Tools & Good Practices

Activities Pack — useful tools for youth work and training activities with migrants, refugees and local communities

 

Here you can find tools to create activities for young migrants and refugees.

Created to help volunteers, social and youth workers, the Activities Pack will help you implement new educational methods in your daily work with young migrants as well as local communities.

Remember that tools alone have no influence. It is your task to adapt them to your objectives, context and target group, but most importantly to your own skills to turn them into something powerful!
