Project description:

Young people are eager to make a career and for that they are willing to make many concessions. They give up their free time more easily, they accept to be accessible to employers at any time, they don’t know their own limits, they don’t know how to have patience with themselves and say “no” sometimes. The effects are very serious: overwork, consumption of harmful foods, drugs or alcohol, anxiety, depression.

On the other hand, despite its harmful nature, burnout is a gradual process, so it can be prevented. Non-formal education represents a chance offered to young people to understand what burnout means and to try to prevent it, with the help of youth workers who, however, need skills in this field.

The main objective consists in the development of the key competencies and skills of 35 youth workers, through a training course carried out with the means of non-formal education, in the field of burnout prevention, in order to increase the quality of youth work and ensure, for young people, a state of mental and physical well-being. The competences of youth workers will be recognized by certifications.

The methods are specific to non-formal education and develop creativity and involvement: knowledge and trust exercises; reflection exercises, PP presentations; open space, round table, group workshops, cafe learning; forum theatre, role playing, simulation; watching short films.
