Aims & objectives

ReCharge Yourself was a  7 days training course that has been developed especially for people who work in the field of nonformal education. For trainers, youth workers, mentors, social workers - professionals from the youth field etc.

The main topic of the Training Course was self-motivation and self- empowerment.
With this program we aimed to support other trainers and NGOs in order to reduce stress and self-destruction during work and international programs and create a more effective way of living as a social / youth worker. The goal was also to share with the other trainers and youth workers the importance of self-motivation in the area of non-formal and lifelong learning education.

The main objectives of the project are:
- To learn and practice the new soft skills and practice the set of competencies of the trainers.
- To learn about self-motivation professionally and personally
- To promote sustainable living and healthy lifestyle
- To promote creativity in youth work by implementing new methods in education

We put the focus on sustainble learning - participants learned to maintian their learning process, create a routine of learning.
Participants of the training course have a better insight on working with young people with different target groups and its' affects - it will enable them to improve consciousness, creativity, communication, design thinking, self empowerment and motivation in general- skills that they can use in their personal and professional lives as well.
They gained new attitudes towards their own profession and are now moreo motivated to build in the newly acquired knowledge and tools in their work with youngsters and to develop further projects in order to include young people more actively.
Moreover they will be able to transform this knowledge into their already existing NGOs , organizations and social enterprises. It will reduce stress level at their work place and make the work more enjoyable.
