The informal discussions with our partners showed that both youth workers and young people with fewer opportunities with whom they work do not have the necessary skills to manage conflict. Stereotypes, prejudices in the community and discrimination against young people with fewer opportunities lead to a specific psycho-emotional impact on these young people. As a result, they have an increased sensitivity to criticism and have defense reactions or exaggerated counter-attacks which makes it difficult to relate to other community members and youth workers. Thus, they risk losing different chances and opportunities for work and for independent living. Youth workers need to have the necessary skills to relate with these young people and to manage the conflicting situations that come from this context and their psycho-emotional specificity. The aim is to make youth activities more effective for the personal development of young people and to facilitate their social and professional insertion. Our project responds to the needs of youth workers, proposing it as its goal to increase the level of competences of youth workers in conflict management for the inclusion of Young people with fewer opportunities.
The aim of the project is to develop the skills of youth workers in conflict management to include young people with fewer opportunities. Project activities have been designed to deliver on its goals. Thus, they are structured into workshops, focusing on the main themes that respond to the learning needs of the participants:
- Developing the level of knowledge and skills in the field of inclusion and professional integration
- Developing the level of knowledge in the field of conflict management
- Developing the level of skills of the participants to plan strategies to include young people with fewer opportunities, using non-violent communication methods
