” is a little play on words. One 2 one means face to face i.e. the individual relationship, which we are focusing on during the training course.

  • To practice different one-2-one learning support methods and approaches;
  • To develop the skill of initiating & supporting self-reflection about learning;
  • To reflect on how supporting learning individually and in groups complement and influence
  • each other;
  • To exchange about various types of contexts (from local youth work to international mobilities) and approaches such as mentoring, coaching and tutoring.

The course will be based on and supported by the following publications:

  • One 2 One – Supporting Learning Face to Face
  • The Competence Model for Youth workers to work internationally

Within the training course you will also learn more about how to implement the Youthpass process.
