The Star of Europe training will take you through a youth exchange project from its very beginning to the very end, highlighting young people’s involvement. You will also learn how to use the digital Star of Europe material in building the exchange. Learn How to Make REAL Youth Exchanges!

General Description

Whatever you have heard about youth exchanges before or however you have organised them before, this training is teaching you how to make youth exchanges like they are meant to be! You will learn how to support young people to make their own projects, and not to make the projects for them.

Focus on involvement and partnership:

The original idea of a youth exchange is a long term learning process for the groups of young people in participating countries. Young people are involved in a process, where they come up with the idea for the project, choose the topic for it and design the activities for its programme. They run the activities themselves and plan dissemination activities that they organise for other young people.

The process is linked to learning – the more the young people are involved in the process, the more new learning situations they end up in. In The Star of Europe, we will look at all the steps of youth exchange project, to see how the young people can be involved in all aspects of the project, learning new things throughout it.

We will also look at how the young people in each participating countries can be part of the process – that is how the learning is equal in all youth groups, not only the hosting one.

Unlike how many youth exchanges are organised, we want to promote the original idea of youth exchanges – and let the youth exchanges to be young people’s own projects, not projects planned by adults to young people.

Digital material supporting your process:

The Star of Europe has also its own extensive digital material, which was based on the printed material that was created earlier. Now both of these materials exist side by side, but the digital material is always available and can be used together with partners and the young people in every group.

Each step includes Learning Badges that young people can earn while working on the different elements of project planning. The badges show you the progress in your process and help the young people to see their involvement. After the process the badges help you and your young people to see what learning experiences you will forward to the Youthpasses.

In the training the digital material is used so that the participants will learn how to use it when they go back home to work with their young people.

If you want to see what is available or start using the Star of Europe material, please go to starofeurope.eu

Aims and objectives:

The aim of “The Star of Europe” is to get a comprehensive understanding of what a youth exchange project contains – from the idea, needs assessment of a project to the follow up activities. More specifically, the main objectives are:

  • To become familiar with the whole logic of life cycle of a youth exchange project
  • To increase the understanding of the value of full involvement of young people in youth exchanges
  • To become aware of learning opportunities of the young people within youth exchanges
  • To pay extra attention to the equal partnership and encourage partners to plan, prepare, implement and report the project together
  • To get acquainted with a Star of Europe digital platform as a tool for support of youth exchanges

Training for newcomers and experienced:

If you work regularly with youth groups, professionally or voluntarily, you are a good participant in this training. As a youth worker, youth leader or group leader, you already have a group of interested young people or an idea, how to find an interested group to work with.

You can be a newcomer or someone who has already organised youth exchanges, but has not involved young people in the planning of the projects before.

You will have to be over 18 years old. We prioritise applicants who work directly with a group of young people and who are interested in forming partnerships for future projects.

Training Course One 2 One: Supporting learning face-to-face

Dates: 23-29 March 2020

Venue: Hattingen, Germany

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 31st January 2020

The main aim of this training course is to empower and equip youth workers with the competences needed to work in a One 2 One relationship with young people in order to support their learning and development processes.

General Description

Have you ever felt confused about your role with the young people you work with? Do they see you as a coach? Mentor? Tutor? Can you work with groups, but find it difficult to work with individuals? Have you never had a tetralemma? Yes?

Then this course is for you!

Context and background of this training course:

In several areas of the European youth programmes, youth workers and trainers are increasingly required to be able not only to work with groups of young people but, also, to accompany individuals through the various learning, professional and personal development processes on offer.

Although one-to-one dialogue may seem like an obvious and natural form of communication, for youth work practitioners it has also become a professional requirement. Therefore many youth workers feel they need training in order to appropriately support young people through their individual development and learning processes.

We are very happy to invite you to apply for the 5th edition of this successful course, which will be held in Hattingen, Germany.

What does “One 2 One” Stand for?

“One 2 One” is a little play on words. One 2 one means face to face i.e. the individual relationship, which we are focusing on during the training course.

The aims and objectives of this training course:

The main aim of this course is to empower and equip youth workers with the competences needed to work in a One 2 One relationship with young people in order to support their learning and development processes.

Within this, we seek:

  • To explore what “supporting learning” means in one-to-one relationships;
  • To practice different one-2-one learning support methods and approaches;
  • To develop the skill of initiating & supporting self-reflection about learning;
  • To reflect on how supporting learning individually and in groups complement and influence
  • each other;
  • To exchange about various types of contexts (from local youth work to international mobilities) and approaches such as mentoring, coaching and tutoring.

The course will be based on and supported by the following publications:

  • One 2 One – Supporting Learning Face to Face
  • The Competence Model for Youth workers to work internationally

Within the training course you will also learn more about how to implement the Youthpass process.

Target group and profile of participants:

Professionals and volunteers – youth workers and/or youth leaders, youth trainers, mentors, educators etc.:

  • who have minimum one year of experience in working with young people (be it in local youth work or international mobility context);
  • motivated to develop the competences needed to work in One 2 One relationships;
    minimum 18 years old;
  • able to actively participate in English.

The learning process and the programme of the training course:

In order to provide the possibility for participants to experience being supported individually in their own learning process, the training course is extended by One 2 One talks with the trainers both before and after the course. Each participant will be accompanied by the same trainer throughout.

  • Before the training course: Participant and trainer One 2 One talk by Skype
  • During the training course: Participant and trainer One 2 One talk
  • After the training course: Participant and trainer One 2 One talk by Skype

What you can expect:

The preliminary programme of the course is presented in the attached brochure and will be adjusted according to participants’ expressed needs and expectations during the One 2 One talks by Skype.

Training Course Recognise It: Develop strategies for recognition of youth work!

Dates: 30 March – 5 April 2020

Venue: Berlin, Germany

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Southern Mediterranean countries

Application deadline: 13th January 2020

A 5-day training course that will bring together the representatives of NGOs and local youth officers to develop strategies to foster recognition of youth work and non-formal learning at national and municipal level.

General Description

The training course aims to strengthen and support the recognition of youth work at local level in participants’ countries – led by the regional cooperation of NGOs within the South Med and Europe.

Recognise It! Develop strategies for recognition of youth work! aims to bring together representatives of organisations (NGOs) (who are active in youth work locally in an NGO) and local youth officers (who are working with or for young people at municipal level).

They will come together from Programme countries and South Mediterranean countries in order to develop strategies to support the recognition of youth work and non-formal learning at municipal level. In this sense, youth work refers to engagement and activities, which are implemented by NGOs/groups of active people focusing on young people and on how to make the situation of young people in their context – mainly at local level – better.

This will be third training course of the Recognise it! Series, building on the experience gained and will focus on:

  • sharing good practices, realities and experiences from municipal/local level,
  • exploring concepts and research related to recognition,
  • analysing individual situations,
  • developing concrete action plans for the future, and
  • implementing the Youthpass process.

This training course is part of a long-term strategic project that started in 2016 initiated by SALTO -Youth EuroMed, SALTO-Youth Training and Cooperation Resource Centres and the Italian and German National Agencies for Erasmus+ Youth in Action and Movetia.

With this training course, further contributions will be made to processes already ongoing in participant’s countries – taking into account the different socio-political realities within the participant group.

The organisers aim to co-create a space for debates about concepts, topics and issues related to recognition, including sharing the results of research carried out during the project. The publication Unlocking Doors to Recognition (currently being revised), that focuses on recognition developments at local level, has been one of the starting points for the long-term cooperation and will be addressed during the training course.

Background of the Recognise It! Develop strategies for recognition of youth work! – training course:

In the context of the Recognise it! project a first seminar took place in Jordan in 2016, which focused on gaining knowledge about the situation based on participants’ experience and views. It was completed by a mapping exercise based on interviews and a literature desk review whose core topic was the recognition of youth work and non-formal learning in South Med countries. These first two steps were very important in order to plan the next strategic steps for the Recognise it! activities planned for 2017/2019.

The overall aim was to support the development of strategies of recognition of youth work at national and municipal level and to strengthen the role of youth work in both dimensions taking into consideration the different socio-political conditions in each country. The main perspective was the one of NGOs and their actors.

The long-term cooperation project involved two training courses (realised in Jordan and in Germany), plus a research and a consolidation seminar (realised in Italy in 2019).

Trainers´ team:

The trainers are Federica Demicheli, Iyad Aljaber and Mark Taylor.

General Description

Learn How to Make REAL Youth Exchanges!

Whatever you have heard about youth exchanges before or however you have organised them before, this training is teaching you how to make youth exchanges like they are meant to be! You will learn how to support young people to make their own projects, and not to make the projects for them.

Focus on involvement and partnership

The original idea of a youth exchange is a long term learning process for the groups of young people in participating countries. Young people are involved in a process, where they come up with the idea for the project, choose the topic for it and design the activities for its programme. They run the activities themselves and plan dissemination activities that they organise for other young people.

The process is linked to learning – the more the young people are involved in the process, the more new learning situations they end up in. In The Star of Europe, we will look at all the steps of youth exchange project, to see how the young people can be involved in all aspects of the project learning new things throughout it.

We will also look at how the young people in each participating countries can be part of the process – that is how the learning is equal in all youth groups, not only the hosting one.

Unlike how many youth exchanges are organised, we want to promote the original idea of youth exchanges – and let the youth exchanges to be young people’s own projects, not projects planned by adults to young people.

Aims and objectives

The aim of “The Star of Europe” is to get a comprehensive understanding of what a youth exchange project contains – from the idea, needs assessment of a project to the follow up activities. More specifically, the main objectives are:

1) to understand the the whole logic of lifecycle of a youth exchange project;

2) to focus on participation and learning opportunities of the young people;

3) to pay extra attention to the equal partnership and encourage partners to plan, prepare, implement and report the project together.

Training for newcomers and experienced

If you work regularly with youth groups, professionally or voluntarily, you are a good participant in this training. As a youth worker, youth leader or group leader, you already have a group of interested young people or an idea, how to find an interested group to work with.

You can be a newcomer or someone who has already organised youth exchanges, but has not involved young people in the planning of the projects before.

You will have to be over 18 years old. We prioritise applicants who work directly with a group of young people and who are interested in forming partnerships for future projects.

Digital material for your help

The Star of Europe training course will introduce you to digital support material that will help you and your young people in your planning process. Each step of the youth exchange project has made into a playlist of videos, exercises, tips and hints on how to plan a youth exchange well.

Each step includes Learning Badges that young people can earn while working on the different elements of project planning. The badges show you the progress in your process and help the young people to see their involvement.
