Digital Youth

Training course for youth workers

Dates: 14. - 24. 5. 2021

Venue: Yerevan, Armenia

Countries involved: Czech Republic, Armenia, Poland, Italy, Greece, Slovakia, Georgia

Content of the project:

We have organized a Digital Youth project two times already in Turkey, this time we decided to move the boarders of our intercultural exploration even a bit further and to visit Armenia. The country is changing, but the idea of the project stays the same. There are two kinds of aims - the first one is to promote intercultural dialogue and tolerance by using various activities and games. The second one is to teach the participants to use audiovisual technology (camera, computer softwares). In the second half of the project, these two aims connect and the participants get the task to create a short movie with a message about intercultural tolerance and fighting against discrimination. This way, they gain not only the experience connected to creating a movie (preparation, shooting, editing, acting), but they also learn to work in a team under time pressure and plan their work on their own.

Finger-travelling

Youth exchange

Dates: 23. 8. - 4. 9. 2021

Venue: Slavňovice, Czech Republic

Countries involved: Czech Republic, Turkey, Greece, Romania

Content of the project:

It is becoming more and more important to learn to work in an intercultural team. The main aim of the project is to help young people to understand the cultural realities of other countries. We will be “finger-travelling” around Europe and we will “visit” 4 countries (since 4 countries are involved in the project). There will be one day dedicated to each country – the national team from this country will lead the programme and teach the others about their culture, history, traditions, etc. We will finish each day by cooking a typical dish for dinner. This way, the participants will learn about other cultures as well as develop their leadership skills. Besides that, we will organize debates and games in order to dive deeper into the intercultural dialogue. We will have plenty of time to enjoy our beautiful campsite – we can go canoeing, swim in the river, play games in the forest, etc. We will also organize a trip to Prague and the nearby town Tábor.

Nature and Primitive Technology (19. - 31. 8. 2020, Slavňovice)

Although the situation was quite tense until the very last moment, eventually, we managed to organize one more youth exchange at the end of the summer holiday. This time, the main topic was learning to live (and survive) in nature with using technology as little as possible, which is our main area of expertise. :) The participants from the Czech Republic, Croatia and Spain were developing a number of various skills - making a fire, using a canoe, moving around in a forest, recognizing edible mushrooms, etc. Together, they built a very nice wooden shelter and a sauna, which they used with great enthusiasm. The programme was lead mainly by our Spanish friend Isaac, who conducted debates about social issues and minimalistic way of life. The most impressive experience was without doubt the trip to the castle ruins in Příběnice, where we spent the night under the stars - we had sausages for dinner and spent a long time sitting by the fire, talking and enjoying the unique atmosphere of the old ruins. During the project, we also organized trips to Prague and Tábor - as always coming back to the campsite along the beautiful path next to the river Lužnice. We are happy we managed to spend the rest of the summer in a productive and cheerful way.

Be the leader!

Training course for youth workers

Dates: 1. - 10. 7. 2021

Venue: Slavňovice, Czech Republic

Countries involved: Czech Republic, Spain, Turkey, Italy, Slovakia, Latvia, Romania, Croatia

Content of the project:

Because we already have years of experience with connecting our summer camps with international projects, this year, we decided to bring this concept to a higher level. Instead of the traditional youth exchange, we are going to organize a training course for youth workers. The target group of the course are young people that are starting working with children - especially those, who would like to organize their own summer camps or similar activities in nature. During the training course, the participants will get to know the methods of non-formal education and they will experience concrete activities that they can use in their youth work. The project will focus a lot on the practical skills - since there will be a summer camp happening at the same time, the participants will have the unique opportunity to work directly with the children and to try preparing activities for them.

Summer Camp Adventure (26. 6. - 12. 7. 2020, Slavňovice, Czech Republic)

Even though we were a bit stressed about the pandemic, we eventually managed to organize an internationational summer camp (as we have been doing for many years now). The Erasmus+ youth exchange was attended by participants from Spain, Slovakia and even three Turkish participants, who were studying in Slovakia by that time. The programme of the youth exchange was quite rich. The participants were spending some time with the children, playing games prepared by us, such as the "good deeds" game, during which they explored the local neighborhood and interacted with the locals. A couple of times, they also prepared their own activities for the children - a "station rotation" with funny tasks, a night game teaching the children about archetypes, etc. With the Spanish leader Isaac, they experienced various activities and debates aiming to promote critical thinking, self-esteem and communication skills. Apart from these activities at the campsite, we also organized a trip to a nearby ruin Příběnice, to Tábor and to Prague. In our free time, we enjoyed swimming in the river, canoeing, volleyball and other outdoor activities and games. We enjoyed four national evenings, during which we learned about the cultures of the Czech republic, Spain, Slovakia and Turkey and tasted their traditional dishes. Overall, we had a good time and brought home many nice memories and valueable experiences.

Beginner's Guide to Youth Work (1. - 8. 3. 2020, Říčany, Česká republika)

Me and my colleague Isaac had been preparing this project since October and we were looking forward to it so much. It was a training course that gathered young people, who are just starting to work with youth and need to gain basic experience to build on. The morning parts of the programme were usually focusing on "leadership", the participants practiced their communication skills and discussed about the issues young people are facing in the contemporary world. The afternoon programme was about youth work - the participants presented their NGOs to the others, they themselves organized educational activities for others and tried to write their own Erasmus+ projects. To have a bit of a rest from the demanding programme, we organized a trip to Prague and also a variety of team-building games. We had the luck to gather a group of very motivated and active young people and we had a lot of fun working with them. Every evening, when we were sharing our "happy moments of the day", we had a lot of things to talk and laugh about.
