The project “Youthworker 2.0” aimed at supporting youth leaders, workcamp leaders and trainers to improve their work with youth, assuring and developing quality of their activities. Three Training Courses focused on raising competences of these target groups and support sharing of experience. Each Training course was designed for 24 participants from 6 European organisations (INEX-SDA – Czech Republic, ELIX – Greece, Egyesek – Hungary, Legambiente – Italy, XCHANGE – Scotland, Young Researchers of Serbia – Serbia).

This project was supported by Erasmus + programme.

Summarised final reports are at disposal in English or Czech

Overall objectives:

  • The youth workers will improve their ability to independently and reliably work with groups of participants/youth, while reflecting their special needs
    • First Training Course will be focused on working with complicated situations in a group
    • Second one will focus on the topic of inclusion of participants with special needs or fewer opportunities
    • Third Training will support participants in development of tools and methodologies in order to promote anti-discrimination approaches.
  • They reflect, what makes their activities of a high-quality and will understand what does the “quality” actually mean
  • They will be able to apply methods and tools to keep motivation and energy
  • They will have space to enhance their international cooperation, create new partnerships and project ideas
