A plan or proposal; a scheme. To throw forward. Every project includes

includes the team leader, experts (internal or external) and administrators (for the office management, accounting etc.). Youth project teams are usually including both young people and youth workers.

priorities and on the allocation of the resources of the youth activities of the Youth sector.



: Youth trainers :

Youth trainers are people who train others to work with young people, using non-formal methods, focusing on personal and social development and with an emphasis on fostering intercultural competence.



: Youth workers :

Youth workers are people who work with young people in a wide variety of non-formal and informal contexts, typically focusing on personal and social development through one-to-one relationships and in group-based activities. Being learning facilitators may be their main task, but it is at least as likely that youth workers take a social pedagogic or directly social work based approach. In many cases, these roles and functions are combined with each other.


: Qualification :

Qualification can also simply be a synonym for a certificate or diploma. In the world of formal education and training in Europe it is usually an official record or document testifying to the fact that a person has successfully completed a given course or reached a given standard of achievement for a specified field, skill or competence.



: Skill :

Skill means having the knowledge and experience needed to perform a
specific task or job someone who has learned what to do (possesses the knowledge) and how to do it (can transfer the knowledge into real practice), which also means that someone else can observe the skill in action.


: Validation :

The overall aim of validation is to make visible and value the full range of qualifications and competences held by an individual, irrespective of where these have been acquired. The purpose of this validation may be formative (supporting an ongoing learning process) as well as summative (aiming at certification).
