Training Course Equality: NOT optional

Dates: 16-24 September 2018

Venue: Sępólno Krajeńskie and Toruń, Poland

Eligible are 16 participants coming from: Estonia, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Spain

Application deadline: 30th August 2018

With this training course we wish to remind youth workers that in order to be effective, fair, inclusive and contribute to creation of society with greater equality, gender dimension has to be taken into account during any youth work activity.

General Description

ATTENTION! This will bring together 26 youth workers, educators from Latvia, Hungary, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Estonia, Italy, Croatia and Poland. With this call we are only looking for additional participants from Poland(3), Latvia(3), Hungary(3), Italy(3), Estonia(3) and Spain(1).

Youth workers need to realize that gender inequality is not something far away from their reality, but male-dominated, patriarchal and hetero-normative principles consciously or unconsciously influence all of us and young people in particular in their identity-making process.

Young people often find it difficult to fit in traditional gender perceptions and roles and neither of the genders benefits from this robust system. Youth workers should play more active role to support young people to deal with these challenges. That’s why the objectives of this TC have been defined as follow:

-Developing awareness and understanding about various concepts related to gender and how it connects to promoting common values in Europe and daily youth work reality.
-Understanding the mechanisms of discrimination and violence and how it affects individuals and society – with special focus on gender and how it affects young people.
-Sharing realities when it comes to respect for diversity and inclusion in the represented countries and regions paying special attention to aspects of gender equality and violence against women.

-Exploring role of youth workers and power of NFL to promote positive social change and developing skills of applying NFL tools to fight against violence and discrimination based on gender.
-Planning and implementing concrete follow-up activities to promote gender equality, diversity and inclusion at local level.

Egypt The Sphinx

Training Course: Step Up for Inclusion

Dates: 16-23 September 2018

Venue: Cairo, Egypt

Eligible are 20 participants coming from: Egypt, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania

Application deadline: 27th August 2018

This project is a multi-activity event aimed to explore all the possible positive aspects of sport for developing intercultural acceptance and inclusion.

General Description

The first event is a training course for youth leader and youth workers and will take place 16-23 September 2018 in Cairo, Egypt. The second event is a youth exchange and will take 14-23 February 2019 in Poronin, Poland. Applicants will have to committ to participate in both events.

With this call we are looking for 3 participants aged 18+ y.o – youth leaders/youth workers per country in the Training Course in Egypt (total 20 pax).
The participants of the TC will be later obliged to attend the Youth Exchange in Poronin in order to apply the methodologies created in the first part. The youth exchange will then bring 7 participants aged 18-30 per country (total 42 pax).

We believe that through interpersonal interactions with people of different cultures, traditions and religions we can better understand one another, break down prejudice and empower youth.

This Training Course aims to explore sports as a tool for unification and team building in the field of youth work. Together we will come up with methods using a non-formal education approach (sports) to create a manual for youth workers who are looking to teach intercultural communication and diversity in a fun and engaging way.

Youth workers from Europe and Northern African countries will gather together to not only engage in sporting activities to test the methodologies but also contribute their youth work experience to a bigger vision- access to inclusion based sporting methodologies for all youth.

Georgian Temple

Training Course: Be Active, Be Empowered!

Dates: 22-30 September 2018

Venue: Bakuriani, Georgia

Eligible are 26 participants coming from: Armenia, Austria, Georgia, Germany, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Ukraine

Application deadline: 31st August 2018

Erasmus+ Training Course for youth workers and young leaders interested in exploring the topic of active youth participation and participatory oriented projects.

General Description

Participation is a crucial concept when it comes to youth work, especially in the context of working with youngsters at risk of exclusion. As youth workers, we all want our participants to be actively involved, purposeful and driven, as well as ready to take responsibility of their own learning process and its outcomes to a high extent.

However, those expectations do not always fit the realities and we are constantly challenged to see our participants being passive and demotivated. The risk in this kind of situation is to “blame” the participants and get frustrated that they do not appreciate our educational offer.

In consequence, many youth workers keep using their standardize toolboxes and choose the “easier way” in which the flow of knowledge should be only from the trainers to participants.
However, we choose to believe that the true answer lies in re-tailoring our own approach to participation and youth work and to think out of the box when designing our project.

The only way to be able to this, however, is to deeply understand the very concept of participation and learning. Without discussing the basic concepts and defining our own theoretical and methodological standpoints, we will not be able to truly understand and implement participatory oriented activities that enhance social inclusion.

Project objectives
1. Exploring theories and practice of par icipatory oriented projects in youth work, especially in the context of socially vulnerable groups (such as youth with diverse cultural background)
2. Providing participants with an indepth understanding of basic concepts related to participation (participation factors) and help them reflect how those factors can be used as a basis for designing and implement ing participatory or iented youth activities
3. Reflecting upon the connection between participation, inclusion, and active citizenship
4. Creating a ready to use tool box on participation and youth work

Participants profile
– Youth workers and young leaders f rom NGOs working with young people at risk of exclusion (preferably with youth with diverse cultural background)
– interested in exploring the concept of participation and learning how to create particiaptory oriented projects for their beneficiaries
– Motivated to take part in creating the tool kit on participation
– Ready to implement follow-up projects based on the tools and methods presented during the course
– Being able to communicate in English fluently

General Description

This is part of a workshop series with the overall objective of increasing the quality of the work done by trainers in the youth field. This is to be achieved through the development of youth trainer´s competences, in particular educational tool experimentation, adaptation, design, and creation; as well as insight enhancement of the participants (the ability to reflect on one´s own practice, be conscious and aware of one´s own youth work practice).

Games and play are a focus of this particular workshop and their development will be pursued while exploring the practice, potential, and the limitations of youth work with and about refugees.

The participants of this workshop will also have a chance to apply for the ‘IC Product Jam’, which is planned to be organised between 21-26 January 2019. During the ‘Product Jam’, participants in teams from 3 workshops (creative writing; visuals and comics; games and play) gather and develop tools to be used in youth work with and about refugees where skills from the three workshops will be merged.

All activities of the Insightrainer Creatrainer process will be accompanied by an experienced researcher with the key research question ‘what helps facilitate trainers to gain and implement new skills?’ The research will not only provide a feedback loop throughout the year but also will sharpen the documentation process and support participants’ conscious learning process.

Objectives:
In line with the overall objective, the specific objectives of this Workshop are:
– To become acquainted with the design process of games and play activities,
– To gain a theoretical overview of different types of games,
– To practice developing an educational game or a playful activity,
– To explore the potential and limitations of play in youth work,
– To reflect on the educational role of games in contexts where language creates a barrier,
– To increase abilities in “designing meaningful play experiences”,
– To get information and share practices on the work done with, for and about young refugees,
– To reflect on individual learning processes and support the Youthpass process.

Profile of participants / recommended for:
Non-formal educators in the youth field, the trainers’ affiliated with the various National Agencies of the Erasmus+ Programme and SALTO Centres, the members of the trainers’ pool of the Council of Europe’s Youth Department.
The call also welcomes applicants who are teachers and willing to increase their skills in order to support young refugees with whom they are working with.

This project anticipates developing competences of youth workers to communicate in a nonviolent way – acknowledging own and others’ needs, recognising and expressing emotions, building peaceful relations with young people, and co-workers.

General Description

This project anticipates developing competences of youth workers to communicate in a nonviolent way – acknowledging own and others’ needs, recognising and expressing emotions, building peaceful relations with young people, and co-workers.

The Theatre of the Giraffe TC aims to have impact in two main areas:

* develop emphatic attitude, by building a group ready to support each other, where participants will share their challenges, contact with their emotions and needs, go through experienced frustrations, and approach them as a resource for learning
* improve/ acquire knowledge and skills in nonviolent communication as a tool to deal with similar situations in the future.

Programme will be based on two main methodologies.

The frame for non-formal and informal learning will be created with methods and techniques from applied drama. From building a safe and emphatic environment, you will be invited to become more aware and familiar with your body, and later encouraged to take roles, explore various desires, and improvise in search for different strategies in the communication process, creating a forum theatre. The content to practise in that frame will be based on the Nonviolent Communication method.

Participants will discover the meaning of needs and emotions for reaching a satisfactory compromise in a conflict situations. Using drama, you will practise the skills to form observations free from opinions, recognise and express needs, and to construct compromises in order to move forward in a peaceful way.

The project will gather participants from: Portugal/ Spain/ Romania/ Italy/ Germany/ France/ Estonia/ Lithuania/ FYROM/ Bulgaria/ Slovenia and Poland.

With this call we are looking only for participants from Estonia, Germany, Lithuania and Slovenia to fill in empty places. There are 2 vacancies per each of the country mentioned.
