Most of us have noticed how difficult it is to learn when the subject is boring or the teaching methods are way too formal. But have you ever noticed how much easier it is to learn when you are having fun at the same time? At Youth Europa, we have figured out how to immerse people in an experience that they will never forget. “The Hunt” is a training course in which we will learn how to use the treasure hunt method for learning and teambuilding. The basic idea of this method is very simple – groups of participants follow a storyline, interact with various characters and work together to complete challenges. This, however, involves quite a bit of planning, creativity, risk management and so on. All of these topics and much more will be covered as we embark on a journey to create the most memorable learning experiences for young people.
Who should participate in such a training course? Well, we are welcoming everyone who is already involved in the youth field or wants to get closer to youth work in general. That doesn’t mean that you need to be working at a youth center, but we do expect you to be motivated to carry out new projects and workshops in Youth Europa or other organisations, at a school, youth center or pretty much anywhere else. No matter what kind of background you have, you are welcome in this training course to learn about ways you can bring people together and facilitate activities that have an impact on future generations.
32 participants from Estonia, Spain, Slovakia and Greece will come together to participate in 8 action-packed activity days. It’s an ideal opportunity for you to learn something new, network with likeminded people and create materials together that can be used by youth workers across the world.
