mladi22Training course
1-6 June 2012 | Vilnius, Lithuania

Training course aims to develop youth worker’s competence in building and maintaining individual relationship with a young person in relevant contexts.

Big part of youth work consists of individual contact with a young person. We can find many situations, where youth worker needs to have individual conversation with a young person in order to enhance his personal growth, give feed- back on his behaviour in the group, discuss issues of gender etc. One-to-one communication is the most intensive and common form of communication. It is the obvious and natural form, but professionals need training to develop competence in order to support young person’s development through individual process.

We want to invite potential participants – youth workers, who work with groups of young people as well as individually with young person within different contexts, topics and/ or actions of Youth in action programme (EVS, Youth initiatives, Youth exchanges etc.) – to engaging, based on needs 4 full days training programme.
