NEXT GENERATION - Innovative resources and tools for children and young people with fewer opportunities
Start date: Mar 1, 2015, End date: Nov 30, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The capacity building project “NEXT GENERATION - Innovative resources and tools for children and young people with fewer opportunities” aims to strengthen the cooperation and the exchange of good practices and competences between EU (Hungary, Czech Republic and Italy), Latin America (Nicaragua, Uruguay and Argentina) and Asia (India) in the work for inclusion of minors, adolescents and young people coming from difficult social, economical and family backgrounds.Non-formal learning, experiential learning and learning by doing will be the main methodologies used. Reciprocal approach between coordinating, sending and hosting organisations, youth workers, EVS volunteers, children, young people and external stakeholders will be the basis for activities preparation, implementation and long-term sharing of good inclusion practices and techniques.An online web-based platform called NEXT GENERATION will be the main sharing tool: users will be able to upload resources, methods and good practices (pictures, texts and audio-video contents), which will be available for free downloading and easy feedback during the project and beyond its lifetime.Youth workers and EVS volunteers will learn how to plan and implement new and innovative trainings, relational support meetings, workshops and leisure time activities for disadvantaged children, adolescents and young people. Therefore, this capacity building project will develop youth workers' and EVS volunteers' set of technical, transversal and intercultural skills and competences which may also open new job opportunities and improve their employability in the social work field at a local, national and international level. Creativity, entrepreneurship, teamwork and sense of initiative will be continuously developed thus promoting a real and deep personal and professional growth of youth workers and volunteers. Tools and resources about ICT in education and volunteers' and youth workers' preparation and training will be provided.The mobility will include 14 young EVS volunteers (8 Italians, 1 Czech, 1 Hungarian, 2 Indians, 1 Argentinian and 1 Uruguayan) - some of them with fewer opportunities), who will live a 9-month experience abroad during which they will acquire and share both theoretical and practical new skills in this field. CSD - Diaconia Valdese, as coordinating organisation, will assure the correct progress of the work and of the intercultural experience.
