Mindful Youth Work will organized by Prisms together with Toros University in Mersin, Turkey between the 8 - 15 October 2014 . It will be hosting 27 participants coming from Malta, Turkey, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Romania, Italy, Ukraine and Greece. The project, Mindful Youth Work, is aimed to increase the evaluative and reflective capabilities of youth work with particular reference to the youthpass methodolgy. The idea evolved after doing a number of trainings and observing that the element of self directed learning and self evaluation were not given the attention required. This training course will base its programme on Deming’s (Plan, Do, Check and Act) Reflective model. The participants will learn how to reflect on past experiences and derive learning aspects to improve their quality of service they give to young people. The project will also focus on learning to learn. Being youth workers / leaders sometimes we stopped to reflect on our own learning because we are all the time focused on the learning of others. This training course will give time and space for the participants to really get in touch with whom they are as youth workers and also map where is it they need to go in their profession. The main concept is for the applicants/ partner countries (youth workers) to become better equipped at evaluating their own work at the end of the projects as well as setting a number of checkpoints along the way that will provide them with necessary data to check on their current project success/status and learn.
