Launch of the "Youth work's role in preventing violent extremism of youth" workplan


This work plan is a European approach to youth work in the prevention of processes of violent radicalisation of youth leading to extremist violence, with a special focus on youth work principles, sharing of practices and communication of the role of youth work in these prevention processes. Troughout the year 2017, the various projects and activites making up this work plan will lead to new tools and synergies that can offer lasting support to young people and youth workers at national and regional levels. Below you can read about the three pillars supporintg the implementation of this work plan.

The ultimate goal of the implementation of this work plan is to ensure that the services that are provided for and with young people are as good as they can be, and that these services continue to meet the changing needs of young people in developing the skills and qualities they require, so that they can grow up to live happy and fulfilling lives.

The plan, supported by the Council of Europe through a European Youth Foundation​ grant, will be finalised at the end of 2017 and will include an international training, a European youth work policy woking group and an online communication campaign.

The program is addressed manly to young youth workers, aged between 18 and 30, residing in one of the 47 European Council Member States.
