we are looking for three participants from LITHUANIA for the following TRAINING COURSE:
“Involved Youth for Better Future” on 20/08/2012 – 29/08/2012, Struga, Macedonia .
Introduction
The proposed project address the social and economic imbalances associated with minority communities which have led to the development of disabled youth, where diversity is also accompanied by poverty and often with marginalization.

Developing opportunities for social excluded youth to participate in their communities certainly represents a challenge. These changes require organisations and youth workers to do the things in different ways.

This project aims to develop youth workers and leaders inclusively work skills, teaching them for the most attractive activities which are used in the field of social inclusion and active citizenship, such as street animation and campaigns methods.

Objectives:

  • To explore different ways to fight against social exclusion and to discuss the opportunities     it can be promoted and fostered;
  • To stimulate young marginalized people`s participation in local communities
  • To facilitate the development of inclusively youth work and contribute to a inclusive         society
  • To familiarize participants’ with the YiA approaches to social exclusion and active citizenship principles

Methodology
Participants will be taught how to use attractive methods in order to secure participation of the marginalized young people in youth projects. Street animation and campaigns methods such as street theatre, street art, flash mob, clowning, jogging, face painting, parades, protests etc. are one of the appropriate and efficient methods which can reach any groups in the local community and make changes.
