CHLaYdoscope project announced that the Training Package for Youth Community Leaders is now available to everyone!

Developed by Warehouse in collaboration with the project partnership, it is a comprehensive resource developed to equip Youth Community Leaders with the necessary skills and knowledge to drive innovation and positive change within their communities. Initially designed by creative hub leaders for project-specific activities, it is suggested as a model for fostering innovation in policies, project management and community development.

CHLaYdoscope Project aim is to support the development of Community-based youth leadership (YCLs) through an innovative mentorship and non-formal education program, designed and delivered by European Creative Hub Leaders (ECHLs), based on their experience in finding solutions to complex societal problems through co-creation, bottom-up and community-focused approaches.

A bit more details:

The participatory methodologies and tools suggested in the Training Package are grounded in Design Thinking and other design approaches developed by the European Creative Hubs Leaders with their communities and tested with the community of project participants during the second year of the CHLaYdoscope, in the occasion of:

Six online workshops held with the youth beneficiaries of the project.
One intensive Training of Trainers Week, which took place in Slovenia, with the participation of 12 trainers from CHLaYdoscope Partner Organisations.
One intensive International Youths Academy Week, which took place in Portugal, with the participation of 18 prospective youth community leaders selected among a wider group of participants.
6 CHLaYdoscope Local Labs held in 5 countries by the project participants.

The contents were then revised for the final version, embracing the feedback provided by the participants after each training session.
