Aims & objectives

Youth in Action Programme project, Action 3.1 training course by name “Cap it all off! Diversity beyond trapped barriers – The 2nd Edition” was held in Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina from 19 – 28 of October 2012

Taking into consideration that contacts between people from different cultures does not automatically lead to improved mutual understanding and that many people feel unable to cope with or even threatened by the presence of persons with customs and habits rooted in other cultures, the training was aimed to strengthen the intercultural competences of youth workers within Europe by challenging typical approaches of intercultural learning within youth work in regard to qualification requirements of youth workers involved and to what and how young people should be taught within the context of intercultural youth work.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

The project took place in Mostar from 19 – 28 October 2012 with participants from European Programme countries and Neighbouring partner countries from Southeastern Europe.

Target group on this project were youth leaders, youth workers, facilitators, trainers and multipliers.

Participants from Albania, Serbia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Poland, Estonia, Italy,Spain, Bulgaria and Germany have participated in 10 days long training course.

Total number of participants was: 28

Training methods used & main activities

The working methods used on this training course were non-formal education and informal way of learning. This included: games, energizers, ice-breakers, team building exercises, individual and group activities, work on practical examples in a small groups, simulations, thematic workshops, discussions, debates, presentations...

The team of 2 experienced Salto youth trainers followed approved program activities. We adopted all our activities to the participants and their level of knowledge and experiences. Some changes in the program activities were due to the active participation of the participants who proposed games, energizers and short educative sessions related to the topic of the daily program.

Outcomes of the activity

Therefore the participants of the project were faced during the training course with three main priority learning areas for intercultural learning processes as perception structures, social attitudes and the resulting types of behavior; understanding that the overall aim of any initial or future projects must be intercultural learning - as a principle for the learning processes within these activities themselves and as the general objective of European youth work.
