Aims & objectives

During 22 – 29 October 2019 in Ravnogor, Bulgaria, 32 youth workers and social workers were learning about and practicing essential coaching skills.

Implementing the project Couch Your Team by Coaching Yourself (CYTCY) we aimed to give practical tools and methods to youth workers – and to people who work with people – so that they have innovative non-formal educational methods to use with their target groups, and, in the mean time they also learn how to make their mental-, physical- and spiritual life sustainable. With the main activity, the training course we aimed to respond concrete needs of the participants what became clear based on our survey that we made before submitting the application, and also we asked and considered the learning needs of the selected participants before and during the training course.

Outcomes of the activity

People who visit our programs, or similar programs designed and delivered by our partners or other organisations, usually tend to share that at the experience has been very challenging. And that is so for sure for many people, as we as trainers and organisers question so many concepts and ideas that our participants have, and not even know about them. As human beings we tend to unconsciously go through life events in an automatic and unaware manner. And among the purposes of the training is to create awareness of our thoughts and a distinction between thoughts and facts. As the main goal of is to create more successes in life, while enjoying it, it is always easier to talk about it, then being it. That is why the program has been designed to tackle on many different levels in order to give an opportunity to observe our own patterns, limiting beliefs, concepts and behaviours.
