Youth Catalyst is an 8-day training for trainers, designed for those who want to become trainers or facilitators in the field of non-formal education (NFE) and experiential learning (EL) and they have already took the first steps and need support in order to move further.
The main question is how to create a learning environment where young people from diverse groups feel welcome, included and safe to grow. So the training will look into, first, how to design quality tailor-made content, second, how to facilitate it in a meaningful way.
Because we believe in learning by doing, the training will be very practice oriented, applying the new tools, receiving feedback, reflecting and re-applying it again, all in a safe environment to experiment and grow. It will address holistic learning, that is learning by mind, body and heart. You can expect a very dynamic and colorful learning experience.
what do we focus on
How do I catalyze change in young people?

The trainer roles, competences, ethics and styles, including clarifying your own trainer style, values and strengths, becoming more confident when working with groups
Flexibility and ability to react on the spot, in front of the group, outlining an own development plan and learning activities implementation plan
