Training methods used & main activities

Methodology: non-formal education. Interactive and experiential training course that aims to develop participants´ project development skills.

We see the Salesian region as a great melting pot of Czech – Polish – Slovak culture, so we support the possibility of trans-border cooperation among young people, their organisations and projects.

Outcomes of the activity

The aim of our training course was to support young people to develop their project ideas within the framework of the Youth in Action Program, specifically targeting Action 1.2 – Youth Initiatives. Young people also learned the basics of project management and got information of other training and funding possibilities of the Youth in Action Program.

The training was evaluated as a big success both from the participants and the team, but also by the Czech National Agency who decided to repeat the same concept 3 times until now.
