The Toolkit includes a set of innovative non-formal learning methods (exercises, simulations, group dynamics, contrasting cases, role-playing…), as well as supporting tools and materials for the implementation of these methods such as videos, slide presentations, images, graphics, charts, etc.

The Toolkit is available in five languages (English, German, Italian, Spanish and Romanian) as an Open Educational Resource at www.youthideasintoaction.eu . Therefore, accessible for free use and re-purposing by any interested party.

This Toolkit is the result of the 'Youth Ideas into Action' project. A project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and led by SPORTUNION TIROL (Austria) in cooperation with Nëus Jëuni Gherdëina (Italy), Plataforma Andaluza de Voluntariado (Spain) and Media Partners (Romania).

Between 1st and 4th September, Media Partners hosted, in Cluj-Napoca (Romania), the fourth and final meeting of the Youth Ideas into Action project. It was joined by representatives from SPORTUNION Tirol (Austria), Nëus Jëuni Gherdëina (Italy) and the Andalusian Platform of Volunteering (Spain). 




For this project, the partners aim at fostering the inclusion and employability of young people with fewer opportunities by providing them with social entrepreneurship opportunities. In order to do so, the three organisations from the youth sector (SPORTUNION Tirol, Nëus Jëuni Gherdëina and the Andalusian Platform of Volunteering) have joined forces with Media Partners, a training provider specialised in social entrepreneurship education for people from disadvantaged groups. Together, they have produced the first 'Toolkit for youth workers to provide non-formal social entrepreneurship education to young people with fewer opportunities' in Europe. The Toolkit includes a set of innovative non-formal learning methods as well as supporting tools and materials for the implementation of these methods.


During the meeting in Cluj-Napoca, Media Partners presented the final version of the Toolkit which includes the improvements agreed by all the project partners during the previous meeting in Granada (Spain). Each partner will now translate the toolkit from English into its national language. Therefore, by the end of the project the Toolkit will be available as an Open Educational Resource on the project website in five languages: English, German, Italian, Spanish and Romanian. 


Once the translated versions of the Toolkit are ready, the partners will organise dissemination events in their respective countries. The objective of these events will be to introduce youth workers across Europe to the use of the toolkit.
