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.
