Erasmus+ Mobility of Youth Workers
Dates: 03 - 12 October 2022
In one sentence, the goal of Lead up! is to improve peer-to-peer learning in youth mobilities by enhancing the involvement of group leaders in the activities.
In the past two years, Kora and its partners have been involved in a large number of youth mobilities. Even though each project has its own lifecycle, a common pattern started to appear, when comparing outcomes and experiences from different projects: the involvement of group leaders during the different phases of a youth mobility is much related to the quality of its outcomes. The group leaders are often not involved properly in the preparatory phases, and, in practice, too often the person in charge of most of the activities is a facilitator. This dynamic undermines the strengths of peer-to-peer learning and non-formal education, and can lead to situations where participants feel like a teacher-pupil relationship. Through previous partnerships, organisations realised once again that the youth leader plays a key role in the different phases of a youth mobility. That is why Lead up! wants to put the youth leaders on the spotlight: they should be the center and the focus of a real non-formal education experience. The peer-to-peer learning process needs experienced youth leaders that can facilitate the inclusion and the active participation of young people.
