SPECIAL EFFECTS - Simplicity, Depth and Nature-Based Methods in Youth Work and Training

Training Course

13-22 May 2016 | Prenčov, Slovak Republic

Training course for trainers, youth workers, facilitators who like to work with nature, who want to develop their facilitation competences and add some special effects to their trainer’s body, mind, heart and spirit through nature based methods.
"Special Effects - Simplicity, Depth and Nature-Based Methods in Youth Work and Training" is an innovative 8-day training course for trainers, facilitators and youth workers who already have some experience in non-formal education and experiential learning. The programme is designed for people who are ready to learn, explore, discover and develop their skills, competences and know-how and will be able to use it later in their jobs and communities. Some of the special effects of this course are the aspect of working in simple rural conditions, using less resources, developing skills for working with youth from rural areas and exploring nature as a tool for empowerment of young people from socially disadvantaged background. We will work on all the most important aspects of learning activities: programme structure, flow, methods, techniques, group dynamics, presentation skills, personality of the trainer, roles and balance in the training team and we will experience it all in a in meeting with local community. The programme will be very flexible and we will be ready to adapt it following very closely the participants’ needs and expectations for the course; plus, a space will always be open for participants who will want a more active role, taking the initiative and practicing non-formal education by actually doing it.
