PROJECT TEAM

Lauma Ziemeļniece (project trainer): “The project title Inception means a creation or a beginning. I believe everyone has a chance to start a new phase of life. Within Inception we learn about our own strength and how to support others in creating the beginning. Inception changes perception of own reality using coaching conversation and constellation by seeing ourselves as a part of family. ”

Andrej Korpar (project trainer): “Passionate about encouraging youth for taking their active role in leadership and passionate about coaching.  The project will pull many questions out of us. Many of those we have never thought about. And this will give us the right tools to help other people and enlight their hidden potential.”

Kristīne Kode (project coordinator): “I  come  from the heart  of Latvia,  from  local community  where  human being  has close relation  with  Mother Nature.  Being  proud about  community  I  come  from and where  I  belong to.  It  will be  great  honor to  share  our stories,  our  experiences, our  values  -identity, initiative,  cooperation,  good governance,  justice. Pleased to  meet  you in  Latvia  in our  local  community in  June 2018.”

Marcela Velfl (project facilitator): “For me dancing is the centre of my being – everything is created out of movement. I believe that’s where all the new learning starts. Project Inception is also a centre, a centre where different people gather, explore different movements, and create a foundation for something new, a new beginning for ourselves, family, friends, colleagues, youngsters and community.”

 

 

Background of the project:

Inception3 is  a  successive project  of  the Inception  confirmed  by Latvian  National  Agency (2016) and Inception  2.0  confirmed by  Slovenian  National Agency  (2017).  Within this  project  we tackle  an  issue that  in  2016, more  than  6,3 million  young  people (aged  15-24 years)  were neither  in  employment nor  in  education or  training  (NEETs) in  the  European Union.

Inception3 is dedicated to youth workers and leaders, teachers dealing with NEET youngsters from mix cultural backgrounds, including  working  with refugees, asylum  seekers  and migrants.

Objectives:

–       to  raise awareness  of  marginalized youth,  especially  NEET’s among  youth  workers ;
–       to build capacity of youth  workers, youth  leaders  and educators  using  coaching and  constellation  as methods  to work  with marginalized  youth  especially NEET  youngsters   with mix  cultural  background;
–       to increase  local communities openess  and tolerance  towards  diverse cultures.

 

Methodology:

Coaching discovers “what works” in a given situation, simply and practically:

– basic principles;
– self- knowledge on personal inner strength, resources;
– the set of foundation for coaching conversations;
– to witness the progression rather than solve the problem and advise, thus keeping responsibility with the youngster and holding back self from intervention;
– to practice active listening;
– being mindful and open to co-create a coaching conversation with youngster.

 

Constellation is a system approach arranging elements in proper position or alignment. It is a group method, that can be adopted for one to one work.

– how to analyze the family context of NEET with mix cultural origins;
– how to see a family as a system;
– basic principles of constellation.

Based on previous participants needs Inception3 gives more  tools  and theory regarding  constellation  and family  context, how to deal with youngster family contexts, especially when they come from mix cultural families, including refugees, asylum seekers and migrants.

 

After the training course participants receive the EU certificate Youthpass.
