PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This is an innovative Erasmus+ Youth project developed to address the need for a youth work response to the refugee and migration crisis in Europe. The project’s main activity, a residential training course for youth workers, aims to develop youth worker competences and enhance youth involvement for a positive resolution to the refugee crisis, mainly using the IOM/UNHCR Not Just Numbers Manual.
The project is a direct reflection of the interests and needs of young people in partner countries and organisations across European countries affected by the refugee crisis. Over the last four years the Middle East and Europe have been affected by wars, revolutions, armed conflict and tensions between societies and communities. Youth workers in all countries need to work jointly to respond to the new challenges in spirit of dialogue and co- operation. The IOM Not Just Numbers Manual (developed with UNHCR) provide a good platform for this.
The course will bring together 28 participants from organisations in seven countries. All participants will be selected by partner organisations on the basis of their experience and motivation to engage in migration and refugee issues through youth work.
The project’s overall educational objective is to develop participants’ youth work competences. Specific objectives include:

– To train participants in the use of Not Just Numbers Manual
– To reflect on realities of refugees and migrants in partner countries and the impact of the refugee crisis on young people
– To develop campaign activities on the theme of migration and asylum countering xenophobia, radicalisation, Islamophobia and intolerance
– To work on joint future projects addressing the refugee and migration crisis

WORKING METHODS

IOM campaign materials, IOM/UNHCR Not Just Numbers Manual, complemented by non-formal learning methods including storytelling, small group work, energizers, ice-breakers, team-building and intercultural learning activities, trainer inputs, multimedia presentations, group discussions and presentations.
