A training course for young people who took part in European Solidarity Corps/Erasmus+ Youth Programme projects and want to share their European experiences with their peers.

General Description

You did a volunteering activity or took part in another European solidarity Corps activity, participated in a youth exchange or organised a youth initiative? Probably you gained lots of experiences and got to know Europe from an exciting perspective. Are you interested in staying involved and sharing your experiences with others?

If you can imagine telling other young people about your European experiences and encouraging them to try suchlike, we invite you warmly to become a EuroPeer! EuroPeers are young people who have already taken part in an European Solidarity Corps/Erasmus+ Youth Programme project. They share their experiences and inform other young people (their peers) about these opportunities and other ways to go abroad. This can be done in different ways and in the framework of various events.

During this international training course you will learn how to organise different types of EuroPeer events and how to share your European experience effectively with your peers.

You will attend workshops on:

  • opportunities for young people to participate in Europe
  • Mobility programmes in Europe
  • Project management and PR activities
  • Communicating the European idea.

You will also have time to develop your first own EuroPeer activity. At the end of the training you’ll get the chance to implement your activity (together with other participants) on the ENCORE event, a networking event for Belgian organizations working with international volunteers. You’ll have the opportunity to talk about a variety of topics related to European volunteering experiences and you’ll help the next generation of volunteers to have a better experience, thanks to your feedback!

During the training there will also be a Social Media team consisting of 4 people, they will be responsible for the whole social dimension of the training to the online world. If you’d like to gain media experiences, you can apply for this team.

It will give you a slightly different experience of the whole training. This team will be guided by a very enthusiastic youth leader.

The Training course “Wemen” provides visual & artistic competences to youth workers and youth leaders to support and motivate the cause of gender equity and equality through the use of creative digital tools.

General Description

Gender equality has a universally recognized benefit for people. However, our visual references (media, advertisements, movies, …), are still full of sexist stereotypes and vividly illustrate the depth of stereotypes permeating our contemporary civilization. Yet everyone have much to gain equality of all people, genders and sexes.

Our workshop in Segovia, Spain, from the 22th to the 28th of March 2020, will invite youth workers and artists to lend their support to involve youth for gender equity. We have chosen to address this topic through the use of creative digital tools because images are a powerful tool for reflection and call to action, and digital media has the widest impact reach.

Objectives:

This project will offer professionals and young artists from different European contexts a privileged opportunity to unite, in Spain, their perception and their actions in favor of mobilization in favor of gender equality. This action-training also has the ambition of:

  • Gathering equal proportions of young workers, visual artists, gender activists and theorists from different parts of Europe so they can compare their personal and professional experiences on the influence of visual arts in the perception of Genders.
  • Making them produce webcomics that illustrate their learning outcomes visually and digitally, they are easily transmitted to the largest number of people.
  • Getting them together to develop reflection and new training tools to address these social issues with the youth and their community.
  • Encouraging them to form networks of international contacts and practice other languages suitable for developing their personal and professional skills;
  • Providing new competences to youth workers and youth leaders to support and manage work with diverse young groups, as well as competences to foster gender equality, social inclusion, European values and active youth participation;
  • Developing strategic plans for action in forms of follow-up activities that will be run by participants with the support of partner organisations back in their local communities and countries.

Participants profile

We are searching for the participation of animators, educators, youth workers, youth leaders, volunteers, artists, sociologists and activists aims to develop the quality of youth work, to strengthen cooperation between the youth sector and the labor market and to support and develop policy youth based on knowledge and research.

They may have a strong motivation and open-minded attitude; and also they should be over 18 years old, able to comfortably communicate in English and residents in the involved countries.

WeMen will bring together 13 men and women in equal proportions of youth workers, visual artists and gender activists from different parts of Europe: France, Poland, Bulgaria and Spain.

Training Course: Acroconnection

Dates: 17-30 June 2020

Venue: France

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: France, Germany, Poland, Slovenia

Application deadline: 29th February 2020

The workshop “AcroConnection” aims to explore how partner acrobatics and social circus can contribute to the empowerment of disadvantaged groups and the promotion of European values.

General Description

The project aims to involve youth workers and artists from various parts of Europe as well as local residents, to exchange and develop educational tools using acrobatics and social circus as a source of inspiration and encouragement.

We want to empower young people through movement and play, remind them of their potential and the opportunities of their environment and show them how to become active agents in their personal lives and in their development as members of their community.

In circus and acrobatics, dialogue, discussion and exchange of experiences, challenges and perspectives in the work of participants, we actively explore and explore our own potentials and limits of youth work.

Together, participants will explore art and culture as powerful agents producing knowledge and promoting the exchange of ideas and experiences, and having an impact on society. With intense training, plenty of space for interpersonal and intercultural dialogue, we want to reach and sensitize participants to social circus, focusing on partner acrobatics, stage presence and public awareness, as a tool empowerment and positive social change among youth.

Partner acrobatics associated with social circus theater drills provide access to social, emotional, cognitive and physical experiences as well as self-assessment and self-organization, autonomy, goal acquisition, solidarity, self-esteem, physical well- being, communication and adaptability.

Theater and clown exercises allow participants to develop essential skills such as stage presence, public awareness and openness to connect to their own vulnerability and sensitivity, and offer a fun way to international participants and locals to connect.

Training Course Time Travellers: The European Perspective

Dates: 15-23 May 2020

Venue: Ključ, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Eligible are 30 participants coming from: Albania, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Kosovo*, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Spain, Turkey

Application deadline: 1st April 2020

The training aims at transferring a methodology to implement and strengthen youth work in the field of remembrance. It builds on the principals of living memories by putting participants into their own and genuine historical perspective.

General Description

The training aims to deconstruct one of the sources of nationalism and racism, which is the concept of national history as provided in the framework of most curricula in European countries nowadays.

The training course “Time Travellers – The European Perspective” aims at transferring a methodology to implement and strengthen youth work in the field of remembrance and commemoration. It builds on the principals of living memories by putting young participants into the center of their own and genuine historical perspective and to create a personal and a local context of historical experience.

In result national history, which is in many cases also the history of living conflicts, retreats and personal history becomes the defining angle. This training course is aimed to transfer a large number of non-formal methods, which we have developed over the course of time and activities. We will introduce participants and their organisation to the different approved methods, techniques and activities, as well as means of dissemination and exploitations of our results.

The ultimate aim is to motivate and equip the participants to apply these tools in their own local and regional environment with their youth and to promote the principles of peaceful remembrance. Thereby they can support dialogue in their own societies and an atmosphere of understanding and last but not least a renewed curiosity for often underestimated topics of history: social development, emancipation, human rights and European common values.

The Training course will take place in Ključ, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Participants should be mainly from youth organisations that want to improve their profile through new approaches in the field of remembrance work and anti-racism trainings and youth work in intercultural contexts.

Participants will have a personal experience of the former war torn Bosnia and Herzegovina. They will learn new skills of research borrowed from social sciences that improve their experiences in needs assessment of future project. They will learn the methodology of “time travelling” into personal and local history.

The impact on the local surrounding will be that of recognition and respect. The organisations will profit from new ways of approaching anti-racism and trainings against xenophobia. Participants will be introduced to new applications and methods to improve the visibility of their own rural surrounding.

Costs

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Accommodation and food

All costs are covered by the organizers.

Travel reimbursement

The travel costs will be reimbursed as follows:

  • Albania, Czech Republic, Kosovo*, The Republic of North Macedonia, Serbia = 180 EUR per person

As a group we will explore the power of games and their use in various settings. Do they build trust? Solve conflicts? Question ones self? Create a group? Entertain? Connect? Be a tool for sharing? Transforming? Growth? Working through difficult topics?

General Description

The Game is On! A 10-day training & reasearch on physical games and when, where and how to play them.

Jonglirium e.V. is a german nonprofit applying creative methods such as circus, theater and music to work with disadvantaged youth and promoting workshops and trainings for adults. This time we teamed up with game master & mistress Richard Kimberley (From the Playns) and Anne Merlin (Nomadways).

The project is aimed at people who work with games in some form (in social, cultural and artistic settings) and wish to explore and develop more.

What will happen in this training?

As a group we will explore the power of games and their use in various settings. How do they build trust? Solve conflicts? Question ones self? Create a group? Entertain? Connect? Be a tool for sharing? Transforming? Growth? Working through difficult topics? Or simply for fun?

  • We will play a lot!
  • We will share a lot. Our knowledge and our thoughts…
  • We will explore, deconstruct and analyse games of various types: Whats behind the games?
  • What is the structure of a game? What is play?
  • We will learn and practice leading games.
  • We will eventually create and customise our own games for various situations.

The training sessions will be lead by the two trainers. Find out more about the trainers here! There will be also free time to do whatever together (there a 3 kajaks, lots of bikes and a beautifull surrounding with hills, lakes and cliffs to climb).

We have space for guests, sleeping in tents on GutAlaune – the space where we will live and work together. To share the workload, like cleaning and helping the cook and we will divide these tasks among ouselves.

The location

The project will happen from 2nd (arrival) to 13th of june (departure) at GutAlaune just outside of Halle (Saale) Germany next to the river Saale. It’s a project and living space just outside the city that we’re setting up since the beginning of 2016 – so some stuff is a little improvised. Check out the video of a 2017 circus training at the venue

Sleeping will be in your own tents so please bring tents, sleeping bags, isolation mats and whatever you need to feel comfy outdoors. If you have trouble arranging this or you can’t fit it in your luggage contact us ahead of time. We have a hang out space in case of bad weather, but we hope to be mostly outside.

There is an outside kitchen and lounge area, outside showers and toilets and there is a river right infront the space as well to cool down from the heat of the training. We will have a cook preparing delicious vegetarian meals for us and will divide tasks to help with cutting, cleaning, the dishes and such.

Important note: We don’t have enough WIFI here for big groups – so make sure you have roaming or get a german Sim Card with internet if you want to stay connected.
