General Description

Practical note: Please consider that one more the Power of NFE TC will take place in Estonia 11-17 February 2019. Please consider the reality of your time frame and logistics, so you can make a reasonable choice regarding which TC to apply for.

What for and why this Training Course?

– To stimulate the participants to feel and reflect about the power of non-formal education (NFE) by experimenting with different kind of non-formal educational methods.

– To analyze the role and reception of NFE in our different countries within a common Europe.

– To discover and debate the European strategy of NFE.

– To fight against the growing consuming approaches towards young people in the non-formal education field.

– To explore meanings, roles and complementarities of different educational approaches and methods (formal, non-formal, informal).

– To reconsider daily youth work practices.

– To understand the principles of program building and NFE within Youth in Action.

How will it be done?

In order to have real impacts, the participants experience an innovative approach, using a full immersion in the experiential learning cycle: doing/ feeling, reflecting, transferring.

To have profound impact, we need to go further than classical running of training courses. The participants are encouraged to really build their own training and learning process, supported by a fine tuned pedagogical programme. We consider that this is the condition to understand the real power of NFE.

1. Pre-Training Immersion (6 weeks before the TC): Participants receive weekly newsletters in order to start the training process before the residential training course:

– Introduce some key elements and concepts (formal, non-formal, informal…)

– Make participants reflect about their daily practices.

– Discover through short presentations the team members and participants. Creation of a Facebook group as additional tool.

2. The Training Course (4 days and a half): A fundamental flow during the training is based upon:

Experiencing: different educational settings, different non formal education methods (role play, simulation game, exercise…)

Reflecting: on the methods and its impacts, on the power and limits of NFE, on building a pedagogical process…

Transferring: to the own reality of participants, in order to improve ways of working with young people

Sharing: different perceptions, current situations and experiences.

Developing: the building capacity of the participants, by including them in the decision process of the project designing (participants will decide some sessions they feel they need to have) but also in the implementation of the program (‘Power to the People’ moments).

3. The After-Training Consolidation (8 WEEKS): Trainers will be available for participants for a supportive and consulting approach, mainly in the implementation of their action plan.

The team consists of three complementary trainers, coming from different parts of Europe (Jo Claeys – Portugal, Simona Molari – Italy, Denis Morel – France) with different background, working style, experiences but with common values towards Non Formal Education.

Training Course Every Pixel Tells a Story: Exploring Digital Methods for Youth Work

Dates: 16-24 November 2018

Venue: Poland

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Austria, Belarus, Denmark, Moldova

Application deadline: 17th October 2018

The proposed TC aims at bringing European youth workers together and teach them what digital storytelling is and how they can use it as a tool for working with young people with diverse cultural background.

General Description

During the project the participants will go through an intensive set of workshops giving them a chance to learn how to create their own digitalized stories. We believe that learning by doing will provide a deeper understanding of the method and therefore serve as an inspiration for creating similar projects in participants own communities.

Developing projects that are based on new methods and approaches seems to be especially important for those youth workers who are dealing with difficult social issues, as they very often lack proper and effective tools to address their beneficiaries.

Objectives

– To provide participants with knowledge about the digital storytelling method and its possible benefits for youth work

– To equip them with skills necessary to design digital storytelling projects in their own communities

– To enhance participants ICT skills and encourage them to use open source technologies in their daily youth work

– To establish a network of like-minded organizations and individuals, who are interested in the further exchange on the topic of using digital methods for working with youth

– To develop follow-up projects using the skills and knowledge gained during this Training Course

Participant Profile

– Youth workers and youth leaders interested in exploring new ways of working with people with diverse cultural and/or migration background

– Motivated to learn more about the concept of digital storytelling (prior knowledge of photo/video making and editing is not required)

– Ready to use digital storytelling as a method of working with youth in their own communities

– Interested in setting further co-operation with similar organizations from other European countries

– Being able to communicate in English fluently

Training Course: Inclusion of Refugees in Non-Formal Education Context in Youth Work

Application deadline: 7th October 2018

We would like to carry out project to address the problem of inclusion of refugees in non-formal education context in youth work while create synergies among the participating organizations to future cooperation for the inclusive education methods.

General Description

The refugee population is, mainly, made by young people aged between 13-30; in Turkey the percentage is more then 75%. Most of those young people have to be educated to prevent marginalization; in parallel to this issue there are no opportunities for those young refugees to participate to education processes in the Youth Works.

In additional, youth workers/leaders are not competent enough to provide educational opportunities in EU and neighboring countries, especially in places like Turkey and Greece.

The methods used during the TC:

The methodology of the training will be based on the non-formal education methods such as:

  • role-plays,
  • case studies and group work;

there will be a space for participants’ to try out their own methods.

The participants will become aware about the refugee situation in their countries and in EU general therefore they will be able to take initiative towards those issues in their local communities.

Participating in the project, it will motivate them, in their work, as they are working in their local communities as youth workers therefore they will be acting as change makers.
In the long run, potential benefits of the project:

– Racism and xenophobia towards refugees and young people with migration background will be decreased.
– Educational services (in youth work) for refugees and young people with migration background will be increased.

Objectives of the training course:
Thus, the project proposal aims to strengthen the competences of youth workers and youth leaders in finding proper approaches for fostering the inclusion of refugees it also marginalized young people with migration background.

More specifically the projects’ objectives are:
– To strengthen the understanding of inclusion and its challenges for young refugees and young people with migration background.
– To create strategies on youth work context, to improve the quality of youth services developed for refugees and young people with migration background.
– To explore the role of youth work in inclusion strategies on educational services.
– To create and implement local activities on inclusion of young refugees and young people with migration background.
– To strengthen ties between people and organizations engaged in the field of youth work.

This activity and venue place are accessible to people with disabilities.
