Outreaching youth work

Short Study Visit in the Netherlands

Our organisation is a non-profit organisation called “ Palet Culemborg” and knows different disciplines. (

  • Youth work
  • Community work

Our work area is Culemborg.

The department of youth work would like to invite you for a Short Study Visit in Culemborg 9-10 till 16-10 2004. The theme of this week will be “outreaching youth work”

How to involve (social disadvantaged) youth in all sorts of activities: cultural ,political, social, school, work etc.
We think it’s very important that youth participate in there own way, on there own level. There for our youth workers go to places were young people hang around and try to activate them. An important part of the study visit will be for the participants participating in our outreaching projects.

During the SSV we will visit all sorts of (umbrella) organisations who work with the youngsters. They will give us information how they work with the youngsters. We are invited to the city hall where the alderman will tell us about their policy according youth.

We will visit an academic school for social work and participate in their lessons. And above all, you will meet a lot of youngsters who like to know you and want to know how you work with youngsters. Different youth groups will show you all kind of things, and invite you to participate. Of course there will be time for fun things, like visiting a (tourist) city or window-shopping. So we hope to see you in October 2004 in Culemborg and of course we will give you a warm welcome.

With the best regards also from Jeanne van Asseldonk (general Director),

Meetings for creative support

Hosting organisation: Foundation for Social and Economic Initiatives

Place: Warsaw

Dates: 7 – 12 February, 2005

Foundation for Social and Economic Initiatives is a non-governmental organisation, founded in 1990.Its mission is to support local development of civil society, both in Poland and abroad. FISE’s aims include: professional activation of disadvantaged youth, working to support underdeveloped regions, especially rural areas and small towns, promoting and supporting social, economic and cultural initiatives, work to support European integration, and the development of contacts and co-operation between societies, support to self-government, public institutions, non-governmental organisations and private sector work to support the development of local communities, work to support the development of entrepreneurship.

Aim: to improve the activities of NGOs engaged in youth issues by exchanging experience, to make new contacts, find partners for projects and to practicaly implement the knowledge gained during the visit by creating a ‘Virtual Project’ and other such projects. The project will also focus on breaking down stereotypes linked to the countries of central and eastern Europe, and to deepen understanding of other cultures, as well as providing examples of Polish organisations which encourage young people to be creative.

Methodology: study visit will take the form of lectures, discussions, consultations with experts, practical training, visits to various organisations and institutions. The programme of the visit involves gaining both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in informal education. The subjects covered by the visit programme have been consulted with experts in youth issues. We have tried to highlight those questions that cause the greatest challenge to NGOs dealing with young people.

The programme will involve people from different cultures. Interactive practical, theoretical and cultural trips will break the ice between participants, and help to breakdown preconceptions related to prejudice and racism. Our awareness of the cultural gap between the foreign participants has led us to plan a project to make the differences a diversity to be proud of instead of a problem.
