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.

The PBA will provide the participants with the necessary skills and support needed to find partners, develop a project and even submit it in 2020.

Aim of the PBA

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

Objectives

  • To create an opportunity to find good and reliable partners to make Mobility of Youth Workers projects based on the organisation’s needs;
  • 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.

Working methods

This PBA will be based on non-formal learning approaches encouraging the active involvement of participants, giving you space to take an active role, express yourselves, share good examples of practice and initiate new sustainable partnerships.

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Czech Republic, France, Germany, Lithuania, Slovak Republic

Application deadline: 17th June 2019

Learning how to take care of money at a young age can be crucial in ensuring good finances later in life. By implementing the two-phase project, we want to contribute to financial literacy in society by educating young people in their personal finances.

General Description

Learning how to take care of money at a young age can be crucial in ensuring good finances later in life. By implementing the two-phase project “Money does not grow on trees” under Erasmus+ program, we want to contribute to financial literacy in society by educating young people in their personal finances.

We think it is our responsibility to prepare the next generation to manage their financial affairs.

The project “Money does not grow on trees” is consisted out of 2 parts. The first part is the Partnership building activity or PBA. It is targeted for teachers, organization representatives and youth workers or anyone that has knowledge of financial literacy and would like to share his/her knowledge.

Together, we will concept the second phase, which is the Training Course (TC) for youth, and show young people how to deal with their own financial affairs.

Objectives:

  • Bringing professionals together to learn from each other and to share the best practices
  • Form new partnership bonds that could continue in the form of Erasmus+ initiatives/projects by using non-formal tools
  • Analysis of specific problems/ issues related to educational programs and approach to financial literacy.
  • Based on this knowledge, preparing sessions for the second project phase (creating methodology and program for the training course.)

Costs

 

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Accommodation and food

The hosting organisation of this offer will organise and covers the costs for accommodation and food.

Travel reimbursement

Travel costs will be reimbursed based on distance band and original receipts/tickets and provided bank account after the event.

  • Czech Republic – 20 euro
  • Slovak Republic – 180 euro
  • Germany, Lithuania – 275 euro
  • France – 820 euro

Participation fee

Each participant is invited to contribute to this course with 20 Euros.

A modest contribution from participants to the overall costs of a project helps to create a sense of investment and ownership as well as participants tend to value what they receive more when they have contributed to it. Those costs will contribute to the implementation of the project activities and raising the quality of the educational part as well as the overall project management.

PBA: Joining the Dots Through Outdoor Activity! A Contact Making Seminar-Youth Exchanges

Dates: 19-25 May 2019

Venue: Dublin / Galway, Ireland

Eligible are 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

Application deadline: 22nd March 2019

This is a contact making seminar for organisations looking to develop sustainable partnerships for Youth Exchanges involving young people with fewer opportunities.

General Description

For the most part, the event will be hosted in ‘Kilary Adventure Centre’ in Galway where participants will take part in some outdoor challenges and activities, as well as sessions designed to reflect on the learning outcomes from these activities, and how they might be integrated into a Youth Exchange programme.

The format has a dual purpose in that outdoor activities will be used during the Contact Making Seminar to support relationship building and cross-cultural communication; to break down barriers; to inspire leadership etc. It will also open up a space to explore how physical activities can be integrated into Youth Work, and Youth Exchanges in particular, to maximise the learning for the young people and to develop their skill set. Finally, we hope to demonstrate how the Learning Environment itself can enhance the overall success of a Youth Exchange.

The other main focus of the training will be based around identifying the needs of young people with fewer opportunities and the different tools needed to work with these young people. The programme will support participants to make links between local and European issues that impact young people.

The overall objectives of this activity are:

  • To meet your peers around European working doing inclusion youth work
  • To support youth workers to develop sustainable partnerships for inclusion youth mobility projects

  • Get a better understanding of the Erasmus+ Programme specifically in the field of KA1 Youth Exchanges
  • Develop youth workers understanding on how activity-based methodologies can contribute to young people personally, social and critical growth.
  • Gain an understanding of supports available for workers working with young people with fewer opportunities.

PBA: Game Changing

Venue: Cyprus

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Cyprus, Georgia, Greece, Israel, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 28th February 2019

The project aims to link the ‘worlds’ of youth work and football, so as to foster constructive and mutually beneficial cooperation between them, with a specific interest in supporting youth participation, social inclusion and women’s empowerment.

General Description

The Game Changing Project is a collaboration between the Erasmus+ National Agencies of Cyprus, Turkey, Italy, Portugal and UEFA, with the support of the Cyprus Football Association (CFA), the Football Association of England (FA) and the Romanian Football Federation (FRF). The project aims to link the ‘worlds’ of youth work and football, so as to foster constructive and mutually beneficial cooperation between them, with a specific interest in supporting youth participation, social inclusion and women’s empowerment.

Through this cooperation, the partners expect that the outcome of this project will be beneficial for young people, girls/women and under-represented groups, in their realms.

The Game Changing project includes two events that are designed to enable youth work practitioners, representatives of National Football Federations/Associations and young changemakers to learn from each other, to exchange best practices, as well as to initiate and develop collaborative projects in the framework of the Erasmus+ EU Programme, as well as of other programmes from the football and youth sectors:

Phase I: Contact Making Event (CME), to be held in Cyprus, 7 – 11 May 2019.

Phase II: Seminar in Turkey, in June/July 2019 (TBC).

Participants’ Profile

We are looking for 30 participants with the following profiles:

1. Youth work practitioners with experience in the fields of women’s empowerment and/or youth participation in civic life and decision-making, and/or social inclusion of under-represented groups, as well as with experience/an interest in collaborating with the football/sport sector.

2. “Young champions” – young changemakers aged 18 to 30, active in their communities, sport clubs or organisations, with a strong interest in football, willing to develop collaborative projects with the other actors involved in this initiative.

3. Representatives of National Football Federations/Associations with an interest in the themes of the project (youth participation, social inclusion and women’s empowerment) and with the capacity to develop new initiatives in their organisations, or implement constructive changes in the existing policies and programmes that will be generated as outcomes of this project.

Selected participants are expected to attend both events in order to maximise the impact of the project both on their development as active agents in their work, and on the progress of their organisations. Participants are expected to be willing to develop cooperation projects between football and youth work after the two events of the project.

Targeted Outcomes:

The creation of a network of 10 “young champions”/ young changemakers.

  • A better recognition of the important role that youth work plays in society (value creation, young people’s development and sense of belonging to society, etc.).
  • A new culture that will result from merging the youth field and football, characterised by innovative participation methods, such as co-management, deliberative participation, co-creation, participatory spaces, etc.
  • A review of programmes, structures and processes in line with best practice in diversity, equality, solidarity and inclusion.
  • An increase in young people actively engaged in policy, governance, decision making and programme implementation in football.

  • Better representation and engagement of young people in the structures of football (specifically females and ethnic minority groups).
  • The development of a common research agenda between the “worlds” of football and youth work.
  • A variety of developments by National Football Federations/Associations that will result from this project, i.e. setting up youth councils, developing more inclusive policies and programmes, setting up youth and female leadership programmes, etc..
  • The development of follow-up projects, e.g. cross-sector collaborative projects, toolkits, research maps, etc.
