SAFE project – Sexuality, Assertiveness, Feminism, Equality

The training activity took place
in Wójtowice, Poland
organised by Stowarzyszenie TKALNIA
15-21 April 2018

Aims & objectives

The main aim was to explore the means to obtain youth sexual safety during youth work in the context of knowledge, attitudes, awareness of existing stereotypes and discrimination.

• To develop a frame for sexual education standards and how they can be integrated into the participants’ youth work practice in their home organisations (all of them working with youths).
• Getting to know the assertiveness and self-defense techniques taken from Wen-Do methodology and how it can be integrated into the participants’ youth work practice.
• Starting a cooperation aiming in creating SAFE guidelines for any youth initiative in Europe.

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

The target group consisted of youth workers, representatives of the organisations from the following countries:
- Cyprus
- Poland
- Portugal
- Romania
- Spain
- Turkey

Training methods used & main activities

We used ONLY non-formal learning methods, providing dynamics and structures taken from:
• Comprehensive sexual education programmes
• Wen-Do techniques
• Anti-discrimination workshops
• Drama exercises
• Warm-up, trust building, name learning activities
• Discussion, sharing, exchange of experience, movement & reflection.

Outcomes of the activity

Together with participants we went through different fields connected to sexual safety of youth in youth projects - participants had always reflection activities that helped them to plan their own work with youths at home.
We managed to develop frames of sexual safety standards in European projects that we will continue working on in the future international project for youth work proffesionals.

The results are going to be posted on the website and the association's FB profile:

I worked on this training for 6 days as a full time trainer.
