The project associated 24 youth workers from different countries: Lithuania, Greece, Romania, Turkey, Hungary, Italy, Bulgaria and Poland. It took place in Zakopane, Poland. The aim of the training course was raising youth workers' awareness concerning realization of various types of initiatives.
By undertaken acions we aimed at presenting the ways of proper project management - beginning with the planning phase, gaining partners and transfering plans into reality. We also put emphasis on accountancy issues and the process of project results dissemination.
Paricipation in the training course enabled youth workers to develop their talent and potential. Presentation and acquirement of new methods of work - including coaching techniques, allowed them to implement good practices in the work with local communities and resulted in perspectives for realization of future actions on the international level in a more efficient way.
Due to personal development youth workers will influence positively the attitudes of local youth. Newly gained experience will help them to instill in young people eagerness and motivation to undertake actions. By those means young people will more actively participate in social initiatives.The fact that the course was held in international environment positively influenced blurring cultural barriers and minimizing, often negative, stereotypes concerning other nations. It helped in developing the attitudes of tolerance and mutual respect towards other cultures.
Thanks to the fact that the course was managed by two professionally qualified trainers, supported by a facilitator, who took benefit of their working experience, the quality of transmitted knowledge was additionally raised.
Considering long term benefits, implementation of openness and kindness towards other cultures will be transferred to young people cooperating with youth workers, which will result in developing desirable social attitudes.
Despite raising youth workers' qualifications and their personal development the following training course was aimed at promoting intercultural dialog. Due to mutual cooperation we hoped to establish stable and reliable contact network, which enables us to promote good relations not only between our nations but which also serves as an example for other nationalities.
