General Description

“Colours of Empowerment” is an 8-day-lasting international training course on how to design, facilitate and evaluate meaningful educational activities in inclusive youth work.

Aim and Programme Elements

We aim at empowering and building up the competences of educational practitioners to design, facilitate and evaluate meaningful educational activities in inclusive youth work, especially with and for marginalized youth:

exclusion, inclusion, participation: what groups and individuals are we talking about? What do we want to reach with & for them, and how?

learning and non-formal education: approaches, conditions, models, factors, processes

meeting the needs of inclusion groups: matching of target group ↔ needs ↔ objectives ↔ methodology, how to ensure impact & relevance

practical tools and methods: for the design, facilitation & assessment of educational activities

creation & testing: of own educational modules with/in front of group

practice in feedback: empathy, coaching & communication skills

hot issues: common challenges and best practices in educational inclusive youth work

role(s): context, ethics & competences of youth workers and inclusion workers in an educational context

self-assessment: coaching & professional development plan

partnership-building and the development of follow-up activities

Profile of Participants

For participation in the this training course we are targeting youth workers, inclusion workers, educators and people actively involved in inclusive youth work. The most important criteria is that participants be in an educational position (eg facilitators, work camp leaders, trainers, group leaders, coaches etc).

Participants must be aged 18+ and be residents in the country of the nominating partner organisation. Participants should be fluent in english, and be willing and committed to work hard (about 9 hours per day at least). Participants should furthermore commit to carry out agreed preparatory tasks and be willing to follow-up on the training course via active youth work, ideally in co-operation with their sending/partner organisation.

Context and about us:

“Hugarafl”, an Icelandic term which translates in english into “Mindpower”, is a recovery centre for people who have experienced mental health challenges and who are now working hard on improving their situation, in a spirit of empowerment and self-determination.

In Mindpower, professionals are working side by side with experts by experience on equal bases and by peer to peer support. The main idea is to avoid the usual victimization and dis-empowerment of people with mental health issues, by instead truly empowering them for self-determination and equal participation. In Mindpower we have a strong youth chapter called “Youngminds”, who has in the past years also developed international activities, often with the support of Erasmus+.

During the intercultural evenings, participants will be asked to bring and present pieces of their culture (music, food, dance, data, pictures, collages, etc.) in an inclusive way.

All project activities are based on non-formal education methods and tools (working groups, debriefings, free discussions, role plays, worships, teambuilding exercises, games, energizers, reflections, study visits, presentations etc.), which encourage active participation of each participant in the sessions.

Training Course: Let’s Digital Storytell!

Dates: 18-27 August 2018

Venue: Bucharest, Romania

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Lithuania, Portugal, Romania, Spain, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 17th July 2018

Explore the fundamentals of the digital storytelling and apply it as an innovative method to empower young people. Learn to create digital stories and improve your creativity, communication, critical thinking, teamwork and digital entrepreneurship skills.

General Description

Let’s Digital Storytell! will bring together 24 participants from 6 European countries. The countries involved are Bulgaria, Lithuania, Portugal, Romania, Spain and UK. Thus, please note that this call is open only for UK participants.

The main aim of the training course is to develop the digital storytelling competences of youth workers and young people, and to equip our participants with valuable knowledge that is transferable to many other projects. The attendees will have the opportunity to share their skills and experience, and to explore digital storytelling from the perspective of digital marketing and using it as an alternative to traditional videos and for their NGOs’ promotion.

The training course will teach our participants the fundamentals of the digital storytelling process and how to create simple digital stories that can be used when working with young people. Participants will also learn how to use digital storytelling as a powerful tool of digital communication by producing exciting digital stories that require minimal experience and equipment.

Context: young people living in rural and disadvantage area can barely enjoy the benefits of technology-assisted trainings on digital skills due to the existing gaps in infrastructure and equipment, software and platforms, and limited teaching staff and resources.

Young citizens from all over the world need to be equipped with digital competences and complementary skillsets and capabilities if they want to leverage existing and emerging technologies for development, to reach personal goals in their personal or professional life, and to be prepared for the jobs of the future.

Briefly the main idea of the Let’s Digital Storytell! training course is for participants to:

1. learn the fundamentals of the digital storytelling process and apply it as a modern educational method and that can be replicated when working with young people,
2. explore digital storytelling from the perspective of digital marketing, using it as an alternative to traditional videos for the promotion of NGOs, and to also use digital stories to shape and evolve organizational branding, increase their visibility and in developing marketing campaigns,
3. to ensure a strong foundation in 21st century skills (visual/global/digital literacy) by creating digital stories that required minimal experience and equipment (e.g. digital devices such as smartphones, tablets, basic camera etc.) but with a high impact towards the audience.

Besides exploring an innovative technology tool and enjoying a great learning experience, Let’s Digital Storytell! training course will help us improve many complementary “soft skills” such as creativity, communication skills, critical and logical thinking, teamwork, or digital entrepreneurship and to develop the following competences:
– Digital Literacy, the ability to communicate with a worldwide community to discuss issues, gather information, and seek help.
– Global Literacy, the capacity to read, interpret, respond, and contextualize messages from a global perspective.
– Visual Literacy, the ability to understand, produce, and communicate through visual images.
– Technology Literacy, the ability to use computers, tablets, mobile devices and other technology to improve learning, productivity, and performance.
– Information Literacy, the ability to find, evaluate and synthesize information.

This training course is primarily aimed at youth workers, youth leaders, educators, trainers, teachers, NGO volunteers, who would like to expand their knowledge in the field of digital storytelling and to boost their digital skills.

Participants need to have a good command of the English language and be ready to engage in interactive educational activities. Also, they need to be EU citizens or residents of the project countries and should not be involved in EVS programmes nor to be Erasmus students. The participants should be over 18 years old.

Application deadline: 18th July 2018

The democratic future of a nation is an invaluable asset, and the involvement of young people in society is essential for the good functioning and continuity of democracy.

General Description

Sociological research demonstrates that the largest segments of society with the greatest capacity for change are the young people. It depends on us, the adults, youth workers and educators the extent to which the young generation will be prepared to assume the responsibility of active participation in society.

Unfortunately, global statistics reveal the low interest of young people in democratic life, in knowledge of state institutions, citizens’ rights and freedoms, active participation and responsibility within the community.

This things happens due to social inequity, poor governance in some, the social and economic crises, the huge differences between social classes, especially in Eastern countries.

Young people have lost confidence and motivation to change something, only few of them believe that the future of society stand in their hands and act to change something.

The purpose of the Active Citizenship training course is to pay attention to this phenomenon, to mobilize youth workers to find solutions to raise awareness about the importance of democratic life for young people, to find methods to stimulate active participation and show the consequences of indifference and non-involvement in civic life.

Objectives
– To increase the level of knowledge about youth participation, and civic life;
– To increase the level of knowledge about lobbying and advocacy in the topic of active citizenship;
– To strengthen the abilities of youth workers to choose, adapt and implement new non-formal education methods for motivate and encourage youth participation to civic life;
– To create space for youth workers to conceive and develop project drafts on the topic of youth participation and civic life;
– To develop cooperation between participating organizations by sharing experience on local, national and international youth policies;
– To foster professional and personal development of youth workers.

Participant Profile
32 youth leaders and youth workers (4 participants per each partner organization) older than 18 years old belonging to partner organizations, involved, interested and motivated to participate in the project.

Participants are people who develop activities in the area of active citizenship and youth participation to democratic life who want to deepen their knowledge about active citizenship, youth participation, democracy and human rights.

Training Course: DocuSpeech Against Hate Speech

Dates: 1 December 2018 – 1 June 2019

Venue: Luxembourg, Armenia

Eligible are 27 participants coming from: Armenia, Georgia, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russian Federation

Application deadline: 30th June 2018

The project “DocuSpeech against Hate Speech” (training course and seminar) on promotion of human rights education through the documentary movies is made by and for the youth workers.

General Description

The project “DocuSpeech against Hate Speech” (training course and seminar) on promotion of human rights education through the documentary movies is made by the youth workers.

We chose the film-making as a strategic tool for the youth workers as more and more in the education of young people are being used media tools to decrease intolerance/hate speech. Film and especially documentary films help us expand our world, introducing us to values, struggles, innovations, and beliefs beyond our daily experience.

Today, the short form documentary has filled a key role in both formal education and non-formal education. One of the strategies that youth workers/educators use short documentary films in a meaningful and compelling way for young people is building social and emotional awareness on issues of intolerance and discrimination.

Meanwhile, despite of existence of the legislative background of protection of minorities, still there is evidence of growing cases of intolerance and discrimination within European society, sometimes even tolerated by the governments, a sad reality highlighted in reports of local/international organisations. Many of the hate speech/intolerance cases reported over the Europe are taking place on the Internet. This means that especially young people are being targeted as main users of the internet.

Our aim is to use the same tool but to promote tolerance instead of hate. The project can become a step-in creation of the tools to decrease the level of aggression and intolerance through the civil society organizations/youth workers not only in the involved countries but also out of boarders of them as the video outcomes of the project will be promoted by all involved organizations.

Objectives of the Project
• To develop the competences of the participants to produce educational video materials to use in youth work to combat hate speech;
• To foster social inclusion especially of the young people with disabilities and fewer opportunities in general;
• To develop the competences of youth workers and youth leaders in making films in various formats;
• To develop non-formal framework for film-making as a tool for transformative learning;
• To promote understanding of the principles of democracy and participation and its influence on young people’s lives;
• To create 7-8 audiovisual tools (will be uploaded also on the SALTO toolbox), with the concept of educational documentary;
• To support the field presence of the European Commission in order to promote the values behind the institution.

Structure
The first activity: training course will take place in Luxembourg on 1-10 December 2018. It will gather 35 youth leaders, youth workers from the mentioned countries. During the first activity will be created educational video materials to use in youth work to combat hate speech.

Homework
During the second activity – seminar (25 May-1 June, 2019) will be analyzed the using of the educational video materials created during the first activity and used at the local projects as a homework. As an outcome of the project the team and the participants will prepare recommendations for the educators/trainers for using effectively video-making in human rights education.
