International training program

Social Inclusion of particularly vulnerable young refugees through non-formal education is a long-term training course to promote social inclusion of particularly vulnerable young refugees through non-formal education (NFE). The training is designed for 25 professionals from Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Italy and Turkey working directly with the target group. Through the project, the participating youth workers will be familiarized and equipped with NFE tools, but will also create, test and consolidate adapted NFE tools that will be gathered and presented in a toolkit, also for other youth workers to use.

The participants are social or youth workers, intercultural mediators, educators and refugee community leaders interested in learning more and reflecting on NFE methods they are willing to use or have been using already.

The program consists of 3 international training meetings:

  • Kick-off training “Social Inclusion of particularly vulnerable young refugees” (17-22 November 2019 in Solingen, Germany)
  • Job- shadowing: Job shadowing in Bologna, Italy for five selected participants
  • Consolidation training and final conference (23-27 March 2020 in Sofia, Bulgaria)
