Training Course: StageCraft for Youth Workers

Dates: 3-10 August 2019

Venue: Sluňákov, Horka nad Moravou, Olomouc, Czech Republic

Eligible are 24 participants coming from: Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Spain, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 30th June 2019

Develop advanced communication, presentation and facilitation skills for youth work, with an experienced team combining approaches such as theatre, comedy, storytelling, psychology, sociology, education, music, social & creative community work.

General Description

“StageCraft for Youth Workers” is the second edition, funded by the Erasmus+ programme and promoted by the Czech NGO Vice Versa, of a training format on advanced communication, presentation and facilitation skills development, targeting primarily youth and social workers and educators.

The project is a 7 days residential training which combines approaches such as theatre, comedy, storytelling, psychology, sociology, education, music, social & creative community work.

The project will take place in the Czech Republic, close to the city of Olomouc, in the beautiful ecological centre Sluňákov, from the 3rd to the 10th of August 2019 (travel days included). It will involve 24 participants and 4 trainers from 10 different European countries (Italy, Czech Republic, Greece, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and United Kingdom).

The objectives of the training course are:

• To develop and build on a greater understanding of the presentation and engagement skills and experiences of youth workers;
• To explore and understand the effects of effective presentation and engagement with an audience of young people and in the role of youth worker;
• To gain a greater awareness of the theory behind “Stagecraft” taken from the fields of psychology, sociology, education, theatre and creative community (comedy, music and drama);
• To identify and realise the opportunities to put the skills developed into practice;

A Word on the Approach

The course seeks to develop what we think are the advanced skills – sometimes neglected – of being able to use the environment, our physiology, our body language and the content of our message to make our youth work even more effective. We will draw from applied psychology and from skills-sets used in theatre by professional presenters and comedians, to make the training diverse and exciting.

Participants will have opportunities to reflect on the fact that – as well as expensive and ubiquitous technology – there are many other resources and skills we can use to keep young people engaged, and develop effective relationships with them. Our course will be highly interactive, we will apply each methodology on the spot, and participants will have many chances to challenges themselves in and out of their comfort zones to develop new awareness and skills. Be prepared for some real Stagecraft thrills!

Training Course Youth Goals: A pathway to practical implementation

Dates: 15-22 September 2019

Venue: Mollina (Málaga), Spain

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Austria, Belgium – FL, Belgium – FR, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of North Macedonia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 14th July 2019

The general objective of this training action is to promote the implementation of Youth Goals as a tool for empowerment of European youth entities in the field of youth rights.

General Description

Youth Goals are the gateway to implement the rights approach within youth entities. This training action aims to generate a strategic model for planning activities arising from the collaboration and experience of the participants and with the Youth Goals as a transversal element.

In this twentieth edition of the University, the theme has focused on the concept of “Youth and Justice” within the framework of the triennium that began last year and focuses on SDG 16: “Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions”.

From the last contextualization arises the approach of the proposed training action: Youth Goals are directly linked to a series of inalienable rights of young people and their implementation contributes to guarantee a state of social justice at all levels. Therefore, it is necessary that young people reflect on the best way to incorporate these goals in the development of their activities in a transversal way.

The Youth Goals have an undeniable European perspective, so it is in a transnational forum like the one offered by the University of Youth and Development where a joint reflection can best be reached on which measures of implementation can be built.

Considering that youth organizations have structures and activity models as varied as the interests of young people, this training action is planned as a joint reflection on the application of youth goals in models of youth participation.

The general objective of this training action is to promote the implementation of Youth Goals as a tool for empowerment of European youth entities in the field of youth rights.

The specific objectives to achieve this end are the following:

  • Expand the perspective of the participants on the need to apply the Youth Goals in their performance.
  • Provide the group of participants with the necessary means and networks for the application of the Youth Goals.
  • Accompany the group of participants in the strategic design for the integration of the Youth Goals.
  • Promote the creation of a network of agents of change at European level.

With these objectives we want to achieve through our training action results based on the training of young people and youth entities that transcend the limits of the training itself and can be disseminated to other interested European youth organizations.

To this end, a pedagogical approach has been designed that crystallizes into a practical guide of Youth Goals implementation models and that put together collective reflection with technical resources.

The activities that constitute this formative action will lead the participants of a general conceptualization of the Youth Goals to a particular creation of practical models of implementation.

Likewise, the launching of a collaborative network to share good practices regarding the field application of the resulting models of this practical guide is proposed.

Application deadline: 20th June 2019

A 4 day intensive course, Using non-formal learning methodologies, the training led by experts, will share information about The importance of soil protection & management – Learning about the Voluntary Guidelines for Sustainable Soil Management

General Description

CCIVS is partner of the Soil4Life project coordinated by Legambiente. The SOIL4LIFE project, realized with the contribution of the European Commission (Life), intends to promote the sustainable and efficient use of the soil and its resources in Italy and in Europe. For this reason the partners involved in the project, are engaged in carrying out information and awareness raising activities and in promoting interventions, including regulatory ones, which are essential to curb the consumption of this non-renewable natural resource.

Process

The Training will be a 4 day intensive course, with arrivals on the 14 and departures on the 19 October 2019.

Using non-formal learning methodologies, the training led by experts, will share information about the SOIL4LIFE project, including:

– The importance of soil protection & management

– Learning about the Voluntary Guidelines for Sustainable Soil Management (VGSSM)

The proposed agenda can be found here

The Training will take place during the CCIVS Global Human Rights week organised by CCIVS, during which one day will be dedicated to the actions of the training and work of CCIVS members towards Climate Justice.

The training seeks to prepare Soil Ambassadors who may then take the information gained during the Training course and support with the implementation of actions in their sending organisations projects during 2020.

Participants will learn how to share information concerning SOIL4LIFE with their local projects, by using methodologies that train the trainer. They will learn how to communicate, how to use the communication tools which are in place and how to ensure follow up in their local projects.

During the training the participants will collectively build a model to work on soil protection and conservation, which they can then adapt to their local reality and implement in their home countries. They will share this model on return with their sending organisations and will work to develop and implement the model during the local action.

As a result, each organisation will be requested to implement at least 1 local campaign, which focuses on the importance of soil protection – this activity will be highlighted through the global communication campaign.

CCIVS will coordinate the writing of a manifesto, the content of which will include an overview of the state of soil protection and management, a call to action and a pledge from civil society organisations.

The creation of the manifesto will start with the Training Course, participating organisations will be asked to give their feedback on what they would like to see on a manifest.

Post Training and Support Structure

A blog space will be created for the participants to share questions and updates about what they are doing once they arrive back home – in this way they can mutually support each other, and any questions they cannot answer will be given support by the experts (trainers, CCIVS and Legambiente). They will also be able to request skype calls and send emails for any questions or doubts they may have.

Costs

 

This project is financed by the Erasmus+ Youth Programme.

Earth, Wind & Fire is an holistic, magical and energetic project aimed at improving skills in the field of emotional education and personal empowerment so that they can stimulate and value the young people with whom they work.

General Description

This project is addressed to participants coming from 10 countries: Ukraine, Armenia, Romania, Czech Republic, Poland, Italy, Greece, Hungary, Croatia and Spain. Each country will provide 2 participants that will be selected according to their professional profile and motivation.

We will use techniques of natural healing, personal balance, emotional stimulation, creative development, empowerment in talents and education in values from ancestral cultures, holistic techniques and personal growth, especially those linked to the countryside and nature, to create an active, integrated and constructive youth.

These techniques share the same principles and objectives; connect the individual with their innate abilities and provide them with confidence and determination to achieve their goals, from mindfulness to emotional coaching, through Reiki, Kundalini Yoga or Sound Healing.

The main objectives are:

  •  Create a work guide that includes tools for emotional education and youth empowerment.
  •  Motivate and increase the satisfaction of the trainers by facilitating techniques of
    personal growth, relaxation, concentration and self-help that allow them to achieve
    their personal balance and emotional stability and allow them to improve their working conditions and those of the young people with whom they work.
  •  Improve the skills of educators by equipping them with tools to work and promote emotional education and youth empowerment with their students in order to promote diversity and transmit the fundamental common values of our society, especially to young people with difficult access, and avoid the violent radicalization of young people.
  •  Promote youth development in rural, depopulated areas and regions where they suffer economic, social and cultural difficulties and reach marginalized young people, providing them with tools for their inclusion.
  •  To improve the quality of trainers’ work by increasing their skills and abilities to address the needs of disadvantaged people in terms of sensitivity, empathy and understanding.

The project is aimed at all those people interested in personal growth and awareness, all those who believe that a more complete and healthy human being can be developed, to all those who want to know holistic techniques of personal balance, to all those who believe in nature, in energy, in spirituality, in feminism, in emotional development and in education as a way of life.

In this project we want to give priority to participants with economic, social, geographical, cultural, physical or health difficulties. One of the main values in this project is the motivation of participants, as well as integration and inclusion of people with disadvantages.
