Our resources for youth workers and youth researchers are ready!

We finished our second resource for youth workers. It is a guideline with the LEAP methodology, conceived for the implementation of Project-based Learning with young people in the non-formal education sector. It gathers our experience in implementing this method, and we will share hands-on ideas about how to use PBL. The goal of this resource is to support youth organisations in the implementation of PBL.

This resource is divided into three parts:

  1. In the first section, the description of our methodology and what to consider when using it.
  2. Practices of Project-based Learning: actionable ideas. In the second will be able to read about the organisation of a project with young Europeans in face-to-face and/or online mobility.
  3. Tips, Tools and Activities for youth workers. You can find a list of these in the third section of the document.

If you are only interested in the Project-based Learning tools for working with young people, it is available free of charge on our website leap.univie.ac.at in English, German, Italian and Croatian.

Moreover, we also finalised the LEAP Youth Charter on Participation, which is divided in two parts: a document which is an introduction to the development of the final format, a Charter whose main goal is to advocate for the grounding values around youth participation and active citizenship, promoted during LEAP lifetime. The second one is an audio guideline on Project Based Learning (PBL) as well as some testimonials of young people who participated in the project activities at local and international level.

The purpose of these guidelines is to provide a common framework for collecting young mobility participants’ perspectives and opinions on participation to elaborate the charter on youth participation. The Charter is meant to show the results of our work with young people and provide policy recommendations. The content of the Charter is the result of a survey with open-ended questions that were answered by young Austrians, Croatians and Italians. Furthermore, it is the result of an online virtual mobility that involved around 40 participants and of trainings organised with them before and after the mobility.
