Empowering Youth Workers to Reach Out Young Migrants and Refugees (REACH OUT)


Migration is a growing and permanent part of Europe’s future. There is a pressure for a more effective EU strategy to promote the economic, social, cultural, and political integration of migrants. Social workers and youth workers play an important role in helping migrants in overcoming problems they encounter in a new society and their integration.  However youth workers need additional tools and support in this endeavor. They need to understand their target group, their problems, needs and expectations.



The aim of the project is to develop and test an innovative training curriculum for youth workers to support them in reaching out to young migrants and refugees, and increase youth workers’ competences and foster their professional development.
