European training course aiming at empowering young people with fewer opportunities and their coaches to set up youth initiatives.
Within the Youth in Action programme a group of at least four young people can set up a so called youth initiative, a project designed and run by young people in their own environment and get money to make it happen. If they want they can have a coach to support them in the project and learning process. This training course is specifically aimed at tandems of a young person and a coach.
Are you a youngster who is willing to turn a crazy idea in a local project? Are you ready to dive into the process of setting up a project designed and run by you? Are you up for meeting other youngsters from all over Europe to learn from each other and share your enthusiasm for your project idea?
Or are you a young person, youth worker or coach who wants to support the learning process in a youth initiative? Are you willing to discover what it means that a youth initiative is a self-directed learning experience and figure out how you can support this process as a coach?
Are you both ready to form a tandem in this training course and learn, laugh, walk and do so much more together?
Then you are the participants we are looking for!
The aims of this training course include:
- to include young people with fewer opportunities in society in general and in this training course in particular
- to empower youngsters to take initiative/action and to stimulate their active participation in the local community
- to create a safe non-formal learning environment
- to enable participants to set up projects in their local community by using the Youth in Action programme
- to prepare the coaches for their supporting role
- to provide basics of project management to enable the tandems to apply for a youth initiative.
