Lead It Like You Mean It

The training activity took place
in Brandbu, Norway
organised by Shokkin Group Norge

Aims & objectives

The aim of the project is to increase the level of quality of international youth exchanges through developing youth leader/youth worker competence set for being a group leader and be involved in the whole project cycle.

The target group were youth workers and youth leaders who have not yet been in a group leader's position at youth exchanges. The group was composed of 24 participants from 7 European countries.

Training methods used & main activities

The training was based on non-formal education methods and we used: team-building activities, case studies, theatrical sketches, tests and personal assessment inventories, simulation games, group debates and other methods.

Outcomes of the activity

The training resulted in developing a set of guidelines for group leaders and a manual for group leaders to prepare and implement youth exchanges with the groups of youth.
