Into the World

Training Course

6-14 May 2017 | Romania

Into the World aims at enhancing the competences of youth workers so that they support youth for personal and professional growth. The key elements are holistic education, life purpose, valuing potential, nature-based methodology, competences for life.
Into the World is an innovative 7 day training course for Youth Workers and Educators involved in creating learning opportunities for young people. The training course will tackle particularly youth empowerment, valuing the potential of the youth, supporting them into finding a life purpose and translating the informal and non-formal learning into competences for life. The idea of the training ”Into the World” was born by doing a simple comparison between the potential of young people in EU and their reality. This is what we found out from this comparison: The tremendous potential of youth! o One in four European youth has been a volunteer o 50% of European youth are active in organization, club or association o The current generation of European youth is the best educated ever! The sad reality of youth… o Currently, 13,7 millions of European youth (between 15 and 29 years) remain out of employment, education or training! Seeing this, we felt the need of doing something about it. We envision a society where young people are able to transfer their potential and competences into practice, move from the place of acquiring to the place of applying, implementing and achieving. We are confident that this is time to support young people in order to get Into the World! How to do it? By following these steps: 1. We, youth workers need to support youth to realize the competences they have and find ways to put them into practice, to apply them in real life for their personal and professional development and get into the world. 2. We also need to support youth to embrace a purpose in life, a direction that will guide them throughout their life and is relevant for their personal, professional and social development. All these are the elements we will tackle during the training ”Into the world”. The project aims at enhancing the competences of the youth workers so that they support young people to exploit their experiences for personal, professional and social growth. The project aims at enhancing the competences of the youth workers so that they support young people to exploit their experiences for personal, professional and social growth. The objectives of the project are for the youth workers 1. to gain knowledge related to the transferability of informal and non-formal learning into competences; 2. to develop understanding why a life purpose is important especially for young people; 3. to enhance their skills to guide the young people to use their experiences in order to find and pursue their purpose in life; 4. to increase their motivation in supporting young people in using their competences (professionally and personally); 5. to develop a personal follow-up plan to use with the young people they work with;

Actions for Change is an organization established in 2016 with the aim to bring personal and community transformation and to build the capacity of educators in order to contribute to a more sustainable society, where the full potential of individuals can be achieved through quality education. The organization was born out of the need identified by a group of young professionals, educators and youth workers who want to contribute to an enriching and enjoyable process of learning for young and adult learners.
