Earlier this year methodological manual for staff working with at-risk children and youth was translated in Lithuanian and is now available online for the Lithuanian audience.
Child and youth care specialists in Latvia and Lithuania (sports trainers, social workers, social educators, psychologists, youth workers, etc.), who work with at-risk children and youth on a day-to-day basis, deal with the lack of approaches and tools to provide qualitative support to the learning process of children and young people. Latgale Planning Region has developed methodology and guidelines on how to work with this specific target group and better motivate and involve them in the sports activities.
Methodological material is intended for any child and youth care professional who wants to carry out support work with at-risk children and young people by promoting social inclusion of the target group, using sport as a support tool. This handbook describes the characteristics of at-risk children and youth in the Latgale Planning Region (Latvia) and Utena County (Lithuania). It also describes the role, functions, and tasks of youth professionals, as well as the aspects they need to consider when using sport as a support tool for working with at-risk children and youth. The methodological material summarizes and includes non-formal education methods for working with the project’s target group.
Methodological material is one of the main outputs of the project LLI-402 “risk-free” and it will ensure continuity of the developed social inclusion model through sports with a special focus on at-risk children and youth in remote rural and cross-border areas.
The methodological manual is available here: METODINĖ MEDŽIAGA-VADOVĖLIS DIRBTI SU RIZIKOS GRUPĖS VAIKAIS IR JAUNUOLIAIS
