Training Course - mobility for youth workers
Dates: 5-14 October 2019 (including travel days).
Venue: Rossio Hostel, Aveiro, Portugal
Participants should arrive before 19:00
ABOUT THE TRAINING COURSE
"Home Away from Home - empowering local NGOs to take an active role in migrants’ integration process" aims at providing participants with first-hand information about immigration in Europe and practical tools that can be used when working with this topic in their local communities. It is designed to introduce participants to the topic of migrations and current situation in Europe regarding migrants and refugees, while sharing with them tools for fighting discrimination and building a more inclusive society.
WHAT? “Home Away from Home” is a ten-day training course with the objective of providing participants with theoretical and practical knowledge on the current situation of migrants and refugees in Europe, as well as with tools for understanding this issue, fighting discrimination and shaping their community into a more understanding and inclusive one.
WHY? Since 2015 until today millions of refugees started their journey to Europe, coming mostly from war-torn Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. These people ran from unbearable life conditions in their countries, searching for safety and future for themselves and their families. Their way to Europe is full of obstacles and difficulties and what they encounter once they finally reach Europe is often devastating. They face discrimination, stereotypes, exclusion, and even violence. At the same time, media are either not reporting about it or they are sending incorrect and not rarely, misleading information. This creates an atmosphere of lack of understanding, discrimination, and prejudice towards refugees. In order to change this atmosphere, we would like to provide young people with knowledge and tools which they can use to make a change.
HOW? Through workshops, lectures, interactive presentations, and discussions hosted by experts on the subject, participants will learn and practise different approaches to this situation which will hopefully inspire them to act and implement new inclusive projects in their own local community.
WHO? 25 participants from 6 countries - Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal. The training course is especially designed for beginners in the field of youth or social work, willing to start working with the topic of inclusion in their local communities. These are the target groups that the training course can benefit the most.
