Training course just came to an end!

One of the most important project’s activity – training course just came to an end.

Training course took place between 9thand 16thof March 2018 in Głuchołazy (Poland). In this activity took part 21 youth leaders from different NGO’s and institutions from partner countries: Bulgaria, Cyprus and Poland.

The purpose of the training was to familiarize its participants with non-formal education methods about health. First days were dedicated to principles and features of non-formal education. After these days, it was time for training in health modules. Those lessons are the innovative method learning about health, developed on cooperation of 3 partner organizations at the international level.

Upon completion of the training, the organizations participating in the training have received the NEC (Non formal Education Center)certificate, which means that they have learnt about non-formal education methods and they know how to use modules. As they gained NEC status, participants are obligated to implement at least 1 module among the young people with whom it works and to complete the survey before and after the workshops.

The questionnaire will be used in the study of the knowledge of the concept of non-formal education and the validity and usability of modules.

Our third international meeting came to an end

Our third international meeting came to an end. We have spent 5 amazing days together in Larnaca on Cyprus. This time, the organizer of the meeting was Social Policy and Action Organization. Thanks to that we have moved on with modules in our project: “Start now!: Strategic partnership for health promotion among youth”. 

The main meeting was held between 20.10 and 24.10 of 2017. During those days we have focused on improving our work on the innovative non formal education method in the frame of health education. Moreover we have finished introduction for publication and we have presented 2nd chapter – about non-formal education in general. We also talked about project promotion and preparing training course in Poland, which will be held in March 2018.

We have spent lovely informal time in Larnaca. We had a great possibility to feel and fall in love in Cypriot culture and cuisine. We have gathered together in Greek tavern, where we have tasted “meze”- a selection of many different regional dishes such as: greek salad, sheftalia, souvlaki, pita and many others. Everything with accompany of traditional live music. We also have a possibility to visit Nicosia – headquarter city of SPAO and little sightseeing this big city with cozy streets and lovely Greek homes.
