United Societies of Balkans organize the first training course on Human Rights for youth workers, working for organizations that are actively involved with the "European Voluntary Service" programme in Greece. The training course will be realized between 4th and 6th of October, 2013 in Thessaloniki, in the framework of the European Programme “Civic Help for Anti-Racism Measures in youth work ΙΙ” (CHARM II).
Its main aim is to educate the representatives of youth organisations, actively involved with EVS hosting, sending and coordinating activities, on figthing against racism and defending Human Rights in their everyday worklife. NGO representatives come in contact quite often with young people from different cultural backgrounds and so their training on the topics above is essential for the proper function of their organisations but also of the EVS programme in general. The training methodology will follow the techniques of non formal education.
It is important to note here that the training course follows research, conducted by U.S.B., about the current status of youth EVS organizations, concerning the respect towards Human Rights and diversity.
In Greece, they will take place in total 3 training courses, two of which will be coordinated by Greek trainers while the last one both by Greek and foreigner trainers. At the same time, the following six months, 12 seminars will be realized in the six countries, participating in CHARM II project; Bulgaria, Italy, Spain, Lithuania, Poland and Greece.
The programme has been funded by European Union and specifically by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights.
