Bringing creative methods, project management and critical reflection together: This training course invites partipants to increase their capacity in addressing youth participation and anti-racism from a holistic perspective for positive social change.
Are you a youth worker who is passionate about engaging youth in anti-racism and social justice? Do you want to develop your capacities in working towards counteracting racism and xenophobia in your daily work?
PeaceWorks, together with our partner organisations, are offering a training course on anti-racism for youth workers. We see an increasing need for practical knowledge and strategies on how to tackle xenophobia and racism in contemporary Europe. We often meet people in the youth sector who express concern regarding the relationship between the rise of xenophobia and racism among young people and the decreasing youth participation in society. The training course addresses these issues by strengthening the capacities of youth workers in counteracting racism, implementing anti-racist projects and actively adopting an anti-racist perspective in their work.
When and Where?
The project consists of two course weeks, we are now recruiting for the second course week:
TC2: 31st of March to 9th of April 2023 (including two days for travelling). Location: Lamia, Greece.
Who can participate?
This is a project for youth workers who want to develop their capacities in anti-racist work through a systemic approach and creative methods. The requirements for participation are as follows:
You should be at least 18 years old
You should have been working with young persons for at least 6 months
Ideally, you should have experience with working with youth from different social backgrounds.
Moreover, it is important that participants are willing to reflect on their own position as youth workers, different power dynamics, norms and stereotypes as well as their own role in reproducing these.
