"Every Wall is a Door: Inclusion and Employability for youth with fewer opportunities"" is an ERASMUS+ KA1/Mobility of Youth Workers seminar that was implemented in Kalamata, Greece from the 7th to the 14th of December 2014. In it participated 26 youth workers, 1 trainer and 1 facilitator from 13 different countries, Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, France, Holland, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, UK, Poland and Cyprus.
The main aim of this seminar was the exchange of tools and good practices, as well as the creation of methods by the participating youth workers in order to be able to better support and empower the young people they are working with and boost their confidence and sense of initiative, in order for them to be able to adapt and respond more quickly and effectively to the constant change around them, as well as to overcome the feelings of unease and uncertainty cultivated by the economic and social crisis in today's Europe. The main focus of the seminar was activities that foster youth employability and the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities in the labour market.
Using a set of non-formal education tools and methods (role playing, group work, active dialogue, simulation and experiential exercises, etc) participating youth workers talked about the needs of the young people in each country and the challenges that they are facing, compared good practices, discussed about methods and tools to empower and support young people, and especially young NEETs (Not in Education, Employment or Training) and created new tools and follow up projects together.
The project had a direct impact on the participants, who developed skills and competences that allow them to improve the services they provide to the young people, but also to the young people in their local communities, that benefit from these services. Additionally, through this project 4 different follow-up activities to be further developed and implemented under the ERASMUS+ project were drafted, something that gives added value to the Programme itself.
The results of this seminar were disseminated to a wide audience, young people and organizations, all over Europe, using press releases, social media and our websites. In all our communications, all required logos were used and the ERASMUS+ programme and the EC support were duly mentioned.
