7 day Training Course with a logical continuity and substantive upgrade of interactive, creative and participatory workshops aiming to develop better understanding of the usage of non-formal education in the process of inclusion of minor unaccompanied refugees. The work programme enables participants to grow and develop personally being out of their comfort zone and establishing inter-cultural communication with people from similar background like them, but different countries, cultures and speaking different languages.
The participants will have a chance to meet the group of 30 minor refugees we work with, get to know them better, learn more about their culture and be able to work with them for a day.
Several interactive, creative and participatory workshops will be carried out by internationally experienced youth workers – Erasmus+ trainers. During the workshops participants will interact with each other, give their input, brainstorm, make presentations, represent their country, discuss the themes, present their point of view, experience and learn new methods etc. Participants also prepare icebreakers and teambuilding activities within the organization prior the travelling date that they will deliver during the training.
The participants will also get a chance to practice some of the methods with the group of boys from Syria and Afghanistan, who attend German classes in Stockschloss, and understand the complexity of working with this group of youth at risk.
