Project introduction

The Practicing Coaching and Mentoring is a 7 days international course designed for youth workers, youth, leaders, mentors, coaches, and trainers with the aim of facilitating personal and professional growth. Note that the training is an open-call event, it’s not founded by Erasmus+! The program of this training is composed with the emphasis on experiential learning and is available to the people who are active in the youth work sector. Feeling comfortable in the role of a coach and mentor comes to some people more easily than the others, but it is, in its core, a talent that can be developed and practiced. The build-up of the training takes individual differences of the participants into account and offers a variety of activities, exercises, techniques, tools, theoretical framework and practical advices in the field of realizing their own projects successfully, through adapting coaching styles and strategies. THE PRACTICE: The Practicing Coaching and Mentoring training offers a unique learning approach that reaches out to the participants through a wide range of coaching methods that incorporate learning by doing or learning by experiencing. The training opens a door to new approaches and methods of coaching and mentoring, as they are available at the moment and manifests itself through intense practicing, using real life examples, introduction and reflection videos, as well as live demonstrations.
