One 29th and 30th June 2017, Eurodiaconia hosted its ‘Training 4 Trainers’ event in Brussels, as part of the ongoing Erasmus+ project “Empower You(th)! Training of innovative models and methods in youth work”. In order to support young people in facing contemporary challenges such as multiculturalism, digitalization and social exclusion, the project aims to deliver youth workers with the necessary knowledge, skills and competences on how to best tackle today’s challenges.
To this end, the Training 4 Trainers event brought together youth workers from 6 countries across Europe, in order to allow the exchange of best practices in youth work, to discuss diverse innovative methods, and to develop these methods to be applied in various geographical settings.
The two-day training brought together youth workers from the organisations participating in the project, including Svenska Kyrkan from Sweden, Kirkens Bymisjon from Norway, Diakonie Kosova from Kosovo, Slezská Diakonie from the Czech Republic, Diaconia Valdese from Italy and as a partner, the Armenia Round Table Foundation from Armenia.
