11 Linking Youthpass to Digital Youth Work According to Youthpass (2022), Youthpass is a European recognition mechanism for determining and establishing learning outcomes that are collected in projects beneath the Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps programmes. • Youthpass encourages individual reflection and understanding about knowledge and helps to produce learning outcomes visible for the trainees themselves as well as for others. • It aspires to strengthen reflective practices in youth work and teamwork exercises, by that improving their quality and recognition. • It also reinforces the continued pathways of young people and youth workers, and • boosts the visibility of the significance of European engagement. Youthpass certificates are available for all sorts of projects and activities within the Erasmus+: Youth in Action and European Solidarity Corps programmes. The certificate can also be circulated for projects that were accepted under the prior Youth in Action programme (2007-2013). All participants of the projects authorised within these frameworks are permitted to acquire a Youthpass certificate for their non-formal learning outcomes. The accountability to administer the Youthpass certificates to the participants/volunteers, in case they hope to obtain them, lies with the organisation that signs the agreement for the Erasmus+ grant (Youthpass, 2022). The new Youthpass certificates for 2021-2027 use the European Training Strategy (ETS) competence model for youth workers to work internationally as the reference framework for the self-assessment of participants in training exercises (youth workers and other youth work practitioners), as well as group members. Youthpass (2022) reports that ETS Competence Model depicts competence as an assortment of perspectives, understanding, aptitudes, and behaviours. For instance, one of these competencies is ‘managing resources.’ This implies comprehending the values and working culture of youth projects and youth organisations. The youth worker determines leadership styles and evaluates the influence they have on the target groups during an exercise. They comprehend what encourages young people to participate in projects, how to cultivate this motivation, and oversee risks accordingly. This competence also contains an understanding of national legislation, data guidelines, and financial resources administration, with special attention to the number of resources required to design and prepare to provide exercises for digital youth work.
