Changemakers Kit

Tool Description

Changemakers Kit is an online tool for the quality development of youth work. One of the key features of the tool is the good practices database.

The Changemakers Kit offers a lot of possibilities and can be used in many different ways. Depending on who you are (young person, youth worker or a politician), on where you are (in a rural area or a city) and on how youth work is provided (by NGOs or municipal staff) you might want to use this kit in different ways. It can be used:

  • As an agenda for the development of local youth work, discussing aims, means and methods;
  • As an advocacy tool for youth work, providing arguments for, and examples of good practices;
  • As a basis for planning a study visit or a common project within the Europe Goes Local community.

The Changemakers Kit follow s the structure of the European Charter on Local Youth Work and consists of five sections:

  1. The core principles
  2. Youth work policy
  3. Organisation and practice
  4. The youth worker
  5. Quality development

Each section starts with a short video-introduction, giving some background and context. You can also read the text if you prefer. Then follows the bullet points from the Charter.
