Coloured Glasses -CGRO training course
On the 24th till the 30th of May 2017, the School Ambassadors and Regional Coordinators invloved in project Coloured Glasses - CGrow met in Brussels -De Waterman for the training held by YEU International as member of the Consortium. Participants came from France, Austria, Germany, Estonia, Sweden, Bulgaria and Italia: all the countries where the project CGrow is implemented.
This Training aimed in preparing them on how to become operational and effective in their respective roles. Regional Coordinators are in charge of building the volunteers’ networks in their regions and ensuring they are trained to deliver Coloured Glasses Workshops, while building visibility for Coloured Glasses in the communities. At the same time, due to the training, Regional Coordinators and School Ambassadors became more familiar with the project and its key steps, got to know each other and to define ways of cooperation, both in national and international level. Participants also got the chance to learn about effective communication in youth work, to explor the topic of volunteer management, work on their plans for development of Coloured Glasses in their regions and additionally to try out the Coloured Glasses manual.
As the purpose is to have a strong team, the training was also the place where they developed and build on connections and synergies for future work together, across borders. Many questions came up and offer opportunity for clarification, discussion, and decision-making.
Regional Coordinators are in charge of building the volunteers’ networks in their regions and ensuring they are trained to deliver Coloured Glasses Workshops, while building visibility for Coloured Glasses in the communities. School Ambassadors are young students who take care of networking with schools and peer-to-peer support.
The project CGrow (“Coloured Glasses Expanding Intercultural Education”) aims to develop Coloured Glasses workshops in 7 new regions across Europe (in Sweden, Estonia, Bulgaria, Austria, Italy, France, and Germany). It is a two-year project, funded through the Erasmus+ programme.
