European Association “World-Our Home” director Natalija Covvo project coordinator Dace Deksne and financial manager Julija Springe organized the Erasmus + Youth Worker Mobility Project – Training course “Digital Youth Work” from 13th – 19th June 2023.
34 participants from 18 European countries participated in the project – Latvia, Croatia, Italy, Bulgaria, Spain, Lithuania, Turkey, Poland. Project was financed by the Erasmus + programme.
This training course aims to give youth workers space to experience and share digital tools and approaches as well as investigate new opportunities, all the while having an eye on the realities and challenges of using them with young people.
The aim was reached and participants got a lot of new ideas, useful digital tools, new partners, raised the capacity of NGOs, by providing youth workers with new skills and competencies in Digital youth work.
The project “Digital Youth Work” was the Erasmus + training course. During the project workshops the organizations discussed about the opportunities and challenges in digital youth work, develop digital competences and recognise how to apply them in youth work, explored and reviewed digital youth work tools and methodologies, there was the chance to test traditional methods in digital spaces, there was opportunity to share own expertise and learn from international peers.
