Research results – How to reach marginalised young people and fight against discrimination

As part of the Youth Work 2.0 Project, we have carried out extensive research that will help youth workers reach marginalised young people through different approaches to prevent discrimination and intolerance among young people with and without fewer opportunities. 

This E-book can be used to find and reach marginalised youths and to develop measures and actions to create common non-formal or informal situations for youth with and without fewer opportunities jointly to prevent discrimination and intolerance among them.

The target group of this book are youth organisations and youth workers. Youth leaders, youth supervisors, NGOs, adult education centres, VET and education authorities can all use it in order to reach marginalised young people/ children/ adults to develop activities that will decrease discrimination and intolerance among beneficiaries. 

The book analyses the current situation and provides new methods and approaches to prevent discrimination and intolerance among youth based on the current context, the organisation’s needs and youth’s needs. We have investigated the current scenario and written real solutions and methods that can be used in real life at European and international level. 

The book aims to help organisations and experts ensure that more marginalised youth with fewer opportunities are reached and that they can benefit from their youth work/ programmes/ projects. The study provides measures and actions that have helped prevent racism and increase tolerance between young people with and without fewer opportunities.

This book contains:
– existing methods used to reach marginalized youth and a strategy to reach them
– best innovative practices in preventing racism and intolerance among youth 
– non-formal education approaches that facilitate learning for youths with and without fewer opportunities jointly, approaches that are inclusive for youth with fewer opportunities and that ensure a positive experience of diversity by all participants within the group.
-specific needs in training youth workers and trainers on social inclusion and tolerance, and the necessary competences for organising, developing and leading educational activities for mixed groups of youth.
– accessible means/ methods of communication and distribution of information about the organisation’s programmes/ projects/ activities to reach marginalized youths
– key points of action and methods for the organisation to use so that youth workers can reach marginalised youths and fight against discrimination and intolerance among youth
– challenges and barriers faced by youth with fewer opportunities to multiply their developed skills and knowledge, to engage in active participation in society and encountered by trainers and participants in activities with youth with and without fewer opportunities jointly, in terms of attitudinal barriers and inclusive methodology
– methods to ensure non-discrimination principles, a quality standard regarding: planning and preparation, training design (group’s background, time management, number of participants with fewer opportunities, overcoming barriers, communication), trainer knowledge and attitudes, resources and methods
– recommendations to be used in non-formal activities to support participants with fewer opportunities in their role as multipliers, to become active members of society
