For the 1st training module – Peer training against discrimination and
extremism (according to EPTO certification standards “Thematic
Awareness Training”- TAT): 19.03.2018 – 26.03.2018 in Arad, Romania
Arrival Day 19th of March
Departure Day 26th of March
Оur objectives are the following:
1. To equip 20 youth workers through 2 x 6-day training activities to raise
awareness about the complexity of diversity and to tackle discrimination,
exclusion and extremism;
2. To provide youth workers with competences (knowledge, skills and attitudes)
and a certification to facilitate discussions and lead workshops about antidiscrimination
with their peers;
3. To prevent various forms of extremism among young people through the
projects initiated by the peer trainers after their trainings;
4. To promote the powerful impact of youth-led peer education projects on the
integration of vulnerable groups.
During and after the project, participants will implement anti-discrimination
workshops in their communities, making them more welcoming for the people
with a religious or non-religious background and more open to a multi-cultural
experience. Moreover, given that peer education is powerful in the sense that it
has a strong long-term multiplier effect, a broader impact is expected through
this network of “catalysts”, the trained peer educators who will act as multipliers
that are able to inspire other people in their local contexts afterwards. In this
context, it is important to mention that the participants in this 2-part training
will develop the capacities to also train other peer educators. The members of
this newly created network will become the main multipliers of the project at
local level. Partners are expected to disseminate the results of their work and to
cooperate in creating a new training programme that will engage even more
Our long term aim is to create a huge snowball effect through participants,
partner organisations and their respective spheres of influence (target groups,
stakeholders, other partners, etc.) in different regions / countries, covering
various topics, namely diversity and anti-discrimination, islamophobia, peer
education and non-formal education.
Participants who commit to this training will have to complete 6 hours of
practice (facilitation of activities with their peers) and to fill in a “self-assessment
form” between the first and second training module. This form will help them to
reflect on the current state of their competences as peer trainers and will be used
during the second training module as a basis to assess and improve those
competences. Also, the participants in the second training module would need to
present a draft idea of their future action plan and to demonstrate their capacity
to take action afterwards.
The 1st training module will focus on discovering and experiencing new
powerful tools to raise awareness of the uniqueness and complexity of each
individual’s religion and belief identity; to facilitate dialogue and sharing of
experiences in the area of religion and culture; to confront all forms of
discrimination and extremism.
We want to provide participants with different activities to understand religionbased
discrimination (on 4 levels: individual, interpersonal, institutional,
ideological) and extreme ideologies (roots of radical Jihadism, scapegoating
processes of current right-wing movements, historical and contemporary forms
of Antisemitism and Islamophobia, etc.).
They will be introduced to strategies to confront speeches and acts of this kind in
their personal and professional environments.
Then we want them to initiate reflections about how to tackle the multifaceted
issue of extremism among young people through peer education: we will use
peer training (which is one form of peer education) to start a cascade effect of
social change. Knowing that a message delivered by youth to their peers is often
more credible and efficient than when it is delivered by authority figures, we will
give participants opportunities to become role-models for their peers by helping
them to become critical, creative, free, active and responsible members of
society. We planned to allow a few months to the participants between the 2
activities to integrate all the concepts and ideas into their daily routine and then,
to start practicing their facilitation skills around those issues in their local
environment in order to come back with a more structured idea for social action.
The 2nd training module focuses on giving youth workers competences and a
certification to facilitate activities and workshops for their peers. EPTO’s
certification process and competence framework is built upon 6 milestones with
associated competences. It will be of course presented during the training, with
the aim to offer a transparent frame for peer trainers to progressively assess,
develop, validate and utilize their competences through training and practice. It
helps each peer trainer to have a sense of progression and achievement, and
encourages them to take action with their peers.
In terms of learning outcomes, this activity will enable peer trainers to go deeper
in the field of diversity education and develop leadership skills to better tackle
discrimination, specifically adding expertise on extremism. It will increase their
capacity to facilitate action planning with diverse groups on various issues
related to prejudice and exclusion. This training will emphasize the importance
of taking action and provide activities and facilitation techniques to support
trainers and participants in problem/solution/context identification and
