Community of practice

The European Youth Work Agenda (EYWA) is addressed to the youth work community of practice in Europe, i.e. people with a common interest who collaborate over an extended period, sharing ideas and strategies, determining solutions and building innovations. This incorporates all kinds of youth work and all kinds of youth workers. The Agenda aims to engage

  • youth workers and youth leaders,
  • youth work managers,
  • project carriers,
  • accredited and independent youth work organisations,
  • trainers,
  • researchers,
  • educators of youth workers,
  • local communities and municipalities,
  • National Agencies for Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps,
  • youth representations,
  • young people,
  • and policy-makers for youth at all levels of governance.

All stakeholders in the youth work community of practice across Europe have, within their respective sphere of competence, different mandates, roles and capacities for further developing youth work. They are welcome and encouraged to get involved in shaping the European Youth Work Agenda and putting it into practice in the Bonn Process to jointly strengthen the field of youth work – for the benefit of all young people in Europe.
