In a constantly radicalizing Europe, where borders and literal walls are built and not destroyed, where the political reality is turning to a radical right and where xenophobia is growing, we need youth to get involved! We witness alienation from political and civic life. To combat these tendencies, we are running a training to motivate and empower youngsters to become community activists! Thanks to the international setting this will not only be a sense of responsibility towards the local community, but also a feeling of belonging to a common Europe, a European citizenship. Through the practical part of the project participants will get equipped with a new set of tools to become active in their local community and in the International Voluntary Movement!
TARGET GROUP: the training is targeting youth with little experience in NGOs and civic life, but with a motivation and potential to get involved and become community activists and community leaders.
PROJECT AIM: The project aims to create a strong value base of human rights for actions in the local community and to train and empower participants with little experience in youth work to become active within their NGOs, within the International Voluntary Service movement and at large to take an active role in their society. Gathering youngsters from different background to discuss recent political issues, treats for our society - such as radicalization - will create a stronger network of likeminded activists from a diverse background working together for a more inclusive and tolerant society.
At the same time aiming for a younger target, millennials mostly will ensure the involvement of a new generation of youth work offering an alternative value set and world view next to radicalization and discrimination that we increasingly notice in today’s Europe.
METHODOLOGIES: during the project we will propose interactive methodologies, based on non formal education, where the different techniques like ice breakers, team building activities, energisers, role play games, are used to stimulate the interaction among participants. The aim is to involve the trainees in the active learning, to generate a permanent sharing and to facilitate the mutual exchange of experiences and knowledge. In each activity, the peer to peer approach will be actively encouraged: trainers and participants will share tools horizontally in order to guarantee the different approaches in learning and to facilitate its assessment.
EXPECTED OUTCOMES: At the end of the project it's expected that participants will get more involved with their local community taking leadership positions and active roles!
Also, it is expected that through the discussions and the meeting with the other participants – the peer to peer learning – participants will have a stronger stand and a better understanding on issues related to human rights.
Participants will also create a network of activists who know each other within the International Voluntary Service movement that will bring a new generation of activists to the movement and will offer them possibilities to cooperate in the future! At the same time this will strengthen their sending organisations.
PREPARATORY WORK: before the training participants will be invited to do some preparatory work: research and talk with their sending organisation to understand the fields and the programs are happening in their communities and with what they could potentially get involved.
Accommodation: participants will sleep in dormitories and shared rooms with bunk beds (6 to 8 beds), with shared bathrooms, hot showers and a kitchen. All facilities are provided except washing machine.
Food: Catering service will be provided for lunch and dinner. The group will support the preparation of breakfast and coffee breaks (with the food provided by the hosting organisations)
Participants will be asked to carry out the daily maintenance tasks, such as cleaning the common spaces and giving a hand in the kitchen (cleaning dishes, set the table, etc.).
Language: During the training, the official language is English. Conversational level of English is required to be able to participate in the program! Other languages should be used only for translation.
