Youth work, through non-formal and informal learning, contributes to this movement by fostering active citizenship and social participation of young people. In this frame, youth work contribute to generic
prevention that targets all young people by equipping them with life competences, reinforcing their
resilience and strengthening democratic values.
Many studies show that young people can become radicalised for a multitude of reasons, such as a lack of integration into society, disengagement of social groups, ideological opposition and exposure to violent
extremist groups. Personal, cultural, economical and social context also affect this radicalisation process. With so many factor making young people vulnerable, we believe that vulnerability as such should be taken as a “serious matter” and not only as a symptom.
In modern society, vulnerability is generally seen as a weakness and an obstacle to succeed in social life.
This negative view also affect youth workers, their perceptions and ways of working. Although several
programs for youth workers are designed to train them to prevent radicalization among young people,
these generally under explore the potential of vulnerability as an approach to connect with youngsters that feel a strong disconnection and a lost sense of belonging with society.
This training course aims to support youth workers to develop their competences in understanding
vulnerability and exploring its potential in reinforcing young people self confidence. In this training course participants will experience a positive approach of vulnerability which is a key element in establishing true connections with young people. We will explore vulnerability through non-formal education and exper-
iential learning methods.
The objectives for this training course are:
