The “Youth Work Lab” study session was held at the European Youth Centre in Budapest from 6 the 10 June 2022.
Co-organised by Erasmus Student Network, the activity aimed at empowering the participants to make the (first) steps towards the recognition of youth work and competencies of youth workers by cooperating with the key actors on the local, regional and national levels.
Through non-formal education, the thirty participants, ESN volunteers coming from all over Europe, discussed the challenges faced by youth workers, explored Youth Work recognition and got acquainted with the relevant policy standards and recommendations. Moreover, they worked together on the creation of a Youth Work Toolkit, which will be promoted among the organisation to better advocate for the recognition of youth work and youth work competencies.
