Training Course: people beyONd borders – tools for fighting discrimination and building more inclusive society

Dates: 17-26 February 2018

Venue: Serbia

Eligible are 22 participants coming from: Italy, Kosovo*, Montenegro, Portugal, Serbia, Slovenia

Application deadline: 27th November 2017

Erasmus+ project “people beyONd borders” is a TC to be held in Serbia, in February 2018. The main objective of the TC is providing participants theoretical and practical knowledge about current refugee’s situation in Serbia, Europe and tools to work with around the topic.

Description

This TC is designed to introduce participants to the topic of migrations and current situation in Europe regarding migrants and refugees, and to share with them tools for fighting discrimination and building more inclusive society.

What?
„people beyONd borders“ is a 10 days TC with the objective of providing participants with theoretical and practical knowledge about current migrant and refugee situation in Europe, and providing them with tools for understanding this problem, for fighting discrimination and building their community into more understanding and inclusive one.

Why?
From April 2015 until today, during “European Refugee Crisis”, over two million refugees and migrants have had their desperate journey to Europe, coming mostly from war-torn Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. These people came running away from unbearable life conditions in their countries, searching for safety and future for themselves and their families.

Their way to Europe is full of obstacles and difficulties and what they encounter once they finally reach Europe is devastating. They become subjects to discrimination, stereotypes, exclusion, and unfortunately even violence.

At the same time, media are either not reporting about this things or they’re sending incorrect, exaggerated and even dangerous information. All this creates atmosphere of not understanding, discrimination and prejudice towards refugees. In order to make first steps towards change of this atmosphere, we would like to provide young people with knowledge and tools they can use to make the change.

How?
Through workshops, lectures, interactive presentations and discussions hosted by experts on the subject, participants will learn and practice different approaches to this situation which will hopefully inspire them to act and to share their knowledge in their own community.

Who?
19 participants from 6 countries – Serbia, Kosovo*, Montenegro, Italy, Slovenia and Portugal.

Public speaking is one of the most important skills for a youth worker or youth trainer! We invite you to join Public Speaking (Acting) Training Course where you will improve your public speaking skills!

Description

Good speaking is your most enduring skill. That’s especially important for youth workers who have to communicate with people a lot and particularly – with young people trying to bobodte and inspire them!

We invite you to join the training course on Public Speaking (Acting) which is designed for youth workers who want to develop their public speaking skills, improve their acting abilities. Youth workers will learn new tools which are essential for successful youth work.

The course will take place from 10th till 17th December 2017 in Moscow, Russia.

You will learn how to motivate the audiences with solid arguments and moving language. You will learn how to build the speech to make sure you will be able to deliver the message you want! You will find the ways to build the arguments in a way that will be able to support your point stronger.

In the professional realm, we need to be able to argue without being argumentative. Whether you are fundraising for a nonprofit, pitching a business proposal, or suggesting a change to company policy, you are making arguments. During this course you will learn how to build the arguments which will help you to reach your aims!

The most memorable speeches inspire, entertain, and praise. By blending stories and eloquence, great speeches highlight the core values motivating an audience. But how to design and deliver those speeches?! Or how to influence people in your speech and make them your supporters? You will learn that during a course!

How to prepare presentations? Youth workers often need to present – the projects, the ideas etc. This course gives you a reliable model for preparing and delivering effective presentations. How to deliver the presentation which will leave your opponents speechless?! You will learn it during the course!

The learners during the course will design, practice, and receive feedback on speeches that they can use in their professional lives.

The course is designed for youth workers including youth trainers. The course will be especially useful for those youth workers who are considering to become a trainer in future or already conducting trainings but do not have enough experience yet.

Public speaking is an important skill for a youth worker! Youth workers need to deliver the speech to donors, prepare presentations.

They need to be able to deliver inspiring presentations to youth they are working with! Public speaking skills are already present in any person – some people have it more developed and some others – less. At the same time – it is the skill that you can improve if you work on it.

If you know some tools, some technics and “tricks” – you can become much better public speaker than before! We invite you to the course where you will learn those tools, technics and “tricks”!

The training course is designed by the Netherlands Institute of Business. Participants who will complete the course will receive the certificates from the Netherlands Institute of Business.

Join us if you would like to improve your public speaking skills and deliver the mind-blowing presentations!

Training Course: The new concept of social inclusion

Dates: 11-18 December 2017

Venue: Kolasin, Montenegro

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Bosnia and Herzegovina, France, Italy, KOSOVO*, Latvia, Montenegro, Serbia, Spain

Application deadline: 11th November 2017

The main aim of our project is to equip youth workers with competences and methods needed for providing social entrepreneurial learning to the young people with fewer opportunities (particularly young refugee and youth with migrant origin).

Description

Social entrepreneurship has been gaining a growing attention in the last few years, as a way for addressing social challenges such as migration.

Social enterprises work for the less privileged people in society; many of them have been supporting the active inclusion of disadvantaged people, contribute to job creation, and often provide services which are socially necessary and useful.

Social entrepreneurship allows young people not only to gain professional experience but also to integrate into society. Youth work can inform young people about the advantages and drawbacks of entrepreneurship helping them make informed decisions.

It makes young people reflect on the values and ethics of youth work and base their entrepreneurial decisions on them. It can also guide them to other services who can help them (employment offices, specialized training courses, local and regional administrations etc.).

Project will facilitate the sharing of practices and methods useful for social entrepreneurship creation and support.
