“We young people had a feeling like we finally have a voice” Croatia, Girl, 18 years

From January to March 2015 we talked to 144 people in 9 European countries.
96 of them were young users of professional open youth work, 48 were students aiming to become youth workers.

We asked them about their experiences with and expectations of professional open youth work. Their answers will give us a deeper inside in the situation in the participating countries and serve as one of the basic documents for developing a common definition and shared principles for professional open youth work in Europe.
The partners will meet next week in Zagreb and we are very much looking forward to further analysing those discussions held in Austria, Croatia, Finland, Italy, Lithuania, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway and the United Kingdom.
