Training Course: Countering the Radicalisation of Young People (German speaking training course)

Dates: 13-19 October 2019

Venue: Ev.Jugendbildungs- und Begegnungsstätte Hirschluch, Germany

Eligible are 20 participants coming from: Austria, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg

Application deadline: 20th September 2019

ATTENTION: German speaking seminar!

The fact that young people develop differently from social expectations is normal from a developmental and sociological point of view. During the training course we want to deal with the radical attitudes of young people.

General Description

Background: The fact that young people behave differently from social expectations is normal in terms of developmental psychology and sociology.

They question what is socially recognized, distance themselves from current social conditions, and embark on a search for their own identity and life plan. This questioning of the status quo by young people turns out to be more or less “radical”.

In the context of youth work, a distinction between security policy, preventive and educational aspects is all the more necessary. As with many other social issues, youth work must not be allowed to be taken up simply as a duty. Rather, youth work must clearly focus on its pedagogical work, which in principle is directed at all children and young people and young adults.

Develop an attitude: During the training, the experts work out and reflect on the causes, handling and effects of radicalisation tendencies among young people and agree on an attitude with which they want to counter them.

Learning methods: Participants should become familiar with methods and strategies that focus on communicating the basic common values of our society. The aim of these is to counteract radicalisation tendencies among young people and to avoid them.

Exchange experiences: The participants’ many years of experience from their work in the youth field make it possible to include different perspectives and problems. There will be room for the exchange of current developments, challenges and examples of good practice.

New project ideas can be developed and joint opportunities for action and shaping can be expanded.

Involving young people: The views and opinions of young people are essential and must be perceived first and foremost. That is why we follow an unusual training approach and will include it in our work processes and discussions in order to enable an ongoing dialogue at eye level between young people and specialists.

Improving the impact of Non Formal Education (NFE), principles and methods in creating empowerment opportunities for young people as real actors of the society (from local to Europe).

General Description

Why this Training Course?

– To stimulate the participants to feel and reflect about the power of non-formal education (NFE) by experimenting different kind of non-formal educational methods.
– To analyze the role and reception of NFE in our different countries within a common Europe.
– To discover and debate the European strategy of NFE.

– To fight against the growing consuming approaches towards young people in the non-formal education field.
– To explore meanings, roles and complementarities of different educational approaches and methods (formal, non-formal, informal).
– To reconsider daily youth work practices.
– To understand the principles of program building and NFE within Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

How it will be done?

In order to have real impacts, the participants experience an innovative approach, using a full immersion in the experiential learning cycle: doing/ feeling, reflecting, transferring…

To have profound impact, we need to go further than classical running of training courses. The participants are encouraged to really build their own training and learning process, supported by a fine tuned pedagogical programme. We consider that this is the condition to understand the real power of NFE.

The pedagogical process

A fundamental flow during the training is based upon:
Experiencing: different educational settings, different non formal education methods (role play, simulation exercise…)
Reflecting: on the methods and its impacts, on the power and limits of NFE, on building a pedagogical process…
Transferring: to the own reality of participants, in order to improve ways of working with young people
Sharing: different perceptions, current situations and experiences.

Developing: the building capacity of the participants, by including them in the decision process of the project designing (participants will decide some sessions they feel they need to have) but also in the implementation of the program (‘Power to the People’ moments).

Participants should be at least 18 years old and should have a good level of English.
