Follow the Yellow Brick Road

Training Course

24 November - 1 December 2014 | Wezuperbrug, Netherlands

“Follow the Yellow Brick Road” is an experiential training course that aims to develop participants' skills for self-empowerment and ownership of their life, as well as foster their youth worker skills to support young people dealing with change.
“Follow the Yellow Brick Road” is an innovative 7-day Erasmus+ training course for youth workers, trainers and youth leaders raising the question most of us face nowadays – how can we in today’s economy create satisfying reality for us and choose the right career path? In our training course we will look for “the element” - having an experience that allows you to reflect on why you do what you do in work in order to enable young people you are working with to do the same. “Follow the Yellow Brick Road” takes its name from the movie "The Wizard of Oz". We chose this name because it is perfectly related to the topic of challenge, change, journey and transformation and that's what the training course is going to be about. The programme involves theoretical inputs and practical workshops, discussions, group processes and individual work. A substantial part of the programme will take place outdoors in nature. The training course will take place in Wezuperbrug, a small village in the province of Drenthe, in the north-eastern part of the Netherlands from the 24th of November to the 1st of December 2014. It will involve 30 participants from 8 EU countries: the Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Belgium, Czech Republic, Malta, UK and Ireland. AIMS and OBJECTIVES of the course: The course wants to bring the participants on a journey of the "yellow brick road" (the story of "The Wizard of Oz" creates a red line in our programme). We aim to provide participants with tools and inputs to help them to be more aware of themselves, their skills and their competences - and also how to empower young people they are working with to do the same. In particular, we would like to: - To create a space for personal development, by exploring personal talents, aspirations and potential through a variety of non formal education and experiential tools; - To explore and reflect on ‘change’ and ‘responsibility’, as ways to define and reach personal and professional objectives and live a more fulfilling life; - To experience tools and methodologies that can be utilised to enable, empower and inspire young people; - To discover how non-formal education can enhance employability of young people and guide them in finding their own career path;
