Noored Ühiskonna Heaks (NYH) is promoting a call for participants for a Long Term Training Course called A+ Group Work: Accepting Interculturality to Recognise Ambition, Manage Adaptation, Enable Action, and Be Assertive” which will take place from 23rd January until 1st February 2019 in Tortona, Italy.

“A+ Group Work” aims to support youth workers and educators in the development of their skills and the bettering of the activities and methodologies put into use when working on group and leadership dynamics; oriented towards a better awareness of interculturality with all disadvantaged groups in society.With this project, we aim to take a critical look at how group dynamics and leadership can be aided and abetted through a greater understanding of interculturality; rather than looking at it through the simplistic lenses of only national cultures, but through other forms of cultures and identifications as well: Different nations, regions, cities, backgrounds, economic and social class, gender identity, age, minority, religion, and much more. We will be focusing on methods on how to empower youths and youth workers to actively, effectively, and in an as “humanly”-friendly possible way, work together and lead each other.

By getting a better picture of what is necessary in working together with others, be they people of your in-group, minorities, refugees, or disadvantaged youths, intercultural understanding will definitely play a big role. And when it comes to leading a diverse group of people, being able to empower each individual comes with it’s own set of issues as well, whereby an understanding of how to accept power dynamics, cultural norms, and hierarchical roles play just as important a part in the entire dynamic.

The main aim of the project, therefore, is to raise awareness of the roles of interculturality and intersectionality in group and leadership dynamics in order to tackle the social exclusion of minorities, migrants, refugees, and disadvantaged youths with the help of non-formal methodologies.

This event will bring together 20 participants from Italy, Ireland, Belgium, Czech Republic, Estonia, Slovakia, France, Spain, Finland and Turkey. The event will be held in English. There are 2 vacancies available and participants should be minimum 18 years old.

The Erasmus + Programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse 100% of the travel costs for the participants – up to 275 euros. There will be a participation fee of 40 Eur. per participant.
