Aims & objectives

The second edition of “Life Love Youthpass” training course aims at highlighting and enhancing the quality of the educational aspects within EVS. The focus will be on exploring the learning process within EVS and, in particular, on understanding Youthpass as a tool for learning and on developing skills in how to transfer the learning outcomes into the Key Competences of Youthpass.

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

Target group:

The training course targets mentors or persons in EVS receiving organisations responsible for supporting the Youthpass process. The selected participants are expected to have the basic knowledge and/or experience in EVS in order to be able to benefit from the training. The organisations participants represent should hold a valid EVS accreditation or be in the process of accreditation.
Countries involved, Spain, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Lithuania, Hungary, Romania and Italy. The training team was made up of 2 trainers 1 from Barcelona and myself from Ireland

Training methods used & main activities

The methodology used in this training will be based on new and creative experiential learning processes and non-formal education. Participants will explore but also experience these processes themselves during the training through reflection of learning and by discovering their own way of learning to learn (L2L).

Outcomes of the activity

During the training course participants had the opportunity to reflect, explore and question their own understanding of learning. We supported them to develop their own approach and action plan to help EVS volunteers on their learning journey. In order to gain that, participants were guided through their own pathway of learning, supported by the other participants and trainers in order to achieve a greater understanding of the entire Youthpass process and its key competences. The overall outcome was a better supporter and higher quality of Youthpasses from partner organisations
