Information providers

There are no top-level efforts available to young people to know about youth work and opportunities for participation.

However, at the local level, municipal youth schools have their own websites with information on after-school activities, opening hours, etc. Many youth schools are active on social media, for instance, Facebook and Instagram, where they promote upcoming activities and share pictures from daily activities or the output of the activities.


Key initiatives

There are no top-level key initiatives to raise public awareness about the value of youth work.

However, the Danish National Agency for Erasmus+ hosts an annual event with examples of best practices from all sectors, including Erasmus+ Youth. As part of the event, articles or video materials are produced for dissemination among stakeholders, including young people and youth work providers.

The national agency also administers a website called seize the world (Gribverden). The website provides information on going abroad either as a student or a volunteer. Young people can read interviews of young people who have already been abroad, what they have learned and which competencies they have strengthened. The website also contains basic information on legal regulations such as tax, insurance, etc.
