youth from Europe

We are working hard on innovating youth working. Why should youth work be innovated?

Youth work is overall the activity around the empowerment of young people, providing spaces, discussion and competence-development as a transition phase to reach out adulthood and work duties in a mature and sound way, giving the real opportunity of experimenting in a safe environment. 

Therefore, youth work is really a bridge toward a conscious citizenship and aware working life. That is why we think that youth work practitioners, also defined youth workers or youth tutors need to better assess their actual impact.

Which competences need to be acquired by youth workers to assess their own impact?

Well, who better than youth workers can tell us what to do and which strategies for youth impact can be used?

So we decided to investigate and take the issue seriously with the project Y-UETH-PACT!

leadership compentencies for middle managers in Europe

If one project one needs to look at, it is Leadership for Middle Managers , a project on the skills that all middle managers need. We have involved more than 20 medium- and big-sized businesses based in Poland, Romania and Italy to assess and understand the issues faced by middle managers.

For sure, we live complicated times for SMEs. In an economy dominated by start-ups and liquid group work, talking about leadership and management is crucial. 

In fact, our shared question is What is the future of middle managers? This is a fundamental question as managers are still the heart and the core of employee engagement and of the business development.

focus group digital volunteers

Why do you need volunteers to go digital? This is a question that many associations have asked to us and we think there is an answer to give.

Volunteers are not just local force for local causes. In fact, they should act globally developing skills and competencies relevant for nowadays world. As such, volunteering is an essential step to be part of society. In this way, digital does not only mean to be connected via social networks and tell out loud what your organisation is doing. It also means to use technologies to create a clear shift toward the ‘making‘ approach.

What is more, volunteers are not just consumers of experiences, but they are rather experience makers. For this reason, we have supported a special Erasmus plus project called “Raise Volunteers in Tech” or #Raivotech. The project focuses on the creation of high quality training material about digital volunteers and youth workers. In this sense, an important figure has emerged: the digital youth worker. As figure, he/she is able to combine different human dimensions, virtual and offline.

A great tool is the Raivotech platform for digital volunteers based on innovative and very practical training material that can be a good chance to have a certificated experience.
