This is a seminar to explore deeper the concept of youth initiatives and how youth work can become more participative and co-owned if young people are empowered to implement their own ideas.

General Description

We have observed that not only in international projects, but also in local youth work more and more youth workers and young people tend to have consumeristic relationship (youth workers offer activities – young people consume them).

We are proposing this seminar in order to explore this dangerous tendency and find out approaches in order to give more responsibility of contents and “form” of youth work to the young people. Youth initiatives could be micro-projects at a local scale that do not require almost any resources – this we see as a good beginning for young people to start taking the responsibility and ownership.

Contents
– Discussing how consumerism affects youth work in our youth work realities and how to diminish consumeristic tendencies in youth work

– Exploring essence of youth initiatives, how to support them and sharing good practices

– Trying out to implement some local initiatives in Georgia and thus learn from this experience

– Work on youth initiative ideas for future projects in local communities and implement them.

This seminar has been designed for 25youth work specialists from municipalities, youth workers, teachers, social workers, youth leaders, youth leaders, youth club activists, scout leaders, etc., working with young people (as volunteers or paid workers) at least once a week, interested in youth work innovations and ready to share them with their communities through follow-up activities – Youth Initiatives and activities that contribute to young peoples’ greater involvement.

TC will give youth workers concrete methods for managing diversity and serve as a space for exploring various kinds of diversity. It aims to influence the daily practice of the participants by allowing them to learn from and be inspired by each other.

General Description

All youth workers have to deal with the fact that the young people they work with are different from each other in many ways – this means that they have to manage diversity. Some differences are more obvious than others – such as ethnicity, religion or language.

Diversity is more than the obvious differences, however – it also includes differences such as educational level, social and economic situation, sexuality, health and hidden or visible disabilities. Many youth workers put great emphasis on including a diversity of people, and this training will help participants to manage this diversity in their work. This is the 3rd edition of the TC.

During the training course, we will look at different concepts of inclusion and diversity. We will offer concrete tools, techniques and methods youth workers can use to manage diversity. We will facilitate discussions between the participants in order to learn from each other and find common ground in our experiences with working with diverse groups. Participants at the course will also learn how to pass on what they have learned at the training to the young people they work with.

Aim:

To support youth work professionals in developing diversity management competences in their daily practice and how to help young people appreciate diversity and cooperate valuing each others’ differences.

Objectives:

  • To explore concepts and different forms of diversity and inclusion;
  • To strengthen and develop youth workers and other professionals ‘diversity management’ competences;
  • To explore the local Italian reality of working with diverse groups of young people (Roma, asylum seekers, LGBTQI, etc)
  • To share different tools, methods and approaches for managing diversity and to reflect on how to adapt to different daily youth work contexts
  • To support networking between participants and the development of Erasmus+ Youth project ideas on diversity

Profile of participants:

  • Professionals working directly with diverse groups of young people on a regular basis. This includes youth workers, youth leaders, teachers, coaches, social workers, etc.
  • Participants interested in developing their ‘diversity management’ competences and learning how to deal with diversity of all kinds.
  • Ready to critically reflect on their own attitude towards diversity
  • Able to work in (international) English.
  • From Erasmus+ Youth Programme countries & Eastern Partnership (EaP) and Russia

Small organisations in rural areas can find human resources as a challenge in organising international youth projects. This study visit shows good practices in one region in Finland. The countryside can be international!

General Description

Do you want to meet other youth workers from countryside, villages, rural centres and small towns, where distances, human resources and size of the organisation can cause challenges for international youth projects?

We know that international youth work can be done in villages and small towns, regardless of the challenges. We also know the impact of these projects can be much larger in small places than large cities.

Practices from Eastern Finland

We will look at the cooperation of actors in a Finnish region South Carelia. During the study visit you will see how international activities were initiated in the region with the help of the largest town and how the small villages learned to adopt international activities as a permanent part of their work.

You will meet young people who have been part of international projects, see how projects have been carried out in small places and explore what kind of benefits of regional cooperation gives.

Objectives:

  • compare realities of rural areas in different parts of Europe
  • understand how international youth projects can be done in the rural areas
  • see examples of projects and working ways

  • find partners for future projects
  • explore the opportunities of EU’s youth programmes (Erasmus+, European Solidarity Corps) in rural settings
  • Participants from the countryside

Do you carry out regular youth work or youth activities in a rural setting? If you are working in a public or non-governmental organisation in a small rural town, in a village or in a coutryside centre, you can benefit from this study visit.

You should be over 18 and and your role in the organisation should be active – maybe you organise regular activities directly to the young people in your organisation or you want to develop your organisation towards international projects.

It does not matter, if you have never organised an international youth activity. This can be your step into the European projects. If you have experiences, you should be curious to explore new ways in working in projects.

If you are from a big city and or you represent a university student organisations we will not prioritise your application. If you are a volunteer in your organisation, your role should be relevant in the planning and implementation of the organisation’s activities.

Municipal youth work and NGOs

The study visit will visit the City of Lappeenranta, Municipality of Rautjärvi and Lemi 4H Organisation. We will be accommodated in Lappeenranta and visit the other villages in the region.

Participants from Europe and Eastern Partnership+ Russia

The call is open for all Erasmus+ Programme Countries, however, the following countries have signed up as partners and therefore we will prioritise applicants from Austria, Belgium (FR), Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, United Kingdom, Finland and Switzerland.

If you are from some other country, you can apply, but your country may not have reserved money for sending participants to this activity. If you want to know how the travel costs are covered or if your country is sending participants, you have to contact the national agency in your own country.

You are welcomed to join the study visit from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Azerbaijan or Armenia. If you will be selected, Finland will cover your travel and visa costs.
