    How it will be done? 
    In order to have real impacts, the participants experience an innovative approach, using a full immersion in the experiential learning cycle: doing/ feeling, reflecting, transferring...

    To have profound impact, we need to go further than classical running of training courses. The  participants are encouraged to really build their own training and learning process, supported by a fine tuned pedagogical programme. We consider that this is the condition to understand the real power of NFE.

    The Pedagogical Process
    A fundamental flow during the training is based upon:

    - Experiencing: different educational settings, different non formal education methods (role play, simulation    game, exercise...)
    - Reflecting: on the methods and its impacts, on the power and limits of NFE, on building a pedagogical    process...
    - Transferring: to the own reality of participants, in order to improve ways of working with young  people
    - Sharing: different perceptions, current situations and experiences.
    - Developing: the building capacity of the participants, by including them in the decision process of the project    designing (participants will decide some sessions they feel they need to have) but also in the implementation    of the program (‘Power to the People’ moments).

    The program lasts for four five days, with a preparation phase of the participants, and a mentoring phase after the course.

    Venue, Accommodation
    Training course will be held in Riga, the capital city of Latvia. During the program participants will be hosted in a hotel "Rodisson Blu". https://www.radissonblu.com/en/latvijahotel-riga
