During the training we want to discuss and find out, how participative youth work looks like in the different European countries and regional contexts. How can we strengthen or introduce participative youth work in our regions? What could we improve and how?
Since 2017 KINDERVEREINIGUNG Leipzig e.V. coordinates the project wir weit weg in which pupils that do not strive for higher education, develop international youth exchanges supported by so called “coaches international” (young adults, mainly university students). The results and experiences were mostly positive. During these years we have been confronted with various questions and expectations from schools, social workers in the schools, apprenticing companies, partners and funding organisations that result from the participatory approaches in the field of youth work and non-formal education.
Together with eight partner organisations from different European countries who are active in the field of youth work, we want to discuss these questions and expectations as well as exchange experiences, methods and examples of good-practice within participatory youth work. Additionally we aim to strengthen the contacts with our partner organisations and develop future cooperation and projects during the training.
Interested applicants are to fill the participation form here by the 4th October 2019.
