Professionalization of Youth Workers.
Integration of Migrants through Multi-Medial & Art-based Learning.
Supported by the „Erasmus+“ Programme.

It is said, that Europe is undergoing the so called „migration crisis”; more and more people come to EU countries searching for a better future. Now that we can observe tensions resulting from the flow of people coming to EU countries, it is crucial for youth work, as the Agenda 2020 states, to enable people living together in diverse societies, including „preventing discrimination on any ground”.

The core idea that underpins the project proposal is to create a supportive environment for youth workers in favour of social inclusion of young people with migrant background and reinforce their role as (European) citizens. This will be achieved by providing them and youth organizations with the set of methods and tools supporting youth workers in their professional activities on developing and improving migrants’ basic soft skills, taking initiative and extracting their potential by using art as a driver for education and integration.

The main target group are youth organizations and youth workers dealing with young people with migrant background. The project focuses on shaping their competencies in work with migrant youth. Increase of YW knowledge and skills will influence young migrants, who form the second main target group.
