YOUth- Wind of Change was a training course under the action 3.1 which was implemented on May this year. The training brought together 30 participants from 10 countries. The main theme of project was empowering leadership from different minority groups. There were different factors which determine the participation of youngsters from minorities in community life. Being part of a minority group such as: a young person from a Roma community, a disabled person, a young person belonging to migrant family, a young person from LGBT community etc. in many cases lead to isolation whether social, cultural or educational.
Within this project we enriched participants with tools to develop their leadership skills in order to motivate them in becoming active local and European citizens. By developing concrete leadership skills for participants (intercultural communication and public speaking, team building, facilitation, conflict management) we contributed in promotion of equal opportunities and empowerment of minority youth. Intercultural education motivated participants to share their knowledge, information and experience in order to act as multipliers on civil society field after the TC .
The new youth programme 2014-2020 Erasmus+ and other European programmes were promoted as a tool for inclusion and empowerment of minority youth. Through this TC we increased participants sense of entrepreneurship. Non Formal Education was the methodology of the training course consideration its holistic approach of knowledge, skills and attitudes.
