Erasmus+ project “Activate your strengths through art – Immersing YOU(th) in the job markets of the future” was a memorable and inspiring experience that gathered 32 educators from Germany, Greece, Poland, Romania, Spain, Ukraine on a 7-day training course in Berlin (August 2021).
Sessions held by facilitators helped the participants to learn how to design workshops and experience non-formal, creative methods for youth work. The training course was hosted in the forest area Grunewald in Abenteuerzentrum Berlin with amazing outdoor activities and nature sights. The daily structure consisted of working on mental health issues, positive psychology and exploring artistic methods that are needed while structuring projects. Apart from interesting full day workshops, the participants had a chance to work in a multicultural environment, enjoy international evenings prepared by every country and build long lasting friendships.
Some highlights from the participants:
“This was a unique opportunity for us that opened new directions in our social work and helped us to create skills that we need in the education and job market.”
“How all of us were connected, worked together, and of course had fun was something incredible. Even though we came from different backgrounds, the atmosphere in our big intercultural group was amazing the whole week. Life changing experience!”.
