Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Training Course called “Experience(d) Youth Work’’ which will take place from 19th March until 25th March 2023 in Molfetta, Italy.
The Youth Worker Exchange will consist of a 5-day international training for youth workers, who work directly with young people from inclusion groups in the deprived rural environments (NEETs). The main activities will include the combination of trekking and journaling. The training will be based on experiential learning – innovative training practice of learning in movement and nature with other international youth workers while trying out different tools (nature and art therapy, different journaling techniques, non-formal group activities) and documenting the learning process.
The general aim of this training is to offer participants an opportunity to exchange their experiences in working with vulnerable young people from rural areas, learn new methodologies of youth work, as well as to empower the participants to use experiential learning methods and journaling in their work with the target groups.
Other objectives include:
- reflecting on the challenges and opportunities while working with young people with fewer opportunities;
- sharing the practice and competences on how those challenges and opportunities may be addressed;
- connecting physical and mental learning process;
- learning to document non-formal learning;
- reflecting and assessing youth work practices and competences using European recognition tools;
- collecting and disseminating innovative youth work methods which can be applied with inclusion youth groups.
This event will bring together 16 participants from Estonia, Armenia, Greece, Italy, North Macedonia, Poland and Turkey. The event will be held in English. There are 2 vacancies available, and participants should be from older than 18 years old.
The Erasmus + Programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants – up to 360 euros. There will be a participation fee of 40 Eur. per participant.
Application deadline: 10th January 2023
