Aims & objectives

The main aim of the training course “Ladder of intercultural sensitivity” is to improve the
intercultural competences of educators and youth workers by using the Milton J. Bennett
model in their everyday activities including their work with different target groups like minorities, young Roma people, immigrants, etc. All of the 8 phases of the model need to be understood by the youth workers and share methods, techniques and tools of how they can support young people from different cultural backgrounds.

The objectives of the project are the following:
• Getting familiar with the Milton J Bennett theory and developmental model of intercultural sensitiveness;
• Developing the competencies of youth workers and educators to implement youth activities in an intercultural sensitive environment including young people with fewer opportunities.
• Develop and improve intercultural competence through the model by recognizing phases of the model: Ambiguity; Getting to know other cultures; understanding other cultures; Tolerance of differences; Acceptance of differences; Appreciation of diversity;
Adaptation; Ability to function in other cultures.
• Obtaining and developing new Key Action 1 Mobility projects for young people and youth workers as youth exchanges and volunteering for young people, training for youth workers and educators on intercultural sensitiveness in consonance.
