Sobre el proyecto
Youth work can greatly contribute to young people’s personal and social development and as a result the society also grows when young people are well equipped with competences that can have a positive impact in their lives and their communities at large. There is a strong motivation for further improvement within the sector and there are a lot of significant efforts being done throughout Europe, on national, regional and local level, to enhance the quality and recognition of youth work. We believe that youth work can be better recognised by measuring its real impact and effects on young people’s lives. Often, youth organisations focus on the quantitative and not on the qualitative outputs. In order though to ensure the credibility and the real value of youth work, the opportunities and challenges in youth work shall be identified and analysed and quality tools shall be developed. For this reason, the training course LevelUp! aims to gather youth workers, youth NGO practitioners, youth educators and volunteers with the aim of sharing best practices, experiences and expertise on measuring and assuring quality in youth work and on identifying and validating youth workers’ competences. Youth workers & youth educators, NGO practitioners as well as volunteers involved in youth projects, from Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus, Germany, Greece, Poland, Portugal, Spain and United Kingdom participated in the first activity of the training course “LevelUp!” in Dresden, Germany from 15 to 19 October 2018. During the first activity, the participants discussed the current situation of youth work in their countries and identified the main challenges in youth work at local, national and European level. Moreover, quality development tools were introduced, which the participants used in certain activities. Furthermore, the Portfolio competence framework of the Council of Europe and the History of youth work’s recognition were presented. The BADU Open Badges were introduced as an innovative tool that validates youth workers’ competences. The participants worked in pairs to reflect on, discuss and identify their own and their peers’ competences. Then they selected Open Badges for each other and learned how to issue and claim them on the BADU Online platform. After the completion of the first activity in Dresden, the partner organisations and the participants are expected to provide their feedback on the usefulness and effectiveness of the BADU Open Badges developed by JKPeV and our international partners. The second activity is going to take place between 25 and 30 January 2019 in Thessaloniki, Greece. It comprises interactive workshops, team-building activities, case-studies, study-visits to youth centres, role-playing games, storytelling and theatre methods, sharing good practices tools and methods about qualitative youth work through team/group/pair work and round-table discussions. The main topics that are going to be covered in the second activity are the following:
- Discussing the effectiveness of “Open Badges” as a tool for the validation of youth workers’ competences and how the youth workers that participated in the first activity of the training course used this tool further after the implementation of the first activity in Dresden.
- Quality development in practice – case studies about the intercultural opening of organisations
- Quality and professionalization of European youth work
- Exploring local youth work in Thessaloniki through study-visits
- Story telling methods to involve and engage young people through artistic approaches

- Good practice in quality volunteer management
- Networking and follow-up of the training course

The participants will be invited to reflect on their day to day work realities, as well as on the learning process during this course.

- The applicants should send to their sending organisations and to the host organisation JKPeV (email@example.com) their CVs and registration forms.
- JKPeV is going to select the most suitable participants that will share their knowledge, experience and expertise during and after the implementation of the second activity of the LevelUp! training course in Thessaloniki.

Within the frame of ‘recognition of non-formal learning’, all participants will receive a ‘Youthpass’ Certificate at the end of this training. Youthpass is part of the European Commission’s strategy to foster the recognition of non-formal learning. It is a certificate which supports the reflection upon the personal non- formal learning process and visualises and fosters active European citizenship of young people and youth workers. Moreover, Youthpass is a Europe-wide validation instrument for non-formal learning in the youth field. It contributes to strengthening the social recognition of youth work and makes visible the key competences of participants gained through an Erasmus+ project. Youthpass finally aims at supporting the employability of young people and youth workers.
