Details:
The general aim of Power to You(th) is to boost and expand the capacity of youth workers and youth leaders to support the empowerment of young people with fewer opportunities and to increase inclusive youth-led participation within their organisation on a long term basis by implementing the new Erasmus+ Youth/European Solidarity Corps projects. We define empowerment as the learning process in which people become aware of their own potential, learning needs and limitations and the ability to take up their own responsibility to act upon this in a healthy, responsible relationship towards others and the society. This blended learning experience is providing a space for youth workers and youth leaders to further explore this concept, specifically for working within the target groups of fewer opportunities.
The objectives of the training course are:
• To explore the concept of empowerment, its potential and relevance and the link between empowerment and inclusive youth-led participation;
• To reflect on the role of youth workers/youth leaders and the organisations for empowerment of young people with fewer opportunities;
• To discover the value of the Erasmus+ Youth Programme/ European Solidarity Corps projects as a tool for youth empowerment and inclusive youth-led participation;
• To experience, explore and share inspirational tools, methods and good practices on empowerment which can be transferred to working reality (both face-to-face and online/digital activities).
The blended training programme is composed of the following activities:
• Activity 1 – Online phase: An introduction to Empowerment (7th and 9th March 2022,10:30-13:00 CET).
Individual tasks will be required for each afternoon and for 8th March.
• Activity 2 – Residential phase: Empowerment: the concept, sharing tools and experience, reflection and exploration.(Arrival day: 30 March 2022 – 2nd April 2022, departures after lunchtime).
• Activity 3 – Local implementation of Empowerment based activities with target group young people (2nd April – 11 May 2022).
• Activity 4 – Online phase: Impact of Empowerment activities (12 May 10:30-13:00 CET).
Power to You(th) will be supported with an online community space to enhance the overall learning experience. Currently activity 2 is planned to be hosted residentially in Luxembourg. In case the COVID-19 situation prevails and prevents travelling, the organisers will explore the possibility of transferring to a fully online environment.
