“Embracing Diversity”- Training course on diversity management

Training Course

18-23 November 2019 | Rome, Italy

TC will give youth workers concrete methods for managing diversity and serve as a space for exploring various kinds of diversity. It aims to influence the daily practice of the participants by allowing them to learn from and be inspired by each other.


All youth workers have to deal with the fact that the young people they work with are different from each other in many ways – this means that they have to manage diversity. Some differences are more obvious than others – such as ethnicity, religion or language. Diversity is more than the obvious differences, however – it also includes differences such as educational level, social and economic situation, sexuality, health and hidden or visible disabilities. Many youth workers put great emphasis on including a diversity of people, and this training will help participants to manage this diversity in their work. This is the 3rd edition of the TC.

During the training course, we will look at different concepts of inclusion and diversity. We will offer concrete tools, techniques and methods youth workers can use to manage diversity. We will facilitate discussions between the participants in order to learn from each other and find common ground in our experiences with working with diverse groups. Participants at the course will also learn how to pass on what they have learned at the training to the young people they work with.
