Name of the project: “Educate Like a Boss’’ Training Course
Date: 24th October – 02nd November 2022
City/Country: Kolín, Czech Republic.
What was the main topic of the event?
Karolin Käsper – Learn more about non formal education, to know more about tools and methods on educating/training, how to facilitate a project
Ksenija Akimova – The main topic was project facilitation with the main aim of building competences of youth to develop, conduct and evaluate educational activities.
Natalie Li Lind – The traing course was for youth workers, that wanted to learn about non-formal learning methods and get new tools to use in their work. During the 8 day project participants had a chance to learn about communication, teamwork, different learner types etc. Both on a theoretical and practical level.
What were the biggest learning moments of the event for you?
Karolin Käsper – When i had to work in different groups and prepare presentations/workshops/activities for others and learning how to better organize everything from the preparation to execution
Ksenija Akimova – One of the biggest learning moments for me was when I realised how hard it actually is to make a workshop. There are so many aspects that I did not even take into consideration before but now I’m aware of these blind spots and how to handle them.
Natalie Li Lind – That would be preparing and facilitating a workshop.
Do you have any plans to continue being active in the field? If yes, in which way?
Karolin Käsper – I would like to be a part of an organizing team in future workshops/projects and to implement all the leader/organizing skills in my everyday life too.
Ksenija Akimova – Yes, I would love to work on my own project or develop several workshops that could be implemented.
Natalie Li Lind – Yes, I’m planning on staying active in NYH, coordinating ESC volunteers.
Would you recommend this experience to your friends? If yes, why? If no, why not?
Karolin Käsper – For sure! I would recommend this highly!! It was such a well structured training course and i liked the flow of it. Most of the things were easily understandable however there were also challenging moments that I appreciate a lot, to be pushed out of my comfort zone and try a different approach
Ksenija Akimova – Definitely and already! It’s a great opportunity for youth to learn, improve skills, get to know different cultures and realize how impactful even small actions can be!
Natalie Li Lind – I continue recommending youth mobility programmes to my friends, because they have helped me grow as a person and I think that most people can benefit from such projects.
