Training Course

30 November – 6 December 2017 | Eskisehir, Turkey

This Training Course is for 30 participants from Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Estonia, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Greece, Italy, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Turkey.

Discuss, strengthen & develop “the model” for a sustainable youth NGO by focusing on topics such as organizational identity, organizational structure, project&activity planning, source management and sustainability.

The Idea:

This projects outline was created after a research and observation on today’s youth NGOs. We had many chances to discuss about the problems of civil society works with people who are active youth workers (managers, members, leaders, volunteers) in several platforms. One of the most common problem that we face is difficulties of achieving intended impacts and acting sustainable.

The conclusion was: lack of organizational planning & management & development skills in the youth organizations and NGOs. This problem creates a huge barrier between NGO and it’s stakeholders in terms of efficiency. For that reason we’ve chosen to focus mainly on “effective NGO and organizational identity”, “organizational structure”, “activity planning”, “sustainability” and to the other related skills that we believe the milestones of organizational management & development.

Apart from the activities such as communication, group building, youth-pass related; each of these subjects will go on with the approach of experiential learning tools and methods such as case studies, simulations, working groups, brainstormings and presentations.
