Training Programme for Youth Workers
The work of the Estonian LGBT Association with youth workers since 2011 has shown a lack of awareness and skills among youth workers in including and supporting LGBT youth. Youth workers have few skills to successfully deal with homo- and transphobic bullying.
The aim of this project is to work towards a safe and supportive environment for LGBT youth, to reduce discrimination and inequality stemming from negative attitudes. The main target group of the project: youth workers at youth centres; greatest beneficiaries: the youth visiting the centres.
Main activities: carrying out trainings for youth workers, creating a guide for making the environment of youth centres more inclusive, piloting the guide in five centres. In addition, the curriculum of Youth Work at the Tallinn University Pedagogical College will be analysed and changes suggested to ensure better preparation of future youth workers.
