About project

Strategic partnership Youth Work HD, financed by the European Commision through Erasmus+ program,  gives an answer to the needs of youth workers that aren't covered at the moment in the countries involved in project (Croatia, Italy, Latvia and Lithuania), but also in most European countries. Partners involved in this project worked on solving many open European questions - from digital literacy, youth unemployment and digital innovation to standardization of youth work. We have recognized general skills and knowledges that could help to set standards among different types of youth workers in Europe.

The quality and success of youth work is highly dependent on its capability to meet and constructively relate not only to the needs of young people, but also to the knowledge and expectations of society in general, other actors in the youth field, and both professional and volunteer youth workers. We have recognized a set of ICT tools and skills that we find important in our daily work with young people (online safety, social networks for reaching out to young people, tools for online cooperation, online counselling, open educational resources etc.).

Recognizing the potential of digital technology (based on knowledge and expertise that our organisations have) we decided to develop an online platform that will serve for professional development of youth workers and assure them with basic knowledge and skills they need.

We believe this will set a common ground for youth workers in 21st century that would set a standard in terms of cooperation between organisations in the field of youth work and open it up to cross-sectoral cooperation.
