Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Youth Participation: Core of Youth Work is a project developed and ran by young people for young people. It's a project seeking a motivation from participants through creative international environment for strong long-lasting multiplying effect in participating organisations. We believe that opinions of young people are not enough widely taken into account in our organisations and that they posses a major potential to create more inclusive, diverse and participatory educational activities in the future. The project will have direct impact on 25 youth leader from 7 different countries, who actively and voluntarely work with children. Participants are asked to be willing and able to implement the developed projects in their local organisations. The project consist of 2 concrete activities. Advanced planning visit takes place in the same area as the actual course about a month before. Big part of the planning is done online, between the two activities. In order to carry out this project we have set up a set of objectives to lead the preparation and running the activities. The objectives, roughly explained, are the following ones: To introduce participation and it's importance in children growth to democratic citizen, to introduce human right education and non-formal education, to provide needed resources for participants to plan and run educational activities and processes, to create long lasting multiplyer effect inside the participating organisations and communities, to promote internationalism. All the sessions taking place during the project will be done by using non-formal and in-formal methods and dynamics, experimental learning, participatory activities and nature as well as international environment as educative tool. Reflecting and evaluation will be big part of each activity to ensure learning of individuals. The most important impact is in participants, in their behaviour, thinking and knowledge. Through young motivated people with a decent set of values will strengthen our organisations. They will utilise the learned skills and create interesting projects in the future spiced with new ideas and enthusiasm.
