Welcome evening & Getting to know each other

Application forms, travel arrangements, packing and handling the way up to the Swiss Alps in Leysin is finally over and it is in the past. All participants arrived on time and met their roommates and colleagues with whom they are going to spend the next 8 days. Subkult took care everyone to have the right information in order to prepare themselves for the training course.

The most important thing at the beginning, of course, to learn the names, something more about each other and celebrate the official start of the project. The first moments in getting to know each other could be very precious as they build the image of the person right away. What is hidden behind that first impression, the participants have 8 days to dig deeper and to discover other perspectives of the diverse personalities represented here. So many different cultures mixed together, so many different stories yet to be told, therefore the welcoming evening offered the safe learning space to share and explore. From tomorrow we are starting with the topic of the training course: facilitating groups of young people, youth work, handling needs of individuals in the group, different behaviors etc. Lot to come and lot to learn.


People left the working room with positive vibes, even though they were very tired from the trips, which in some cases lasted longer than 30 hours. Well-deserved rest for everyone and tomorrow we continue to explore and learn about facilitation of groups in non-formal setting. Stay tuned.
