This project aligns with the Digital Education Action Plan (2021-2027), focusing on enhancing non-formal education by integrating theater methodologies to promote inclusivity, innovation, and impactful youth engagement.

The COVID-19 crisis shed light on the importance of digital education for the digital transformation that Europe, European society, and European organisations need. In particular, it emphasised the increased need to harness the potential of digital technologies for education and to develop digital skills for all, youth workers included. In line with this need and the strategic priorities of the Digital Education Action Plan (2021-2027), this project aims to support this endeavour to engage the partner organisations and youth workers in the path to digital transformation also of the non-formal education.

The project promotes and supports and answers the needs of the partners and their target groups about:

  • the use of non formal and informal learning combined with theatre methodologies and practices for inclusion in their activities with young people;
  • cooperation with other European organisations, quality, inclusion, creativity and innovation, through a more agile development of digital techniques and theatre practices to foster the inclusion of all youngsters.

The research made by our project groups has shown that different social theatre techniques are used to address current issues such as the integration of immigrants, violence, bullying, drug addiction, abandonment of suburbs, etc. Theatre and performing arts are used as tool for dialogue, cultural encounters and exchanges, to create links and empathy between people and groups with different feelings and behaviour, for experimenting with shared and participatory proposals that are real answers and solutions to the problems encountered by people, groups and communities.

For example in Spain, in the tradition of Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed and Latin American Community Theatre, they use the term Teatro Social as the political theatre par excellence, based on the action of citizens, groups and communities as a creative methodology for the transformation of society, whether at an educational, inclusive, therapeutic, motivational, awareness-raising, recreational, artistic or creative level. Theatre can therefore be put at the service of youth workers, without assuming that they become actors or theatre specialists, but that they can use it as a proper means of working on youth inclusion.

There will be 28 youth workers coming from the partner organizations (Italy, Spain, Greece and North Macedonia), their close associated partners and main local stakeholders and organisations to ensure diffusion and early transfer of the results prepared.

The learning program will be conceived to be adaptable to the learning needs of the group, with no prejudice to the overall quality.

Self-reflection and interaction with other participants and trainers will be the dimension in which trainers will work to improve, empower and expand knowledge and competences in inclusion, theatre, NFE, regular and digital youth work.

  • Efforts to promote awareness and competence in inclusion, theater methodologies, non-formal education, and digital youth work are central to our mission;
  • Present the opportunities and tools to implement youth work in a digital environment;
  • Assess the R1 and R2 and use them as a base for the training
  • Involve them in the assessment, production, finalization and dissemination of results;
  • Get ready for the pilot with youngsters and prepare youth workers to use results;
  • Develop professional competences and increase their efficiency
  • Improve the quality of youth work;
  • Introduce the reflection as a tool (based on the key competences in the Youthpass) of learning;
  • Connect youth workers and create the community R3.

Different working methods will be applied during the Training, like as interactive workshops, presentations, role plays, world-café, living- library, concentrating on the active involvement of participants.

Methodology and tools are chosen in order to meet the needs and objectives of the project. The methodology is based on non-formal education methods, on developing and challenging individuals and groups through a creative stimulation that connects objectives and contents with personal experiences. The participants are engaged intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically in the training.

Learning process is based on interaction among participants and the trainer.

This Training Course serves to train the Youth Workers, involving them in all the phases of the project (production, implementation, pilot, evaluation, promotion) and supporting them in a path of growth and development of competences and knowledge. Since we aim to create effective and efficient results, in order to foster the achievement of our objective to guide youth workers on a growth and innovation process by providing them with knowledge and competences on inclusion, theatre and digital youth work, leading to a combination of all these spheres of action, we consider the implementation of this training indispensable.

This will also contribute to create an international community of youth workers who will support each other by exchanging experiences, results and good practices ensuring the wide exploitation and sustainability of results after the end of the funded project period.

Training for youth workers aims to provide them with the knowledge and competences about inclusive approaches and principles, theatre methodologies and practices, digital youth work and NFE to implement inclusive activities applying methodologies and practices used mostly in the field of theatre, which can be implemented also in digital youth work.

This Training Course also aims to assess and validate the efficiency, clarity, exhaustiveness and usability of the Result 1 and Result 2, to connect youth workers from different realities and countries setting up the community (Result 3) and get the youth workers ready to deliver the local piloting.

Manual for Youth Workers

The past is rock. Climb to understand the future! 

This Manual is designed to support Youth Workers providing a background knowledge of methodologies and practices used mostly in the field of theater, with the aim to produce inclusive Non-Formal Education (NFE) activities. When addressing inclusion, it is important to know what to take into consideration to create effective inclusive activities in face-to-face activities and also in digital youth work. We
strongly believe that theater can be put at the service of youth workers to foster inclusion.

This Manual has been produced within YOU.TH. project. “Tools for inclusive YOU.TH. (YOUth workers and Theater workers in synergy). A Real-digital trajectory” is an Erasmus+ KA220 Cooperation Partnership in the field of youth.

Our Manual has the aim of increasing awareness on the necessary knowledge, skills and competences contributing to efficient use of theater methodologies and practices to foster inclusion of youngsters in regular or digital youth work.

Adressing the rising issue

TRIO Education

Adressing the rising issue of children aggression by providing essential training to educators/trainers and support for parents in managing conflicts effectively.

The “Trio Education: Trainers, Parents, Children” project commences by examining the current situation within the partner institutions’ respective regions. This analysis encompasses two key aspects: firstly, the prevalence of aggressive behavior among children and adolescents, which manifests in diverse ways across educational settings, households, social centers, medical-social facilities, streets, playgrounds, and other contexts. Secondly, it addresses the specific professional requirements of trainers within these partner institutions to support parents in actively participating in their children’s education.

In their respective regions of France, Spain, Romania, Italy, and North Macedonia, the partner institutions are grappling with a rising trend of youth aggression, further exacerbated by the ongoing pandemic. It becomes imperative to provide training for trainers and facilitate the exchange of effective practices among parents. This is essential because the aggressive conduct displayed by young individuals may conceal underlying issues that, if left unaddressed, could lead to challenges in their social and vocational integration later on.

The primary focus of the project is on the trainers within the partner associations, including social workers, education professionals, educational counselors, and multidisciplinary practitioners. These individuals require intervention strategies to effectively respond to the numerous requests for assistance from families grappling with challenges in raising their aggressive children.

Parents often explain their children’s aggressive behavior with statements like, ‘I’m not sure how to handle this,’ and at times, they might even deny their children’s behavior, indicating a lack of deep understanding. Several factors contribute to the escalation of children’s aggression. Firstly, educational systems tend to discourage punitive measures. Additionally, some parents resist collaboration in addressing their children’s aggressive tendencies and fail to actively contribute to their upbringing. Given the diverse ways in which children express aggression, it’s crucial to provide tailored support that aligns with the specific type of aggression, individual needs, and parental expectations.

Only a limited number of institutions offer guidance to parents on effectively handling everyday conflicts. Consequently, there is a growing imperative for associations to take on the role of educating parents based on the scientific principles of psycho-pedagogy.

Project Specific Objectives

To provide trainers in partner institutions with knowledge and skills to educate parents and motivate them to participate effectively in reducing the aggressive behaviour of their children.

To acquire new knowledge, new strategies, new skills to create personalized education techniques depending on the type of aggression, the particularities and needs of each child.

To help partner institutions improve their training offer in adult education, to provide high quality activities through counseling, workshops, publications and online tools.

To develop collaboration with specialists in children’s psychology, with specialized institutions, with educational institutions and the involvement in their lives, in order to create effective educational synergies at regional level.

Gamification for Intercultural Education

Support the process of social integration of intercultural school communities by providing necessary practical resources for teachers, educational institutions.

Counteracting the phenomena of intolerance, mistrust, ignorance, traditional and prejudice against other cultures, peoples, races or religions hostility and prejudice against other cultures, peoples, races or religions as a result enables creativity based on cooperation.
The aim of the project is to contribute to the efforts already undertaken by the European Union to promote cultural diversity, which is a real richness when individual cultural groups take care of their ‘treasures’ on the one hand and can show it to others in the right light on the other. This is the only way to create a strong foundation for building creative attitudes among the young generation.
The project is designed to:
  1. Create a pedagogical impact by generating innovative, game-based teaching methodology;
  2. Impact on training practices of educators, trainers, teachers in adult education;
  3. Impact on the quality of work and competences of teachers by creating educational materials, including a textbook and an e-learning course.

One of the most important tasks of the modern education system is the problem of preparing the young generations for life in a society where it will be necessary to define one’s attitude towards others, which are different in cultural terms. Are we adequately prepared to live with people with different cultural identities from ours? Can education overcome or reduce existing stereotypes and prejudices and, in the long term, prevent social tensions and conflicts? These questions remain open.

The learning material include:
  1. Identification of current intercultural problems in the local community;
  2. Instructions on preparation of a didactic game concept appropriate to intercultural issues;
  3. Preparation of a scenario of a game for the three types of environment: outdoor, indoor (board game), online;
  4. Lessons from the implementation (testing process of the prepared game);
  5. Practical tips & recommendations for teachers;
  6. Description of the developed games, instructions for outdoor, board and Internet versions.
Support for creativity cultural awareness

The aim is to develop skills and competences that enhance the creativity of participants, contribute to social inclusion through culture and art, shape cultural awareness and build intercultural dialogue through didactic games used in intercultural education.

Project results:

By using the project results in the intercultural education of teaching games, whose key features are creativity, fun, rules and joy, teachers will gain very useful tools that are liked and used periodically in the implementation of school curricula.

Learning Teaching Traning Activity

Training of Youth Workers

The Training Course took place in Morfasso, Italy from 4-10 May 2023

There will be 28 youth workers coming from the partner organizations (Italy, Spain, Greece and North Macedonia), their close associated partners and main local stakeholders and organisations to ensure diffusion and early transfer of the results prepared.

The learning program will be conceived to be adaptable to the learning needs of the group, with no prejudice to the overall quality.

Self-reflection and interaction with other participants and trainers will be the dimension in which trainers will work to improve, empower and expand knowledge and competences in inclusion, theatre, NFE, regular and digital youth work.

  • Efforts to promote awareness and competence in inclusion, theater methodologies, non-formal education, and digital youth work are central to our mission;
  • Present the opportunities and tools to implement youth work in a digital environment;
  • Assess the R1 and R2 and use them as a base for the training
  • Involve them in the assessment, production, finalization and dissemination of results;
  • Get ready for the pilot with youngsters and prepare youth workers to use results;
  • Develop professional competences and increase their efficiency
  • Improve the quality of youth work;
  • Introduce the reflection as a tool (based on the key competences in the Youthpass) of learning;
  • Connect youth workers and create the community R3.

Different working methods will be applied during the Training, like as interactive workshops, presentations, role plays, world-café, living- library, concentrating on the active involvement of participants.

Methodology and tools are chosen in order to meet the needs and objectives of the project. The methodology is based on non-formal education methods, on developing and challenging individuals and groups through a creative stimulation that connects objectives and contents with personal experiences. The participants are engaged intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically in the training.

Learning process is based on interaction among participants and the trainer.

This Training Course serves to train the Youth Workers, involving them in all the phases of the project (production, implementation, pilot, evaluation, promotion) and supporting them in a path of growth and development of competences and knowledge. Since we aim to create effective and efficient results, in order to foster the achievement of our objective to guide youth workers on a growth and innovation process by providing them with knowledge and competences on inclusion, theatre and digital youth work, leading to a combination of all these spheres of action, we consider the implementation of this training indispensable.

This will also contribute to create an international community of youth workers who will support each other by exchanging experiences, results and good practices ensuring the wide exploitation and sustainability of results after the end of the funded project period.

Training for youth workers aims to provide them with the knowledge and competences about inclusive approaches and principles, theatre methodologies and practices, digital youth work and NFE to implement inclusive activities applying methodologies and practices used mostly in the field of theatre, which can be implemented also in digital youth work.

This Training Course also aims to assess and validate the efficiency, clarity, exhaustiveness and usability of the Result 1 and Result 2, to connect youth workers from different realities and countries setting up the community (Result 3) and get the youth workers ready to deliver the local piloting.

Aiming of increasing awareness on the necessary
knowledge, skills and competences contributing to efficient use of
theater methodologies and practices to foster inclusion of youngsters in
regular or digital youth work.
