Dates: 3-10 August 2019

Venue: Sluňákov, Horka nad Moravou, Olomouc, Czech Republic

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Spain, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 30th June 2019

Develop advanced communication, presentation and facilitation skills for youth work, with an experienced team combining approaches such as theatre, comedy, storytelling, psychology, sociology, education, music, social & creative community work.

General Description

“StageCraft for Youth Workers” is the second edition, funded by the Erasmus+ programme and promoted by the Czech NGO Vice Versa, of a training format on advanced communication, presentation and facilitation skills development, targeting primarily youth and social workers and educators.

The project is a 7 days residential training which combines approaches such as theatre, comedy, storytelling, psychology, sociology, education, music, social & creative community work.

The project will take place in the Czech Republic, close to the city of Olomouc, in the beautiful ecological centre Sluňákov, from the 3rd to the 10th of August 2019 (travel days included). It will involve 24 participants and 4 trainers from 10 different European countries (Italy, Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and United Kingdom).

The objectives of the training course are:

• To develop and build on a greater understanding of the presentation and engagement skills and experiences of youth workers;
• To explore and understand the effects of effective presentation and engagement with an audience of young people and in the role of youth worker;
• To gain a greater awareness of the theory behind “Stagecraft” taken from the fields of psychology, sociology, education, theatre and creative community (comedy, music and drama);
• To identify and realise the opportunities to put the skills developed into practice;

A Word on the Approach

The course seeks to develop what we think are the advanced skills – sometimes neglected – of being able to use the environment, our physiology, our body language and the content of our message to make our youth work even more effective. We will draw from applied psychology and from skills-sets used in theatre by professional presenters and comedians, to make the training diverse and exciting.

Participants will have opportunities to reflect on the fact that – as well as expensive and ubiquitous technology – there are many other resources and skills we can use to keep young people engaged, and develop effective relationships with them. Our course will be highly interactive, we will apply each methodology on the spot, and participants will have many chances to challenges themselves in and out of their comfort zones to develop new awareness and skills. Be prepared for some real Stagecraft thrills!

CAMINO is a training course on value-based assistance in NFE. It aims at training experienced educators and trainers in youth work to become equipped in dealing with intra and interreligious dialogue within an intercultural youth work setting.

General Description

DBYN has a tradition of using intra- and interreligious dialogue in non-formal education. In our educational methodology we refer to this as value-based assistance or Salesian chaplaincy.

It allows young people from all worldviews to share their values in life, refraining from any form of proselytism. This preventive approach puts young people in the centre. It builds their intercultural and social competences allowing them to see through cultural and religious stereotypes. These competences enable their participation in building their local communities through their active engagement as volunteers.

Project summary

CAMINO is a 6-day training course on value-based assistance in non-formal education. It aims at training experienced educators and trainers in youth work to become equipped in dealing with intra-and interreligious dialogue within an intercultural youth work setting.

With this training course, DBYN wants to commit developing and transferring our expertise in interreligious dialogue from grassroots level to European level.

The training course takes place in Benediktbeuern, Germany from the 26th of August until the 2nd of September 2019.

Aims

The main aim of this training course is to develop and implement a qualitative learning programme on value-based assistance in non-formal education, aimed at generating strategic impact on DBYN and the wider European youth sector. In order to put achieve this aim, we put forward 3 objectives:

  • To train 25 young educators and trainers in value-based assistance through a qualitative non-formal learning programme, aimed at setting up a sustainable pool of Salesian chaplains.
  • To collect new methods, approaches, insights and policy recommendations for value-based assistance within non-formal learning, from the perspective of intra- and interreligious dialogue, and make them available as resource through online platforms.
