CC - Challenges in Communication
Start date: Mar 1, 2015,

A good ability to communicate is nowadays crucial in every sphere of our life: to have healthy personal relations, to work efficiently
with young people, to be successful in our studies, to access new job positions, to exercise social leadership or to transfer our ideas
into bigger groups and audiences.
This becomes specially relevant when working as youth workers and/or young leaders with youth and groups of youngsters:
communication becomes a crucial aspect in each stage of the activities and it clearly influences the dynamics and motivation of the
groups and the individuals. Different elements configure this crucial competence of a youth worker/leader: to do it precise,
empathic, nonviolent, in a supportive manner, involving and adapted to the audience, the context and the different styles of learner.
In this sense, the overall aim of the Training Course is to increase youth workers’ capacities to communicate and to transfer
messages in their work with youngsters, as well as to reflect and increase the self-awareness of each individual’s communication
style, specially in the youth work areas.
More precisely, the objectives of the Training Course are:
• To explore and understand different techniques of communication, with special focus in youth work;
• To provide a safe space to practice and develop personal competences in speaking in front of youth groups;
• To practice different types of communication with youngsters -one to one, with groups, during team meetings, in coaching, on
• To integrate the logics of nonviolent and supportive communication as a transversal element and apply it;
• To develop projects addressing communication issues in organizations and communities.
