On 22nd and 23rd of October 2018 the partnership of the new project “SymfoS for Youth Care” met for the first time in the UK to agree on key elements of the project development. The project aims to improve the integration chances of disadvantaged young people (NEETS) in Europe by an innovative counselling method based on the approach of Symbol Work. Working with symbols offers young people an additional, universal language. Under the leadership of the german coordinator Sozialwerk Düren (DE) the partners Hafelekar (AT), University of Gloucestershire (UK), Asociación Caminos and Colegio ColpolsocA (both ES) and Associacao A3S and Instituto Politecnico Porto (both PT) are working in the following 3 years on the implementation of the methodology in the youth welfare system.
On the 27th of January 2019 the the partner consortium “SymfoS for Youth Care” met for the second time in Düren, Germany to discuss the progress and upcoming activities of the project development.
From the 28th of January to the 1st of february, a training was held in the town of Nideggen, Germany for youth workers to get familiar with the methodology of symbol work to disseminate it nationally later during the project.
From 21st to 25th of October the second transnational training will take place in the South of Spain in Granada. Each partner will send 3 participants to be trained as SymfoS for Youth Care Practitioners. After the event in Spain national implementation will take place in all countries.
