A new publication, ‘Reach More Young People! Promoting Youth Work and Youth Information Services’ has been launched to inspire organisations working with young people across Europe.
Packed with great examples of models, tools, cases studies and services, the document is designed to inspire youth and information workers to innovate and learn from each other. It also serves as a tool for policy-makers to advance youth work and youth mobility at all levels.
The publication has been jointly developed by the European Youth Card Association (EYCA), European Youth Information and Counselling Agency (ERYICA) and Eurodesk. It encompasses best practice across Europe: from Finland to Cyprus, from Portugal to Turkey, and from Scotland.
A copy of the report can be downloaded from here.
The examples demonstrate the diversity, creativity and effectiveness of using tools and non-formal education when engaging young people as active citizens.
It is a product of the long-standing cooperation between EYCA, ERYICA networks and a statement of commitment to the European youth sector as a continent where all young people have access to information and mobility services.
‘Reach More Young People! Promoting Youth Work and Youth Information Services’ is a key part of the project by the same name, financed by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission, Key Action 1.
Louise Macdonald, President of the EYCA and Chief Executive of Young Scot, said,
“Across Europe there many innovative and exciting examples of how organisations are using digital tools to create opportunities and provide information for young people. We can all learn from one another. The EYCA, EYRICA and Eurodesk are powerful networks that support us to better serve the young people of Europe.”
