Developing and adapting non-formal education methods to the needs of young refugees

The project is a six day training course taking place in a small city of Trofaiach in Austria between 11 and 17th of December 2017.

The project is built on our experiences working with unaccompanied minor refugees (UMR) and the outcomes of the training course “Non-formal education in the integration of UMR”. The project is based on sharing experience and good practices as well as developing, adapting, practicing and reflecting on workshops that would meet the needs of young refugees. During the training course youth workers will be working closely together with a group of naccompanied minor refugees when developing the toolkit in order to tailor it to the needs of young refugees (target group).
