Student Volunteer Leaders Training: Transforming society
Start date: Jun 26, 2015, End date: Jun 25, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Student Volunteer Leaders Training: Transforming society- brought together 50 leaders of grass roots student groups, aged 18 - 26 from all across Europe. This seven day residential Training and Networking Activity equipped European student leaders in how to transform the lives of others and thus transform society. Participants came from student groups in seven major cities across Poland, Belgium, Ireland, Northern Ireland, England and Scotland. The project was hosted by UCO-Belfast in August 2015. The objectives of the activity were: 1. INTEGRITY- Raise the moral responsibility of the groups, teaching them both theory and practice of ethical, generous behaviour; not only living a rule of law but living a life of integrity based on human dignity. 2. CONTRIBUTION - Run an event that has a transformative effect on individuals inspiring them to make a personal contribution in society and in turn drawing others into similar contribution. 3. LEADERSHIP -Develop general leadership skills in attendees: how to build and lead a group, communication, management, speaking and presenting. 4. COLLABORATION - Shape a collaborative networking environment for young European leaders to mix and learn together The project was led by an international team of young people who planned, implemented and evaluated the activity. UCO Belfast led this team, with strong involvement from Polish, German, Belgian, Irish & U.K. team members.
