“Young Migrant Voices”

Deadline: 30 September 2016
Open to: youth workers, project managers, youth policy makers, municipality youth workers from Austria, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Macedonia, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, Turkey
Venue: 15-21 November 2016, Odiliapeel, Netherlands


The training will be a space for development of competences, dialogue and sharing of experiences among 26 youth workers, local authorities/municipal officers responsible for youth and youth leaders working with young migrants and youth with migrant background.

Named and shamed throughout political debates and electoral campaigns, the millions of immigrants living all over Europe are completely excluded from the political discourse, hearing themselves called in the news but without any open avenues to respond and express their opinion, becoming the mere subject of the conversation, not the participants. Similarly, young people are excluded from social and civic life and the recent terrorist attacks reminded us of the grave risks of disengagement and marginalisation of youth as the way it reacts can dangerously reach up to violent radicalisation. Overall, the 2015 EU Youth Report highlights young people with migrant background as 1 the 2 groups most at risk of poverty and social exclusion, making them the most voiceless category of all.

A 6-day training course for 26 youth workers, municipality officers and young leaders with migrant background to see together how local institutions can better respond to the need of young migrants and concretely encourage their participation.Eligibility
