The aim of the project is to increase the capacity of youth-related organisations in Europe to work with and to the best interest of young people in rural areas.In order to attain this aim, the project’s objective are to:- provide basic learning-centred rural youth work competencies to 26 youth workers from 10 countries in Europe;- provide specific facilitation and international/ intercultural youth work in rural areas competencies to 26 youth workers from 10 countries in Europe;- provide professional self management competencies to 26 rural youth workers from 10 countries in Europe;- enhance the use of monitoring, evaluation, recognition and validation tools for competencies acquired through nonformal learning in the 10 partner organisations working in rural Europe;- create a networking framework that would enhance the organisational and professional development of the 10 partner organisations working in rural youth work around Europe.The activities are a suite of training courses for youth workers from, basic youth work to coping with BurnOut in Youth Work.
