ComanityCall

Call for interest and participation

As the COMANITY project is coming to its end and because it was such a great and successful programme, we want to give it a legacy. That’s why we are launching this call for interest and participation.

  • What is it?

The COMANITY programme is a unique blended programme for youth workers and volunteers working with disadvantaged young people (NEETS, at-risk behaviours, substance misuse, offenders, mental health difficulties, socio-economic barriers and others), to enhance their competences in empowering young people in their community.

See the project’s Brochure here to have a summary of the project.

The COMANITY programme includes: a competence framework which defines the skills that community animateurs must develop to fulfil at best their role, a training programme to learn about those competences, a self-assessment tool to assess these competences, an online knowledge space, the “COMANITY HUB” and participatory action-research methodologies to implement and evaluate the programme.

  • What makes COMANITY different?

The programme is innovative at European level because it promotes a "community approach" to working with disadvantaged youth, by better understanding and connecting to the young person's lifeworld.

  • To whom?

The call addresses youth organisations mostly (professionals, youth workers, and volunteers) but it is also open to a wider range of stakeholders from social services, youth services, public authorities, other NGOs to companies with social mission.

  • How do you express your interest?

>>>Fill the following Google Form here and we will get back to you in a few weeks.

  • What do you commit to?

It’s up to you! Based on your expression of interest, we will later (December/January) forward you the Toolkit “Ten steps to develop a COMANITY programme” and you are free to use if you find it interesting.

 

COMANITY is a project funded under the EU’s ‘Erasmus+’ programme (2017-2019). Its main objective is to train youth workers and volunteers for a new role in youth work – the Community Animateur’.
