The training course for trainers of “Projecting YOUth” ended successfully.

From the 29/02/2016 to the 06/03/2016 representatives and youth educators of the three partner organisations of “Projecting YOUth” met in the Spanish city of Logroño in order to share the materials and work done on the previous stages of the project, and train themselves for the future workshops for young people that will take place in all the partner countries involved on the project within the next months. 

Seven representatives from the three partner organisations of “Projecting YOUth” (ON&OFF as coordinator (Spain), Calypso - il teatro per il sociale (Italy) and IFALL - Integration För Alla (Sweden) as partners) met together in the North of Spain to test and improve the pedagogic products created for the project. During the previous weeks to the event, each partner developed different learning materials to educate young people on personal and professional skills that could allow them to carry out their own theater projects or cultural events, promoting at the same time their employability. To make this possible, each participant attending the training implemented his/her theoretical work and exercises developed on the last months but using always as a base the principles of Howard Gardner about multiple intelligences. According to this, participants on the event run different workshops and activities focused on developing those horizontal skills needed to be successful in any personal and professional field and divided on ten units about different topics that were tested during the five days of activities: How to develop an artistic and youth project; the interpersonal intelligence; the intrapersonal intelligence; the musical intelligence; the kinesthetic intelligence; the logical-mathematical intelligence; the naturalistic intelligence; the linguistic intelligence; the visual-spatial intelligence; and a unit about funding and implementation of artistic and youth projects. 

Once all the intellectual outputs designed for the training were tested, those trainers responsible of their creation worked on their evaluation, improvement and adapted them to be used for the next phase of the project: ten local workshops that the project will run simultaneously on each partner country and that will give the possibility to 45 young people to learn about the creation of new artistic projects, meanwhile they develop their personal and professional skills for a future integration on the labor market. Out of the general programme of work of the training, the event gave also to its participants the opportunity of getting to know the best practices of ON&OFF at local level for the education and inclusion of youth, and meeting other local stakeholders on this field such as the Instituto Riojano de La Juvenud (the Riojan Institute for Youth) or the youth centre for municipal services La Gota de Leche of Logroño (city where the training course took place). All the photos of the training are available on its Facebook group.

Asociación Juvenil Teatral ON&OFF as coordinator of this Erasmus+ initiative, will host between the 29/02/2016 and the 06/03/2016 in Logroño (Spain) the training course for those trainers who will work with the young people taking part on this project in order to develop their own theatre and artistic projects for social development.

Seven representatives from the three partner organisations of “Projecting YOUth” (ON&OFF as coordinator (Spain), Calypso - il teatro per il sociale (Italy) and IFALL - Integration För Alla (Sweden) as partners) will take part on this training activity in order to transfer among them all the knowledge and content of the intellectual outputs created during the previous stages of the project. According to this, the main objective of this activity is to capacitate those trainers who will run the local workshops on each country that the project aims to implement in spring 2016, and focused on educating young people on personal and professional skills that could allow them to develop their own theater projects or cultural events to promote at the same time their employability. 

Beside these trainers, the experts from the mentioned countries who created these products will also participate on the training. This will make possible not only to transfer all the materials created during the project to the trainers that will use them with young people in the next months, but also to solve any doubts that they could have concerning the implementation of the exercises designed or how to deal with the documents to justify the mentioned workshops. 

Out of the general programme of work of the training, the event will give also to its participants the opportunity of getting to know the best practices of ON&OFF at local level for the education and inclusion of youth, meeting the staff of the organisation and discovering the facilities of the entity (on which the training course will take place).

End of the first transnational meeting of “Projecting YOUth”

The Italian city of Pavia hosted between the 2nd and 5th of December 2015 the first transnational meeting of the project that joined together seven representatives from the three partner organisations of this initiative and also local users and staff of Calypso, the host of the event.

During two complete days of work, the team of “Projecting Youth” (composed by project coordinators and theatre experts/trainers of Asociación Juvenil ON&OFF (Spain), Calypso - il teatro per il sociale (Italy) and IFALL - Integration För Alla (Sweden)) met together in order to work on the first steps of the project and set the final programme and procedures to be done during its whole implementation.

To begin with, members of each partner had the chance to introduce to the group their organisations, staff, history, target groups, structures and best practices run at local or international level and related to the objectives and topics of “Projecting YOUth”. Once all the entities and their representatives were presented, partners went through all the logistics and administration guidelines to be followed during the project and related to the implementation and justification of its activities. 

After that, all the participants started to deal with the main intellectual output of the project: a booklet based on the theory of multiple intelligences of Hodward Gardner to train young people on personal and professional skills that could allow them to develop their own theater projects or events and promoting at the same time their employability. Thanks to the framework of dialogue created during the meeting, all the attendees were able to work on this material, clarify the methodologies to develop it, share the tasks to be completed and agreed how it should be not only designed, but also tested and improved.

Out of the work related to the project, Calypso as hosting partner of the meeting invited the project participants to visit some local activities of the organization related to the project field (such as a theater play in a social centre or a rehearsal of a youth theatre group in a local secondary school) and organized a public closing ceremony. The ceremony allowed not only to introduce the project to the local community of Pavia, but also other activities of the entity thanks to video projections, users testimonies, presentations and a short performance made by young members of the entity.

In case you want to get more information about this initiative funded by the Key Action 2 of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission, you can visit the different sections of this website, follow the development of the project through its Facebook page or contact any of the project partners.

First meeting of the "Projecting YOUth" in Pavia, Italy

The Italian city of Pavia will host between the 2nd and 5th of December 2015 the first transnational meeting of this project that will allow young participants from Italy, Spain and Sweden to acquire different personal skills and professional competences by using theater as a learning tool.

Funded by the Key Action 2 of the Erasmus+ programme of the European Commission and coordinated by Asociación Juvenil ON&OFF (Spain) with the support of Calypso - il teatro per il sociale (Italy) and IFALL - Integration För Alla (Sweden), the main aim of this one-year partnership is to join organisations from different countries in order to work together and exchange good practices related to the training of young people on personal and professional skills that could allow them to develop their own theater projects or events and promoting at the same time their employability. To achieve this, partner organisations will design and develop different workshops to provide concrete competences to young people using as a base the theory of multiple intelligences of Hodward Gardner and its intelligence modalities. Even if these workshops will be especially focused on training young people to develop drama and theater projects and events, these materials will be suitable for any kind of young person who aims to promote him/her own internal development and acquire horizontal basic competences for any kind of position within the labor market and on the professional field.

This first meeting in Italy will not only provide partners a framework of dialogue to work on the next project steps but will also make possible to discover the best practices on youth and drama education carried out regularly by Calypso, hosting entity of the event.
