Training for Youth Workers Working with Young People with Physical Disabilities

Short description of the project: The 9 day training course was organised for youth workers and trainers with outdoor experience from the following countries: Romania, Hungary, Germany, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Belgium, Portugal, and took place in Sovata, Romania, between July 01-10, 2010. The purpose of the training was to learn specific and professional training methods and to develop the proper skills in order to be able to work with young people with physical and mental disabilities. Because of their disabilities, these people are often socially excluded. Through our course we trained and specialised a number of 24 youth workers who became able to deal with the specific problems of this target group.
By gaining the proper skills and knowledge, the participating trainers and youth workers became able to raise awareness about the impediments met by people with physical/mental disabilities in social life. They will help them in the future to become self-confident and to involve themselves in the society as active citizens with equal rights.
This training empowers the participating youth workers, who already have outdoor experience, to organise themselves trainings and different activities, exchanges, personality development measures for people with physical/mental disabilities.
