The RIDE project is a two year Erasmus+ project, co-funded by the European Commission.
RIDE stands for “Resources for Inclusion, Diversity and Equality”: the project will in fact collect and develop a comprehensive Toolbox with a set of fresh, innovative resources and practical tools supporting inclusive, diverse and equal youth work practice.
The EU has developed a clear mandate to encourage social inclusion (e.g. in the EU Youth strategy and the Erasmus+ Inclusion and Diversity Strategy).
Equality of opportunity, inclusion and diversity are also seen as key principles for youth workers in the partner countries (as, for example, in the UK’s National Occupational Standards for Youth that promote inclusion and value diversity).
Educators, trainers and practitioners need to continue exploring effective ways to develop and enhance their knowledge, skills and experience in order to meet the challenges that such a drive for inclusion, diversity and equality involves.
Establish a network of partners who share a common vision to understand and develop quality youth work practice with inclusion, diversity and equality of opportunity as core principles guiding practice
Create a community of practice to share understanding, challenges and best practice of inclusion, diversity and equality of opportunity
The toolbox is a set of resources that includes:
1) Principles and Approaches;
2) Good practice examples across partner countries;
3) Specific resources for youth work practitioners to use;
4) A university education module to be used with youth practitioners and training outlines that can be used by training providers.
