ABOUT THE PROJECT
Throughout the execution and evaluation of previous projects, Let’s learn from each other! and Let’s learn from each other! Level 2, we found out that a training course like this one, would be the thing that would perfectly upgrade the knowledge and competences of the involved youths to the level, where they would be equipped with skills for one’s own mentoring of groups of youths for international youth exchange application.
The training course will last for seven days, during which we will use experiential methodology, throughout which the youths will strengthen their soft skills, intercultural skills, communication skills, organizational skills and learn about key concepts of youth work. The local organizations and projects LLFEO and LLFEO Lv2 will be used as a learning polygon, where we will learn through practices of organized international youth exchanges, challenges we as well as other local organizations had to overcome, as well as examples of other good practices. Young, so called “junior” youth workers will be enabled to transfer the given knowledge into their own organization’s context, where they will, after this training course, take groups of youths under their care and guide them on the path from conceptualizing to execution of project ideas, while offering them support throughout the whole process. Meanwhile they will, with the help of national mentors, from month to month deepen their knowledge.
