The ‘Community Animateur’ is a new role in youth work and volunteering.

This role requires new ways of thinking, new skills and new ways of working.

To help youth workers and volunteers understand what Community Animateurs do, develop the skills they need to become successful Animateurs, and learn how to put these skills into practice, COMANITY has developed two key tools:

The Community Animateur Competence Framework – this defines a ‘skills set’ for Community Animateurs, and describes all of the competences that are needed to perform the role

Community Animateur Competence Self-Assessment Tools – these explain all of the competences in the framework and provide ‘quizzes’ to help you find out which competences you are good and which could be improved.
