LTTC “COACHING FOR CHANGE Revision” aims at building competences for youth empowerment through coaching techniques in order to address all the mentioned issues and to build a stable and productive co-working platform for educators. We see coaching as an essential youth worker’s skill, as you will be able to use your competences in many youth work areas such as learning for success, employability and entrepreneurship, inspirational leadership, as well as in building soft skills such as efficient communication, self-esteem and networking. We’d like to carry out this project as the revision of TC Coaching for Change (January 29 – February 6, 2016, Yerevan Armenia) as it was very successful and we realized the great need and interest in this topic (we received more than 300 applications) among young people.
This LTTC will consist of 2 stages: First 7+2-days TC will take place in Armenia in 28 October – 05 November 2017, and will focus on mastering the skills in coaching, reflection on the practical phase and experimenting with different models, instruments and tools.
The second TC will take place in Russia in 19 – 27 May 2018, and will aim at getting the participants acquainted with principles of coaching. After that TC we expect them to try coaching in their local work, and to share the results with us and peer learners during the on-line phase.
