The Project “INSPIRAL” is a training course that will bring together 24 Youth Workers, Leaders and
volunteers in order to give them tools to address important subjects as communication, self-development and leadership.
Participants will be involved in different activities through the methodology of non-formal education such as simulations, roleplaying, open space discussions, brainstorming, ice-breakers and reflection groups. By using non-formal education methods the trainers will emphasize to the participants the importance of dialogue on each level of their life, starting with their closest people, but also self-development and leadership from local to intercultural European level.
The development of such competencies will be helpful for young people to apply it in their everyday life, but most importantly in everyday work in their NGOs and local communities. As a result, participants of the project will become stronger leaders and will be able to organize a number of initiatives and share knowledge with their peers in their local communities.
