Training Course has been held in Galati, Romania between 03-10 July.
This Erasmus+ Youth KA1 Project-Energy, Ideas, Action, Change: Youth Worker Training Course (EAIC) to be carried out with 27 youth workers (YWs), who are actively working with young people (YP) to develop their skills and experiences around the use of art and culture, has been an engager to meet the employability needs of YP.
The project has equipped our YWs with skills with art cultural experiences around the employment/educational needs of YP from partner countries. Our YWs has also had the opportunity to develop innovative activities to use with YP in their home institutions in order to tackle the problems YP face such as insufficient skills, low qualifications, poor chances of employment, as well as social exclusion. The project has enabled YWs from Romania, Bulgaria, Poland and Turkey to come together in Galati in Romania for an intensive training course that has lasted six days. The trainings included workshops, practical activities and direct support to our YWs for being prepared to deliver training sessions that utilizes arts/culture to engage YP, support their employability and inclusion.
Participants from four different countries have presented the works they prepared within the scope of the project to each other as a workshop. With more informal learning activities, the different forms of education that the participants can offer to the youth in their countries has been recognized. The workshops put forward by the Turkish participants have been appreciated as the most useful work; as these activities required the attendance of all participants. The teachers from the Heart of a Child Association, which is the host foundation, conveyed some information regarding the useful work of their institution. In particular, the participants have shared the education they received by providing help to asylum-seeking and disabled children who came to Romania from Ukraine.
With this project, it has been discussed what kind of work can be done for young people and in what scopes the projects can be developed. It has been decided to carry out studies for the continuity of a few functional project ideas that emerged from brainstorms regarding project production.
