From March 27 to April 4 of this year, the first Training Course in the framework of “The power of self reflection” project took place in Dilijan, in which young people from 6 countries participated: Armenia, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Georgia and Portugal.

The project The Power of Self Reflection aims to improve the competencies of youth leaders and youth workers in Mindfulness, Embodiment and Coaching methods as non-formal education methods to increase mental health and wellbeing, but also social dialogue and a sense of belonging among youth.

Mindfulness and Embodiment are two strong pathways towards greater self-awareness, inner peace and a sense of belonging. Both include a wide variety of methods and tools, which can be applied in youth work and non-formal education. Moreover, these tools can be applied in community-building processes and social dialogue among youth.

Coaching is a relatively new element in supporting youth work. These training courses have been developed with the aim of offering practical support for youth leaders and youth workers that are actively supporting different Youth Initiatives in their communities.

The Project as a whole aims to empower youth leaders and youth worker’s personal development and Leadership capacity by fostering their skills for self-reflection and self-awareness, by using mindfulness and embodiment as pathways.

The second training course will be held in Summer in Košice, Slovakia.
