“Life Love Youthpass” Training Course

25-30 May 2014 | The Clare Inn, Co. Clare , Ireland

The Youthpass support person (mentor) plays a crucial role in the educational processes of volunteers, helping them to identify the personal learning objectives and recognising learning outcomes through dialogue and feedback.

Are you a Youthpass support person in EVS? Are you aware of educational processes within EVS? Do you know how to support Youthpass process? If any of these questions spark an interest then this training is for you…

The “Life Love Youthpass” training course aims at highlighting and enhancing the quality of the educational aspects within EVS. The focus will be on exploring Youthpass as a tool for learning and how to transfer the learning outcomes into the Key Competences of Youthpass.

The methodology used in this training will be based on experiential learning and non-formal education. Participants will explore but also experience these processes themselves during the training through reflection of learning and methodology like learning to learn (L2L) and self-directed learning (SDL).

Additionally, this training course encourages participants to share and exchange experiences and knowledge about their role as a Youthpass support person.

Objectives:
• To understand the concept of EVS as an educational programme and to discover the philosophy behind Youthpass.
• To explore the dimension of learning within EVS project and to connect it with non formal/informal and self-directed learning
• To develop competences on facilitating the learning process and on the self-assessment of learning outcomes in EVS
• To develop competences on the implementation of the Youthpass as a process, learning how to use it as tool for learning recognition
• To provide a clear understanding of the key competence within Youthpass
• To reflect on the role of the Youthpass support person regarding the learning of the EVS volunteer

• Directly involved in the supporting EVS volunteers (e.g. mentors and task-related support persons) on the hosting, sending and coordinating side,
• Experienced in supporting Youthpass in EVS,
• Able to work and communicate in English (working language!),

“EVS for All” Contact Making Seminar

logos

The project was developed over 9 months as a result of promoting EVS with Youth Services (centres) in Ireland and Slovenia. It became clear that many Youth Services are interested in sending young people with fewer opportunities on short term EVS. But unfortunately they do not have partners and find it difficult to know how to proceed.

The CMS was aimed at Youth Services (centres) who wish to build partnerships with the view to sending young people with fewer opportunities abroad on their EVS. In order to send EVS volunteers with fewer opportunities organisations need to have a trusted network of organisations that are in the position of supporting volunteers with extra needs. 

UntitledWe explored how the other actions of YiA can support sending volunteers, and find a way to strategically incorporate YiA in the day to day work of the organisations.

Each organisation participated with one youth worker and one young person, thus involving young people from an early stage. We hoped that the young participants would become active in promoting EVS in their own organisation, that they would be supported to find themselves a suitable EVS placement and that their active participation in general will be stimulated.

Note: most of the young people participating in this project found themselves an EVS placement!
