Welcome to the world of YOUTHIFICATION
Subkult organized the training course YOUTHIFICATION in 2016 for the first time and last year in 2017 for the second edition, 32 youth workers gathered on the Swiss Alps to explore the topic of youth centers.
The project in 2017 was focusing on experienced youth workers from 11 countries from Europe who are working in different kind of youth centers, youth clubs or youth structures. We are now happy to be able to organise the third edition of the project this year.
The training course will take place from 20th until 29th of August 2018 in Leysin, Switzerland. The focus of this year’s training course will be a bit different, also the target group. We are targeting FACILITATORS and YOUTH WORKERS who are leading GROUPS of young people within their youth organisations. From one hand, we would like to develop competences of the youth workers in managing different behaviours in a group, dealing with challenges related to different roles in a group, group dynamics, facilitating group discussions, verbal and non-verbal communication. From the other hand, in the second part of the training course, we want to offer a safe learning environment where the participants will have to implement short 40 minutes workshops in pairs and directly apply in practice the methods and tools learned during the training course. At the end, they will get constructive feedback from their colleagues and trainers which will contribute to their learning process even more.
