They will learn about Motivational Talk, Cognitive Skills, Ethics and Moral, Angst Management, 12 Steps Programme, Cards Methodology and other methods and tools of work with youth at risk. The study Visit will stimulate people's motivation to work with such youth through theoretical input from experts and participants. After the Study Visit the participants will be responsible to transfer their knowledge to people involved in work with youth at risk. It will be based mainly on Non Formal Learning Methodology. Active participation, group-work and teamwork, as well as theoretical inputs will characterize the programme of the Study Visit.
