Arrival November 17th; departure November 24th 2018Korneuburg, Austria
The project is based on sharing experience, all participants will be actively involved in the TC. Together we will be addressing the challenges, but also looking for solutions.
With this TC we would like to motivate youth workers:
1: To continue with their work - by discussing with them the challenges they face and guide them in understanding their target group. Having expectations, which do not correspond the needs of thetarget group often leads to discouragement, therefore it is essential to differ between one’s own expectations and the actual needs or wishes of the target group.
2: To learn – by providing them with information on where to find literature and look for training opportunities. Youth workers, who know how to tackle the challenges by attending training coursesand educating themselves, will have less problems with loosing motivation.
3: To address their struggles openly - by encouraging the entire group to share their experiences and discover different approaches of dealing with difficult situations. When sharing the experience, youthworkers will discover that they are not alone with their struggles. We will establish a platform, where the group will be able to stay connected even after the project. In this way participants will have aplatform to discuss challenges and ask for an advice. Since we believe, that there is no universal recipe for motivating the others, we are not only implementing workshops, which should help regaining motivation, but most importantly bring a group of different minds together to discuss, support and inspire each other.
4: To use the gained knowledge in their daily work when motivating participants and developing inclusive projects.
