ICT4YOUTHWORK
ICT4YOUTHWORK

The ICT4YOUTHWORK was launched in June of 2017 and is a 2- year Erasmus+ funded Project. ICT4YOUTHWORK stands for ICT for fostering quality improvements in youth work. It aims to address the needs of youth organizations, youth services and youth workers to better reach young people and to deliver activities that ensure responsiveness to the trends in society such as new technology and tools in today’s digital era.

ICT4YOUTHWORK will be carried out by a multi-disciplinary, complimentary partnership consisting of four institutions from four EU countries: Sweden, Greece, Portugal and Romania. The project partnership is led by Stockholm University (SU) through eGovlab (Department of Computer and Systems Sciences DSV) who acts as coordinator for the partners: Government To You aisbl (Gov2u), Sociedade Portuguesa de Inovação - Consultadoria Empresarial e Fomento da Inovação, S.A. (SPI).

The ICT4YOUTHWORK project sets to:

  • map, analyze and report on good practices in online youth work that can be
  • transferred and adopted across youth work from Sweden, Greece, Portugal and Romania as well as throughout Europe;
  • enhance the uptake of ICT, digital and social media in the practices of organizations engaging in youth work;
  • improve the access to existing knowledge, experience and know-how on best practices, tools and methodologies for youth work in the digital age;
  • and promote effective digital communication amongst youth workers and young people

More specifically the project will assist youth organisations to:

  • use digital tools to promote and add value to existing youth work
  • weave the digital tools into youth work activities
  • make the most of the technology for youth work goals
