What we all see as numbers and statistics every day on television, arrives on the „doorstep“ of professional open youth work – be it centre based or detached – as people, young people.
We wanted to know how does the field cope with the inclusion of this target group of newly arrived young refugees in Europe. We bring perspectives from Austria, Croatia, Germany and Sweden and contributions from the Council of Europe and the Erasmus+ Youth Sector for this main topic of LOGBOOK Issue 2.
Furthermore we will present the current reality of professional open youth work in different European Countries – this time the spot is on Austria, Malta and Norway.
We also look closer at the concept of youth coaching in South Tyrol and present to you „My Future“. And we listen to Elžbieta and Egidijus, a young person and a youth worker from Lithuania who give us an insight in their relationship.
The questions how to become a detached youth worker in The Netherlands and if we can bridge the gap between research and practice in youth work round up this second edition of our magazine on professional open youth work.
Enjoy the browsing of LOGBOOK and join us in the discussion!
