EUthwork: Youth Work mapping in Europe

As part of EUthwork Erasmus Plus project we have led a youth work mapping of the youth work conditions and practices in the participating countries: Estonia, France, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.

The youth field is regulated at national level which leads to major differences between the youth work practices in the youth field. In this regard, Erasmus Plus programme remains the main support system for European youth work offering equal opportunities of involvement for organizations across the European Union and in some cases it complements the national support systems, while in some other cases it represents one of the main support mechanisms available.

EUthWork mapping of youth work in Europe serves as a tools for comparative analysis among the 10 participating countries representing all the regions of the European Union and it reflects the following criteria:
  • Youth law 
  • Age of young people 
  • Is youth work a profession? 
  • How do you become a youth worker? 
  • Funding available in the youth field 
  • Stereotypes about young people
  • The most needed youth work tools?
