From 09.12.2022 till 16.12.2022 we took part of a training course called “ The Wellbeing of Youth Workers” which took place in Garlstedt, Osterholz-Scharmbeck, Germany.
The training course was focused on how Youth workers can take care of themselves and not reach the point of burn out.
We had 3 trainers there, which was nice, as each one of them had a different style of conducting and leading the workshops.
Being almost in the middle of a forest made the atmosphere nice and we could escape the big cities noise and stress.
We were 8 countries, with different ages starting from 20 till 50 which gave the TC a bit salt to the soup.
We had workshops related to many topics (time management, goals settings, light Yoga, self-awareness, etc.) all those were efficient and remarkable for youth workers.
All our eating habits were taking into consideration while preparing for us the meals of the day, not to forget to mention that this is program is funded by Erasmus+ where transportation to and from the project is free as well as accommodation and food.
During the TC we have learned also about more opportunities that Erasmus+ offer. This time I have learned about Erasmus for young Entrepreneurs, also we extended our networks through out sharing our contacts with other people representing other NGOs through Europe.
One remarkable workshop was (Crisis management) where we had different scenarios of some problems that might happen and some that already happened and how and what we would do to prevent them from happening during Erasmus+ projects.
At the end of TC we left with full of thoughts and loaded with motivation to come back and implement what we have learned. Can’t wait to go for my next TC to enhance and feed my learning Hunger 😊
