The opportunity to live and work overseas is an chance to experience a completely different way of life. As returned development workers and volunteers, there is the potential to use these overseas experiences to continue your own learning as well as raise awareness and take informed actions from home. Through your work and experiences
abroad, you will have developed a unique perspective on the effects and causes of global poverty and social injustice that many others may not have. However, your participation in development and global issues does not have to be limited to an overseas experience; rather there is the opportunity for this experience to be a stimulus and a resource
for further learning. This toolkit intends to deepen your understanding of the complexities of some of the issues experienced while overseas and to integrate this learning into your life at home. This can be translated into the decisions and choices you make as an individual, as well as getting involved in collective actions, education and campaigns with other people.

Jabbertalk” is an international collection of methods one can immediately use in youth work. It is created out of the partnerships inside the Don Bosco Youth-Net. The idea of the project was proposed on several training courses by our participants, who felt a need for making a collection of the methods used. So we made time available at those courses for them to collect the methods, adding a few of their own. We also asked our partner organisations to add their most used methods. This makes the book into a joint international effort of the young people involved in the network and of our partners.
Youthpass is a new way for participants in the Youth in Action Programme to describe what they have done and to show what they have learnt. (Up until now the only people to have standardised proof of this through a certificate were participants in European Voluntary Service).
