It's My Nature - Youth Worker Training Course

Training Course

24-29 September 2023 | Woodstown, County Waterford, Ireland

A Training Course for Youth Workers to improve skills through the power of participatory theatre - based on creativity and inner leadership as tools for social inclusion.

The overall aim of the Training Course is to improve the self-awareness and self-confidence of Youth Workers from across Europe so that they can support the young people that they work with and can guide them in their learning process as full, authentic people. The Course participants will do this through the development of a learning toolkit which they can use with their own young people in their own countries after the Course.

This Training Course is targeted at applicants who are experienced at working in the areas of non-formal learning and youth work.

The main objectives are:

  • To support youth workers to become more aware of themselves, thus enabling them to make conscious choices and decisions that fit with the core of their identity and their goals in life
  • To dive deeper into, and really experience concepts such as resilience, confidence, vulnerability, empathy and creativity
  • To frame a learning process where youth workers feel commitment and inclusion by sharing and experience
  • To provide youth workers with tools to support a deep connection with young people they work with
  • To include local people with the effective method of Participatory Theatre and spread this around
  • To share tools and methods from across Europe, and to inspire the participants to implement similar learning processes after the Training Course for their own target groups
  • To reflect on their own learning process by using the Key Competences from the Youth Pass, and giving the opportunity for capacity building in the context of the Erasmus+ Program.
