Reaching ALL young people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic (repeated)

Getting crisis-savvy
Wednesday, 9 December 2020  •  03:45 PM  •  Workshop room 32

The COVID-19 pandemic impacts on the different approaches, methods and measures in youth work at local and regional level. The crisis seems to seriously interfere with the ambition to reach out to ALL young people, in particular marginalised and socially excluded groups. It will be discussed what COVID-19 means in practice particularly for young people in vulnerable situations, how youth work can address these young people and which methods and approaches are appropiate.
