Volunteering for social transformation

Training Course

3-12 September 2011 | Sant Joan de les Abadesses (Girona), Catalonia, Spain

TC on Human Rights Education and Participation, aiming to to question the educational youth work models intended to achieve the above-named Social Transformation. We will work through experiential learning, theater, playing and project planning.
The training course "Volunteering for social transformation" is an opportunity for youth leaders and educators working with children, teenagers and youth on a voluntary basis in the topics of Human Rights Education and Participation, and to question the educational youth work models intended to achieve the above-named Social Transformation. The course is addressed to youth leaders and educators committed with non-formal education, and pursues the reinforcement of a proactive voluntary model, able to lead processes creating activities and participating as active citizen in the projects he/she commits with. Moreover, the event will contribute to establish a lasting partnership with other organisations that work with young people and children around Europe, providing space for project planning among the organisations involved in the course. Above all, this training course is just for YOU, to self-develop new competences as educator, to better address new interests for your esplai, circolo, unit, centre, etc., and to promote education for diversity within your organisation through creating spaces to share experiences with peers from other European countries. Medieval town located in the Catalan Pyrenees. Participants will be hosted in rooms of 4/5 people in Ruta del Ferro Youth Hostel (www.rutadelferro.net)
