A brochure containing the results of the collaborative work of four EVS volunteerss and four Romanian local volunteers in which they brought together non-formal methods and art for the socio-emotional development of teenargers, adults and children.

Aims of the tool

To provide a set of activities that can be used in the socio-emotional development of teenargers, adults and children.

Description of the tool

Rooted in the non-formal approach to education, the project, as the name suggests, aimed at exploring and capitalizing on the educational valences of Arts. Four volunteers, coming from rather different cultural backgrounds and areas of interest, made this happen: Zarja from Slovenia, Cecile from France, Christina from Austria and Pepe from United Kingdom.
The project took place in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, between October 01, 2017 and May 31, 2018.
During these eight months, the international volunteers, together with local volunteers from Minte Forte, developed personal development workshops based on non-formal methods and arts, and delivered them to children, teenagers and adults. The goal of these activities and the work behind them is the socio-emotional development of the target groups.
The volunteers held their activities in Horea School, Gheorghe Lazăr Pedagogical High School in Cluj-Napoca and within the local community of Cluj-Napoca.
The brochure is composed of three different parts, the methods developed are split into age categories, children, adolescents and adults, as these represented the target group of our team’s efforts.
We put together this brochure, containing the results of our collaborative work within this project, in the hope that it can provide support and inspiration for Your own journey as a Youth worker.
