The project aim is defined as: “To foster quality and multidimensional improvements in youth work, in order to reach and empower marginalized young people, thus supporting their transition from youth to adulthood, their integration into the labor market and the chances for social inclusion and education.”

The three main concepts used in this project are:

This training offers an international learning experience for youth work practitioners who want to develop competencies in setting up quality Youth Exchange projects for young people with fewer opportunities.

General Description

Do you work with young people? Are you aware of a number of funding opportunities offered within the Erasmus+ Youth Programme? Then this Training course is for you!

This training offers an international learning experience for youth work practitioners who want to learn about the opportunities of Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

It will develop competencies in setting up quality Youth Exchange projects for young people with fewer opportunities.

Jump In will provide a strong positive first experience of international youth work and motivate participants to use the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Context of the TC

The Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme offers a wide range of international learning opportunities for young people: learning mobility of individuals is considered to bring long lasting benefits to the participants and the organizations involved and should ideally be accessible to everyone.

Nevertheless it is often the case that young people and youth organizations do not know about these opportunities. The Erasmus+ Youth Programme is a Programme for all, and efforts should be made to include young people with fewer opportunities.

Jump In will increase the impact of youth work by promoting Erasmus+ Youth Exchanges as a tool and to disseminate non formal education. Its principles and methods are to empower young people with fewer opportunities as real actors of the society.

Together with participants we want to take a look to their local realities and think about youth exchanges that can have a larger impact and be more accessible to everyone, in order to create a solid bridge between the Erasmus+ Youth Programme and young people with fewer opportunities.

The objectives of this project are:

  • To provide basic information about the Erasmus+ Youth Programme for newcomers focusing on Youth exchange activities and their potential to enhance new possibilities for young people with fewer opportunities.
  • To allow participants to learn and practice methods to work with young people in various youth exchange situations.
  • To reflect on the power of words and how to communicate meaningfully with young people.
  • To learn how to organize creative activities with little resources, helping participants map out all the resources in their community that can be used during Youth Exchange projects.
  • To share experiences and good practices at local/ regional level and adapting it to an international context.

Methodology

The training will be a learning-by-doing experience. The methodology will focus on non-formal education. We will create a space where the participants and trainers can learn from each other: workshops, info sessions, activities to improve the group dynamics, individual and group reflection, open space, design thinking.

The trainers’ team will create a learning space, where participants will create the main input/ content from their local and regional perspective to build youth exchange projects.

We invite all those working directly with young people to join this training and learn more about Erasmus+ Youth Programme, more specifically Youth Exchanges. This training course is for newcomers into this program to develop their competencies in setting up quality Youth Exchange projects for young people with fewer opportunities.

We also invite people who are curious and motivated about setting up impactful Youth Exchanges to join.

Participants Profile:

  • Professional or volunteer youth workers.
  • Preferable linked to a youth organization.
  • Motivated to learn about and make use of the Erasmus+ Youth Programme with young people with fewer opportunities.

Do you want to make a positive change in your community? Do you want to develop your skills on social inclusion? Do you work with young people and want to see a change in them, too? Then this training course is for you!

General Description

Social inclusion is a process of improving the terms on which individuals and groups take part in society—improving the ability, opportunity, and dignity of those disadvantaged on the basis of their identity or circumstances.

Examples of social inclusion in practice are:

  • promoting equality of access to opportunities and resources;
  • raising awareness about anti-discriminatory practices;
  • working towards social cohesion and equality across the board (gender, religion, ethnicity, status, income, etc.).

Social inclusion is seen as part of human development and progress, in view of the social effects of globalization, especially the negative ones such as the rise of extremism, racism and discrimination, and radicalization.

Leadership concerns each one of us, as we are all leaders of our own lives in various contexts, both on the personal and on the professional levels.

The training course aims to support the personal and professional development of people working with a community in a non-profit sector and provide them with tools, knowledge and experience for effective, inclusive leadership. Social inclusion is introduced as a ‘lens’ in projects that participants design and lead in their communities (or elsewhere).

Aim

The aim of the course is to introduce social inclusion as a necessary aspect of community development and to empower youth workers to become effective leaders in their communities, and also to increase their understanding and application of anti-discriminatory and inclusive practices.

How Will we Work

In this training course, you will discover and work on your skills and how you can use them to work in your community. The program is based on:

Experiencing: improvisation and outdoor activities as tools for community leadership. We will explore applied improvisation and outdoors as tools for willingness to take responsibility, taking a risk, sense of initiative, discovering one’s own limits, working with mistakes and other essential skills for effective communication.
Reflecting: on the own/European reality, on the methods used, on the personal learning process.
Transferring: to the own reality of participants and exploring the possibilities in the Erasmus+ Program to work towards social inclusion.

Objectives

  • To raise awareness about what social inclusion is.
  • To raise awareness about positive changes we can make on a personal level so that we can be more inclusive on the collective level.
  • To raise awareness and support better understanding of different realities we all live in.
  • To support youth workers in becoming leaders in their communities while being inclusive – where the inclusion is seen as a progress in the view of radicalization as a negative consequence of a globalized world.
  • To provide practical tools to be used by participants in their communities when working with social inclusion and community leadership.
  • To discover the possibilities of the Erasmus+ programme to build projects and to work towards social inclusion.

Participants’ Profile

  • Youth workers, youth leaders, social workers, or volunteers actively taking part in their local community through projects or social actions which involve young people.
  • Young people who want to become active agents in their communities by leading projects or social actions.
  • Community organisations’ leaders/employees who want to enhance their skills in leading their projects.
    Participants are able to use English as working language.

Conference YOUTH2019: Finnish National Youth Work Days

Dates: 26-29 March 2019

Venue: Turku, Finland

Application deadline: 14th February 2019

YOUTH2019 is two-day programmed conference which consists of a variety of current topics in youth work. The strand in English talks about Finnish and European Youth Work topics.

General Description

The Finnish youth field comes together every year for Youth Work Days. YOUTH2019 gathers about 1000 youth work professionals (youth workers, researchers and policy-makers) to discuss, evaluate, innovate and develop their work among young people.

YOUTH2019 is two-day programmed conference which consists of a wide variety of current topics in youth work. Part of the activity is a fair with Finnish youth work organisations presenting their work and are available for discussions about their practices with different target groups and topics.

Alongside the fair, dozens of sessions about youth work are run in parallel workshops. In cooperation with the National Youth Council Allianssi, the Finnish NA has prepared a programme that is available in English for international guests.

Finnish and European topics
The programme in English is not exclusively for international participants. Rather, it is aimed for the Finnish youth workers too. Hopefully, the sessions can open up good discussions about youth work in Europe between representatives of different countries.

Programme elements have not yet been finalised but some topics have already been decided:

  • Visits to youth work organisations in Turku and Helsinki
  • Introduction to Finnish Youth Work
  • European Youth Strategy 2019-2027 with COM
  • Presentations of organisations and projects
  • Discussions of European challenges affecting youth
  • Cross-sectoral co-operation in youth work
  • Competence Model for Youth Workers to Work Internationally
  • Inclusive youth work
  • Current topics in Youth Research Finland/Croatia
  • Opportunities in the European Solidarity Corps Programme

The cultural programme during conference evenings allow more relaxed interaction with the Finnish youth workers.

Opening and Closing ceremonies are interpreted into English.

A Medieval Town and Modern Youth Work
Turku, the former capital of Finland (in the Swedish times) is the second largest city in Finland. It is situated on the South-West coast of Finland. The travel time on bus or train from Helsinki is roughly two hours.

As a large city Turku organises very diverse youth work and for the visits we try to organise visits to the most interesting and innovative practices.

We organise visits to youth work organisations in Turku the day before YOUTH2019 and if needed also on the day after in Helsinki.

An international Group
We have previously agreed with a group of countries that they will send participants to this activity and take care of their participation fees. The following countries are agreed to send participants to YOUTH2019:

Austria
Belgium Flanders
Denmark
Germany
Italy
Liechtenstein
Poland
Switzerland

Other countries can open the call too, but the priority is given for the countries listed in here. The countries outside the list will have to agree to pay 110€ per participant as the participation fee (National Youth Council collects the fee from everybody). We have maximum 35 places available.

Training Course: Fear(less) II

Dates: 7-13 July 2019

Venue: Kegums, Latvia

Eligible are 15-25 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: 15th March 2019

What do you do when confronted by fear? Do you expose yourself to it or do you avoid it? As a youth worker, do you ever notice how you project your own fears to the young people you are working with, thus taking the learning away from them?​

General Description

Fear(less) II is a training course on discovering how overcoming our limits can bring powerful learning outcomes. Our goal is to empower youth workers to become better leaders of their communities by mastering self-confidence, and to educate them on non-formal education programs and methods based on overcoming fears, and using them as tools in their own work.

​​Our main methods used include high-rope activities, living in tribes, guided awareness practices, body movement and dance performances, physical and mental challenges, public speaking and spending time alone with no outside distractions – all of them (and much more!) put together to create a rich, diverse arena for personal discoveries and releasing what no longer serves you.

If you are a youth worker, you are a light bearer for others. Through your example, people find and act on their truth.

By joining this training course, you will get the opportunity to:

  • improve your self-confidence by confronting the fears that hold you back from living up to your fullest potential through specifically designed activities,
  • live through and learn about the usage of experiential methods for overcoming fears,
  • learn to use the available resources and environment in an efficient way when preparing and delivering activities for others,
  • discover how fears and vulnerability bring people in a team closer together, and how to use this as a valuable tool in your own work,
  • explore the theory of where our fears come from and various mechanisms for controlling them,
  • share your own experience and learn from other professionals of their field who work with people in different contexts,
  • gain self-awareness and connect to yourself on deeper level.

​Courage doesn’t mean that you aren’t afraid. Fearless means just that – Fear less. Acknowledge that you are frightened, and take action anyway! Face your anxiety and go beyond the boundaries of your limited perceptions of yourself.​

There are times in life to step back and even times to walk away, but there are also times to stand up for yourself and those less advantaged. Don’t let yourself be limited by your belief system. Be willing to live from your heart rather than your mind. Honor your truth. Explore your fears and fear less.
