Introduction

Short-term group projects, such as youth exchanges or volunteering teams, are a popular activity format within the EU youth programmes. They provide an excellent opportunity for young people to develop their ownership of learning processes and personal development. 

However, youth workers often face a challenge of improving the quality use of Youthpass in short-term group projects, especially when it comes to facilitating reflection and self-assessment for young people.

To address this issue, Youth and Lifelong Learning Foundation (Hellenic National Agency) organised the training course “LIST: Learning in short-term group projects” to provide youth workers and leaders with the necessary skills to support learning in short-term group projects. The training course will take place from 24-28 April 2023, in Porto Heli, Greece, at the AKS HOTEL.  

Now, let’s explore more details about it. Keep reading!

Overview of the LIST Training Course

The course aims to strengthen the learning dimension of short-term group mobilities involving young people as participants, with a specific focus on the use of Youthpass. It will cover several objectives, including:

  • discussing and understanding reflection
  • creating a learning environment for a diverse target group; 
  • reflecting on the competences required to facilitate individual and group learning and design educational programs;

The target group for this training course includes youth workers, leaders, project organisers, and mentors who work with young people in short-term group projects. 

Participants should have a keen interest in supporting the learning processes of young people. The course will make use of participatory group processes, including discussions and exploration of youth work reality and practice, individual and group learning, and the use of tools and methods to facilitate learning.

Applications are open now, and the deadline for submission is 26 March 2023. Selected participants will be informed of their selection on 31 March 2023.
