Visit Domžale - Kavarna Hiša na Travniku

Training Course: MoMeant to Be

Dates: 19-28 September 2020

Venue: Hostel Hiša na travniku, Slovenia

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Czech Republic, France, Greece, Italy, Latvia, Romania, Slovenia

Application deadline: 20th July 2020

MoMeant to Be is an 8-day training which aims to introduce and explore principles of “Mindfulness” to experiment with practical and fun tools and techniques that can be readily used in daily life, creative work and in the other situations and places too.

General Description

We invite you to be, move, play, observe, listen, share, explore, experiment, challenge ourselves, learn from within and from each other, get to know new people & ways & attitudes, and create this experience together.

Training own awareness, acceptance and sense of presence can improve the quality of our days and the things we do. We will learn how to be present and to tune and respond properly to the needs of the diverse people and situations we are working with.

Why Mindfulness?

Mindfulness develops the skill to bring one’s attention to the present moment on purpose and serves to strengthen one’s capacity for stress resistance, kindness and compassion both in personal and professional life. Science-based methods allow participants in training to experience visceral, ‘in the moment’ practices within an overtly reflective and supportive environment.

Furthermore, mindfulness cultivates one’s skill to welcome and observe the incoming inputs from inside and outside without attachment, not to be dragged or manipulated by emotions and upcoming thoughts. It also represents a more fitting response to the complexity of human relations in which youth workers operate and thereby help to preserve the integrity of process-based practice. Enhanced concentration and clarity brings more creativity into trainers’ daily work and supports learners’ success.

Who is this training for?

The training was designed for youth workers & volunteers and other people who work with people, that want to refresh their skills and attitudes to their days, to other people, to work and to the world.

We aim to have overall number of 25 participants from Czech Republic, Slovenia, Italy, Romania, Latvia, Greece and France. The participants must be over 18 years and have a communicative level of English language, so that they can participate fully in a program that will be in English.

This training is for you, if you…

  • want to explore and experiment with specific tools from non formal fields (body based methods, theater, movement, dance, nature based methods, meditation, arts, creative expression),
  • want to use and imply the learned skills in your professional work with people,
  • are open to sharing your own skills and learning the skills with others,
  • are motivated and willing to commit to work during the whole duration of the project (preparation, training course, follow-up activities)

What we will be doing?

  • collecting new inputs and inspiration that renew motivations to act with commitment and new ideas.
  • refreshing curiosity and playfulness in approaching your work
  • improving your trainers’ and personal skills to be more efficient, adaptable, responding to issues and demands in your work and daily life.
  • widening your perspectives and points of view to see new opportunities, create new patterns, and avoid situations of stalemate when working with people with different cultural background.
    gathering specific tools from non formal fields (theater, dance, meditation, creative expression) that are not easily accessible for all the youth workers.

By training your own awareness, acceptance, sense of initiative you can improve the quality of your being and of your actions. We wish to support you in finding ways to be more resilient and empathic through mindfulness – by developing your skills to be fully present, listen, accept and act, by equipping you with mindfulness based tools that you can later on use in your practice.

Working methods

In the 8 days together, we will be, move, play, observe, listen, share, explore, experiment, challenge ourselves, learn from within and from each other, get to know new people & ways & attitudes, and create this experience together. We will be exploring the principles and techniques of various mindfulness-based methodologies. We will be learning by doing.

The dramaturgy of the program, the red line connecting above mentioned activities, uses a combination of meditation, body awareness, mindful movement and exploration of patterns of behaviour, thinking, feeling and action. The course will also have a strong component based on the sharing of ideas, opinions, experiences and best practices, so if you consider joining the training, start thinking of some activities, you would like to propose. Also, bear in mind that previous experiences with mindfulness practices are not needed to attend the training.

Training Course Youth@Work. Building Ecoliteracy: Preparing European young people for the green labour market

Dates: 5-11 October 2020

Venue: Santander, Spain

Eligible are 30 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, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom

Application deadline: 6th July 2020

The training course aims to prepare and inspire professionals working with and for young people to bring an ecological focus in their labour market orientation projects.

General Description

The training course, proposed by the Youth@Work Partnership on Youth Employability and Entrepreneurship of Erasmus+ National Agencies, aims to prepare and inspire professionals working with and for young people to bring an ecological focus in their labour market orientation projects.

In order to equip young people for the green labour market, we are organising a training course for professionals who work for and with young people. With this training, we want to prepare the participants to guide the young people they work with along their employability path, with a special focus on those competences that they will need to acquire for fulfilling the requirements of the increasing number of green jobs available.

Context:

According to the European Commission: ‘It is easy to consider green jobs as the preserve of eco-industries. After all, employment in this sector has grown by 20% since 2000 and now provides 4.2 million jobs. But the growing importance of sustainability has reached all sectors. Many industries have realised that investing in resource efficiency, energy efficiency, renewable energy, waste and water management actually saves them money by being less reliant on primary materials and imports.’

In order to be prepared to fulfil the demanding duties of a green job, it’s not only technical and scientific knowledge that is needed, but also eco-literacy, eco-consciousness, creativity, and many other traits and competences which are not taught or trained in formal education institutions. This leaves young people unprepared to fulfil the requirements needed for the growing green labour sector.

Our project aims to fill this gap.

Objectives:

  • Train 30 professionals (youth workers, trainers, youth leaders/change-makers and policy-makers) on guiding the young people they work with along their employability path, with a special focus on competences needed in the green labour sector;
  • Analyse the current trends of the labour market and explore the new competences that will be needed to cover the demands of the future green job market;
  • Provide participants with a wider understanding of the ecological systems and raise awareness of the urge for preparing young generations for future challenges;
  • Promote youth work and non-formal education as tools to develop the competences that young people will need in the future green labour market;
  • Provide professionals and young people with methods and tools in order to improve youth employability and inspire green innovation;
  • Create a network of youth professionals having a specific interest in and motivation to further cooperate on initiatives connected with the green labour market.

Methods:

We will use a combination of formal and non-formal learning methods, the non-formal ones being the dominant methods. The methodologies that we will apply will require a high involvement from participants.

It will be experiential learning, as well, meaning that participants will experience themselves some of the methodologies and techniques that they then will be able to apply with the young people they work with.

We have planned enough reflection time for the learning to sink in, as well as feedback time for the trainers to be able to adapt the programme to the participants’ needs as required.

The Youth Goals were defined by young people and policy makers and should now be put into action at the local level. This event aims on promoting the goals and help youth workers understand what they are and how they can be used to motivate youngsters.

General Description

The youth goals were defined by young people and policy makers during the last cycle of the Structured Dialogue (now known as the Youth Dialogue). The Youth Goals should now be put into concrete action at the local level.

The training event You go Youth Goals aims to promote the goals and help youth workers to better understand what they are and how they can be used to motivate young people to get active. It is also a great opportunity to use the European Solidarity Corps to get young people to become more active and work towards these goals. Therefore, this training will also focus on the exchange of good practices and learn how to best use the Solidarity Corps to do so.

The training will mainly be focused on understanding what the Youth Goals are and how to use them to inspire projects and motivate young people to get active. For this we will be alternating between knowledge building and knowledge sharing modules, as well as practical exercises that aim on better understanding how to develop projects around this topic.

In order to assure the quality of the training event, we intend on collaborating with youth researchers from the University of Luxembourg, as well as the Luxembourgish Youth Delegates for the Youth Dialogue (formerly known as the Structured Dialogue).

Additional Program elements

Free walking tour
For participants arriving on Friday morning or early afternoon, we will be offered a free 90 min walking tour to discover the city.

Welcome Dinner and Networking event
The first evening, participants will have the opportunity to mingle and network around a walking dinner in Esch-sur-Alzette.

Welcome and intro event
The formal programme of the training event will start with a welcoming event, where participants will be offered an introduction to the event by the host organisation and followed by a presentation and discussion by a guest speaker. We are intending on partnering up with several other local organisations working on this topic to also offer participants a better understanding of the origin and purpose of the youth goals.

Winery tour and Schengen visit
The second evening will be dedicated to visit a winery in Schengen, followed by a wine tasting event and a dinner. Schengen is mostly known for donating its name to the Schengen Agreement, an European Agreement that introduced the free mobility in the European Union.

Dinner in the city and cultural event
The last evening will be dedicated to a cultural event with dinner in Luxembourg city.

Training Course: IMPROdigious

Dates: 5-14 May 2020

Venue: Egio, Greece

Eligible are 25 participants coming from: Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Slovenia, Spain

Application deadline: 20th March 2020

A 8-day training course which aims to introduce and explore principles of “improvisation” and experiment with practical and fun tools and techniques that can be readily used in daily life, creative work and in the other situations and places too.

General Description

We invite you to be, move, play, observe, listen, share, challenge ourselves, learn from within and from each other, get to know new people & ways & attitudes, and create this experience together.

Let’s explore and experiment together with activities and methods which help us to tune in into the unfolding moment and cultivate our ability to improvise.

IMPROdigious is an 8-day training course which aims to introduce and explore principles of “improvisation” and experiment with practical and fun tools and techniques that can be readily used in daily life, creative work and in the other situations and places too. Training own awareness, acceptance and sense of initiative can improve the quality of our days and the things we do. We will learn how to jump into the unknown and to respond properly to the needs of the diverse people and situations we are working with.

Why improvisation?

Improvisation serves to strengthen one’s confidence in himself and in his skills and abilities. It allows participants in training to experience visceral, ‘in the moment’ practice within an overtly reflective and supportive environment. Furthermore, improvisation encourages one to actively seek the unfamiliar, rather than simply learn to cope with it. It also represents a more fitting response to the complexity of human relations in which youth workers operate and thereby help to preserve the integrity of process-based practice.

Who is this training for?

The training was designed for youth workers, volunteers, activists, trainers and other people who work with people, that want to refresh their skills and attitudes to their days, to other people, to work and to the world.

We aim to have an overall number of 25 participants from the following countries:

Greece, Italy, Estonia, Spain, France, Denmark, Czech Republic, Slovenia and Iceland.

The participants must be over 18 years and have a communicative level of English language, so that they can participate fully in a program that will be in English.

This training is for you, if you…

  •  want to explore and experiment with specific tools from non formal artistic fields (theatre, dance, creative expression),
  •  want to use and imply the learned skills in your professional work with people,
  •  are open to sharing your own skills and learning the skills with others,
  •  are motivated and willing to commit to work on the objectives of the training course and participate in the whole duration of the project (preparation, training course, follow-up activities).

What will you be doing? During the training you will be:

  •  collecting new inputs and inspiration that renew motivations to act with commitment and new ideas.
  •  refreshing curiosity and playfulness in approaching your work.
  •  improving your trainers’ skills to be more efficient, adaptable, responding to issues and demands in your work.
  •  widening your perspectives and points of view to see new opportunities, create new patterns, and avoid situations of stalemate when working with people with different cultural background.
  •  gathering specific tools from non formal artistic fields (theatre, dance, creative expression) that are not easily accessible for all the youth workers.

By training your own awareness, acceptance, sense of initiative you can improve the quality of your actions. We wish to support you in finding ways to more efficient and creative approach through improvisation – by developing your skills to be fully present, listen, accept and act, by equipping you with new improv based tools that you can later on use in your practice.

Working methods

We will be exploring the principles and techniques of various improvisation-based methodologies. From theatre improvisation and contact improvisation activities, going into more subtler improvisation with rhythm, music and dance, closing with creative storytelling.

The dramaturgy of the program, the red line connecting above mentioned activities, was developed around the U theory of Otto Sharmer. It will guide us through a process that helps break through past unproductive patterns of behavior.

The course will also have a strong component based on the sharing of ideas, opinions, experiences and best practices, so if you consider joining the training, start thinking of some activities, you would like to propose.

In the 10 day together, we will move, talk, listen, try, fail, try again and succeed. All in random (improvised) order.

Also, bear in mind that no artistic or impro skills are needed to attend the training.

Youth workers for inclusive Europe. The methods of participatory photography and digital storytelling will be used.

General Description

In societies that are getting more and more divided, there is a constant need to find new solutions to enhance inclusion of groups at risk. We as youth workers often lack capacities to reach out to vulnerable people and even if we do approach them, we do not possess proper methodologies to address their specific needs effectively.

Let Me In is an Erasmus+ training course for youth workers (KA1) that aims at raising the awareness on the specifics of working with different groups at risk, with the main focus being on how to identify their needs and create a safe space for them to express themselves more freely.

By combining theory and practice we strive to give participants an in-depth overview on the topic of enhancing social inclusion and prepare them to organize their own projects in a more efficient way that puts the needs of young people in the center.

The methods
The methods of participatory photography and digital storytelling are based on assumption that everyone`s voice matters, people are experts on their own lives and that by using simple photography and video techniques they can raise issues that are important for their communities and act to make a real change. Participatory art methods is empowering young people and giving them voice that can help them undertake action. The concrete digital skills related to digital storytelling and participatory photography will be introduced to a comprehensive methodology on the use of these tools in the context of youth work.

For this project we are looking for youth workers fulfilling the following criteria:

  • actively involved in the work of an NGO (preferably as staff members)
  • experienced in working with youth with a proven track record of successful
    projects for youngsters at risk
  • able to communicate freely in English
