9 sessions for training
The main aim of these 9 sessions
is to enable young people, workers or coaches to set
up a peer group education project focused on issues
concerning racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and intolerance
and to explore ways of integrating activities into
their own youth work.
We have made no reference: getting
to know each other exercises, warming up activities,
mid-way evaluation etc. This should be left to the
trainer who is designing the programme or course.
What you will find in this section are 9 sessions
with ideas and guide-lines which you can use in the
planning of a training course for coaches who are
interested in peer group education and the topics
of the 'all different - all equal' campaign.
All models and training sessions
carry with them certain limitations. It is not possible,
for example, to know the skills of the trainer, the
atmosphere in the group, the knowledge level concerning
racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and intolerance
or the place where the training will take place. The
training can take place in residential workshops lasting
6 days, during evening sessions held over several
weeks or months. Most of the exercises can be used
for groups of 15 - 35 persons. We suggest that you
read the different sessions, draw from the activities
and plan the training in a way which is suitable for
your situation or group.
