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: StageCraft for Youth Workers

Dates: 3-10 August 2019

Venue: Sluňákov, Horka nad Moravou, Olomouc, Czech Republic

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Spain, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 30th June 2019

Develop advanced communication, presentation and facilitation skills for youth work, with an experienced team combining approaches such as theatre, comedy, storytelling, psychology, sociology, education, music, social & creative community work.

General Description

“StageCraft for Youth Workers” is the second edition, funded by the Erasmus+ programme and promoted by the Czech NGO Vice Versa, of a training format on advanced communication, presentation and facilitation skills development, targeting primarily youth and social workers and educators.

The project is a 7 days residential training which combines approaches such as theatre, comedy, storytelling, psychology, sociology, education, music, social & creative community work.

The project will take place in the Czech Republic, close to the city of Olomouc, in the beautiful ecological centre Sluňákov, from the 3rd to the 10th of August 2019 (travel days included). It will involve 24 participants and 4 trainers from 10 different European countries (Italy, Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and United Kingdom).

The objectives of the training course are:

• To develop and build on a greater understanding of the presentation and engagement skills and experiences of youth workers;
• To explore and understand the effects of effective presentation and engagement with an audience of young people and in the role of youth worker;
• To gain a greater awareness of the theory behind “Stagecraft” taken from the fields of psychology, sociology, education, theatre and creative community (comedy, music and drama);
• To identify and realise the opportunities to put the skills developed into practice;

A Word on the Approach

The course seeks to develop what we think are the advanced skills – sometimes neglected – of being able to use the environment, our physiology, our body language and the content of our message to make our youth work even more effective. We will draw from applied psychology and from skills-sets used in theatre by professional presenters and comedians, to make the training diverse and exciting.

Participants will have opportunities to reflect on the fact that – as well as expensive and ubiquitous technology – there are many other resources and skills we can use to keep young people engaged, and develop effective relationships with them. Our course will be highly interactive, we will apply each methodology on the spot, and participants will have many chances to challenges themselves in and out of their comfort zones to develop new awareness and skills. Be prepared for some real Stagecraft thrills!

CAMINO is a training course on value-based assistance in NFE. It aims at training experienced educators and trainers in youth work to become equipped in dealing with intra and interreligious dialogue within an intercultural youth work setting.

General Description

DBYN has a tradition of using intra- and interreligious dialogue in non-formal education. In our educational methodology we refer to this as value-based assistance or Salesian chaplaincy.

It allows young people from all worldviews to share their values in life, refraining from any form of proselytism. This preventive approach puts young people in the centre. It builds their intercultural and social competences allowing them to see through cultural and religious stereotypes. These competences enable their participation in building their local communities through their active engagement as volunteers.

Project summary

CAMINO is a 6-day training course on value-based assistance in non-formal education. It aims at training experienced educators and trainers in youth work to become equipped in dealing with intra-and interreligious dialogue within an intercultural youth work setting.

With this training course, DBYN wants to commit developing and transferring our expertise in interreligious dialogue from grassroots level to European level.

The training course takes place in Benediktbeuern, Germany from the 26th of August until the 2nd of September 2019.

Aims

The main aim of this training course is to develop and implement a qualitative learning programme on value-based assistance in non-formal education, aimed at generating strategic impact on DBYN and the wider European youth sector. In order to put achieve this aim, we put forward 3 objectives:

  • To train 25 young educators and trainers in value-based assistance through a qualitative non-formal learning programme, aimed at setting up a sustainable pool of Salesian chaplains.
  • To collect new methods, approaches, insights and policy recommendations for value-based assistance within non-formal learning, from the perspective of intra- and interreligious dialogue, and make them available as resource through online platforms.
  • To develop a qualitative non-formal learning programme, and publish it the format of a training manual which can be disseminated within our network, to other faith-based INGYOs and the wider European youth sector.

Provide a space to promote partnerships for quality Mobility of Youth Workers projects, to discuss different activities eligible within Erasmus+ Programme, and reflect about the role of youth workers and young leaders in the elaboration of projects.

General Description

Many youth organisations and institutions lack funding to further educate/train their youth workers. The Erasmus+ Programme offers a project type called Mobility of Youth Workers.

This project type can be tailor made to serve the needs of your organisation and its youth workers, either in the form of trainings, study visits, job shadowing or other formats. By making an international project together with youth workers from other European countries you can get the funding you need to strengthen your youth work.

  • To understand what is needed to plan a Mobility of Youth Workers project of good quality;
  • To create a solid network of contacts and partnerships;
  • To understand the impact and future social change a Mobility of Youth Worker can have for the organisation and within the local community.

Target group

The partner building activity is open for voluntary and professional youth workers, working directly with young people on a local level. Participants should be able to make decisions regarding partnerships.

The participant’s organisation/institution should be interested in organising a Mobility of Youth Worker project within the frame of the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.
