Changemakers Academy – where Global Citizenship inspires action and leaders are made!

How to encourage young people to become responsible global citizens? How to infuse YFU orientations with the Global Citizenship component and work with the LOOP?

This Training Course will provide necessary tools and answers!

Moreover, not only does this Training Course address needs for stronger volunteer leadership, it will prepare YFUers to become Changemakers, through being leaders in the Global Citizenship Campaign, and leaders in the upcoming Six Regional Orientations Training Courses!

Changemakers Academy will take place from 5 until 12 May 2017 and will gather together 30 participants from 17 countries, key active volunteers interested in increasing their leadership skills, gaining global citizenship competence and developing training and campaigning skills.

The main aim of Changemakers Academy is to train new leaders in global citizenship education who will be able to either run a Global Citizenship Campaign or organise cross-border trainings for YFU Orientation Leaders. The training course will be organised in a way which combines the joint theme sessions (Leadership, Global Citizenship) and 2 simultaneous learning tracks: Educational and Campaigning.

Invited experts will share their knowledge on Global Citizenship and Campaigning – new topics for YFU to work with.

The Call for Trainers Changemakers Academy is open until January 9. You can find the call in the Word format here.

This training is made possible thanks to the funding of the European Youth Foundation of the Council of Europe
