Information providers

The network of Local Youth Councils and Local Youth Offices offer information about youth work opportunities for young people in their local communities and beyond.

In addition, and bearing in mind that most of the training is organized by civil society organizations (mainly youth organizations), usually they are the main information provider. The means of information dissemination is diverse and can include websites, mailing lists, social media but also different physical places like the premises themselves, or their various info stands.

National Association of Youth Work Practitioners - NAPOR, as being the most influential organisation in the field of professionalisation of youth work, disseminate information on its website as well as through different campaigns to raise awareness about youth work.

The Foundation Tempus offers information about youth work opportunities within the Erasmus+ programme on its website, social media and mailing lists.

Key initiatives

At the beginning of 2018, NAPOR conducted a campaign on the importance of youth work with the aim of recognizing youth work as a factor in the development of social change. The campaign was implemented at the national level and included 40 interviews with beneficiaries of youth work programmes and youth workers. The publication was made within the project "Youth work outside the framework" which is implemented by NAPOR with the financial support of the Ministry of Youth and Sports (the former ministry in charge of youth).
