Step Out - Step Up is a training course that aimed to support the professional development of young leaders/trainers and to raise the quality of their projects concerning outdoor activities with learning methodologies. We approached the idea of leadership and outdoors activities on different levels: group dynamics, learning outcomes and intercultural context.
The training course used methods of experiential learning as role plays, simulations and hiking methods and group sharing methods as small and large group discussions. All over mission of the training course was to find the ways how to make the issue of outdoor activities attractive and uselful to the youth. Step Out - Step Up was designed to take place in Viljandi Suure-Jaani County in Estonia having the length of 8 days with participation of 32 youth leaders from Estonia, Ukraine, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Romania, Italy, Spain, Georgia, Armenia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Serbia, Austria and Moldova.
The training course was designed to empower youth workers to develop their competences on the Learning Process and importance when used in outdoor activities and its methods and then to make it relevant for young people. The activities were designed to fulfill those needs.
