Training Course: Time for Tea

Dates: 19 August 2017 – 14 April 2018

Venue: London, United Kingdom

Eligible are 64 participants coming from: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Egypt, Georgia, Italy, Jordan, Lithuania, FYROM, Poland, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 9th July 2017

This is a unique new project for youth workers, trainers and other adults who want to inspire and empower young people. The project is in 3 parts: Training course (London); local youth activity in the home country; and public dissemination event (London).

General Description

When busy people have a cup of tea, they stop and think for a moment. Our leaders are no different. So what would you like them to think about while they drink their tea? Groups of young people or children from different countries imagine a short message on an issue that they think is important. They decide who they want to hear their message.

Then they buy some tea, and design the most original and creative box or packet for it. They put their message inside the special packet, and find an interesting way to deliver the message to the leader they have chosen. All they are asking is that the leader should spend 5 minutes having a nice cup of tea and thinking about something which young people say is important. Finally, they tell the story of what they did, using film, photos, blogs or other creative media.

This long term project will bring together youth workers, teachers and volunteers from 18 different countries including the UK for three linked activities:

1. A training course about how to set up and organise a Time for Tea activity at the local or national level. You will first practice the activity together with other participants, and then make a detailed action plan for organising Time for Tea in your own country. You will also be trained on how to use video to report your activities.
2. When you return home, you will have up to 6 months to organise your own Time for Tea project with a group of children or young people. You will produce a film of your activities. All the films will be uploaded and shared on the Time for Tea website.
3. Finally, you will return to London (10-14 April 2018) to share your experience with all the other participants, and to present your project results at a public dissemination event in central London, for a VIP audience of key stakeholders and sponsors.

Activity 1 of the project is divided into two groups:

  • A: 19-25 August 2017
  • B: 21-27 October 2017

In order to simplify communication and administration, there is a single application process for both groups.

Training Course: ARTooLINK (Art2Link)

Dates: 26 June – 7 July 2017

Venue: Vranje, Serbia

Eligible are 36 participants coming from: Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Romania, Serbia, Spain

Application deadline: 4th June 2017

The project ARTooLINK aims to show the possibilities of ART medias in the work with different social, political and cultural topics related to Roma minority.

General Description

The art is not just the boost of the creative way of thinking, but also to build capacity to use visual language in communication. Which artistic resources can we use and how to make the most of them, when there is a wish to make a change in society, even making an impact on policy making.

Though participants are experienced in their professions, by gaining the skills in visual and art language they will build the bridge for understanding the different professionals and their views, which is essential for collaboration in the field with Youth work, especially in marginalized minorities.

Without the regards, if the person is already established in its profession or is still searching its path, each participant will gain knowledge on the different art techniques and new methods, to maximize the success of their action. The project program is composed to introduce the more layered methodology that works on the individual as well in the group work. The individuals and group will experience each art medium from beginning to the end which is essential for its understanding and possibility to later implement.

More important is that those art methods are taken from good practice with Roma community and our consortium wants to share it with other organizations facing the same difficulties to make bridges between the Roma communities – Roma Youth and other people and to eliminate the strong discrimination. This was reached with project Roma ARTirythm granted in 2016.

Participants will be able to make their own projects by using the artistic medias with the appeal, they will experience a healthy and enriching exchange of ideas from other organizations. They will be more prepared for stronger collaboration building a solid network between participants with different professional profiles, offering the possibility to create international actions together in a near future.

We will provide the participant with the right set of skills, to communicate and connect with each other and to work with different problematic, backgrounds and understandings. This could be implemented fields, tackling efficiently different issues and needs. They will also learn to work with the community and not “for” community but being outside the community. The project will teach participants to work with their agendas and to develop creative and open minds with the space for new perspectives and new approaches – for instance with art as a tool that empowers the Roma youth.

Each partner organization is sending 4 participants, with different profiles and working or having done so, with or in the Roma community. Desirably for this project we are targeting 4 different kinds of profiles (however the project do not require that those are professionals, it also welcomes those that are still searching for its future career and wants to gain the news skills in those fields).

1) Social Worker (including Psychologists)
A person that is engaged in the social issues in the community. Social worker deals with the “basic needs” as is standards in health, education, rights, etc. When those needs are fulfilled, the social worker is then able to engage/create healthy developments for the community (pedagogic activities, including culture activities, political activities, etc.)
2) Educators/Facilitators/Cultural Actors
A person that has professional skills and experience in non-formal education and facilitating the events, projects, or cultural actions.
3)Activists/Artists/Artivists
A person that is actively engaged in promoting the interests of the group or community. This person is the bridge between the community and public (including the policy makers). This person is focused on mediating the issues in an active way, ideally promoting it using art as a vehicle for engagement.
4)Future or present political actors including those in Political sciences

This person has engaged already in actions leading to political career or policy making positions. The person can be a leader of youth political party, can be the active member of youth parliament, or studies the political or diplomatic studies. This person can already be in certain position at a ministry, municipality, etc. Aiming for a long lasting and continuous support coming from within the political system against discrimination, towards a multi-cultural society.

Why? We believe that it is important to establish the recognition of each profession by appreciating their work, but what the project aims to establish trans-disciplinary cooperation between the different types and ways of thinking. The project activities are designed to recognize the work of each one of them but to put apart those professions and to open the mind for “different languages”.

This is reached through non-formal methods of how to present myself, how to establish communication, how to contribute to others work, how to work in a team, how to lead the discussion, how to work in big teams. We believe that it is necessary to have each representative of those profiles being it professionals, (or on the way to be the professional, or practicing it in the community) and to teach them together with the collaboration as that is the most important element for the community to grow, to be active, and prosper in a
positive way.

Training Coursel: InsideOut – developing talents through the process of self-discovery

Dates: 18-25 June 2017

Venue: Eupen, Belgium – DE

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Czech Republic, Estonia, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Slovenia

Application deadline: 5th June 2017

Training Course on developing talents through out self-discovery. Self-awareness is the first step of development. Development needs direction. This training will provide tools to help you to set goals and learn your personal ways to achieve them.

General Description

Overall aim:

During this training course we’re going to explore how to develop our talents by focussing on our personal learning process. We will do this by bringing participants on a journey of self-discovery and reflecting their identity.

We invite participants who are going through the experience of this personal journey to apply their learning to their work with young people after the training course.

Objectives:

• to explore the concepts of talent, passion and aptitudes
• to explore basic concepts of learning and reflect on our learning process in order to improve our abilities to develop our talents
• to raise awareness of our identity through reflecting on our talents and passions
• to stimulate the creativity, vulnerability, confidence and resilience of the participants
• to encourage and serve the participants in planning their learning process also after the training course and also implement with their target groups
• to learn more about the Erasmus+ program and its actions, and Youth Pass as a tool of recognition of the key competences

The approach and methodology:

This training course will be based on non-formal and informal education with a self-directed learning approach. That means that the participants are responsible for their own learning and the facilitators provide activities and guide the participants through the process. The training course will be highly participatory, interactive and experiential.

The working methods will include case studies, working in pairs and small groups, meditations, contemplations, team building activities, role plays, discussions, and self-assessment. Some sessions will be complemented by theoretical inputs and all of them will be followed by reflection.

The profile of participants:

Youth workers, project leaders and educators involved in youth work. The participants will have a multiplier role, in other words: they will adapt what they learn in this training course to the context of working with young people. In their future projects and daily work they can incorporate tools, methods and theory which they have learned during this TC. They can also use their personal learning and development in their daily work with their own target groups.

Venue: Žilina, Slovak Republic

Eligible are 26 participants coming from: Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Slovak Republic, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 6th June 2017

Power of Circle will be a course with a strong sense of community aiming at youth workers and teachers. We will explore together the idea and uses of circles in education and personal development.

General Description

Education needs fresh impulses in order to serve better to young people so they grow up in flexible, responsible, creative, pro-active and empathetic human beings ready for the challenges today and tomorrow world brings.

Current situation in education (both formal and nonformal) is often not reflecting the changes of todays world and offers not enough impulses for youth workers / teachers how they can facilitate learning for today and future needs of individuals and communities.

Education is not only about content, but a lot as well about structures and settings. We would like to focus on the second (not leaving the content out of course).

Our aim is to contribute to the spectrum of tools and experiences youth workers / teachers have so they experience and learn how facilitating of learning can look like in less-hierarchical, nature and community based settings.

What might you gain from this experience?

  • Experiencing the many ways that circle forms work in education and how this can help everyone involved in the process of learning.

  • Inspiration and the confidence to think outside of the box in educational settings.
  • The chance to help create an international and diverse community of enquiry.
  • The skills to be able to facilitate circles in personal and professional life.
  • Knowledge and new ideas through sharing of our educational practice.
  • Reflecting on applying what we learn in the service of our communities, our professional and our personal life.
