Disability Youth Worker
new digital competences at work!
The Disability Youth Worker (DYW) project, born from the experience in the sector of Borderland  without barriers (Poland), Tu First Onlus (Italy) e Inercia Digital  (Spain) allowed 50 people from 3 EU countries to confront on the themes  of digitalisation and its importance in the 21st century and to  reinforce their competences in the field allowing them to better  understand how to create, manage and edit their digital image in the  different digital platform, increasing their employability and making  them more self-confident.

The project was directed to:
  • Young  people with disability and/or disadvantaged condition. DYW gave them  the opportunity to improve their competences and skills providing them  with the right tools to face today's world, be more self-confidence and  be more active and responsible citizens in their communities.
  • Youth workers supporting this target group. DYW provided them with  improved knowledge, skills and competences making them more able to  support these young people by providing them with the skills necessary  to face in a better way not only their own present and future but also  the one of their families and communities.
Here is an example of what our participants produced

DYW  combined digitalisation, professional training in innovative contexts,  entrepreneuship, employability and coaching creating a flexible pathway  which can answer the needs of today's young people. The project, during  its two years duration, was able to adapt promptly to today's new  condition, creating an online course: Digital Enterprise allowed the  young participants to be trained and to interact with a tutor and other  peers from other EU countries, keeping high, even at distance the  intercultural spirit. The 32 hours course helped the participants  develop and improve their digital competences and obtain an official EU  certificate (Youthpass).
