ABOUT THE TRAINING
Being a youth workers is very rewarding, but often not an easy task. It requires not only knowledge regarding the specific thematic area we conduct our activities in, but also many other skills. Unfortunately, even though we do as much as we can to develop them (also by learning from our failures and mistakes), it is not rare that while working with young people, we see our shortcoming and things we could have done better. This training aims to build and develop skills that are crucial for being an effective youth worker.
Thus, youth workers participating in this training will develop:
- confidence and skills by conducting new, more engaging form of activities,
- skills in responding for situations currently foreseen as difficult or challenging,
- ability to respond to questions (that are currently often seen as difficult and problematic) in a way that would contribute to develop youth’s critical thinking and interest in a topic;
- other skills that are useful for youth workers, which they feel they currently lacking (public speaking, group management, team building, facilitating discussions).
- Active youth workers
- Aged 20+
- Knowledge of English that enables active participation
The training will gather together 30 youth workers from 10 countries (Albania, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Italy, Lithuania, North Macedonia, Poland, Spain, Ukraine).
- Participants should arrive before 7 pm on 28th September 2022 (Wednesday).
- The departure will take place on 7th October 2022 (Friday) after breakfast.
- Please note that it is not possible to arrive later or leave earlier – participants need to be present throughout an entire duration of the training.
