Instant workshops (838 hits)
What can you get in a workshop? Maybe a job, or mood to work? You probably heard this word before, workshop, but nobody should ask what it is exactly, right? Maybe you took part in a workshop, or something similar, but you have no clue how to organize one such thing? What could be a good topic, or how people will get to know each other, who will take part and how they will find out about it? You probably have more questions. The good news is that this book answers a lot of these, at least we wrote it like that. You’ll find out what’s a workshop, what it’s good for and why. This handbook is a guide for all these, because it helps you understand, organize and carry out fun work together, an experience you’ll use in the future.
Evaluation tools (759 hits)
Evaluation often seems pointless, additional work and without any value. But: do you believe that a quality evaluation can improve your work efficiency in a remarkable way? In youth organisations we usually evaluate meetings, project and team work, trainings, personal growth and organisation as a whole. The book in front of you brings answers to your questions about what evaluation is and how to get it started. On top of all it brings you a set of tools that you can use in your work!
Leaders Challenge (579 hits)
In front of you is a Leader’s Challenge. A collection of group games, team buildings (games for team building) and simulation exercises, which can help you and your group in raising awareness and acquiring competences, necessary for leading groups of young people. And not only these! Soon you will realize that the competences, needed for a youth leader, are very much alike the competences, needed for a successful business man, a father or a director.
