Regional Training Course Napoli 2018 - Are You Ready To Change?

The training activity took place
in Napoli, Italy
organised by AEGEE-Napoli, AEGEE-Academy
9th - 11th of March

Aims & objectives

The training aimed at making the participants develop basic knowledge and understanding on several aspects tied to international event management. The training course was developed over the needs of Italian members of AEGEE, as they struggle on fundraising and prefer doing local events over international ones, and many people are clueless about many of the fundamental team roles needed in a Youth Exchange (especially treasurer and incoming responsible). We also took the chance to instruct our participants on how to run a local and how is our organization structured on the European level.

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

The target group mostly comprised people from Italy and nearby regions (southern French, Malta). It was important for us to keep the training course as international as possible, so 30% of the participants and of the trainers were non-italian speakers coming from foreign countries, and the working language was English.

Training methods used & main activities

Brainstorming, simulations and roleplays were the most recurrent things. The "Communication Basics" session was particularly funny, as every participant received a specific scenario and task, giving birth to an amusing theatre (tasks were like "Announce to the group that the accommodation is on fire")

Outcomes of the activity

Half the participants coming from that training course are now board members and proficient event organizers. Some of them took responsibilities in organizing Youth Exchanges immediately after the course itself. Some people instead dropped their responsibilities after the training, meaning the course was actually effective at giving unexperienced people the necessary knowledge to self-evaluate themselves and their choices.
We also managed to be published on 7 Italian/Neapolitan newspapers!

Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

I was working as a full time trainer, preparing the whole course together with two other trainers (Lucia Gavulova from AEGEE-Academy and Francesca Zorcolo from Network Commission of AEGEE-Europe), from the needs analysis within our target area to the gathering of evaluation forms

I worked on this training for 3 days as a full time trainer.
