Are you one of the thousands of youth project organisers in Europe? Trying to make a little change with the youth work you do? Maybe you want to have some bigger impact? It only takes a little bit more effort and strategic thinking! Your youth project is like a stone thrown in the water: it creates some ripples or waves on the water, your youth work intends to have some impact. This booklet helps you think and plan how you can make the biggest possible waves with your project. Be proud of your work! 'Making Waves' gives you some practical suggestions to increase the visibility your project. The more people know about your work, the better. Surely your project generates some wonderful results or products: new methods, a CD-rom, learning, a theatre-play, recommendations to decision-makers,... Don't sit on your project results - share them with others! 'Making Waves' lists some tips and tricks about you to disseminate your results. But it would even be better if your project results were actually also USED. 'Making Waves' guides you through the exploitation of your project results. Visibility, dissemination and exploitation of results (sometimes called 'valorisation') are important features of the Youth in Action programme. SALTO-YOUTH pro-actively took up its 'support role' within the YiA programme and developed this practical publication for youth workers faced with these visibility, dissemination and exploitation requests in their projects. 'Making Waves' hopes to give you inspiration about how to make the most out of your project and create the best waves possible!
