ALL THE APPLICANTS TO THIS TRAINING COURSE RECEIVED AN E-MAIL ANNOUNCING THE PERSONAL RESULTS OF THE FINAL SELECTION. Please verify your Spam folder, as well. Learning by teaching Non Formal Education purpose is to help youth workers in understanding the characteristics, methods and upsides of non formal education in developing youth and motivating them. To reach the purpose of the project and in order to have an impact on the community of Bucharest, we established the following Objectives to the project: 1. Participants will understand the characteristics of formal, non-formal and informal education, they will be educated on the styles of learning and they will understand why non-formal methods facilitate the learning curb. 2. Participants will develop their abilities to work in teams, to sustain a debriefing, to use socio-educational animation as a component of non-formal methods and to develop at least 20 new ENF methods, with the help of which they will contribute in actively developing youth. 3. During the project, the participants will develop a position of understanding the youth with less opportunities and compassion The 24 Participants should be very motivated to be a part of this project and to understand the upside of non-formal education and methods and we wish that in the end a minimum of 20 new methods will be created. To help the Bucharest community and to offer the participants the chance to practice the non-formal methods developed together, we decided to hold the activities with teenagers and children from 2 orphanages from the city. This will help the children get new motivation and help their personal growth and the youth workers will understand that they CAN make a change in their community. The youth workers will work 3 days with the youth and in the end they will express their thoughts, feelings and emotions through the Live Exposition that will take place in the middle of the city. We wish to produce an impact at the community level and to help people understand that disadvantaged people need their help. Another result will be the project’s brochure that will contain at least 20 non-formal methods developed by the participants and their impressions regarding what they experienced during the project. The brochure will be distributed in schools, high schools, NGOs and Children’s homes in all 6 participant countries. The participants will continue the learning process, by writing articles on the blog and a mentoring period that will last 2 months.

C.R.E.D.E. Association (Centre of Resources for Education, Development and Excellence) was founded from passion for personal and professional development, following a Youth in Action project implemented by an informal group of youth from Alba County, Romania.

We intend to conceive, organize, promote and conduct activities and projects -in Romania and abroad-, by pursuing both personal and professional development among youth through educational activities, trainings and projects that can contribute to each participant’s personal goals achievement.

If you are searching for a committed and enthusiast partner, we are the ideal choice. We truly acknowledge the importance of non-formal education and we enjoy spending time among people who developed the same interests as the organization’s members. Also, we strongly believe in the unlimited potential of every person with whom we interact.

We respect and we strive to cultivate: dignity, honor, altruism, diligence, responsibility, competence, transparency, common sense, loyalty, solidarity, equality, respect for all people - without discrimination. Through the resources we provide within the activities and projects we develop, we intend to promote intellectual training, moral formation and active involvement in community’s life.
