Nelli Gishyan

About:

Some years back I used to participate in youth meetings and events, because I just liked it! later since 2009 I conduct trainings and youth events, I just live and breath it! ‘Educating the mind without education the heart is no education at all’ [Aristotle] This is what Non Formal Education can give, in addition to all degrees that one obtains.
Non formal Education is the key to be a competent young person, youth worker, decision maker and a leader living in the 21st century!

Nelli Gishyan has 5 references for past work as a trainer.
