This digital knowledge repository aims to capture all the latest but also best practices, tools and methodologies to better enable youth work.
The ICT4YOUTHWORK project aims to better enable youth organizations, youth services and youth workers in reaching young people and delivering to them activities that will ensure responsiveness to the trends in society such as the latest progress in technologies and digital media.
The project’s effort will allow for these types of organizations to update and adapt their methods to the new technologies to improve outreach to youth. Thus, youth organizations will be better empowered to increase the quality of the youth sector in Europe by sharing know-how across sectors, generating and disseminating new knowledge on methods and practices for use of the latest digital tools and media in youth work.
ICT4YOUTHWORK is a project that is funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, Key Action 2: Strategic Partnerships.
