Multi-culti leader project

Training Course

17-23 June 2013 | Crimea, Ukraine

Leadership, group dynamics, intercultural learning, contact with local community, learning dimension, international volunteer projects in a nutshell - everything you need to know to lead international volunteer project, workcamp or youth exchange
International volunteer projects — workcamps and youth exchanges, have central place in the activities of many youth and voluntary service organizations. Each project needs a campleader, or coordinator, or teamer, or groupleader. Names could be many, functions may vary — still, leader is one of the keys to success of the international volunteer project. With the proposed training we aim to prepare leaders in international atmosphere, discuss different aspects of international volunteer projects — on example of workcamp and youth exchange — and their preparation, international cooperation between partners, leadership, solving conflicts and other issues related to leading a project and international group. The special focus of the training will be intercultural learning in the group, how to organize it beyond traditional international evening. Together we'll brainstorm to develop some ideas for activities and methods on intercultural learning in workcamps and youth exchanges. Participants will also learn about online info resource for leaders — campleader wiki, which will be completed with new materials from the training.
