This Training course is the main activity of the Erasmus+ project: Improving Youth Work Towards Gender Equality.

This project’s main objectives are:

1. Recognising the subtle daily gender discrimination situations endured by youngsters, as a result of sexist cultural expressions and behaviors. We seek to have specific information and better understanding of the signs of gender abuse, discrimination and violence in their first stages, so that we can detect potential conflict circumstances and take action to avoid them.

2. Sharing resources and tools to address and contribute to eliminate sexism, gender violence and discrimination. We would like to learn specific and useful tools already used successfully by the involved entities, so that we can have practical resources at hand, to face such discriminatory or abusive situations and take direct and fair actions against them, if they happen in our daily work with youngsters.

3. Building a solid network of European entities determined to end up with gender discrimination and abuse, among young people. This project aims to allow the collaboration and design of future projects about Gender Issues, so that we can continue having a social improvement and impact, thanks to our actions and dissemination strategies.
