Expanding Routes: The Difference Between training course

The training activity took place
in Ommen, Holland
organised by Connecting Routes Informal Group

Aims & objectives

Aims and objectives:
- Expanding your capacity for creating connection (rapport) with others
- Becoming more conscious of your movements on a daily basis
- Use your words and body language to increase self-confidence
- Rediscover the joy of play, spontaneity and creativity
- Gathering tools for managing emotional states through movement and body posture

The acitivites served as concrete adaptable tools which the participants take home to their organisaitons which all work in the field of non-formal education for youth. We had very different activities so they respond to the needs of the diverse group we had.
The second goal was to enable a forum where participants get inspiration for personal development, reconnecting to their energy sources and gaining more confidence when using movement, and being more aware of their non-verbal communication.

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

Target group: youth workers having at least 1 year experience in their field.
Nationalities: Dutch, Hungarian, Estonian, Bulgarian, Greek, Israeli, Croatian.

Training methods used & main activities

non-formal education methods, such as:
- kolb circle of learning (experience, personal reflection, awareness, upgrading the knowledge or skill)
- different styles of communication in verbal and non-verbal ways
- movement as a tool of awareness and non-verbal communication
- voice as a tool

Outcomes of the activity

Participants became more aware of their body language, and of their non-verbal communication. They developed all together 20 excercises they took home with them and implement in their work with youth and will be also published on Salto soon. Participants learnt tools of becoming more relaxed in tense situations and also when working with groups.
