Abstract: 

“Creating a framework and developing contents for tomorrow’s youth centres” consists of equipping youth centres and youth organisations which are partners in the consortium with a series of competences and skills for young people and youth workers as well as working methods and tools adapted to the needs of the future.

The purpose of the project is to create a framework and to develop contents for tomorrow’s youth centres- in the EU, involving 4 youth organisations, one university and one public authority, over the period of thirty months. The objectives of the project are:

1. Developing  and testing a set of tools for youth work (based on the criteria of the European Council Quality Label) in the four youth centres of the consortium over the period of two years and a half.

2. Creating and testing needs-adapted contents focused on career planning and youth inclusion in the four youth centres of the consortium, over the period of two years and a half.

3. Developing a platform for the use of young people in Timisoara and interested in Timisoara (covering events, trainings, youth exchanges, etc.), over the period of two years and a half.

The project envisages both local (Timisoara City Hall(FITT) and transnational cooperation (Roter Baum- DE RIS-SL, Nuorisokeskus -FL and Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona-SP ) with the purpose of using a broad spectrum of experiences and qualifications (from different partners). The project has to be carried out at a transnational level, because it will pilot youth centres equipped for the needs of tomorrow's society. The pilot youth centres will become an example of good practice for youth centres elsewhere and the intellectual outputs, multiplier events and trainings foreseen in the project will reinforce its transnational dimension.
