This course is being implemented in the framework of the STAR project – Stand Together Against Racism, which is a 3-year collaboration among 4 partners from Spain, Italy, Bulgaria, and Poland, with the aim to counter invisible racism and other forms of intolerance in the everyday lives of young people, including hate speech, through preventive measures, youth work, and non-formal education. Within 2 years of the project, the partner organisations worked with young people on the local level testing and up scaling approaches and tools, and in the last year of the project, we aim to share them with youth work practitioners by implementing this international training course, developing the manual and the MOOC – Massive Open Online Course.

With this training, we aim to develop participants’ competences in using and adapting tools and approaches developed within STAR project and to enable participants to run the anti-racism activities with their young people.

Objectives: To build comprehensive understanding of invisible racism and how it needs to be tackled in the overall framework of anti-racism work To empower youth workers to run anti-racism activities with young people.

To explore main topics connected with anti-racism work – hate speech, microaggressions, power relations, prejudices and stereotypes, emotional awareness and good treatment .

To discover approaches that can be helpful in the work with young people – community work, peer education, mainstreaming anti-racism and empowering and engaging minorities To encourage co-operation and develop common anti-racism actions

The course is directed at youth workers, trainers, teachers and other professionals working with young people, interested in doing anti-racism education.
