Hi-tech Youth Work was a 2 years strategic partnership in the field of youth (March 2017 – February 2019).
It created a field of sharing of competences and tools, validated by youth organizations based in 4 different countries (Italy, Malta, Moldova and Lithuania), in order to increase the abilities of the involved youth workers to act also as media educators, able to use social media and digital competences not only for the purpose of communication but also as part of the key content of youth work, even able to make inclusive the youth work.
It represented an answer to the need of constant updating of the youth workers to the new technologies, allowing a transnational exchange of competences and suggestions that can represent a point of reference for other youth workers and organizations. The cooperation among youth workers from different countries allowed to deepen the use of different ICT tools and methods that during the project was generalized and applied in the partner organizations, laying the foundations for an European shared inclusive and high quality youth work.
