Contact Making Conference

The aim of this capacity building activity is to provide a platform for youth workers, youth work managers, leaders, educators and volunteers of the partner organisations involved in the project to speak about, find similarities and differences of policies, legislation and laws in their countries on volunteer and paid youth work, voluntary labour regulations and existing national/local validation tools of competences acquired through youth work and non-formal education/learning. Partners had also aimed to get to know each other and discuss, set up how to cooperate and work together during the project’s lifetime and beyond. 

 

Objectives:

  1. Get to know partners involved in this project, set up common ground on how to work and cooperate together within the project’s lifetime and beyond.

  2. Map the situation in partner countries on policies, legislation and laws on volunteer and paid youth work, voluntary labour regulations and existing national/local validation tools of competencies gained through youth work and non-formal education/learning.

  3. Create working groups to plan and prepare the upcoming activities (Study Visit, Training Course, Local Campaigns).
