Aims & objectives

The main goal of the Training Course was to introduce a set of new, innovative methods and tools to youth workers, trainers, social workers that they can implement in their work with young people. The aim was also to give space for best practice sharing and to promote creativity in designing activities and to give new ideas and inspiration for participants to grow in their professions.

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

Participants of the Training Course were 31 youth leaders, trainers, facilitators,
volunteers, 18+ with no upper age limit, from 8 European countries: Greece,
Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Spain.

Training methods used & main activities

The main method we used during the program was the method of experimental learning - learning by doing. The idea was to support youth workers with new tools that they can implement in their work while also developing some of their own soft skills. Some of the methods that we used:
- creative recycling
- business thinking
- graphic facilitation
- outdoor
- design thinking
- gamification

Outcomes of the activity

Participants of the Training Course developed their skills and competences that they can use in their future personal and professional lives. They acquired knowledge on new, innovative methods used in youth work and they had the chance to practice them already during the program since they organised workshops/activities in 4 local institutions - with 4 different target groups.
