Project description

Our project is to organize a Training Course in France that will involve 30 youth workers and young
people from 10 EU countries in order to learn, discuss & share practices on the topic of rural
development through European youth. This project will be an opportunity for the youth workers
to work extensively on issues of rural development, youth unemployment & community
development. It seeks to get the participants’ contribution on how youth workers can help resolve
unemployment issues among youth in European rural areas, reduce surging brain drain
percentages in rural areas as well as contribute positively to community building and
development of rural & isolated areas.
Through workshops & local visits in France to rural areas and innovative entrepreneurial ventures
led by young people or youth workers, we believe that a TC that unites a consortium of EU Youth
Workers working on rurality issues with young people will permit a well-constructed & productive
project where sessions to develop tools will be enriched by various experiences and ideas on how
to train young people from rural areas to contribute to the development of their community
through various ventures.
The main objectives of this project are to:
1- Equip 30 youth workers with adequate nonformal education methods & tools that will
make them catalysts of change in the development of EU rural areas
2- Reduce youth unemployment in European rural areas through youth participation & rural
3- Empower participating youth to participate in community building through different
actions & campaigns.
4- Create a toolkit and a video that will contain tools and methods that will help youth
workers engage & empower their youth.
European youth to develop their rural areas through entrepreneurial ventures and various
engaging activities based on the ERASMUS+ Programme guidelines, our TC will help:
improve competences, linked to youth workers professional profiles (equip the youth
workers with new working tools & share practices that will help their work)
permit a broader understanding of practices, policies and systems in education, training
or youth work across countries; (understanding the socio-political realities of rurality in
EU, the question of rural brain drains, depopulation and the role of youth workers)
