Training Course

2-6 July 2024 | Luxembourg City, Luxembourg

In 3 full working days, you will further develop your competences to make your group activities with overnight stays in the youth sector more inclusive and diversity sensitive.

Make your activities more inclusive and diversity-sensitive

Inclusion and diversity are important priorities in the European youth programmes, but not all activities are tailored to a wide range of needs. This training course invites youth workers, event organisers and facilitators to improve their practices to make their group activities with overnight stays in the youth sector (e.g. exchanges, courses, seminars, team volunteering) more inclusive so everyone is able to feel welcome and participate regardless of their individual background and needs.

Why participate?

In 3 full working days, you will further develop your competences to make your overnight group activities in the youth sector more inclusive and diversity-sensitive. In this course you will:

  • Reflect on why inclusion and sensitivity to diversity is important and how it relates to you and your organisation.
  • Become aware of the needs of (potential) participants and the variety of barriers that might hinder them to feel welcome and safe to participate .
  • Explore the different aspects of inclusive and diversity-sensitive activity design (including logistics, methods, team and communication) and understand how you can prepare for and adapt to barriers and needs.
  • Share (give and receive) practical tools, methods, resources and approaches that offer support in organising and facilitating inclusive and diversity-sensitive activities.
  • Learn from each other by sharing experiences and expertise.
  • Take concrete steps to improve your practice.

Note: this is not a basic project/activity/event management course.

A non-formal learning approach

Nobody is perfect, luckily! We can all learn from each other to improve our daily practices. You will get the time and space to share your professional and personal experiences.

Through a mix of inputs and non-formal methods (learning by doing, trying out, time for sharing and reflecting) we hope to empower you to get better in what you do. The course endeavours to be an example of an inclusive activity, so you can take tips, practices and tools from it to your own work.

Who is this training for?

  • This training is for youth workers who are implementing group activities with overnight stays in the field of youth. If you’re responsible for programme design, logistics, team or communication in activities, then this training is for you.
  • Ideally, you identify yourself as youth worker, trainer, event organiser or multiplier in the field of youth with hands-on experience (or potential) in organising activities. You can be active in an organisation, an informal group or as a freelancer, both in a paid or volunteer position.
  • We welcome beginners, experts and all profiles in between. What counts is that you’re open to learn more about designing inclusive and diversity-sensitive activities, and implementing it in your daily practice(s).

We especially invite participants that experience(d) participation barriers or discrimination themselves. We are happy to shape the conditions that allow it for you to work on this training.

Important to know

  • The working language will be (international) English. Your English does not have to be perfect, but you need to be able to follow presentations and have discussions in English. The facilitators are not native English speakers themselves.
  • You will be accommodated in single rooms.
  • To get the process started even before we meet, we invite you to a short online ‘onboarding meeting’ to prepare the course and answer your questions so that we can make full use of the time we have together.

You can find more information about the inclusion measures we have put in place for you in the additional information (download).
