  • Familiarizing the 45 youth workers over 18 years of the 15 participating countries with methods and tools for teaching socio-educational animation to young beneficiaries within 10 days.

During the seminar will be organised sessions that will have as a theme subjects as: interactive communication, teamwork, drafting animation programs, security of participants in activities, methods to promote the activities and image of the organization, promoting socio-educational activities, coordination of a multidisciplinary animation team, implementation of animation activities etc.

The expected impact is represented by an increase in employability of at least 30% among the direct beneficiaries and the young people participating in activities organized by them, an increase of at least 30% of the number of activities organized by the participating organizations, since it can involve trained young people in organizing activities in the community as facilitators, an increase of at least 25% of extra school-activities organised in high schools / local schools due to youth involvement in organizing such activities voluntarily.
