Apel inchis: Let’s Stop Bullying, Ucraina [DL: 7 aprilie 2014]

“Let’s Stop Bullying” (LSB)

Training Course

23-31 May 2014 | Kyiv, Ukraine

This training course will be held on May 23-31, 2014 in suburbs of Kyiv for 39 youth leaders, youth workers, and active volunteers from 12 countries. The main topic of the training will be the prevention of bullying.

Main objectives:
-to raise young people’s awareness about the problem of bullying in our world, the importance of joint efforts in tackling this issue, and the dramatic differences in the understanding of bullying in various countries and cultures;
-to share current work practices currently taking place, who is doing it, and who is benefiting;
-to allow participants to hear about the best practices and successes in current anti-bullying work;
-to empower young people in spreading the word on bullying among youngsters using non-formal educational activities;
-and to provide participants with knowledge, skills, and confidence in the area of non-formal education, techniques, and messaging;
-to develop tools which would make the concept of anti-bullying attractive, cool, and fun to follow for youngsters;
-to enable young people to develop their own educational modules which they will in turn bring to their local communities and implement with youngsters living in rural and/or deprived urban areas;
-to build up a network of anti-bullying messengers which would allow participants to support each other.
After the training, participants will implement and evaluate non-formal education activities on the topic of bullying prevention in their countries.
Bullying is a problem experienced all over the entire world, including Ukraine. Ridicule, mockery, and bullying all restrict the emotional well-being and safety of children, young people. Without effective tools and teaching materials and ambassadors it is difficult for society to deal with these issues and difficult for people to learn. If a community consists of aware, considerate, caring citizens, then it becomes more safe and secure. When communities are safe and secure, communication, education, democracy, and equality all flourish.
One of main objectives of this project is involving young people in anti-bullying work through methods of non-formal education while empowering them for future educational work among youngsters. This promotes youth work and participation as they will be working with young people who have fewer opportunities. All of these values are in line with what many Europeans hope for.
The YiA program, training, and sharing sessions will help participants to support social development, open up new opportunities, acquire essential competencies, promote personal development, allow intercultural & diversity learning, and encourage creative/active participation. A wide variety of educational methods will be used and the participants will have the chance to try them out during the training.

Apel inchis : Facilitator Survival Kit-Malaga,Spania [DL:15.04.2014]

Training Course

8-16 April 2014 | Mollina (Málaga), Spain

Do you start to work with a group of people? Wants to know about facilitation? Here is the opportunity for you to get a “survival kit” in this theme, where you will be able to improve your knowledge and skills in facilitation, from theory to practice!

Facilitating group processes is a key component and an essential competence in present day youth work. For this reason, the aim of Facilitator Survival Kit is to provide participants with basic competences in facilitating group process with young people both in local, national and international context.

It will be a long training (9 days including travelling), where we will work the basic competences in facilitation, from a theoretical point of view (definition, styles, roles) as well as practice (experience from the participants and partner organizations, study cases; resources and tools in facilitation).
Please see the attached program for more info.

– Gain basic understanding of the concept of facilitation;
– share experiences regarding facilitation;
– raise awareness about the process of group dynamics;
– practice the facilitation competences gained during the course;
– gain knowledge about different aspects of the facilitation process;
– discuss different facilitation styles;
– promote cooperation between the different partners after the course;
– promote the Youth in Action programme as a tool for working with young people;
– provide resources and tools about facilitation (books, manuals, NFE centres, trainings…)

During the training the participants will be taking part in a number of activities where they will gain or increase their knowledge about the basic theory in facilitation and their own style as facilitators, sharing experiences and understanding the roles that are established within the group dynamics. They will develop skills, attitudes and strategies that a facilitator needs when leading a group, and they will acquire resources and tools that will allow them to keep on working on their competences as facilitators in the future.

The methods that will be applied are those of non formal education, where the learning is active and participative and it is centered in the learner and based in the experience.

This course is the second edition of this training; a couple of comments from the participants of the first edition were:
• I’m super satisfied with this course, I’ve learned some new things that I wasn’t expecting
• I’m very satisfied, mostly because of the self-development that I made. I really liked that there was many practical exercises. Everything was logically arranged and games supported theory
• The things I wanted to learn were addressed. I got inspiration, from the content and also from the trainers. They have spirit to the training I stretch, gained new resources and ways of efficient facilitating.

Reflective Practice, a UK Perspective

Training Course

Burnley, UK, 9-15th March 2014 (Open for participants from Estonia, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Turkey and UK)


This course aims to explore the theory of reflective practice in youth work from a UK perspective. The UK has over 60 years history of professional youth work which this course plans to highlight and demonstrate how this came to be. This course is open to participants based in EU countries as well as Turkey.


The course will take place in the town of Burnley, England (nearest airport is Manchester). During the course, participants will be taken to visit youth work settings in the region and have a chance to interact and ask questions to UK youth workers.


We will be exploring reflection based practice in order to better understand it so we can use it effectively in our own work setting. We will be using reflection throughout the week in order to assess our progress and see it in practice in UK based settings. From what we explore we hope that each participant will be able to implement what they learn into their own work in their own country. We will seek to share the benefits that we all see in order to get the most out of reflection and then look at how we might use it with others in our own culture.


During the course, participants will engage in various activities that explore the topic and look at reflective practice while discussing models for its growth and development in Europe. The course will also foster new collaborations between the partner countries and explain how to gain funding for future cooperation for international youth activity.


This project is the result of a desire to share reflective practice between European Countries, by taking a process-based approach that does not assume a level of understanding. Instead it builds on introducing the subject, exploring its relevance and applying it in the context of each country so the each participant will return home with something of real value.


Through the teaching of theory and practice via the use of interactive training we will share this knowledge and skills base with a range of professionals from other countries. The training will be facilitated by experienced and qualified professional Youth Workers, trained in reflective practice, from the UK. The trainers will deliver a curriculum on a range of subjects centered around the course objectives. These are focused on the learners participating and we aim to achieve the following:


Participants will be able to:

  • Identify what reflective-based practice is
  • Understand and explain the use of reflective practice
  • Locate reflective practice in the context of your own work
  • Share the benefits of reflective practice with others/those around you
  • Understand the challenges of implementing reflective practice in your work


The course also aims to foster partnerships between countries while also explaining how participants involved can continue activity with their new partners and where to access funds to do so.


The working language of this course is English, so participants will need to be proficient in their skill level. Participants are also expected to attend the full duration of the events.


Our organisation will cover participant’s food and accommodation costs, as well as 70% of your travel cost.


If you are interested to apply to participate in this training course, please fill this short online application form.
