APY Releases a Training Module on Inclusive Youth Work
While celebrating the milestone of surpassing the distribution of the 20.000th package through its humanitarian projects, the Armenian Progressive Youth NGO released the Training Module “Inclusion Now!” – an exploration of the interactive and experiential methods and tools focusing on youth inclusion, equity, and diversity in youth work. The module aims to provide strategies and recommendations to help young professionals to create a more inclusive and diverse environment in their work with young people. It also provides solutions and suggestions on how to advocate and begin action planning to promote inclusion in youth communities.
The Module has been tested and further improved based on the feedback of about 30 youth workers, youth educators, and youth trainers from Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine, who participated in an intensive online training course entirely based on this module. If you want to train the members of your organization to advance the level of engagement of disadvantaged young people in the activities of your organization then this Module might be the ultimate solution for you. It is designed for the delivery of a training workshop for youth workers, youth educators, and youth trainers who are ready to work on the topics of diversity, inclusion, and anti-discrimination in order to activate the potential of diversity in training and work with young people.
The Module is also designed to be flexible in its use so it can be tailored to suit the specific country circumstances: depending on the needs of the participants. Youth workers, youth educators, youth trainers, and facilitators can also use the Module as a Handbook or Manual in their work with young people. The Module can be used as a quick reference tool or as background material for training workshops. It can serve as a toolkit for both online and offline training courses on youth inclusion and diversity.

“In today’s world, where isolation, social distancing, and quarantine are some of the most used words, the importance of inclusion reaches a higher level. Ultimately, today the need for such a
Training Module is more important than ever," said Anna Tovmasyan, the Vice-President of the Armenian Progressive Youth NGO. Smart, sustainable, and inclusive growth will not be possible if the potential of disadvantaged young people remains unlocked. Thus, this Training Module incapacitates young professionals working with youth and provides youth organizations with quality educational materials and practices to foster youth inclusion in their communities.
