Training and events for youth work services

We develop activities in youth work and provide further education for professionals. We organise in-service training and various events for people who work with adolescents. At these training sessions, we describe current phenomena in youth work and distribute recent information concerning the field. Organising this training is one of our statutory duties.

Each year, we organise a regional youth work seminar in the domain of each Regional State Administrative Agency. The youth work seminars are an excellent opportunity for networking with colleagues in your region, for updating your competence and to learn about current trends. We also organise regional day workshops and day seminars for outreach youth work.

We organise training sessions and events jointly with centres of excellence in youth work and with other organisations involved in youth work.
