Attitudes are one of the most challenging parts to approach in our professional development; not so tangible and easy to measure, yet crucial in our work with young people. They manifest in our behaviours, influence our work, relations and social context.

General Description

We are glad to invite you to participate in YOCOMO – the training course, which works with the ETS YOuth worker COmpetence MOdel in order to enable youth workers to reflect on and develop their competences with a focus on their attitudes and behaviours.

Intentions

YOCOMO intends principally to offer you as youth workers a space to reflect and exchange on your practice and understanding with regard to developing attitudes. What does it imply? What does that mean in the context of competences? How do attitudes relate to behaviours? What triggers the change of attitude? How can they be further developed? How do I know that my attitude has changed?

The main purpose is to offer you an opportunity to be curious about your core attitudes as a youth worker and become aware of what shapes you now and where you would like to develop further, in your professional practice.

The course seeks

  • to raise awareness about attitudes and their influence on daily practices
  • to understand how attitudes relate to competences and behaviours
  • to develop an understanding of how attitudes can be changed or further developed
  • to explore the importance of reflection and self-reflective practice
  • to look into the role of “ETS Competence Model For Youth Workers Working Internationally” in your professional development

So, if…

  • you are a youth worker and you already have experience with international mobility and want to develop your competences further;
  • you are eager to reflect on your attitudes in your work with young people and want to have a deeper look at your competences;
  • you are interested to experience working with the ETS competence model for youth workers and in developing within;

  • you are particularly curious and motivated to explore how attitudes and behaviours can impact your work with young people;
  • you are looking for a great opportunity to meet other colleagues and share, exchange, support and evolve;
  • you have a fairly good knowledge of English;
  • you have a structure that supports you (NGO, school, municipality, youth centre, etc.)
    YOCOMO might be for you!

This Course is not the first and only!

The YOCOMO courses are developed as a support for youth workers in their competence development. There are more YOCOMOs than this one implemented around Europe and they focus on different dimensions and levels of complexity of the competence model.

This particular YOCOMO on attitudes and behaviours is a tested training. The first pilot edition was held in 2019 and it has proved to be a beneficial course for youth workers. Have a look to our SALTO YouTube channel to listen to a few participants from the pilot edition, share bits of their experience in of this course.

Design of this Training

YOCOMO is based on a long-term format and blended learning, meaning that they include:

  • One residential course of 5 days (arrivals on the 4th of May, working days on 5-9, departures on the 10th of May);
  • Pre online course starting from the beginning of April (to start exploration and orientation, define learning needs, engage with others) – approximately 8 – 10 hours in total;
  • Post online course in between the residential and the consolidation (to experiment, harvest and further learn) – approximately 8 – 10 hours in total;
  • Final consolidation meeting on 28-30 September 2020. At the time of this call, this is to be confirmed but should it be, you should commit to participate in that meeting as well.
  • The general approach is based on the principles of non-formal learning and the course strongly supports reflection and self-directed learning.

YOCOMO team of Trainers

The team is composed of Monika Kezaite, Salvi Greco and Snežana Bačlija Knoch. Following the selection process, the training team will contact the selected participants with specific information and tasks regarding the further development of the programme, which include online learning as well.

A training course for young people who took part in European Solidarity Corps/Erasmus+ Youth Programme projects and want to share their European experiences with their peers.

General Description

You did a volunteering activity or took part in another European solidarity Corps activity, participated in a youth exchange or organised a youth initiative? Probably you gained lots of experiences and got to know Europe from an exciting perspective. Are you interested in staying involved and sharing your experiences with others?

If you can imagine telling other young people about your European experiences and encouraging them to try suchlike, we invite you warmly to become a EuroPeer! EuroPeers are young people who have already taken part in an European Solidarity Corps/Erasmus+ Youth Programme project. They share their experiences and inform other young people (their peers) about these opportunities and other ways to go abroad. This can be done in different ways and in the framework of various events.

During this international training course you will learn how to organise different types of EuroPeer events and how to share your European experience effectively with your peers.

You will attend workshops on:

  • opportunities for young people to participate in Europe
  • Mobility programmes in Europe
  • Project management and PR activities
  • Communicating the European idea.

You will also have time to develop your first own EuroPeer activity. At the end of the training you’ll get the chance to implement your activity (together with other participants) on the ENCORE event, a networking event for Belgian organizations working with international volunteers. You’ll have the opportunity to talk about a variety of topics related to European volunteering experiences and you’ll help the next generation of volunteers to have a better experience, thanks to your feedback!

During the training there will also be a Social Media team consisting of 4 people, they will be responsible for the whole social dimension of the training to the online world. If you’d like to gain media experiences, you can apply for this team.

It will give you a slightly different experience of the whole training. This team will be guided by a very enthusiastic youth leader.

Information about both the EuroPeer project and previous events organised by EuroPeers over the last years can be found here. Or check the Europeers International Facebook page online.

“ToDAY: Developing digitAl Youth work” project aims to promote quality youth work through supporting open and innovative practices and by helping youth workers understand digital youth work and develop their capacity on digital youth work.

General Description

Social media sites, online games, video-sharing sites and gadgets such as iPods, iPads and mobile phones are now part of the culture of young people. They have permeated young lives in such a degree, that it is hard to believe that these technologies hardly existed less than a decade ago.

Today, young people may come of age and struggle for autonomy and identity, as their predecessors did. However, they do so in the midst of new worlds of communication, friendship and self-expression and it is based on the use of digital media. Digital Media and Technology has transformed how we teach and learn. The learning and self-development process do not always begin with teachers, they are also initiated by the learner, or supported by a youth worker. Digital media and technology it can’t be anything but part of youth workers’ training and capacity.

Young people in Europe spend an increasing amount of their time consuming digital media and (video streaming, messaging, networking, blogging, gaming, etc.). Some of the problems that young people are facing today are directly connected to digital media and especially social media, such as pressures of 24/7 social networking, hate speech online, cyber-bullying, internet and online games addiction.

Unfortunately in almost all European countries, there are cases that young people were even led to suicide because of cyber-bullying or hate speech online or various, serious internet addictions. All young people today need technological skills, social media literacy and an agile attitude towards technology in their future work and daily life, and this should be encouraged by youth workers.

“ToDAY: Developing digitAl Youth work” project aims to promote quality youth work through supporting open and innovative practices and by helping youth workers understand digital youth work and develop their capacity on digital youth work. It will support digital youth work in a local, national, regional and European level.

The main activity of this project is the Training Course, which will take place in Larissa, Greece. 30 participants from 14 countries (Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Denmark, Georgia, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Romania, UK, Slovakia, Spain, and The Netherlands) will participate at the TC. The working team of the TC consists of 2 experienced trainers and 1 facilitator.

The project’s objectives are:

  • To familiarise with and better understand digital youth work approaches and to be prepared to introduce digital approaches to their youth work practice. Youth workers will be able to support young people to develop the skills, competences and courage to actively shape digital technologies
  • To identify innovative practices in both delivering digital youth work and upskilling youth workers’ digital competences and to exchange good examples of how digital tools are used in youth work in Europe
  • To develop youth workers’ skills, competences and knowledge on digitalization through training that meets their needs and the needs of their communities and young people they work with
  • To create a network of youth workers from several European countries and support participating organisations to provide youth workers with tools, methods and practices for understanding digital youth work
  • To practice and be able to use in their daily work with young people the Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange project of the EU
  • To create space for making new contacts, creating new networks and exploring Erasmus+ Youth opportunities to develop digital youth work in future

Training Course: The Sound of Music V

Dates: 1-8 December 2019

Venue: Budapest, Hungary

Eligible are 24 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: 6th October 2019

European Training Course for youth workers to explore the power of music non-formal education activities with young people, with different aims (to relax, to activate, to cooperate, to reflect, to promote learning, etc).

General Description

While doing activities with young people, it is very common to use music in a bigger or smaller scale and in a more conscious or unconscious way. The music can influence the atmosphere that is created in a group, it can transmit emotions and/or words, it can be a fundamental part of one activity or even affect in a negative way when we are not using the right music for the situation.

The conscious use of music, the awareness of its impact on emotions, the right choice for the different moments, the options about public use (copyright, creative commons licenses), the digital tools to work with music, etc… are different aspects not always known and successfully used by trainers, youth leaders and/or workers in the field of youth.

Therefore, the purpose of this training is to develop the participants’ competences in the use of music as a powerful tool in non-formal education activities with young people.

Objectives

The objectives are as follows:

1. Provide participants with a theoretical framework of music and its influence on our body and our emotions.
2. Raise awareness of the influence and the impact that music can have (both positive and negative) in the participants’ mood, during the development of non-formal educational activities (NFE).
3. Develop the participants’ skills of in the creation of thematic musical sets ordered by purpose (e.g.: music for teamwork, for reflection, for energizing, for exploring own emotions, create trustful inspiring moments and settings, etc…)
4. Develop participants’ ability to create atmospheres using music (e.g.: the selection of the adequate music, distribution of the space in the room, temperature,) that boost the learning experience of young people in NFE activities
5. Provide the participants with digital tools related to music (to create playlists, edit, search, playback, music without royalty, where to buy music, etc.)
6. Support participants in the creation of live music as a resource for trainings as well as to elaborate their own soundtracks for their workshops, youth exchanges or trainings, learning how to “musicalize” their activities.
7. Provide a space to participants for exchanging experiences and resources among them about the use of music.
8. Discover the value of Erasmus+ Youth Programme, as a program for developing youth activities.

Methodology

  • The course will be inspired in the principles of Non-Formal Education – NFE (e.g.: participant-centred approach, flexibility of the training program, group as a mutual learning resource, trainers as facilitators of the learning process, holistic approach, etc) and experiential learning.
  • The course will combine a wide range of methods coming from the NFE sector together with other techniques coming from the music therapy and the art therapy fields. At this respect, it is important to remark that some sessions with music in the course may have a certain influence on the participants’ emotions. Please be aware of that.
  • The course will be eminently practical but brief inputs will set the framework in different moments across the learning process.
  • There will be flexibility to adapt to the needs of the group and their motivations, within reasonable limits.
  • The music will not be treated only as theoretical contents to discuss about, but it will be used systematically during the course. Case studies will be conducted to show what may be the most interesting themes according to the purpose and/or situation.

NOTE: Please, be aware that this training will not go deep into managing different DJ tools and software for mixing music but more how to use the music with different aims with young people. It is neither a course about how to create live music nor a course for professional musicians, still, live music will be one of the topics to explore.

Profile of Participants:

  • Youth workers, Trainers, Mentors, Youth Leaders working with young people on a regular basis
  • Above 18 years old
  • Able to communicate in English (basic English knowledge)
  • Previous international experience is not a must
  • NOT professional musicians! Please, be aware that this training will be about how to use the music with different aims with young people. It is not a course for professional musicians.
