Apply Now – 7 days training course in Romania

The training will take place from 29 June – 7th of July 2022 , in Oradea, Romania

Peace with Me is a 7-day training course which aims to support a network of youth workers that promote a preventive approach on conflicts and violence among their beneficiaries. We see this project as a follow-up initiative which creates added value for the participants in terms of a deeper understanding of violence and a strengthened international cooperation in this field.

The methodology prepared involves three dimensions of the learning process: acquiring knowledge, practical experience and reflective evaluation. Encouraging systemic thinking, the process will propose three perspectives of understanding violence: visualizing its complexity, verbalizing and expressing its complexity, and exploring the reality of the topic in many aspects. Expect to have an intense working week with a wide range of methods, from research-based tasks to fully artistic sessions, guided in a safe learning space

Who is the project for?

The project is designed for youth workers, volunteers and other people who work with people with fewer opportunities on a daily basis. We designed a methodology which is helpful for workers who are active in the field of youth, education, social services, public services, religious based organizations or any other entity that is engaged with youngsters. We expect to have a group of participants who are eager to transfer the methodology in a practical way in their groups of youngsters and also to promote the concept of preventive education in their daily work. We will work on the transferability of the results during the whole week.

Each participant will prepare a homework before attending the event. We strongly encourage the sharing dimension of the learning process, so be ready to bring with you real examples from your work. The minimum age limit is 18, without any other limitation. A good command of English is desirable, but not compulsory.

We aim to have an overall number of 26 participants from Romania, Latvia, Estonia, Denmark, Turkey, Macedonia and the UK.
