This Training Course will take place in our youth centre Támaszpont MOPKA in Veresegyház, the working language will be English (but a Hungarian facilitator will be present) and it is designed for active youngsters who would like to become leaders for youth exchanges and/or local activities. The training is divided in 4 levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced and expert. Every participant is going to achieve specific competences for being a good youth leader. The approach is non-formal, the methodology is learning by doing and the participants will follow specific and practical tasks to learn proper educational tools in a fun and meaningfull way. Every level´s training will take place during one weekend, starting from Friday afternoon and finishing on Sunday in the late afternoon. The participants will sleep in the youth centre and will cook together.
The trainers are experts in this sector and already collected several years of experience. Lauko Szofi (Hungarian) is an expert project manager and project designer. She has lead the Roma community youth centre in Budapest for several years already. Lilla Horváth (Hungarian) is a youth worker and expert in youth exchanges and the dynamics of groups.
