Most recent projects

SHAKE THE BOX - ALTERNATIVE WAYS OF PARTICIPATION

At Youth Express Network, we believe that vulnerable youth has a lot of potential. Through our 2019 Work Plan, we wanted to bring together different layers of society, in order for them to claim and prove together that vulnerable youth’s participation is real, effective and promising. 26 youth organisations joined us on this project. In order to promote and encourage youth participation, each of them created a local delegation composed of: 1 youth/social worker in charge of coordinating/supporting the process, 2-3 young people from vulnerable groups willing to have an impact on their community, and 1 stakeholder willing to actively join and support them.

DIGITALISE IT - DIGITAL STORYTELLING FOR YOUTH WORK

2019 was the last phase of our 2-year strategic partnership. This capacity building project aimed at experimenting, sharing and confronting practices on innovative and creative digital methods and tools to foster empowerment and social inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities. It was supported by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and the Region Grand Est.

EU4YOU - ENTREPRENEURSHIP FOR YOUTH

2019 also marked the final stage of this 2-year strategic partnership. The aim of this capacity building project was to develop innovative complementary pathways for boosting employability of young people through social youth entrepreneurship and providing them with tools for cultural entrepreneurship in particular. It was supported by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.
