With this training course we seek to improve the level of key competences and skills of youth workers, such as sense of initiative and entrepreneurship and multilingualism, in order to improve the quality of their work and the activities they organise, and to reach further into the European dimension of their youth work.

Taking under consideration the needs of the organizations involved the content of this training course will be based on the following objectives:

At the end of the training course, our participants will be motivated to participate more actively in the lives of their organisations, develop more projects with and for young people and will be better equipped to provide a higher quality of youth work delivery due to their experience, skills and knowledge.

During the activities of the training course we will use different kinds of non-formal and informal educational methods, such as small and large group work, individual time for reflection, simulation and situation activities, role plays, energizers, case studies, interactive presentations etc. We can offer a wide range of methods to the participants including indoor and outdoor training elements.

General Description

This cross-sectoral conference, addressing both issues and opportunities surrounding youth employability and entrepreneurship, is the flagship event of the Youth@Work Partnership in 2019.

The emphasis of the conference will be on the cooperation between formal and non-formal (youth work) education providers, employment, social & business sectors, (social) entrepreneurs, and other stakeholders. It will showcase achievements, recommendations, good practices as well as future plans inspired by the outcomes of the conference to be taken up by the Youth@Work Partnership.

In 2018, a consortium of 11 Erasmus Plus Youth National Agencies (NAs) and 4 SALTO-YOUTH Resource Centres decided to take a new approach to support employability and entrepreneurship amongst young people and professionals.

They, therefore, launched the Youth@Work Strategic Partnership on Youth Employability and Entrepreneurship, with the aim to better address these areas by working collaboratively, based on a common strategy.

Youth@Work is an alliance of the NAs of Turkey (the leading NA), Cyprus, Republic of North Macedonia, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Poland, Spain, and the UK, with the support of the SALTO-YOUTH Eastern Europe and Caucasus (Poland), Euromed and Good Practices (France), South East Europe (Slovenia) and Training and Cooperation (Germany) Resource Centres. It runs from January 2018 to December 2020, when the Erasmus+ Programme ends.

This Kick off Conference will enable the Youth@Work Partnership to showcase its achievements so far, to create a platform for networking, reflection, exchanges of practices and knowledge, and to explore ways forward in addressing the topics of youth employability and entrepreneurship.

General Aim

To initiate exchanges of ideas and cooperation between actors from different sectors in order to create better opportunities for youth integration into the labour market and to make the market more accessible.

Objectives

1.To inform participants about Youth@Work and its role within youth employability and entrepreneurship.
2.To connect formal and non-formal education professionals to policymakers and actors within the business sector in order to discuss opportunities to shape the future.
3.To identify and consider ways to bridge the gaps between employers and the young workforce through cross-sectoral collaboration.
4.To capture & anticipate the employability & entrepreneurship trends.
5.To sketch a roadmap for implementation of the conference outcomes.
6.To communicate the achievements, action plans and recommendations of the Youth@Work Partnership.

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..

Partnership building Activity. Inclusive Volunteering in Social Economy. Turkey

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.
