Start date: Sep 1, 2016, End date: Jun 30, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project starts from the assumption that it is necessary to find effective solutions to build an integration that starts from the young, the real use of their resources, their skills and potential. Young immigrants can be a great benefit for Europe: to know about their experiences and their capabilities and understand how they can be strengthened, integrated and valued not only for their personal development but also for the development of the territory in which they live.The general objective of the project is to test methods to use the competences acquired through experiential path of participants.Specific objectives are:- Strengthen the skills of youth workers who work with organizations that deal with multiculturalism and cultural integration,- Provide youth workers with the tools to support young immigrants to recognize, strengthen and enhance the skills acquired in their courses experiential,- Encouraging participants in the self-evaluation processes, self-learning, self-awareness and whether through the methods and tools offered no formal education.The TC fact pursue its objectives through the stimulation of the participants, who are guided, through non-formal education tools, in participatory processes aimed at creating new narratives of the self, diversity and inclusion in Europe, who are capable to strengthen the idea of immigration as a civil growth opportunities, social, economic and cultural.The TC will bring together 39 participants from 12 European countries, including youth workers who work in the field of inclusion and social integration and cultural mediation; educational social workers or youth leaders working with young people in multicultural contexts, young people with fewer opportunities, immigrant youth and volunteers of organizations that deal with hospitality and cultural integration of migrants.The project aims to build a skills enhancement process by integrating experiential know-how with the creative contamination of young people from different cultures and contexts, through a multicultural approach and through the use of non-formal education methods and tools for structuring processes mutual learning.The process is structured around a few key concepts that will be the framework within which the methodology of non-formal learning will be applied:- Participation F-ActiveIt is a training program in which participants, through learning learning by doing and peer to peer learn to value and gain skills and experience from an exchange.- The centrality of the process of exchange and dialogueThe TC focuses on the skills of dialogue and exchange processes, promoting ownership and awareness of the involved participants throughout the learning process- "Fusion" between multicultural and non-formal methodologies inputThe TC focuses on the processes of acquisition of skills the meeting with the diversity and integration of differences, promoting the contamination of practices and processes and building forms of unprecedented cooperation.Within this methodological framework, the model of intervention will be structured into three general stages:1. "Being able to do together": a first phase of strengthening the already acquired competences and acquisition of new, through the sharing and exploitation of know-how in intercultural perspective.2. "Collaborative Creation": a phase of "fusion experiment" aimed at the implementation of joint activities that complement the skills of the participants involved and give back new results through the construction of new models of collaboration and interaction.3. "Shared awareness" phase in which participants will gain an awareness of their capacity due to the comparison with others. From the relationship with diversity emerge virtuous processes for self-realization of whether that offer participants the tools necessary for the development and marketability of its powers outside.Participants will learn methods and tools to improve the skills of recognition and valorisation of experiential paths, learning at the same time as the exchange and comparing the differences can help build new skills. The TC will enable participants to acquire essential skills that will contribute to their personal development and socio-educational and promote their active participation in favor of a more inclusive society where cultural pluralism and integration tools are applicable and not abstract concepts.
