I have taken part in several European youth work trainings, several Youth in Action trainings on Social media, Youth exchanges and Exploring diversity as well as one European Council training called 'Living in divided communities'. All these trainings were fantastic for inter-cultural learning and understanding as well as new and exciting forms of non-formal education and alternative methodologies for youth work.
From October 2011 to February 2012 as well as from December 2013 to January 2014 I was a volunteer at Love Kids Orphanage in Nkoranza, Ghana, West Africa. My duties included child care such as helping with washing, play work and help with homework with the main project being about promoting sustainability through sun ovens. However, they also included plumbing, farming, masonry and carpentry as well as basic mechanics. Since 2012 I have lived on-and-off in Kumanovo, FYR Macedonia starting for my European Voluntary Service as co-ordinator of a youth centre. This required a number of diverse duties such as play work workshops, time management, foreign language interaction, community integration and general maintenance. Under my management this youth centre has also held several concerts and youth events for local young people. I also ran several ‘English for Expression’ and Leadership workshops within the centre set up Kumanovo’s first Street Based Youth Service.
In recent months I have developed my professional ability as a non-formal education trainer and coordinator. I did this within the Youth in Action programme; I was a professional trainer on the ‘Accessible Project Cycle Management’ training co-ordinated by Center for Intercultural Dialogue as well as on the Seminar ‘ACTive YOUth!!!’ co-ordinated by Globallove Youth Trust & Center for Intercultural Dialogue. Following this I coordinated an outdoor pursuits based youth exchange in Wales including 60 participants called ‘Back 2 Basics’ which in turn was followed by a smaller youth exchange in Macedonia called ‘www.nature.eu’. Most recently I have been a professional trainer on 2 international training courses. One in Serbia about the Kolb’s experiential learning cycle and one in Macedonia about working with rural young people.
