Give yourself time and space to grow and fly. In simple words, that’s what preventive education is about. Nevertheless, it takes time and practice to assimilate prevention work and to deliver it to your beneficiaries, and that’s what we plan to do in this project. This project aims at bringing preventive education as close as possible to the final beneficiaries of this concept, namely teenagers. We invite you to join an intensive educational process on preventive education that consists of three phases:
Phase 1: 11-19 June, Training Course in Romania. We will explore methods on preventive education and will discover others’ practice and expertise in addressing this topic with teenagers at a local level. We expect 3 participants / country.
Phase 2: 20 June – 1 August. Local activities in each country, using the methods experienced in the Training Course. To be discussed during the TC.
Phase 3: 6 – 14 August, YE in Romania with the youngsters who attended the local activities. One of the participants from the TC will be a national GL (Group Leader). Each national group is formed bye 4 pax + 1 GL. Each partner will select the group for the YE.
The goal of this activity is to equip you with a very good understanding of the impact created by the prevention work among teenagers and on how this concept should be delivered. We will cover many topics, such as development of addictions, cycle of addictions, principles of prevention work, creation of preventive educational methods, local transferability. You, as a participant, will be part of a great opportunity to collecting relevant methods, tools, principles and other elements from those who are involved in this field.
This TC (Training Course) is dedicated to professionals who are active in youth work, education, teaching, social work, support services for young people, psychologists, youth leaders, facilitators, trainers, etc., and have a clear interest in exploring the topic of preventive education in general, and prevention of substance abuse in particular.
For the TC we expect to have a group of motivated professionals who have experience in working with groups of youngsters and have organizational support for transferring the practice in their work. The working language will be English, therefore an average level of speaking, reading, and listening is desirable. Nevertheless, should any confirmed participant need support for translation and interpretation, we will be happy to assist with this aspect during the TC.
