This training is aimed at trainers and youth workers, teams of organizations, active volunteers attracted by the idea of giving themselves to youth work or a cause. It encourages personal reflection and rethinking, reaches deep, underlying foundations, and helps to develop the skills necessary for modern life to adapt, be resilient, work through stress, identify limiting beliefs, and most of all, search for one’s own meaning and mission. This is key in “igniting” the motivation to develop in a profession or vocation.
Another focus of the training is the ability to connect with others, to create, develop and support communities, to foster greater social engagement and a sense of belonging that has been lost due to social ties being broken for a number of reasons. A key element in this is the transmission of experience, which happens most successfully through storytelling. And a story lives in its interpretations, and to be truly impactful it must be authentic, emotional, honest. And told in a unique way! How? This training will offer improv practice, a dramaturgical structure used in unforgettable films and glamorous speeches by presenters, who have changed the world.
The emphasis of the training is non-violent communication, as a form of communication that can be applied in interpersonal and professional life. Because it is not only important to be able to speak, but what and how we say, so that we can preserve ourselves, assert ourselves to the world, and stand up for ourselves without destroying others around us. Is it possible? Yes. The skill of meaningful communication is developed and training will provide a safe environment of trust, tolerance and support for this. So that everyone can come out of their shell, rethink past traumatic moments, put their feelings into words, their expectations, their concerns… To become themselves.
