Aims & objectives

To upskill youth workers in how to manage diversity in their daily work and in youth activities. The participants learned how to help young people appreciate diversity and cooperate despite their differences.

• By exploring and sharing concepts and different forms of diversity and inclusion, and learning from approaches and methods used in youth work and other different sectors, such as business or formal education.
• By translating these tools and methods to practice in youth work.

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

The group comprised 22 participants from 9 countries, namely: Italy, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Romania and Spain.

Training methods used & main activities

A good range of non-formal methods were used which took into account the diversity of the group and their needs. We addressed all the key learning styles; audio, visual and kinaesthetic. Relevant energiser and de-nesting activities were used in each case. Some of which were The Diversity World Cafe, Comic Strip Share and Flower Power.

Outcomes of the activity

We are delighted with the evaluation results which provided information enabling us to know that this was a success. We used non-formal tools to measure before and after, namely the Learning Ladders. The programme design reflected the learning objectives and the participants acknowledge this. The pledges made during the Footsteps in the Park activity for next steps is indicative of its success as the participants have all made concrete plans to take their learning further and to help to develop the learning of others. Project partnerships were also formed.

Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

Along with the rest of the team, I helped to design the carefully constructed programme to reflect the aim and objectives of the training course, prepared materials in advance and delivered the workshops in Bonn. I helped to support the participants during their learning journey.

I contributed to the post-event analysis which comprised a report for participants and an online evaluation.

I worked on this training for 4 days as a full time trainer.
