SOURCE Seminar & Conference
Be inspired and recharged by best practices in working with youth with fewer opportunities! Bring and inspire others with yours too! Facilitation via: experiential education, solution focus coaching, supervision, intervision & best practice exchange.
SOURCE Seminar and International Conference aims to increase the competences of youth workers and social workers in the community centres in using non-formal education methods, particularly experiential learning methods, to be able to create space and environment supporting personal development and empowerment of youth with fewer opportunity in the V4 region. We’ll learn from each other’s good practices, transfer and adopt methodology from abroad, which is innovative in the context of youth work, in the partnership and in general.
The event fills the gap of having meaningful conversations and experience sharing amongst helping experts living in the Visegrad region facing similar challenges while working with similar target groups – youth with fewer opportunities.

MORE about SOURCE
The need of SOURCE is to increase the competences of youth and social workers in the community centres in using non-formal education methods, particularly experiential learning methods, to be able to create space and environment supporting personal development and empowerment of youth with fewer opportunities in the V4 region. There is a wish to learn from each other’s good practices, transfer and adopt methodology from abroad, which is innovative in the context of youth work, in the partnership and in general.
The need of youth at risk in the communities that the project partners are working with, is to develop their competences that will enable them to communicate better with each other, to better perform in education and to be able to enter the labour market in the future. All this requires to increase the social competences, communication skills, self-confidence and self-appreciation of the youth.
One of the specific objectives of SOURCE is to increase personal capacities of involved organizations in non-formal education methods. The activities to achieve this objective are: organising the SOURCE seminar, space for debates on challenges and we introduce self-supportive tools for communities of helping workers (solution focus coaching and intervision); organising the SOURCE conference, with workshops on exchange of non-formal education methods and best practices in V4 region.
An other specific objective of SOURCE is to increase the quality of youth work the involved organisations provide, particularly by adopting a new learning programme for youth at risk using volunteering action as a tool. The activity to achieve this objective is to create a methodology pack (summary of used tools, methods and lessons learned).
