Non-formal youth work and formal youth studies

This Conference is the 1st activity of Erasmus+ Capacity Building in the field of Youth action named “International Youth Studies: Curricula, Distance learning course and open educational materials /InYouS/”

The main aim of the Conference is to compare non-formal youth work and formal youth studies taking into account different approaches, bringing together young people and university teachers, researchers and practical youth workers, decision makers and leaders of youth clubs.

During the conference each country will present its research results done before the Conference. We will concentrate on each case, discuss, create special sheets for comparing country by country and create common basis for development of educational resources. The results of the conference will be published and serve as a starting point for further development of the curricula and learning materials on International Youth Studies and Youth Work.

Next, a working group with involvement of EaP and EU peers will be established to develop a training package and educational materials for mobility activities: (1) a training on International youth work – recognition and quality of non-formal education; (2) two youth exchanges on Promoting youth work: Why? and How?
