The main objective of the project “Youth information – key to success” is to enable youth workers to meet, gain new knowledge and new skills necessary in order to raise the quality of their work, to share best practices in this area, to write standards for working of the youth workers with youth information and to create an information network with the participating organizations. The training will be held from 6 to 12 October 2016 in Rousse and will be led by experienced trainers who will use interactive methods, typical for the non-formal education field.
As a result of their participation in this training, youth workers will create a basic concept and action plan for working with youth information in their organizations, which will be based on generally accepted methods which are imposed at European and international level. The discussion platform which will be created during the project will become a source of youth information not only between the participating partners but also among other European and international organizations.
Another aspect of the project is to meet the cultures of countries. With intercultural nights, presentation of our cultures and traditions and spending informal time together, we are strengthening unique European identity.
Some of the topics in the programme are:
- Background and Principles of Youth Information
- Youth Information in Practice
- The Art of Working with Young People in a Youth Information Setting
- Continuous Professional Development in Youth Information Work.
The project will take place in Bulgaria between 6-12 October 2016. Renaissance Institute will send 3 youth workers and youth leaders to this project. Accomodation & food expences will be covered and travel expences will be reimbursed during the activity up to 275 €.
