Sentire Association together with partners from Turkey, Italy, Greece, Croatia announces the end of the
project "Youth Work: Act of Inclusion.
This project is funded by the European Commission through the Erasmus Plus program.
The group was made up of 27 young workers aged over 18. The youth workers have participated
in non-formal education activities that have been pursued: developing work skills through non-formal
education methods, especially in working with marginalized and excluded people in society.
Duration of the training: 05.02.2019 - 12.02.2019
Location of the training course: Horezu, Valcea.
Objective 1. After 9 months of project involving all stages of the project - DEOR, the implementation of
the Dissemination and Exploitation of Results (DEOR), the 27 youth workers have developed their
knowledge of inclusion, stereotypes of prejudices, have become more empathic with young people with
limited opportunities and are currently trained, actively involved in the organization and community in
working with young people. This goal started by motivating and increasing the enthusiasm of the young
workers selected in the Training Stage. They worked together with the co-ordinators and picked up the
problems from the "grass line" (young people with low opportunities). They contacted the
Implementation Team and the trainer and we did activities according to their needs. Practical activities,
debates, examples of good practice and communication sessions have accomplished this goal. During
the dissemination phase, the most important role was played by youth workers who were actively
involved in dissemination workshops in and outside the NGO.
Objective 2. The 27 youth workers have learned to use non-formal education methods in working with
young people with fewer opportunities. They are able to use at least 5 methods of non-formal education
in youth work. This objective has been achieved through activities such as: Nonfromal Education
Methods Fair, Practical Activities and Inclusion Activities. The biggest loom was in the DEOR Stage,
where youth workers made workshops with young people with fewer opportunities.
Objective 3. The 27 youth workers have developed their attitudes towards young people with fewer
opportunities by launching new local projects and involving young people with fewer opportunities. This
Objective was reached in the Dissemination Stage, through the workshops made by them. We believe
that discussions, networking and live communication helped to achieve this goal.
The key competences gained from the project are:
1 Civic competences - youth workers know how to communicate and do activities with young people
with problems - marginalized, excluded, etc.
2 Learning by doing: They have the need to learn, and now it is much easier to use nonfromal education
methods in their activities.
3 Acquiring cultural skills: through the exchange of ideas, traditions and dance - especially during the
4 Skills to speak in English: this was gained through each stage of the project - all discussions were in
English, the workers were put in rooms from different countries to embark on their cohesion in the
