Our project in a nutshell
CREATIVE YOUTHWORK NETWORK (CYN) was a cross field partnership of Youth, VET and community organisations engaging with young people. Our aim was to develop innovative education training methodologies and outputs that can better support disadvantaged groups to reconnect with learning, training in developing skills and having fun whilst addressing a multitude of issues that they face personally and professionally.
Throughout the two-year cooperation we designed and piloted a 3-week workshop for youth workers from four European countries (UK, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary). This workshop was aimed to train youth workers to design and facilitate their own educational events that would engage and inspire hard to reach young people, such as NEETs. The workshop, which was piloted in Wolverhapton (UK), consisted of art and media themed sessions which showed youth workers how to use creative approaches (drama, music, photography, radio) as a learning and teaching tool. All workshop participants prepared their own local events for young people in their home countries. Check pictures and videos here.
All resources and tools are here for you – either you are a professional or aspiring youth worker, teacher, trainer, , coach or mentor. We will be happy if you share your experience or suggestions with us. Check the news on our
