Erasmus+ Training: Under Pressure – Wellbeing for Changemakers | 13 – 18 August

As youth workers and trainers/facilitators, we face the challenge of creating programmes and activities that meet the needs of participants in terms of wellbeing. Creating spaces in which participants feel safe and well is the basis for further learning and personal development. But we also need to keep in mind our own wellbeing to be able to perform well in our roles. Finding the balance might be difficult, especially when we are volunteering (in our free time) besides other obligations.

This training targets trainers, facilitators, and young people who are engaged in youth work. The training course is oriented on participants’ needs, focusing on their wellbeing and supporting young people in projects or activities. It will take place in the EUROPAHAUS in Neumarkt in der Steiermark from 13 to 18 August 2021. All costs for meals and accommodation are covered by Erasmus+: Youth in Action. There will be no participation fee for participants.

There is still a spot left, so if you are interested, you can find out more and apply here.
