Do IT in Youth Work (15/12/2019)

Training course on digital youth work composed of both online and offline elements with the aim of empowering youth workers and helping them develop digital competencies of young people they work with.

Digital youth work is an emerging term to describe the area of youth work that uses digital media and new technology to enhance outcome focussed youth development. The term is used to describe work that can happen in face-to-face situations, social and group settings as well as in online environments - or in a mixture of these. It is relevant to all youth work pedagogies and can enhance all types of practice.

New generation of youth, born into the 21st century, grew up with technology all around them. While youthworkers still „avoid“ digital tools in their work, many IT professionals stepped in to educate future workers in programming, designing, gaming or social media literacy. On one hand, traditional youthworkers lack IT skills and are afraid to use them, while on the other hand, IT professionals lack educational skills necessary to implement non-formal education. This training course will focus on both perspectives to provide a general overview.

If you are a digital enthusiast or a youthworker interested in expanding your competencies, this training course is a right place for you. Independent of your background and resources, this training course will provide information and methods for effective digital youth work.

Training course will be implemented online and offline. Participants will be asked to participate in elearning course before and after the live training itself.
