Youth Voice

Training Course

4-12 July 2023 | Litomysl, Czech Republic

Exploring capabilities of our voices and discovering empowering potential of non-formal educational methodologies based on using voice as a tool for social change.

Youth Voice is a 7 days long training course that aims to provide youth workers with skills for using Voice and Public Speaking tools for Human Rights activism. Following a three stage process (The Voice awareness, Voice ensemble and Voice Empowerment and Confidence), participants will have a chance to explore the path from becoming aware of their individual voice to creating collective and the political voice. After experiencing the voice related methodology themselves, participants will be able to develop and facilitate workshops with the LGBTQ+ youth in their home countries. 

Who can apply?
Youth workers, educators, NGO activists who work directly with LGBT+ young people

What are we going to do:

  • learn how to become more aware of how our voice functions and what vocal image we can have
  • explore the potential of our voice; from basic technical exercises for voice awareness to wider creative uses of the voice in speech and public speaking
  • gain new voice methods, techniques and strategies that can be applicable in daily work with youngsters, specifically LBGT+ youth
  • explore different body-oriented exercises, improvisation theatre, soundwalks, visual facilitation and similar,  as supportive methods in raising awareness of our voice and vocal transformative potential
  • learn how to use drama and improvisational singing techniques as tools for supporting our target groups on their way of discovering their collective voice
  • learn how to design and facilitate voice-based workshops for LGBT+ young people, fostering group communication and sense of belonging

Participants’ profile:

  • comfortable with self-directed and experiential learning and non-formal methodologies with a participant centred approach
  • curious about discovering your own voice and the possibility of freeing it of the unnecessary tensions and harmful habits
