ABOUT THE PROJECT
The project “LET(LearnEducateTeach) me TRY” is an international training of youth workers, leaders of intercultural facilitation organizations, involving 26 youth workers (and 2 experienced trainers) from Poland, France, Greece, Italy, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Malta, Cyprus, Hungary, Romania, Spain.
The long-term project involves three phases:
1. Mobility of youth workers – training in the context of the facilitation of intercultural groups. It will allow you to thoroughly understand the specificity and importance of culture, its directions, its approach and the complexity of the intercultural environment (as well as its challenges: misunderstandings, conflicts, “false debates”, tensions). Second, provide participants with the tools they need to work on the issue, through in-depth understanding of the logic of non-formal education, the importance of group dynamics, the diversity of leadership approaches, the exploration of mediation attitudes in intercultural work.
2. A local phase in which staff will test and adapt the created methods for excluded youth groups, intercultural communities with whom they work every day.
3. Mobility, in the context of work on re-evaluation of local action and the quality of methods used in the context of international projects and the inclusion of young people with fewer opportunities.
