Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Training Course called The Role of Youth Work in Extreme Societies” which will take place from 08th until 14th October 2018 in Dilijan, Armenia.




European society is seeing an increase in extremism on many different levels. Large numbers of young people is being recruited into extremist religious, ideological and political movements, the rise in popularity of mainstream extreme politics, and the rise in the level of acceptability of extreme views being expressed – particularly online. This whole trend of extremism, whether to right or left or religion, creates micro levels of extremism that can be seen in how people respond to one another in news media comments sections, in the rise of abuse and bullying of individuals and groups.


This training course will explore all these elements because youth work has an important role to play in supporting young people and the communities in which they live in combating extremism in all its forms.


In this 7-day international training course you will explore the role of youth workers and youth work in combating all forms of extremism among young people and the communities in which they live. You will:

■ deepen your understanding about participation and active citizenship among young people as part of the democratic life in Europe;

■ learn about intercultural learning and intercultural dialogue and the role of interculturality in societies today;

■ explore concepts of social inclusion and social exclusion and how and why young people are so strongly affected and disaffected;

■ link youth organisations together to share and explore different ways of combating extremism and
