The Star of Europe training will take you through a youth exchange project from its very beginning to the very end, highlighting young people’s involvement. You will also learn how to use the digital Star of Europe material in building the exchange. Learn How to Make REAL Youth Exchanges!

General Description

Whatever you have heard about youth exchanges before or however you have organised them before, this training is teaching you how to make youth exchanges like they are meant to be! You will learn how to support young people to make their own projects, and not to make the projects for them.

Focus on involvement and partnership:

The original idea of a youth exchange is a long term learning process for the groups of young people in participating countries. Young people are involved in a process, where they come up with the idea for the project, choose the topic for it and design the activities for its programme. They run the activities themselves and plan dissemination activities that they organise for other young people.

The process is linked to learning – the more the young people are involved in the process, the more new learning situations they end up in. In The Star of Europe, we will look at all the steps of youth exchange project, to see how the young people can be involved in all aspects of the project, learning new things throughout it.

We will also look at how the young people in each participating countries can be part of the process – that is how the learning is equal in all youth groups, not only the hosting one.

Unlike how many youth exchanges are organised, we want to promote the original idea of youth exchanges – and let the youth exchanges to be young people’s own projects, not projects planned by adults to young people.

Digital material supporting your process:

The Star of Europe has also its own extensive digital material, which was based on the printed material that was created earlier. Now both of these materials exist side by side, but the digital material is always available and can be used together with partners and the young people in every group.

Each step includes Learning Badges that young people can earn while working on the different elements of project planning. The badges show you the progress in your process and help the young people to see their involvement. After the process the badges help you and your young people to see what learning experiences you will forward to the Youthpasses.

In the training the digital material is used so that the participants will learn how to use it when they go back home to work with their young people.

If you want to see what is available or start using the Star of Europe material, please go to starofeurope.eu

Aims and objectives:

The aim of “The Star of Europe” is to get a comprehensive understanding of what a youth exchange project contains – from the idea, needs assessment of a project to the follow up activities. More specifically, the main objectives are:

  • To become familiar with the whole logic of life cycle of a youth exchange project
  • To increase the understanding of the value of full involvement of young people in youth exchanges
  • To become aware of learning opportunities of the young people within youth exchanges
  • To pay extra attention to the equal partnership and encourage partners to plan, prepare, implement and report the project together
  • To get acquainted with a Star of Europe digital platform as a tool for support of youth exchanges

Training for newcomers and experienced:

If you work regularly with youth groups, professionally or voluntarily, you are a good participant in this training. As a youth worker, youth leader or group leader, you already have a group of interested young people or an idea, how to find an interested group to work with.

You can be a newcomer or someone who has already organised youth exchanges, but has not involved young people in the planning of the projects before.

You will have to be over 18 years old. We prioritise applicants who work directly with a group of young people and who are interested in forming partnerships for future projects.

Training Course Time Travellers: The European Perspective

Dates: 15-23 May 2020

Venue: Ključ, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Albania, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Kosovo*, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Spain, Turkey

Application deadline: 1st April 2020

The training aims at transferring a methodology to implement and strengthen youth work in the field of remembrance. It builds on the principals of living memories by putting participants into their own and genuine historical perspective.

General Description

The training aims to deconstruct one of the sources of nationalism and racism, which is the concept of national history as provided in the framework of most curricula in European countries nowadays.

The training course “Time Travellers – The European Perspective” aims at transferring a methodology to implement and strengthen youth work in the field of remembrance and commemoration. It builds on the principals of living memories by putting young participants into the center of their own and genuine historical perspective and to create a personal and a local context of historical experience.

In result national history, which is in many cases also the history of living conflicts, retreats and personal history becomes the defining angle. This training course is aimed to transfer a large number of non-formal methods, which we have developed over the course of time and activities. We will introduce participants and their organisation to the different approved methods, techniques and activities, as well as means of dissemination and exploitations of our results.

The ultimate aim is to motivate and equip the participants to apply these tools in their own local and regional environment with their youth and to promote the principles of peaceful remembrance. Thereby they can support dialogue in their own societies and an atmosphere of understanding and last but not least a renewed curiosity for often underestimated topics of history: social development, emancipation, human rights and European common values.

The Training course will take place in Ključ, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Participants should be mainly from youth organisations that want to improve their profile through new approaches in the field of remembrance work and anti-racism trainings and youth work in intercultural contexts.

Participants will have a personal experience of the former war torn Bosnia and Herzegovina. They will learn new skills of research borrowed from social sciences that improve their experiences in needs assessment of future project. They will learn the methodology of “time travelling” into personal and local history.

The impact on the local surrounding will be that of recognition and respect. The organisations will profit from new ways of approaching anti-racism and trainings against xenophobia. Participants will be introduced to new applications and methods to improve the visibility of their own rural surrounding.

Conference with CSOs Active in the Field of Youth: Life beyond EU Funding. Imagining a Different Role for Youth Organisations in Europe

CSOs Active in the Field of Youth: Life beyond EU Funding. Imagining a Different Role for Youth Organisations in Europe. 
This forum aspires to foster civil society action and alliances that can challenge centralised EU policies and assert a different agenda for youth and a different role for youth organisations.

General Description

The two latest 7-year budgets of the European Union (2014-2020, 2021-2027) have seen a significant increase to the available funding for youth projects. The difficulties of youngsters to enter “adult life” due to structural obstructions and/or crises is a main reason behind this increase. While this relatively generous funding indicates a concern of ruling elites about the future of youngsters, it is questionable that it is just the quantity of available resources that defines the successes and failures of Brussels’ planning.

Youth projects, can indeed contribute to the approximation of youngsters from different countries, form a European identity, culture and “way of life”. The abundance of youth organisations that have sprung out of mobility projects and the culture of joyful learning, intercultural exchange and connectedness they have created, serves as proof. However, they cannot make up for decaying social policies of European states or the inability of the EU to pursue its social agenda.

These policies would need to target the least empowered and most vulnerable youngsters first; those individuals and groups are in most need of emancipation and agency. But for anyone who works in the field of youth and is grounded to social realities, it is obvious that this is rarely the case.

The contribution of EU-funded projects to the well-being of European societies is confined by harsh realities of cash-flow, resource management, constant need for visibility and new audiences, deadlines and reporting guidelines. These are all managerial concerns, largely disconnected from social challenges and their impact on youth. Still, it is against these indicators that the impact of youth organisations is measured.

This is expected. The ability to evaluate the effect of an organisation requires constant monitoring and deep knowledge of the community where they operate. But this is beyond the capacities, priorities and competences of the EC and its executive agencies.

The idea that properly fulfilling managerial duties can co-exist with significant results in youngsters’ lives, disregards the fact that we all have finite time and energy as well as that we need to balance work with our personal life and development.

In the best case, this line of thought leads to burn out of workers who try to balance quality and resource constraints. In the worst, it leads to the normalisation of the notion that (economic) survival should be the primary concern of youth organisations.

Organisations compete instead of making collective claims, network instead of pursuing alliances, write projects instead of listening to and working with youngsters, search for indicators of success that would make donors feel safe with their choices instead of asserting that risk-taking and uncertainty lays in the heart of any social initiative with a prospect of a real impact.

The second yearly meeting of Inter Alia’s network in the field of youth, sets off from these thoughts and aspires to foster alliances that can challenge ill-targeted, top-down policies and assert a different paradigm and agenda for youth organisations. Representatives will contribute their organisations’ experiences and practices in building ideas for action and intervention in all stages of policy making – conceptualisation, consultation, formulation, implementation and evaluation. Setting out from youngsters’ needs, the sessions will result in draft policy recommendations for forward-looking, sustainable allocation of EU resources in view of the new EU-budget ratification.

We invite all European organisations active in the field of youth who share our concerns and feel the need for reappraisal of the role of youth organisations and the empowerment of their social imprint to join!

Partner organisations will be financially supported for covering accommodation and travel expenses. The exact amount of the support will be announced soon and will depend on the number of participating members of the network.

Five sponsored positions for organisations outside the network are available. To apply, please fill in the following form

Venue: Genova, Italy

Eligible are 20 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – DE, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom

Training course within the framework of the project GloCal Recognition, funded by the European Union, aimed at the development of the Turkish Civil Society.

General Description

The training will instruct third-sector representatives and operators on the management of local volunteering projects and on the GloCal Recognition Certification system: during the week, participants from Italy, Europe and Turkey, will be confronted and trained on how to manage, engage and support local volunteers in their own organization.

In addition, they will be coached on the functioning of GloCal Recognition Certification Platform through theoretical explanations followed by practical parts in which participants will test the system in small groups.

There will be a part dedicated to the analysis of acquired skills and to the support of volunteers, both in group situations and in individual interviews. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to develop new partnerships and projects with the other participating organizations, while at the same time being able to meet representatives of some of Turkey’s leading non-profits.

Summary of the Project:

“GloCal Recognition” (no. TR2015 / DG / 01 / A5-02 / 397) is one of the 12 projects selected within the Programme ” “Unione Europea – Turchia Dialogo della Società Civile – V Schema di finanziamento della Società Civile” funded by the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the European Union itself. The goal of the programme is to promote cooperation between Turkish and European civil societies.

GloCal Recognition is developing a system for the recognition of soft skills acquired during local volunteering. The system will be adapted from “Global Recognition”, a platform previously created by Joint in cooperation with organizations from South America and Europe, that is, instead, aimed at the certification of international volunteering experiences. This Project will therefore foster lasting cooperation between Turkish and European NGOs and will enable youth and local organisations to add value at their work.

The main result we want to reach through GloCal Recognition is the creation of a platform translated into Italian, English and Turkish which will include:

  • A soft-skills Evaluation Framework and a system to issue the Certificate;
  • E-learning modules designed to support users in getting more understanding and awareness about their own soft-skills;
  • A toolkit featuring examples of non-formal education methodologies for both young people and Youth organisations, which will support them in the assessment process of the acquired skills.
  • The project also includes the promotion and dissemination of the platform through the web and various social media channels.

Participants:

Maximum of 10 participants from EU countries: they will be selected within people with a relevant and long-lasting experience in non-profit organizations working with local volunteers. Within these organizations, participants can be either volunteers or employed staff members, but the most important thing is that they need to be well acquainted with the work of their organization and be able to report to them what they’ve learned during the training.

Objectives:

  • To share good practices and to be trained on methodologies for the management and involvement of local volunteers;
  • To test the non-formal methodologies that will be complementary to the e-learning modules, aimed at supporting both young people and organizations in using the GloCal Recognition certification system;

  • To gather feedback on the GloCal Certification and support System;
  • To provide a chance for intercultural exchange and partnership building by promoting cooperation and intercultural understanding.

Results:

  • To increase the involved organisations’ management skills of volunteers;
  • To test non-formal methods to support the certification process;
  • To improve the GloCal Recognition certification and support System;
  • To increase participants’ intercultural skills and to create new partnerships.
