Promoting new forms of learning mobility in youth work
We seek to promote new forms of learning mobility among youth and youth workers with the aim to fostering the acquisition of new skills and competences among youth workers and to helping them better adapt to the changing needs of young people, thus contributing to the increase of professionalism in youth work.
We also stimulate training for those working on international youth projects using non-formal learning. This includes workshops, training and seminars for those who are new to the international project proposal writing and organisation and implementation of project activities. It aims to:
- encourage the development of international youth projects
- support the personal and professional development of youth workers.
This tailored training, both close to home and elsewhere in Europe:
- helps you to build relationships with new partner organisations and link up with like-minded leaders across Europe;
- increases your awareness and confidence in topics such as risk awareness, cultural competence, youth participation and inclusion, employability, entrepreneurship, European Citizenship etc;
- provides you with a valuable opportunity to develop personally and professionally in your youth work;
- guides you through the project activities and application process – including some handy hints and tips.
