Making the most of your learning

YouthPass definition:
Youthpass was developed to improve the recognition and validation of non-formal learning in the Youth in Action programme. It is a way to describe what you have done and to show what you have learnt.
What is youth work?
- youth work is mainly about encouraging the active
involvement of young people in society
- it is an
open space for learning
- a form of social

Examples of Youth Work:
- informal meetings in caffes/street
- youth exchanges
- after-schools clubs
- sport clubs etc

What is and what is not YouthPass:

- a confirmation of participation by the organisers of a
specific activity
- a tool which puts the Key competences for Lifelong
Learning into practice
- firmly based on principles of non-formal education and
- an individualised description of: activities undertaken and learning outcomes etc.
Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship.
You have learn: to turn ideas into actions, to be creative and
innovative, to take risks, to plan and manage projects, to be
aware of different working contexts and be able to optimally
use given opportunities for one’s development. To be aware
of ethical values.

“We cannot become what we need to be by remaining
what we are”
- something which gives any rights to the holder
- a formal accreditation of competences
- a replacement for any formal qualifications
My EVS and the YouthPass
Develop and asses your key competences:
1. Communication in the mother tongue:

2. Communication in foreign languages
3. Mathematical competence and basic
competences in science and technology
4. Digital competence
5. Learning to learn
6. Social and civic competences
7. Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship
8. Cultural awareness and expression
1. Communication in the mother tongue
Competence includes the skills to write and read different
types of texts, search, collect and process information,
use aids, formulate and express our own arguments in a
convincing and appropriate way.
Youthpass –
more than a certificate
of participation
Possible effects of YouthPass:
- better links with the
formal education sector
- increased recognition of
(international)youth work
- influence on national
systems of recognition
- easier entry into
the labour market for
- more support for nonformal
2. Communication in foreign languages
We should be able to understand spoken messages and to
initiate, sustain and conclude conversations. Reading and
understanding of texts according to our needs is important,
as well as the skills to use aids and learn languages
informally as part of lifelong learning.
3. Mathematical competence and basic
competences in science and technology
Scientific competence refers to our ability and willingness
to use the knowledge and methodology employed to
explain the natural world. This is essential in order to
identify questions and to draw evidence-based conclusions.
Competence in technology is viewed as the application of
that knowledge and methodology in response to perceived
human wants or needs. Both areas of this competence
involve an understanding of the changes caused by human
activity and responsibility as an individual citizen.
4. Digital competence
Digital competence involves the confident and critical
use of Information Society Technology (IST) for work, leisure
and communication. It is underpinned by basic skills:
the use of computers to retrieve, assess, store, produce,
present and exchange information, and to communicate and
participate in collaborative networks via the Internet.
5. Learning to learn
‘Learning to learn’ is the ability to organise our
own learning. It includes effective management of time
and information, both for ourselves and in groups.
6. Social and civic competences
These competences might be the most important ones
for the youth field. Many of them can be acquired by active
engagement in any kind of youth work or volunteering. They
cover all forms of behaviour we might need to participate
effectively in our social and working lives.
7. Sense of initiative and entrepreneurship
An entrepreneurial and creative attitude is characterised by
initiative, pro-activity, independence and innovation in one’s
personal and social life, as much as at work. It also includes
motivation and determination to meet objectives.
8. Cultural awareness and expression
Appreciation of the importance of the creative
expression of ideas, experiences and emotions through a
range of media, including music, performing arts, literature,
and the visual arts.
