Training of trainers for youth workers on tackling hate speech

NYCI is currently selecting a team of five trainees to take part in this very exciting transnational project.

Are you a youth leader aged under 35 from a minority group*? 

Would you like to upskill and become a national trainer on tackling and transforming hate speech and prejudice that occurs within youth work settings?

Can you, and your organisation, commit to 25 days over the next 20 months?

Deadline for expressions of interest is July 7th. Selection interviews will take place from the 14th July.

The training course is organised with the support of the Erasmus + programme and all activities are free of charge for participants (including travel, accommodation and food costs of the international trainings**). The training venues are accessible and everything possible is done to enable participation of people with any kind of special needs.

The Intercultural and Equality Programme delivers a range of trainings

All of these courses are available on request country wide
Our courses cover issues on equality, diversity and interculturalism. They are designed to support youth workers to bring a more equal and inclusive focus to their youth work. They are developed to be practical, challenging and to help youth workers overcome any fears or barriers that may be present. 
The training workshops target volunteers or staff of youth work organisations and others that work with young people in out of school settings.
