For the curious and the inexperienced

If international activities have been discussed in your organisation for a long time, but no-one knows how to start, this training is for you.

To join this training, you don't have to know anything about international youth work. The only thing you need is curiosity towards international youth work and a wish to explore the opportunities of EU's Youth Programmes. We will take care of the rest.

First steps towards international youth work

Are you aware that international youth work activities are possible also in rural areas? Do you know international projects can benefit your young people and the local community a lot?

This training will help you understand how projects in Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps can be carried out in small-scale places. You will learn how they fit in organisations with limited resources or who are in geographically challenged areas.

Explore rural youth work with colleagues from other countries. Together you start to see how different projects fit the needs, expectations and resources of your organisation.

Supportive approach

Experienced trainers and staff will give you concrete advise how to start international activities. You will see examples of activities and teast your own ideas with support.

If you are ready to apply funding for projects on the October 2022 deadline, you can take first steps into project planning and applying - but you don't have to.

You don't have to apply for a grant if you do not wish to do so. In the training you can see different ways of going international, with or without European funding. Hopefully after the training you understand, why a European project is not such a bad idea.

Also, it is ok if you do not know what you want or need. Talking with colleagues will help you figure it out.

What is youth work?

Youth worker means different things in different countries. For this training, it is essential that you regularly run activities or organise hobbies, open houses or services for young people between 13-30 years of age.

You can be a paid professional, an actively working volunteer or a peer leader, who is over 18 years of age, as long as your role is to support other young people in a regular youth work setting in young people's free time.

Rural youth workers - come together!

To join the activity, you need to be a youth worker in a rural area - in a small village or town, in scarcely populated area or in a faraway place - if you are, this newcomer activity is for you.

Being a newcomer means that you do not have any previous activity in EU's Youth Programmes, or in international activties. Or your experience is very small, happened years ago or you were not in charge of it.

Come in pairs or teams!

It makes sense to build knowledge and competence in an organisation or local village. If you want to join as a pair or a team of three, you can. Sometimes going together with a colleague from the same organisation helps to build the ground for new activities.

On the other hand, networking with other organisations in your locality may be a good idea. When resources are scarce it makes sense to share responsibilities. You can gather up a group of local youth workers from different organisations and make plans to organise international activities together.

Think about what setting is useful for you: should you bring your boss to convice them about international youth work? Maybe a less experienced colleague needs to have a more experienced colleague to support them? If it is useful for you, it should be useful for us.

You can also bring someone to help you with English. If the activity is good for you, but need help with your English, bring someone to help you translating and expressing your thougts.

Safe, accessible and sustainable

In our activities we support the principle of a safer space. It means all the participants have the freedom to be themselves, express themselves freely and be included in all the activities without discrimination, bullying or harrassing others. We want you to respect the same principle, too.

Our activities are accessible to people with disabilities. If you need a support person, accessible room and transport or supporting tools, we will provide it for you. You can tell us your needs in beforehand so that we can be ready.

We take sustainability in consideration where we can. Since most participants have to fly over the sea to Finland, we encourage you to travel on land within Finland. We also encourage you to contact your own national agency to find out how they support low-emission travelling to activities abroad.

We provide plant-based meals, or use locally grown and produced foods, as much as possible. We also respect the diets and food allergies of all participants.

Covid rules

Before you apply you should familiarise yourself with the Covid19 rules when traveling to Finland. If the rules change during the spring, we will update this call. If you are selected, you will have the updated information in the welcome letter.

Currently, please note that if you are not vaccinated, the entry rules are different for you. Unvaccinated persons must self-isolate for 3 days after entering Finland, even if they are tested at the airport. The self-isolation will happen right after arrival and therefore it makes the participation in the in training impossible.

Moreover, the Finnish NA cannot cover the costs caused by the self-isolation.

It is possible to apply / participate in the activity only if you are fully vaccinated with a vaccine that is approved in Finland or if you have a certificate of recovering from Covid 19 in less than 6 months from entering the country.
