The above-mentioned topics are explored by sharing a field-tested practice of working with Hungarian youth living in foster care and in segregated minority communities run since 2011. This method is called: From Us to You (FUY/FUYI - but we like to pronounce it FUJI).
Aims and objectives of the course
The course aims to introduce the framework of the From Us to You program. By doing so we also would like to share what we have found useful in our work in supporting disadvantaged youth.
Besides our learnings, we also share the resources and approaches we have learned from within or outside of the field of youth work. More concretely, you will have a short glimpse into:
- Experiential education
- Solution focused approach
- Trauma informed approach.
Timeline and framework of the course
The modules of the course are self-paced, so you can go through them in a more intense manner, or stretch them out in time. Nevertheless it is best to fit your progress in the course to the pace of the FUYI process your are implementing with your own group of disadvantaged youngsters (Youth+ group). You can use it as a source of inspiration if you are new to the field.
If you are already active in the field of youth and volunteering, we recommend you to take your time and try to implement what's useful from this course in your work. The additional materials provide you with a chance to dive deeper into the three above-mentioned approaches that might help gain a deeper understanding and help you adapt the learnings from this course to your work.
The course was designed for youth workers, teachers, and facilitators who are working with or plan to work with disadvantaged youth.
If you are supporting ESC volunteers or groups we think this course might be a good source of inspiration for you.
At present this course is open to Youth workers involved in the Youth+ KA2 project only! If you are interested in the course or the topic please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We really hope that you find this learning journey useful.
