Training Course Experience the LOVE: Make a better future

Dates: 14-22 September 2019

Venue: Kildu, Estonia

Eligible are 21 participants coming from: Estonia, Greece, Netherlands, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Slovak Republic, Spain, Turkey

Application deadline: 8th August 2019

A training course on self-love and increasing love towards others. We aim to increase youth workers’ feeling of love so that they could carry the love and the love-creating workshops on to their community.

General Description

We aim to create a world where people make decisions based on love, as opposed to hate, revenge, fear, greed, etc.

For this end we wish to increase the deep feeling of love in the youth. There is no point in building the capacities of people who have the wrong motivation for doing things. The love motivation of an entrepreneur will lead to a community of harmony. The wrong motivation tends to cause social injustice and environmental problems. Motivation matters.

The main objective of this project is to equip youth workers with:

1) the attitude of love,
2) knowledge of the workshops/exercises that can be used as tools to increase love to increase the capacities of the partnering organisations,
3) skills for spreading the love in a trustworthy manner. So the overall objective is to build the capacities/skills of youth workers on disseminating love.

Love doesn’t necessarily mean romantic love. Love is a fundamental European value which is the basis for human rights. Increasing love can do wonders to stop the European trend of radicalisation, it works on the root level of people’s consciousness. Increasing love decreases hate, therefore hate speech, radicalisation, etc.

Love is the cornerstone of tolerance. Love is the fundamental feeling that is required to accept-embrace diversity and intercultural and inter-religious dialogues.

We will work with:

  • being in front of other people without wearing a mask
  • speaking from the whole heart and listening with it as well
  • focusing on the sensations in the body
  • forgiving those that need to be forgiven
  • letting go of what needs to be let go
  • the support within the group and more.

We would be especially glad to be able to provide the feeling of love on to youth workers working with (future) entrepreneurs or leadership skills building among the youth or doing the important work of supporting the youth one-on-one in their development in their local community. However, we are open and happy to working with everyone. Everybody wins from self-love.

Larnaca

Training Course: Sport it out!

Dates: 2-9 November 2019

Venue: Larnaca, Cyprus

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Germany, Hungary, Italy, Republic of North Macedonia, Sweden

Application deadline: 1st August 2019

The main aim of our project is to equip youth workers with knowledge and skills on how to use sports and physical activity as tools for increasing active participation and inclusion of young people, with a special focus on those with fewer opportunities.

General Description

Sport activity has enormous potential of social inclusion thanks to its capacity to bring all the people together, regardless of age, gender or social origin. When an individual takes part in sports activities or sport methods they are involved in a multidimensional learning process.

The most obvious dimension is of course the physical learning (how to run, jump, climb, maintain balance, co-ordination, etc.) however there are also a variety of social learning processes taking place (for example learning to be part of a team, to cooperate, to trust, fair-play and so on.)

Compared to the physical side, the social learning dimensions are far more intangible and are harder to recognize. We as educators need to focus on this dimension because it is the social learning elements in sport that can directly respond to the social learning needs of young people.

Participation in sport and active play brings a number of personal, societal and health benefits to young people, especially to those who are marginalized. Raising levels of activity and participation in sports not only improves health outcomes and reduces costs to health services and the wider economy, but can also contribute to a range of positive social outcomes including crime reduction, improved levels of wellbeing and mental health, increased educational attainment and more cohesive communities.

The main aim of our project is to equip youth workers with knowledge and skills on how to use sports and physical activity as tools for increasing active participation and inclusion of young people, with a special focus on those with fewer opportunities.

The objectives of the training:
– To share our realities with the situations about inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities in our communities and different youth work programmes working on it
– To discuss and understand basic concepts, values and principles of inclusion and intercultural learning
– To promote and explore the concepts “sports for all” and “healthy lifestyle” in relation with youth work
– To explore the youth work and youth trainings in connection to inclusion/acceptance and Sport for all!
– To raise competences in organising quality youth work with sport methodology with adequate mental and physical development of beneficiaries, as well as competition and teamwork through sports
– To share different sport methods useful for our youth work in every day work with youngsters mainstream and with fewer opportunities
– To share and understand challenges in implementation of quality sport methods in youth work for inclusion and intercultural acceptance of young people with fewer opportunities

– To raise competences for adaptation of sport methods for NFE/youth work for inclusion and acceptance of young people with fewer opportunities
– To define and develop basic plans for local/national workshops of youth workers and youngsters with using sports as methods for inclusion, that are to be held by our participants in the follow-up phase after the training course
– To establish Community of youth trainers and youth workers for youth sport work for inclusion
