Inception 3 journey in Latvia and Slovenia
Inception3 started with twenty-six youth workers and educators from Latvia, Slovenia, Croatia, Estonia, Poland, Turkey, Slovakia and Lithuania meeting in the Inception 3 training course this summer in Latvia. The main objective of the training course was to raise awareness of the challenges NEET youngsters from mixed cultural backgrounds face in their realities, including refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants.
Participants explored various coaching tools and family constellations as a way of working with those youngsters with the aim of including them into the society and increasing the openness of the local community towards diverse cultures.
In the period after the training course, the participants organized all together 25 workshops in their local communities to share their experience and the knowledge gained during the training course with their colleagues, teachers and educators, youth workers and NGO members. As a result, ninety-seven professionals learned about coaching and constellations, as well as about their practical application in their work with the youngsters.
Representatives from each partner organization gathered experiences and data from other project participants in their countries, and presented them in a follow-up meeting in Slovenia in August 24-26. During the meeting, each representative presented the results achieved in the period between the training course and the follow-up meeting. They also shared their own personal experiences of working with coaching and constellations, asked questions about specific cases during the supervision meeting, and worked on their own personal cases and questions.
Participants share their experience of paticipating in the project:
“I feel like i finally understand causes why youngsters become Neet, and also my role in working with them.”
As well “it was fantastic and totally different than the ones I have attended during my career. Hundred per cent practical and hands-on methods. Little theory and a ton of practical work- love it! I am looking forward to more projects like this.”
