what we offer in our programme
digital youth work done the proper way!

The aim of our training courses is to provide youth workers new knowledge and skills, and to help them finding creative ways on how to combine analog & outdoor activities in youth work, using digital tools and apps that are used by youngsters, through a hands-on approach and experience. We also want to provide a space to share best practices, experiences, attitudes, worries and successes about using digital tools in youth work, to contribute to the ongoing discussion on what is and what should be DIGITAL YOUTH WORK. We want to focus on using digital media and tools in outdoor activities, to experience the great opportunities that these kind of tools may give to youth work nowadays. The training course has been funded by Erasmus + / Youth in Action programme through Transnational Cooperation Activities / TCA thanks to Italian and Cyprus national agencies.
