TC “Youthification” in Switzerland (2016)

Date: September 9 – 17, 2016

Place: Leysin, Switzerland

Role of Doctor Cinema: Partner organization

30 participants coming from 15 countries took part in a Training Course “YOUTHIFCIATION” organized by SUBKULT. The main aim of the project was to empower young people to engage actively in youth organisations and develop their understanding of non-formal education. During 7 working days participants had a chance to clarify their opinion on Youth Work (Definition, Purpose, Core Values, Areas, Effective models) and the role of the youth worker in different processes, got familiar with Curriculum Development Model, Kolb Learning Cycle, also received electronical copies of manuals for Youth Workers (HANDBOOK- for facilitators, “Have Your Say!”). Participants also experienced different activities that can be useful for them while organizing new projects at local and international levels.

“The research has confirmed what I often hear – quite simply,

most people get involved because they are asked to”.

Kirby Swales, director at Renaisi
