Start date: Aug 1, 2016, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The project "Shadows in nature - Job Shadows" will carry out 2 job shadows simultaneously bringing 2 participants from 2 countries (Slovenia & The Netherlands) to Hyvärilä Youth Centre, Nurmes, Finland, from 15th of August - 4th of September 2016. The participants will work together with Hyvärilä youth centre staff, co-lead activities, plan and organize, and support the implementation of youth work activities in Hyvärilä during a high season of youth work, social youth work and camp school groups. The project will happen during a "high season" of youth work and camp schools in Hyvärilä, in order to create international experiences for the participants and involved organisations, but also for the young poeple and children visitin the youth centre during that time. They will take role in co-leading workshops and activities based on their own previous experiences, as well as have the opportunity for learning new methodologies to use from the Hyvärilä staff. Hyvärilä staff and coordinators estimate that we will have about 400-500 young people and children passing through, engaging their selves educational activities in the 3 weeks period the job shadow participants are present. Based on this context and motivations, we are setting up the "Shadows in nature - Job Shadow" -Project during August-September 2016, bringing 2 youth workers to Hyvärilä youth centre for 3 weeks of exchange. The aim of the project is to develop the quality of youth work and professionals working especially in the topic and methodology of environmental education and adventure pedagogy in a youth work setting. Our concrete objectives are to:- Sharing good practices and methodologies of environmental and adventure pedagogical youth work- Developing skills of individuals in relation to environmental education- Giving an opportunity for individuals for coordination of an international youth project- Further developing cooperation of the partner organisations- Deepening understanding towards different (European) approaches towards youth work
