Call for participants for a training course in Mersin, Turkey
CYA Krik issues a call for 3 participants for a training course in Mersin, Turkey
“imProve leAdership Skills Through Storytelling-PASTs” is a training course for potential partners of Youth Exchanges in frame of Erasmus+ Youth programme. We have been working on this project to train youth leaders who are interested in non-formal educational activities to reach many more youngsters to be part of life and find a way to conquer their capacity and skills to find a profession to walk on the earth. It is known that all of our educational activities and effort are to get knowledge, shape our character and most important one is to improve their skills for a profession. In most of curricula, there is not so much how to let youngsters improve their leadership skills for their future. There is not a class to empower pupils to be a powerful person to lead the rest, either. These results show that we need to provide alternatives that escape from the formal standards, in order to solve these problems. Non formal education gives the chance to young people to develop a number of competences through different kind of activities.
