AIMS AND LEARNING METHODS
The aim is to equip youth workers with the necessary tools, techniques, educational activities, working principles and confidence so they can also support youngsters on a daily basis and on a community level (especially when it comes to ESC programs and reinventing certain activities) and for their future projects.
Main tools and topics during the Professional Development Activity: coaching, critical conversation techniques, needs analysis (on an individual level and organizational level), reinventing/rethinking gathering (events, professional development activities, exchanges, ESC programs) according to the new normal and new norms.
The results of the Professional Development Activity will be translated into a Methodology guideline that is tailor-made for working with youngsters with fewer opportunities, both one-to-one and in groups. The guideline will contain the following elements: how to create a connection with the target group, how to create step-by-step opportunities for these individuals within the organization, and how to guide them through the whole learning path.
