From September 2014 to March 2015, the Institute for Youth Development KULT is organising a training course for Youth Workers (Associate Expert for Youth Work). Youth Workers are persons who assist youth in the process of their growth and development, by working with them in youth centres and clubs, youth organisations, but also in government institutions such as social work centres. In 2014 the Institute advocated the recognition of the youth worker profession, resulting in a decision by the Agency for Statistics to recognise it in the Classification of Occupations under the number 3412. This is an important step in standardising youth work and represents a form of social acknowledgment not only of youth work a profession, but of non-formal education as a type of professional training. In addition, future Youth Workers will have an opportunity to develop a business plan for supporting centres/clubs or organisations with up to 6000 BAM. More information is stated in the application form and on the infographics below.
