Aiste Slajute


My work has a holistic and person-centered approach with particular emphasis on empowerment through active participation. As a trainer I use creative and engaging non-formal education methods that can challenge groups as I am always up for a challenge myself! I believe that Youth Work is about walking that extra mile towards building a more inclusive society where diversity is celebrated and every single person is valued for who they are and I feel privileged to be a part of so many journeys!
