Members of the scientific personnel of “The Smile of the Child” as well as representatives of the organizations Apprentis d'Auteuil from France, Federazione SCS CNOS from Italy Christliches Jugenddorfwerk Deutschlands from Germany l’Heure Joyeuse in Morocco and partners from the research field, Ghent University in Belgium, University of Bedfordshire in England and the Observatory on the migration of minors (University of Poitiers) in France, took part in the meeting.
The meeting of the Community of Practices and Knowledge for Unaccompanied Minors in Europe aimed at further discussing and elaborating on the final format of the deliverables of the project and deciding on the promotion and dissemination strategy of the training tool, which will be based on the training seminars of the project.
The project’s duration is 24 months and aims at promoting and reinforcing the quality of work of youth workers who come in direct contact with unaccompanied minors on a daily basis. This will be achieved through the exchange of good practices, peer learning and implementation of new tailored-made educational solutions targeted to these minors. The project is co-funded by the European Programme ERASMUS+.
