About the project:
Within the broad spectrum of lifelong learning, youth work has played a vital part. Its benefits to young people and closeness to their concerns means that it is a profession often with insufficient public profile. Youth workers have played a central role in assisting the development of participative and democratic models for young people. Their work seeks to promote young people’s personal and social development and enable them to have a voice, influence and place in their communities and society as a whole. In today’s Europe, youth work is guided and governed by the principles of participation and empowerment, by the values of human rights and democracy and by anti-discrimination and tolerance. It is framed by a range of policies and research knowledge. Youth work is delivered both by volunteers as well as paid workers. Youth work’ is defined in the Council Resolution on a renewed framework for European co-operation in the youth field (2010-2018) as: a broad term covering a large scope of activities of a social, cultural, educational or political nature both by, with and for young people. Exchange between youth workers and young people from different cultures, backgrounds and youth work experiences is important for quality development, for learning and support, for knowledge transfer and for extending opportunities to develop and implement youth work at local and international level. The overall aim of the project is to provide space for youth workers, both professional and voluntary base, from EuropeanUnion countries, to share their realities, challenges and good practices as youth workers.
