Training Course: WeMen

Dates: 30 April – 14 May 2018

Venue: Homade, Brivezac, France

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Bulgaria, France, Poland, Portugal, Turkey

Application deadline: 20th December 2017

With our training course “WeMen” we want to invite activists, educators, youth workers, writers and visual artists to lend their support to involve youth for gender equity.

Description

Gender equality has a universally recognized benefit for people. However, our visual references (media, advertisements, movies and more), are still full of sexist stereotypes and vividly illustrate the depth of stereotypes permeating our contemporary civilization. Yet everyone have much to gain equality of all people, genders and sexes.

Our workshop in Brivezac, France, April 30 – May 14 2018, will invite youth workers and artists to lend their support to involve youth for gender equity.

We have chosen to address this topic through the use of creative digital tools because images are a powerful tool for reflection and call to action, and digital media has the widest impact reach.

t is well-known fact that teenagers and youngsters often take as role models the images, that are created by the Media. At this sensible age, youngsters often don’t want to think critically and adapt the role models for different genders without questioning them.

We are sure that youth workers or even educated youth are able to change the situation. We want to act and bring positive changes in our societies taking a special focus on media.

We intend to bring everyone messages for gender equity and equality through digital images. We intend to invite youth workers and educators to use these tools in their future work.

WeMen will bring together 24 men and women in equal proportions of youth workers, visual artists, gender activists and theoricians from different parts of Europe: 8 French, 4 Polish, 4 Bulgarian, 4 Portuguese and 4 Turkish.

The main aim of this Training Course in France is to increase awareness and provide youth workers with proper knowledge about gender issues and perspectives of European and project countries media.

The workshop will end with a local exhibition of comic strips to engage young people in favor of gender equality.

As a follow-up we would like to engage the youth workers and educators to bring the new creations and practices in their work, facilitate workshops and continue to conversation.

Training Course: In Land We Trust. Youth employability educational course

Dates: 1-9 December 2017

Venue: Gyulagarak, Armenia

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Armenia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Jordan, Poland, Russian Federation, Slovak Republic, Ukraine

Application deadline: 14th November 2017

7-day training course on youth employability focusing on mostly youth from disadvantaged areas like rural communities.

Description

European Ways NGO (Germany) and Youth and Community Action Club NGO (Armenia) together with its partners initiates “In Land We Trust” training course which addresses the Long-term unemployment in rural areas which is one of the main concerns of policymakers.

Apart from its financial and social effects on personal life, it negatively affects social cohesion and, ultimately, may hinder economic growth. Clearly, the lack of availability of jobs in Europe is part of the problem, but it is far from the whole story.

Stepping into the labor market young people are discouraged by the high rate of competition, and they are disadvantaged by their lack of proven working experience. Yet, despite this availability of labor, employers are dissatisfied with applicants’ skills, and often the vacancies stay open as employers cannot find the needed profile.

So why is it that young people are not getting the skills that employers need? One reason is the failure of employers, education providers and young people to understand one another needs.

Through the activities we will follow the Kolb cycle, i.e. experiencing – observing and reflecting – giving theoretical background – linking with reality and develop participants’ skills, attitudes, and knowledge in different areas, connected to the rural development.

The workshops will be tailored to meet participants’ learning needs and will combine theoretical input with interactive exercises and tools for youth empowerment.

“In land we trust” is designed and structured in a way that gives participants the freedom to express themselves, to share their experience and skills, to learn as much as possible in terms of the main topics and to acquire new skills beneficial for their youth work.

The whole project is mainly practice oriented and is a platform for generating and developing new ideas for rural development. On the one hand, the course workshops will equip participants with some practical skills, for example, the workshop on best practices and failures.

“In land we trust” will be based on non-formal education methodology and techniques. To our main methods belong: open space, experiential learning, practical workshops, working in small groups and in plenary, open discussions, debates, simulations, role plays, etc.

Particular attention will be paid to such elements as interaction, cooperation rather than competition, holistic approach, intercultural learning, using participants’ experiences and taking in account the group dynamics and group needs.

Objectives:
– To find out the possible solutions of unemployment problem at personal, organisational and community levels by monitoring the real situations in different countries
– To improve abilities of youth workers, activists and young people from rural areas to increase their chances to get employed or make their own projects
– To give the tools and techniques on how to reach a low unemployment rates in rural areas
– To challenge young people to face unemployment reasons and related problems for understanding the lack of knowledge or experience and start to develop them

– To empower young people with the means of non-formal education
– To identify the real needs of youth workers working with rural youth and to assess their capacities.
– To understand the real needs of the rural job market and to discover the way to meet those needs
– To motivate youth workers to take part in social changes aiming at increasing youth employability by exploring their leadership potential
– To create new projects designed to lower the unemployment rates and keep youth to develop their rural homeland.
– To write a handbook with best practices and failures about rural developments.

The training is open for youth workers and youth leaders. There is no age limit, but we expect to have a group of 18-30y.o.

The training will take place in Gyulagarak, Armenia on December 1-9th (travel days included)

Training Course: Power to You(th)

Dates: 28 January – 2 February 2018

Venue: Beaufort, Luxembourg

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme countries

Application deadline: 30th November 2017

A training course for youth workers and youth leaders on how to support young people to become and feel empowered to positively contribute to society. We will explore how the Erasmus+ programme can help to do this.

Description

“Knowing who you are and who you want to be helps you to make your own decisions and take the responsibility to shape your own life”.

Empowerment is the learning process in which a person becomes aware of their own strengths and abilities, passions and learning needs and is capable of choosing how and when to use these and/or develop them more. It is about developing self-awareness and confidence, and from this being able to self-guide what you want to do and take responsibility for one’s own life.

It is important that young people have the capacity to focus on their own learning process so that they can identify their strengths and abilities that in turn empower them to act in a positive way in society.

Youth work and Non-formal education can positively influence youth empowerment. It can provide an encouraging and safe space in which young people can become more self-aware of skills, and focus on the development of confidence, new skills and learn how to take responsibility.

The youth worker / youth leader plays an important role in guiding and mentoring the young people in this process of learning.

This training course will use a variety of interactive non-formal learning methods and is focused on:

1. Exploring the important elements of empowerment as a learning process,
2. How youth work can provide a valuable space for these empowering learning processes, and
3. How youth workers and youth leaders can create and facilitate this process to maximize empowerment of young people.

We will be exploring how non-formal learning activities can be used to this end. Furthermore, we explore how the Erasmus+ Youth programme can be used to inspire and empower young people to actively participate in society.
