MAC YOUTH - My action: Coaching for Youth

 

Training Course

24-31 October 2022 | Rende, CS, Italy

Training for youth workers, coaches, mentors and people who work with young people. It combines personal and professional development and supports participants to bring coaching techniques for youth work.

In the context of work aimed at young people, coaching or the process of developing the skills, resources and skills of a person managed by a qualified professional (coach) is taking on great importance, through the identification of areas of potential growth and the definition of a program aimed at achieving personal or professional goals, a figure who therefore stimulates and follows carefully the work and objectives of young people step by step.

The coaching and mentoring of a trainer and facilitator is able to stimulate, in its interlocutors, all the motivations for proceeding to achieve the objectives; to identify the best solutions in the shortest time; to identify the talent and needs of the other. It should be noted that not all youth workers have the skills and abilities to start this motivational and maieutic process among the young people they follow.

With this TC, the partner group wants to carry out the training course to create an opportunity for the Youth Workers (YP) of the reference communities by offering them an opportunity for an international comparison with European colleagues.
