In YOPM! we will work to improve the management and the participation in youth field and specially Youth Organizations: actors, structure, communication, decision making process, planning and partnership.

General Description

We will discover Erasmus+ KA2 as a tool to empower youth structures and organisations. Many organizations in the Youth field have the need to increase the quality in their internal management and participation processes, as a way to increase the quality of the national and international projects they develop. The creation of long term international partnerships is also a challenge for them.

The Main Aim of YOPM! Training course is to improve the management of youth structures and the quality of their projects, to increase the strength and confidence in working with partners in Erasmus+ context and to propose different ways of participation.

The Specific Objectives are:

  • To understand the importance of participatory processes and coordination
  • To practice strategies in order to create participative spaces.
  • To question the traditional roles in the organizations.
  • To promote the use of different techniques in the decision making process
  • To improve the management of the organizations, especially in comunication and transparency.
  • To discover collaborative working tools, for internal use in organizations and external with partners.
  • To reinforce the importance of connecting Youth Policy (EU Youth Strategy) in Erasmus+ projects.

Methodology:

The team will create a supportive space, in which the participant is the focus and responsible of his/her own learning process. The main resource will be the group, and learning will be based on the co-creation process in between participants and team.

Positive and participative attitude towards learning, including humour, openness and readiness to learn from experience and mistakes. The approach of the team is based on non-formal education methods and promoting spaces for informal and peer to peer learning.

PBA: Inclusive Volunteering in Social Economy

Dates: 30 April – 4 May 2019

Venue: Ankara, Turkey

Eligible are max 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

SALTO I&D and the Turkish National Agency for Erasmus+ Youth programme would like to see more young people with fewer opportunities taking part in volunteering projects.

General Description

Do you have experience working with individuals with special needs such as disability, social issues, mental challenges or an organisational environment that would welcome young people with such needs? Perhaps you’re experienced with volunteering but need more partners who can host these young people? Or maybe you just want to make a difference to young people’s lives…

Then this partnership building activity is for you! We would like to see more young people with fewer opportunities taking part in volunteering projects, but many hosting projects are not adapted or do not provide the needed extra support for young people (18-30 years) with special needs.

We believe that social economy organisations, with the necessary structures in place to support volunteers from disavantaged background in their activities, could become the perfect hosting place for these young people.

Hosting European volunteers gives not only the opportunity to change lives but the chance to add an international dimension and increase organisational capacity. We therefore want to bring ‘social economy’ organisations together with inclusion, youth and volunteering fields to explore the possibilities, advantages and concerns of having an European Volunteer.

Following a 2017 Inclusion & Diversity Strategy Steering Group meeting with representatives of social economy and the Youth and Vocational Education Forum 2018 (hosted in UK as part of the long term Toward’s Collaborative Practice), social economy organisations have been identified as often having projects or activities that are particularly directed towards people in underprivileged situations.

Despite frequently seeking committed volunteers to support their work, many organisations remain unaware of European volunteering funding opportunities, requirements and structures – such as the European Solidarity Corps. This partnership-building activity is a follow-up of the training course under the same topic taking place in Glasgow 10-14 December 2018.

This 3-day activity will take place in Ankara from 30th April (arrival day) to 4th May (departure) 2019 and it will be a unique opportunity to find partners to create inclusive volunteering projects in the framework of ESC. Although the programme also covers jobs and traineeships opportunities, this activity will only focus on quality volunteering projects.

General aim:

To introduce European volunteering projects to social economy organisations and encourage partnerships with inclusion, youth and volunteering organisations for quality, sustainable volunteering projects for young people with fewer opportunities.

Objectives:

– To get acquainted with the existing opportunities for youth volunteers’ placement, under European Solidarity Corps
– To share different practices on how to involve volunteers with fewer opportunities
– To motivate social economy organisations to host and send volunteers with fewer opportunities
– To develop skills in Erasmus+/ESC project management, specifically on volunteering initiatives
– To foster partnership building of potential hosting/supporting organisations equipped to support young people with fewer opportunities

Profile of participants at the course:

– Staff members/volunteers of social economy and volunteering organisations able to work on inclusion or directly with young people with fewer opportunities
– Youth workers (grassroots – involved in outreach youth work and directly working with young people with fewer opportunities)
– Staff members/volunteers involved in inclusion organisations
– Able to work in (international) English
– From ESC programme countries
– Former participants of the TC held in Glasgow (December 2018) are strongly encouraged to apply.

Training Course: Asiti Urban Games

Dates: 1-30 April 2019

Venue: Bologna, Italy

Eligible are 15 participants coming from: Italy, Poland, Portugal, Spain

Application deadline: 20th December 2019

Bootcamp ASITI URBAN GAMES in Italy. One month non formal education in design and gamification.

General Description

In recent years, Europe has visibly been marked by terrorist attacks perpetrated in different capitals.

Cities are the places where many religions and philosophical movements coexist, and where European citizens have been living in a climate of fear and distrust in recent years, public places of life are often guarded, militarized and targets of violence and dramatic episodes.

In an attempt to address the issue of the growth of fundamentalism, mistrust and exclusion, increasing discrimination, European institutions have an open dialogue with religious and non-confessional, first referring to Article 17 of the Treaty on the Functioning of European Union (TFEU), introduced by the Lisbon Treaty, providing for the first time a legal basis for an open, transparent and regular work between EU institutions and religions, religious and philosophical and non-confessional.

Creativi108, inspired by the commitment of promoting tolerance and mutual respect as important features of the European Community, through the Aşîtî Games project aims to encourage the reduction of the impact of terrorist acts by providing a positive example of peaceful integration and peaceful coexistence among ethnic citizens and different religion. Generating, therefore, useful tools for the prevention of religious extremism among young people.

A Bootcamp, proposed in Bologna (IT), will involve 15 young Youth Workers from Italy, Portugal, Spain and Poland, in a multi-religious context. The goal is a multidisciplinary intensive non-formal education laboratory and social innovation for the generation of Urban Games. their dissemination across Europe will be supported by a careful dissemination plan in four European cities, thanks to a media campaign on social networks and the involvement of local stakeholders.

Youth workers will be changemakers for their community, positive influencers and organizers of the Aşîtî Games events, created to play in urban spaces from twenty to fifty young people and at the same time in the city.

They will become the bearers of a new methodology aimed at the prevention of religious intolerance, active citizenship and participation in democratic and civil life in Europe.

The current developments in Europe raise some concern about its future. The main concern these days is to preserve European principles and prevent a return to nationalist tendencies.

General Description

The current developments in Europe raise some concern about its future. While Europe was and is in a constant state of flux, the UK’s decision to exit the European Union is an unprecedented indicator of a growing mistrust vis-à-vis an open and solidary Europe. The main concern these days is to preserve European principles and prevent a return to nationalist tendencies.

The idea to discuss Europe’s current situation and the potential role of youth policy and youth work in fostering the European spirit is rooted in the “shock day” in June 2016 when Brexit happened, but also in the growing nationalism and populism across Europe. The list of current challenges is long, beginning with the lack of solidarity between European countries in essential political issues, in particular the integration and hosting of refugees and the social divide.

The National Agencies for Erasmus+ Youth in Action and the European Solidarity Corps from Germany, Slovenia and Italy in cooperation with the EU-Council of Europe youth partnership will host the conference

“Regaining Europe – The Role of Youth Work in Supporting European Cohesion”

Why having a conference?

The organisers of the event are facing the above mentioned challenges on a daily basis and with increasing concerns, in particular regarding the upcoming elections to the European Parliament. They are convinced the European idea needs to be renewed. It would need a new European narrative that responds to the realities of everyday European life. The idea is to discuss the current situation in Europe and the potential role of youth policy and youth work, including the programmes Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps, in helping to restore the European spirit and foster European cohesion.

Aims of the conference

Ideas and motivations to organize the conference are to create an environment for critical debate on European values and the future of Europe while making youth work more political and more European. Accordingly, the conference aims at reflecting on common European issues such as democracy, citizenship, solidarity and the social dimension of Europe as well as motivating and mobilizing participants, in particular young people, to act for the idea of a strong Europe. It will provide an opportunity to exchange on shared European values and the future of Europe and to deepen the dialogue beyond borders and between citizens.

The conference shall also contribute to the reflections on the new EU Youth strategy and the EU campaign “12 ideas”.

Target groups

About 120 participants are expected to take part in the conference; among them will be youth workers from diverse levels and backgrounds as well as policy-makers, decision-makers, officials, researchers, stakeholders and members of European networks in the field of youth.

The Manifesto

It is planned to publish prior to the conference a Manifesto on Youth Work in Europe, summarizing the current situation in Europe from the perspective of young people and identifying demands and possible solutions. It will be drafted by an editorial group of experts and serve as a basis for reflection in the conference. Following the conference the Manifesto will be revised by the expert group in accordance with the discussions at that very place and largely published.

The programme

The programme foresees a welcome and interactive opening session on the first day. Inspirational keynote speeches including buzz groups in the morning of the second day titled “Regaining Europe” will be followed by a panel discussion representing participants from diverse backgrounds such as European institutions, representatives from National Ministries responsible for youth, public administrations, National Agencies and the civil society.

Eight parallel expert fora from the afternoon of the second day on will discuss topics such as democracy development, nationalism and populism, diversity, inclusion and inequality, dignity, migration, solidarity and human rights.

A creative sharing of forum results will take place in the morning of the third day, followed by an Open Space on ‘Youth work, youth policy, young people – what is our role in shaping Europe?’. Results of the open space sessions will be shared in the late afternoon. A farewell party with special guests will close the day. On the fourth and last day a panel will be looking at the European Union from outside, from China, USA, Arabian countries as well as Eastern European and South Eastern European countries, before summing up the lessons learned and discussing next steps.

Call for participants

The selection of participants will be based on this call. Participants should be ready to share practical and theoretical knowledge on the topics of the conference and be open to controversial standpoints within and outside the youth field. Furthermore, they should be ready to share specific experiences in international youth work and its development, building on Erasmus+ Youth programme and the European Solidarity Corps or other relevant European programmes; participants may be youth workers, paid or volunteering, representatives of youth organisations and other experts in the field of youth.

Selection criteria

The organisers will aim at composing a group of participants representing the widest possible diversity of perspectives and experiences from across the European youth field. The composition shall be balanced and diverse in terms of geographical, gender, professional backgrounds including local youth work and youth movements from European level; social and/or cultural groups underrepresented in political dialogues will be particularly considered in composing the conference participant’s group.

This trainer skills workshop (TSW) intends to expand trainers’ toolkits with reflective approaches and to equip them with the skills to plan and implement reflection as part of the learning processes.

General Description

This trainer skills workshop (TWS) intends to expand trainers’ toolkits with reflective approaches and to equip them with the skills to plan and implement reflection as part of the learning processes. The Trainer Skills Workshop on the Art to Reflect will focus on:

– Practical skills to support participants with valuing and using reflection as an essential part of learning;
– Knowledge and Awareness of designing and delivering effective reflection sessions, adjusted to various learning environments and educational approaches;
– Supporting learners in reflective space and practice in the context of the European Training Strategy (ETS) – in the field of youth.

Participants will get the possibility to:

– Explore the competence area of “Learning to learn” in the ETS Competence Model for Trainers and its interconnectedness with other Competence areas;
– Share experiences and creative methods of individual and group reflection processes during training courses and related learning activities;
– Linking this reflective experience to participants’ training practices;
– Experience a variety of individual reflection and reflection groups;
– Self-reflect: the trainer as learner (individual and within the team).

Trainer Skill Workshops (TSW) are offered twice a year as part of a strategic long-term cooperation between NAs and SALTO T&C RC, coordinating European training offers for trainers. It supports advanced trainers exploring a certain area of trainer work and related competences of the ETS Competence Model for Trainers. In the context of TSWs, advanced means that the trainer-learner has the capacity to reflect on their practice as a trainer. This also implies a capacity for [self] assessment.

Target Group & Team of Trainers *TSWs are targeting trainers who already have a long-term experience with training in the field of youth. We do not wish to set a strict minimum number of years of experience or a number of training courses but rather focus on the need for applicants to have the capacity to reflect on their practice as trainers, which generally require several years of regular practice. The training activity is for trainers who wish to develop their competence with regard to particular areas/skills and transfer the learning to their youth work practice.

The team of this TSW is composed of Gabi Steinprinz and Joanna Wrońska.

Context: This Activity is organized by the “Trainer Competence Development” project: The Austrian, Dutch, Czech, Estonian, German, Irish, Polish, Slovenian and Spanish Erasmus+: Youth National Agencies together with the SALTO Training and Cooperation RC develop and carry out this long-term NA strategic partnership project.

Supporting the competence development of trainers is an important aspect to ensure the high quality of youth worker trainings in Europe. The ETS therefore calls for the development of a modular system to train the trainers of youth workers by defining a set of essential competences that can be acquired in specific courses and serve to establish a pool of certified trainers in Europe. SALTO T&C RC keeps this subject on its agenda and develops projects in cooperation with NAs and other stakeholders.
