The program will include 2 residential training courses, one for basic competencies in HRE which will be followed by a practice phase in each community (where the multipliers will have to develop and implement human rights education for young people). After the practice phase the second training will take place (for same group of people) this time to assess and evaluate the practice phase and for development of advance competencies in HRE. After the second training a second practice phase will take place for the human educators to put in practice their advance competencies.
