"Youth, Arise! Creative Tools for Youth Workers" - THE MINDFUL YOUTHWORKER

Training Course

6-15 June 2023 | ASHA Centre, United Kingdom

The "Mindful Youthworker" course equips youth workers with skills and knowledge for working with young people mindfully and compassionately and how to create safe and inclusive spaces and develop greater poise and presence.

"Youth, Arise! Creative Tools for Youth Workers" is a project organized by The ASHA Centre and co-funded by The Erasmus+ program aimed at supporting self-empowerment, mental and emotional resilience, entrepreneurship, and the spirit of initiative among young people in Europe.

The goal of the project is to nurture a new generation of youth workers with the tools and techniques to make a significant impact on young people in our society.

The "Youth, Arise!" project consists of two interlinked training courses, namely The Empowered Speaker and The Mindful Youth Worker, which will be held consecutively in May and June of 2023.

Both courses aim to empower young people to become effective leaders and change-makers in their communities and will be based on a holistic, educational model with an emphasis on personal experience. It will include input from experts in the form of workshops and lectures, creative study, conversation and discussion, drama-based games and exercises.

It is possible to apply for one or both of the courses.


Mindful Youth Worker objectives:

  • To support participants to develop greater poise and presence in their work; to encourage greater calmness and clarity.
  • To promote the values of peace and cooperation, which underpin European civilisation; to help foster a new generation of youth workers, supporting these values through creative out-reach activities.
  • To enhance understanding of the social factors that lead to apathy and alienation amongst young people and to help participants develop positive strategies for tackling these.
