MotivAction is 5 days TC for social actors as the driving force in the youth sector to gain practical competences for exploring the motivation process. The training gives the skills, knowledge and attitude to raise the level of sense of initiative among young people, including NEETs and young people with fewer opportunities on local and European level.

MAIN GOAL

The main goal of the course is to gain practical competences to create new youth initiatives and to support social actors, as the driving force in raising the level of Youth Initiative among young people on local and European level. The added value of this training will be gained through increasing the level of motivation and self-initiative among the participants.

WHAT IS MOTIVACTION

During this training the participants develop their reflection process on the self-motivation successful stories and on how to increase local youth initiatives. The participants will work with a tool to increase the awareness of what intrigues us to be and to stay motivated by in- and outside triggers. Through self-reflection instruments the social actors can better define the different angles of the motivation and use it in their work process with the young people. The main question is how motivation can orient us, lead us to the stage of real action and how through self-reflection we can stay encouraged.
