Participants got to know about the topics of problem-solving, communication, advocacy, and experiential learning styles. The project was accompanied by various role plays and activities during which participants were able to develop their skills as youth workers and get a deep understanding of the differences between a session, a module, and an activity. During the last days, participants designed follow-up activities that they will organise in their countries to raise awareness about mentioned topics.

Participants were also acquainted with online tools and manuals on youth work which definitely will make their work easier as youth workers.


The project participants were Anna, Ani, and Narek. They mentioned that it was a very productive training in terms of getting knowledge and knowing how to implement gained skills in youth work.

"We now not only know about our learning styles but also we made one step forward in youth work to get competencies. The training helped us to become more professional to be able to engage more and more youngsters in youth work”, they said.

During the training, the Armenian team designed a module based on advocacy role play to get the knowledge of human rights, democratic processes, and the rule of law and to develop the competencies of problem-solving, civic participation, and networking of youth workers. The participants will organize sessions and activities aimed at having the attitude-responsibility for taking action, being willing to participate in decision-making and being engaged in democratic life among the youngsters. After the module's presentation, teams got feedback to make their modules better and to the point.

This contributed to effective cross-cultural interactions, the discovery of the strong side of each participant and the adoption of many creative methods and approaches to be applied in youth work.
