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

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

    • 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
