Training Course: Conflict Resolution through Dialogue

Dates: 30 March – 05 April 2017

Venue: Armenia

Eligible are 22 participants coming from: Greece, Russian Federation, Bulgaria, Croatia, Armenia, Georgia

Application deadline: 21st February 2017

“Conflict Resolution through Dialogue” is a project , which aims to empower and equip young leaders and youth workers with negotiation, intercultural communication, diversity management and conflict resolution skills on personal, interpersonal and organizational level to contribute to the culture of peace and cooperation.

Description

The project’s main activity is a Training Course for youth workers, which will take place in Armenia. During the training course youth workers will share between and learn from each other their knowledge and skills in using various communication tools and develop their creativity to come up with new ones for an effective and meaningful outreach to young people they work with.

The objectives that we hope will help us achieving the project’s aim are:

• Equip participants with interpersonal communication and negotiation skills
• Explore tools, approaches and attitudes for effective conflict intervention and resolving seemingly intractable disputes on all levels (personal, organizational, community and country level)
• Develop and promote intercultural competences and diversity management skills for youth work in multi-cultural environments with high conflict risks. Encourage participants to see diversity as an opportunity for value creation and cooperation.
• Promote active citizenship and non-violent actions towards peace and democracy.
• Promote the non formal education approach as a powerful method for dealing with conflicts
• Promote EU programs and opportunities for youth

There will be 3 main sets of activities within the project conducted using non-formal methods of education:

– Firstly, in preparation of the training course, there will be an inventorying activity of the most discussed conflicts in Europe (as proposed by project partners). In this stage partners will assist project participants in putting together a “basket of conflicts in Europe”, from which the youth workers will choose those they want to resolve at during specific workshops at the project.
– Secondly, during the training days, workshops will be organized aimed at learning to use the tools used in the project. Participants will have the possibility to select a number of conflicts and in advance provided tools of conflict resolution to improve their ability to use them, and create their first outputs.

– Thirdly, after the training, on their return home, participants will continue to improve their skills using the newly acquired tools, by producing at least one material on the topic they work with using any/each of the preferred tools that they will include in an awareness raising/education campaign. The preparation for this will start during the last days of the training course. After the campaign they will make an assessment of receptivity and understanding of this message by young people.

In our activities, two very important principles are the participants’ need based approach and the use of non-formal and informal education tools. During the training course participants will go through a flow of activities addressing both their skills and their personal development.

As a result of the project, we expect that:

1. participating youth workers will be able to resolve the conflict situation in the workplace and with the young people they are working with in a more attractive and time-efficient manner.
2. by following this approach the organization atmosphere will be more attractive and the outreach of organizations among young people (but not only) in the local and national communities will increase and the awareness of these communities will increase in relation to the issues that these organizations work on.
3. some of the young people our participants work with will be interested to learn to use such tools, too. Thus, project participants will have the chance to share their skills and know-how at local levels, multiplying the outcomes of the training course.

Participants’ Profile:

In order to be selected, applicants will have to meet the following criteria:

  • Have experience as a volunteer/youth-worker/educator/coordinator of an NGO, working with young people, or having being involved into a social initiative or any youth movement.
  • Have basic knowledge into the fields of conflict transformation/resolution at regional or international level.
  • Interested into using the project’s outcomes, to raise awareness of their local societies
  • Sufficient knowledge of English language, in order to be able to follow the training course & to contribute to the multiplying effects, of this project.
  • Able to contribute with active participation, throughout the project.

Training Course: “ONE 2 ONE” supporting learning face to face

Dates: 28 May – 3 June 2017

Venue: Budapest, Hungary

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Erasmus+ Youth in Action Programme countries

Application deadline: 24th March 2017

Have you ever felt confused about your role with the young people you work with? Do they see you as a coach? Mentor? Tutor? Can you work with groups, but find it difficult to work with individuals? Have you never had a tetralemma? YES? Then this course is for you!

Description

Context and background of this training course:

In several areas of the Erasmus+ Youth in Action programme, youth workers and trainers are increasingly required to be able not only to work with groups of young people but, also, to accompany individuals through the various learning and personal development processes on offer.

Although one-to-one dialogue may seem like an obvious and natural form of communication, many youth workers feel they need training in order to appropriately support young people through their individual development and learning processes.

We are very happy to invite you to apply for the third edition of this successful course, which will be held in the European Youth Centre Budapest.

WHAT “One 2 One” STANDS FOR?
“One 2 One” is a little play on words. One 2 one means face to face i.e. the individual relationship, which we are focusing on during the training course.

The aims and objectives of this training course:

The main aim of the One 2 One training course is to empower and equip youth workers with the competences needed to work individually with young people in order to support their learning processes.

Within this, we seek:
– To share and exchange about various types of contexts, approaches and the learning effects of different environments;
– To explore the topic of “learning”;
– To explore what “supporting learning” means in one-to-one relationships;
– To develop the skill of initiating & supporting self-reflection about learning;
– To make links between these approaches and the wider picture, e.g. to make connections with the recently published “Competence model for youth workers”.

Target group and profile of participants:
– professionals and volunteers – youthworkers and/or youth leaders, youth trainers, EVS mentors, educators etc. – who see a need for developing their competences in working individually with young people.
– those who want to facilitate learning in youth work through one-to-one relationships, for example, in supporting the Youthpass process
– 18 years old and older;
– able to actively participate in English;

The learning process and the programme of the training course

In order to provide the possibility for participants to experience being supported individually in their own learning process, the training course is extended by One 2 One talks with the trainers both before and after the course. Each participant will be accompanied by the same trainer throughout.

What you can expect:
Before the training course: Participant and trainer + One 2 One talks
Training course: Participant and trainer +
One 2 One talks
After the training course: Participant and trainer + One 2 One talks

The preliminary programme of the course is presented below on a separate page and will be adjusted according to participants’ expressed needs and expectations.

Trainers:
Monika Kezaite – Jakniuniene is a trainer from Lithuania. She has been involved in youthwork for more than 13 years, mostly in the volunteering field. She has gathered experience in building individual relationships with young people while preparing volunteers for their long-term programmes, as well as consulting trainees in their educational path. Monika trains at both national and European levels. You can meet her in SALTO – YOUTH trainings like SOHO.
