Communication for Youth – training course

„There are many different training programs about communication like DISC, Insights Discovery, NLP and so on… But they are almost always designed for adults. We believe these programs could be very valuable for youth. So we decided we want to design a program specifically for youth about communication. And we want to do this in international cooperation with you! The desired outcome of this program is a ready to use, tested, 1-day communication workshop for youth groups including trainer manual, participant workbook, materials, feedback forms etc.

There is a 7 day training course in June, a pilot period to test the workshop and a 3 day evaluation  meeting in October.

For whom?

People that work with youth in an experiential learning context. Some knowledge of communication theories  is an advantage. We are waiting for participants from Poland, Sweden, The Netherlands and Bulgaria.

Team of trainers:

Aga Leśny (Poland), Igor Lisin (Poland), Floor Vullings (The Netherlands), Nikolay „Nick” Kuznetsov (Russian Federation) + guest trainers: Ammy Kuiper (The Netherlands), Jurjen Knoester (The Netherlands)

June 25th – July 1st (travel days not included)

In a training/group venue in the Netherlands.

  • 26-28 October (travel days not included)

In the Netherlands.

  • Participation is free, travel costs are reimbursed to Erasmus+ standards. However we expect participants to actively participate in all three parts of the program (Trainig, pilot testing period and evaluation meeting)”

Buitendoor invites for tree house building!

Homeless this summer? And feeling like leaving the lazy chair for a new experience? It’s hard working for the house of your dreams, because we have to: dragging, sawing, climbing, knots and nailing… But after all, nothing is better then waking up in a self made treehouse.

We start in the woods of the Veluwe with a stack of wood, ropes and climbing materials. Everyday our house will grow up to 13 meters so that you can sleep, cook, take a shower and in the end chill in it. Who knows, maybe we will build a sauna on this height. Because after a week of building with a group, we will enjoy our creation for a few days.

Our goal is to meet new people, create a new home in the trees, experience/ learn/co-operate, challenges and most important of all, having an unforgetable summer.
