The Youth Participation Toolkit is a resource to accompany and complement the Youth Participation Strategy and addressed to everyone in the Youth Work community of practice who wishes to enable and foster youth participation through the EU youth programmes.
The Youth Participation Toolkit contains 12 modules, each of them usable as a freestanding resource, which combine to form a toolkit for specific types of actions or projects of the EU youth programmes. The content of each module serves to enhance participation using the opportunities provided by Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps. At the same time, all modules are informed by three issues of importance for youth participation today: Inclusion and Diversity, Digital Transformations and Sustainability.
The toolkit provides practical ideas and guidance to foster youth participation and take on board the ideas, concepts, and good practices for participation that the Youth Participation Strategy presents. With the toolkit, you will find a more comprehensive understanding of youth participation theory and concepts, improve the quality of thought and practice on youth participation and build experience using the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes to support young people’s participation.
The information outlined in the Youth Participation Toolkit will support you in considering young people and their participation needs and wishes, guided by the values promoted by the European institutions, through the EU Youth Strategy and the European Youth Goals, in general, and through the Youth Participation Strategy, specifically.
