Project UP-Grade! was build on the need for professional development of youth workers and consequently higher level of youth work. Project objectives are: to provide youth organizations with an understanding of the concept and practice of participative learning for young people, to experiment different approaches, tools and exercises ranging in the field of participative learning for young people, to touch base with intercultural learning in youth activities, to create an environment that would favor the organizational, professional and personal development of the partners working in youth work and volunteering field across Europe. Project will bring together 28 youth workers and youth leaders from 7 different EU states. 7 days intensive training course will enable participants to go into the deepness of learning processes in non-formal educational approach. Active participation will be the main working method and will serve for searching the new innovative approaches, methods and tools for enhancing learning outcomes in youth activities in different areas around Europe. The modern way of coaching will be used to maximize the impact on participants. We expect we will succeed to inspire the participants for using gained competences in their own reality. We expect they will become the messengers of new generation of youth workers which will develop the community on the principles of inclusion. We believe that projects like this are helping to establish the critical number of active citizens, which will build the future of Europe - Europe of tolerance, solidarity and moderate progress.
