Widening Horizons- A Training for Organisation Hosting and Sending Volunteers

Training Course

29 January - 1 February 2019 | Dublin , Ireland

This training aims to support organisations hosting and sending volunteers through European Solidarity Corp to explore the experience and learning outcomes for the volunteer.

The training will explore the concept of transformative learning and how volunteering can transform participants understanding of themseleves; their belief systems; and influence their behaviour/lifestyle choices. We will also explore how these connections can make an overall impact on the hosting and sending organisation and community. This training will look at these topics and identify how we can incorporate transformative learning into our own practice.  

The overall objectives of this TCA are to:  build a better understanding of transformative learning and how to use these skills when working with volunteers in the lifecycle of your project.  We want to explore these benefits focusing on, personal development, youth mental health and wellbeing . This training will also look at different tools, methods and structures that we can implement within ESC projects to maximise the potential for transformational learning

The expected learning outcomes of this project will be:

-To recognise the process of transformative learning and to understand its impact on volunteers

-How to implement transformative learning in your project

-For your organisation to become more aware of their practice when engaging and working with volunteers

-To identify the impact of transformative learning from the individual to the community including organisations mentors, supervisors etc.

-This training will also provide the opportunity for meeting potential project partners and sharing best practice.
