Trained youth workers in Georgia
Regional Summer Academy alumni Sulkhan Chargeishvili is using Share&Connect as an integrated part of a long term training course for emerging youth workers in Georgia.
he duration of the training is eight months and divided into three phases: Online learning, 8 days residential seminar and finally implementation of local projects including non-formal education initiatives around Georgia in collaboration with schools.
“The main aim of the training is to give youth workers the skills and competences to facilitate and design their own education projects using non-formal education tools. The activities are based on the Council of Europe Charter on Education for Democratic Citizenship and Human Rights Education”’, Sulkhan explains.
“We are trying to create a space where youth workers will be able to use EDC/HRE methods in non-formal education and thus also cooperate with schools around the country”, he adds.
The residential seminar took place May 10-18. The participants planned their projects, which are now under implementation. In November a two-day evaluation conference will be organized in Tbilisi.
“At the residential seminar we evaluated the use of Share&Connect and there was general agreement that it was very important to be part of such a community. Share&Connect was a great tool to design projects and also to share feedback with each other”, Sulkhan says.
The project is implemented and financed by the Children and Youth National Center, Ministry of Youth Affairs in Georgia.
