Nowadays, one of the biggest needs of youth workers is to be able to stay optimistic and willing to create a better society. Youth workers, as pioneers in the youth field, face many challenges to be successful to make a positive influence on young people. In this course youth workers will be able to raise their capacity by experiencing life skill tools related with emotional intelligence, wellbeing, stress management, group dynamics and active participation, which they can apply in their daily work with young people. This will help youth workers to gain insights on how to bring a dynamic change in young people’s lives. Participants will get a chance to reflect on themselves and start to explore their full potentials. This experience will allow them to support young people to discover their own strengths.
