Factory of Change TC

Training Course

24-29 April 2012 | Poland

Training course which aims at creating a space where participants can explore: the role of change in their life, how do they respond to change and how to support young people in the changes they are facing.
Our intention: Creating a space where participants explore: - the role of change in their life; - how do they respond to change; - how to support young people in the changes they are facing. Our assumptions: - When we are aware of how we deal with change, we can better respond to changes young/other people are facing. - Change happens – the question is how we deal with it. - Change affects us on all dimensions of life (spiritual, physical, emotional, cognitive). - We are part of the change that we experience. - Change is an opportunity to learn. Qualities of our approach: - We are process-oriented. - We facilitate the space where different needs may be responded to. - Whatever happens in the group may be the potential source of learning. - We aim at creating the safe space (we share our intentions and assumptions, we are attentive to each others’ needs). - We use diversity as a resource. - We intend to learn from the change happening “here and now”. - Holistic (we facilitate learning being aware that people learn in many different ways). Who is called to the Factory? People directly working with youth in a community context: - wanting to explore the role of change in their life; - wanting to know how do they respond to change and how to support young people in the changes they are facing; - active in ‘Youth in Action’ Programme; - able to communicate and work in English; - being at least 18 years old; - residents of the ‘Youth in Action’ Programme Countries, SEE and EECA regions (there are three or four places for participants from SEE and EECA countries). - ready for ACTIVE participation in the whole training. Trainers: Dagna Gmitrowicz (Poland), Peter Hofmann (Austria) and Eliza Zadłużna (Poland)
