The Parenting4Youth project ended on February 28, 2022, after a 6 month extension in the context of the pandemic


The Parenting Awareness for Young People (PAFYP) was an Erasmus+ KA2 project in favor of cooperation for innovation and exhange of good practices carried out by 6 organisations – BUCOVINA, from Romania, IRIS, from Poland, OPENEUROPE, from Spain, European Development Foundation, from Bulgaria, and Kilcooley Womens Centre from Norther Irland, United Kingdom – under the coordination of PADM, from the UK. It aimed at addressing this issue form a transversal perspective by including different types of organisations with different expertise and scopes of action.

Partners developed a Best practice training resource (BPTR), in establishing synergies between partners from different cultural backgrounds, working in different fields of education, training and youth. The BPTR is useful for those working in Higher Education, Youth Work, School Education and in a health and youth related setting. This resource include a comprehensive evaluation of the different practices exchanged and exploited during the lifetime of the project. To this end, organised international workshops was held at each country where partners have learnt new strategies and techniques to use upon return with young people in their regular activities.



Through PAFYP, partners want to exchange best practices and to develop:

  • Common understanding of positive parenting
  • Attachment theory
  • Positive practices and simulations in parenting awareness                                     
  • To up-skill those working with young people in order to address the Europe 2020 agenda regarding poverty and social exclusion in terms of addressing early school leaving and improvement of academic attainment in young people
