Sports Activities: The Path to Social Inclusion

Training Course

27 April - 5 May 2018 | Larnaca, Cyprus

Training of youthworkers on how Sports can enhance their capacity and repertoire of practices in order to respond more effectively to diversity and in intercultural settings. We will have activities indoor, outdoor (sports), and with refugees in camps.
The project " Sports Activities: The path to Social Inclusion'' aims to support 26 youthworkers from partner organizations (Cyprus, Bulgaria, Italy, Greece, Spain, Latvia, Malta, Romania) and inspire the wider lifelong learning community on how to improve social inclusion practices through education through sport. All partners intend to identify and show the power of E+ trainings through a TC week of NFL activities (using sports as a tool). In other words, during this TC they aim to enhance and enrich the repertoire of inclusive practices of their youth workers when they work in the ongoing changing society they live in. Therefore, by the end of the project there will be an increased impact on the improvement of basic key competences for youth workers and increased awareness on how social inclusion can be supported through sports. The project week will be based mainly on sports activities and Education through Sport practice using NFL, but also activities with refugees in Asylum Camp of Kofinou. The objectives of the project/TC are: 1. To increase awareness in youthworkers on how NFL can support the active and joyful involvement into sports 2. To train youth workers to develop inclusive practices through sports activities, for supporting effectively marginalized groups (refugees, migrants, socially excluded); 3.To increase awareness on and suggest the method of education through sports (to all pax/yw) as a practice that supports wellbeing (in short term) and social inclusion and solidarity (in long term); 4.
