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

This seminar will bring NGOs working on capacity building for educators from different backgrounds in order to meet together and reflect & review how to strengthen our capacities in human rights education and intercultural learning
