Youthpass

What is Youthpass?

Youthpass is a certificate that describes your learning in Baseline’s youth programs. It is also a process of reflecting on your learning and writing it down. Starting from term 4, 2015, a number of Baseline programs will be using Youthpass. Contact Baseline on 94048800 or baseline@whittlesea.vic.gov.au to find out which programs are using the Youthpass process and offering a Youthpass certificate.

Youthpass is a Europe-wide validation system for non-formal learning developed by the European Commission for the EU Erasmus+: Youth in Action programme. City of Whittlesea has adapted the Youthpass tool to be suitable for use in Australia. Baseline for Young People is the first agency in Australia to use Youthpass in their work.
