Date du début: 20 juin 2014, Date de fin: 20 nov. 2014 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The proposal of the course appeared as a need detected among youth workers and educators in youth organisations to address gender mainstreaming in the daily day youth work. Trough the training course "Boys don't Cry...? Mainstreaming Gender in Youth Work” Trajectorya and its partners want to contribute to raise awareness and provide specific educational tools to youth works to de-construct gender roles and stereotypes. The project wants to underline the transversality of gender mainstreaming addressing the way feminilties and mascultities roles are constructed and how affects society and youth work. For that the course is addressed to youth leaders, youth workers and educators to develop learning competences aimed at mainstreaming gender in youth work through Human Rights Education and Non-Formal Education methodologies. The specific objectives of the course are: - To explore how gender roles are constructed and “normality” established for masculinities and femininities in diverse communities around Europe; - To introduce Human Rights Education methodologies and implement approaches and activities that support the role of youth work in this area; - To contribute actively to de-construct sexist attitudes through youth work tools that challenge predetermined gender roles, - To exchange best practices, raise awareness and develop competences in key concepts for mainstreaming gender in youth work; - To develop ideas for incorporating gender perspectives in youth work and at community level, and to introduce and promote the qualitative development of the activities of the new programme for youth in the frames of the Erasmus+ programme. The course is designed for participants who already have some experience in youth work (youth leaders, trainers and youth educators) and want to develop their competences promoting gender mainstreaming through youth work. The partner organisations are from Estonia, Lithuania, Turkey, Spain, Italy, Armenia, Romania, Belarus and Georgia. This diversity should ensure a pan-European dimenssion and a major vision of different realities and practices in addressing gender mainstreaming in youth work. Partner organisations together with the organisers and the team of trainers will select the group of participants. They should be motivated to develop their youth work competences and to share these experiences within their field of work, being committed and engaged to act as multipliers in their communities by implementing local actions. The expected follow up includes the development of local activities using non formal education, fostering gender mainstreaming in youth work developed in participants communities; and in longer term - KA2 in the frames of the Erasmus+ for the encounter and exchange of best practices with youth organisations, universities, social enterprises and other relevant actors in the field.
