The project “Prevent Youth Radicalisation” is funded under the Erasmus+ Program for Strategic Partnerships with project number 2019-1-AT01-KA202-051182.
The objective of this Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership is to identify and document evidence-based approaches, initiatives, programs and methods. The main concern of this project is to provide the various stakeholders with appropriate concepts and a set of tools, specifically tailored to their needs when working with young people at risk. The partnership will:
- Provide vocational teachers and counsellors with best practice examples about effective tools and suitable methods, in order to help them do their work better;
- Make youth and vocational counselling services more attractive and will contribute to deradicalisation;
- Counteract the negative effects of alienation that occurs frequently to adolescents and which often prepares the path to join groups with extreme ideologies;
- Encourage young people to think critically about extremist messages.
In order to reach this objective, the project partners will:
- Implement an e-platform with an interactive Database, searchable after various parameters, that describes and gives access to initiatives, tools and methods and other materials that have been identified and collected in the course of the project, concerning awareness raising, training activities and didactic tools combating radicalization that can be used by vocational teachers, trainers and counselors;
- Elaborate a Catalog “Prevention of Youth Radicalization in Practice” which will give an overview about the current situation of the specific project environment in the partners’ countries, i.e. provide effective support to help vulnerable young people and to prevent them from being drawn into terrorist organisations and movements. It will be enriched with the outcomes of the four transnational meetings in each partner country where experts from the respective national and local vocational counselling organisations will discuss these issues with the representatives of our strategic partnership;
- Organize an online interactive Forum for exchange of experience and good practice that will promote networking and exchange activities not only among the partnership and VET13 organisations in their countries, but also on a European level. With new translation services, it will become possible to break down language barriers between users from different countries, and to foster exchange and assist initiatives that contribute to the European society as a whole;
- Disseminate the project on social media platforms like Facebook and twitter.
The partnership consists of four European companies, initiatives and institutes that have been selected for this project, based on the needs and on matching of abilities, that were identified as crucial for the successful implantation of the project and for the delivery of high-quality outcomes.
