Venue: Horezu, Romania

Eligible are 34 participants coming from: Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Turkey

Application deadline: 7th March 2020

Out for changE+ is a training course dedicated to 34 youth workers that will develop themselves personally and professionally with the aim of promoting and being active in inclusive education.

General Description

Through the training course “Out for ChangE+” we want to motivate youth workers to change the set patterns and perspective about education and activity design, to realize the countless possibilities to implement inclusive activities and the multidimensional benefits that this can have in the learning process and development of the young people, contributing to the change of the learning, education and educational system in an inclusive one, and empower youth workers and most important, the young people through them.

Furthermore, we want to support youth workers to understand better and promote an inclusive environment, to develop their skills and learning in innovative settings, using non-formal education methods to raise their civic and social awareness.

Throughout the project, the participants will:

1. Acquire knowledge about inclusion and inclusive non-formal methods, that they can apply in their typical work;

2. Develop their training skills and expertise in working with young people in inclusive settings, using non-formal education and experiential methods;

3. Increase their awareness that integrating inclusive education methods and activities can create social change and benefit greatly the young people and their communities.

The training course will have 8 full days of activities, between the 22nd and the 29th of April 2020 (21 and 30 April wil be travel days) that will be organized in Horezu, Romania, hosting 34 youth workers that will develop themselves personally and professionally with the aim of promoting and being active in inclusive education.

The methods used will be non-formal indoor and outdoor methods, focused on inclusion by combining activities and tools used in: non-formal education, experiential outdoor education and therapy, art and drama therapy, mixed in a multidimensional approach to create great impact and provide practical tools that they can transfer easily in their daily work with the young people.

We will focus on: promoting inclusion in all our activities, team building activities, to form the group and create a network of professionals; peer to peer learning – sharing sessions; design and simulation of activities to develop the knowledge and skills of the participants; communication with groups that have members with disability; group dynamics management. The activities of the mobility are based on the principle of learning by doing.

Participants:

Our participants will be 34 youth workers from the 8 partner countries that work daily with youngsters – any level of experience with the age above 18, interested and highly motivated in developing their skills in inclusive education and with a vivid interest of doing so with the help of non-formal outdoor experiential education and with a strong determination to transfer the methods in their daily work and to promote inclusive education in their communities and beyond.

They should own a strong desire to share their own experiences and learning outcomes and use them as tools to improve their skills/methods and the ones of the youth they are working with.

English level should not be eliminatory, but it would be recommended to be at least B1.

The project is not created for outdoor experts, but for youth workers that are interested to integrate in their work methods that favour inclusion of youngsters with mobility or visual impairment. The physical level of difficulty of the methods is low, but the specific outcomes about how to actually work with outdoor inclusive education having a group with participants with special needs is high level.

Application deadline: 31st January 2020

The main aim of this training course is to empower and equip youth workers with the competences needed to work in a One 2 One relationship with young people in order to support their learning and development processes.

General Description

Have you ever felt confused about your role with the young people you work with? Do they see you as a coach? Mentor? Tutor? Can you work with groups, but find it difficult to work with individuals? Have you never had a tetralemma? Yes?

Then this course is for you!

Context and background of this training course:

In several areas of the European youth programmes, youth workers and trainers are increasingly required to be able not only to work with groups of young people but, also, to accompany individuals through the various learning, professional and personal development processes on offer.

Although one-to-one dialogue may seem like an obvious and natural form of communication, for youth work practitioners it has also become a professional requirement. Therefore many youth workers feel they need training in order to appropriately support young people through their individual development and learning processes.

We are very happy to invite you to apply for the 5th edition of this successful course, which will be held in Hattingen, Germany.

What does “One 2 One” Stand for?

“One 2 One” is a little play on words. One 2 one means face to face i.e. the individual relationship, which we are focusing on during the training course.

The aims and objectives of this training course:

The main aim of this course is to empower and equip youth workers with the competences needed to work in a One 2 One relationship with young people in order to support their learning and development processes.

  • To explore what “supporting learning” means in one-to-one relationships;
  • To practice different one-2-one learning support methods and approaches;
  • To develop the skill of initiating & supporting self-reflection about learning;
  • To reflect on how supporting learning individually and in groups complement and influence
  • each other;
  • To exchange about various types of contexts (from local youth work to international mobilities) and approaches such as mentoring, coaching and tutoring.

The course will be based on and supported by the following publications:

  • One 2 One – Supporting Learning Face to Face
  • The Competence Model for Youth workers to work internationally

Within the training course you will also learn more about how to implement the Youthpass process.

Target group and profile of participants:

Professionals and volunteers – youth workers and/or youth leaders, youth trainers, mentors, educators etc.:

  • who have minimum one year of experience in working with young people (be it in local youth work or international mobility context);
  • motivated to develop the competences needed to work in One 2 One relationships;
    minimum 18 years old;
  • able to actively participate in English.

The learning process and the programme of the training course:

In order to provide the possibility for participants to experience being supported individually in their own learning process, the training course is extended by One 2 One talks with the trainers both before and after the course. Each participant will be accompanied by the same trainer throughout.

  • Before the training course: Participant and trainer One 2 One talk by Skype
  • During the training course: Participant and trainer One 2 One talk
  • After the training course: Participant and trainer One 2 One talk by Skype

What you can expect:

The preliminary programme of the course is presented in the attached brochure and will be adjusted according to participants’ expressed needs and expectations during the One 2 One talks by Skype.

Monika Kezaite is a trainer from Lithuania. She has been involved in youthwork since 2000, mostly in the field of volunteering.
