Dream Catchers

The training activity took place
in St Germain au Mont d'Or (Lyon)
organised by French National Agency
25-30 May 2015

Aims & objectives

The major aim of this training course is to support youth/social workers to develop their competences in empowering young people with fewer opportunities to become aware of, and act on, their dreams and visions of their own futures.
For today’s young people – especially those who are NEET or who have more difficulty accessing mobility and employment programmes – the pressure to “get a job” is great - but employment opportunities are scarce.
At the same time, many youth workers – whilst understanding the need of society to see these young people “fitting in” - would like to create the kind of safe environment to help young people develop their competences in a wider sense than that of simply being able to “find employment” or “start up a business” – but, really, to discover what competences they already have – and explore what dreams and passions they might have for creating not only a better future for themselves – but, potentially, also for making more of an impact on the world they live in….

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

Target group: The TC gathered 24 youth workers from 15 different european countries, from coming from various fields working with young people from diverse backgrounds - especially those who are NEET – who wanted to be better equipped to empower young people to access services, employment and mobility opportunities.

With used Non Formal education methodology for this TC. We used creative thinking exercises, outdoor activities, inputs about the topics and lots of funny and dreamy activities : meditation, treasure hunt, origami, music, etc.
