Out in the Open

Training Course

9-15 September 2019 | Rites, Latvia

Take part in the innovative 3-phases project Out in the Open and learn how you can use outdoor methods and tools for the social inclusion and self-empowerment of young people, especially LGBT+ youth. The program takes place in Latvia.

Out in the Open focuses on improving the social inclusion and active participation of LGBT+ youth in society by enhancing the competencies of youth workers in outdoor education.

The 3 phases training program, aims to provide outdoor methods and tools to youth workers who work with young LGBT+ people - in order to become pioneers in the implementation of those tools in the field of social inclusion and in the search of LGBT+ young people’s empowerment.

"Outdoors is a tool that brings people together, regardless of their background. Learning through outdoor experience is a powerful stimulus which places us in unique settings where we are often quite unsure of ourselves. We are offered the opportunity to move beyond our comfort zone, build meaningful connections, face our issues and fears while fostering our physical and mental health, living a full-body experience."


The project is for people above 18+ years old, who are youth workers, youth leaders, mentors, volunteers or staff in NGO’, who work directly with LGBT+ youth at a local level and are interested to experience themselves the power of outdoor education. 

See more detailed information about the 3 phases of the project in the info letter.
