Well-Being and resilience are two important aspects while working with people. During this 5 day training course, youth workers will explore different movement- and connection based methods and styles from 4 experienced trainers and from each other.

The main aim of this training course is to explore creative tools and resources to facilitate connection, resilience and wellbeing in youth work. Participants will experience different tools themselves, reflect and exchange about their experience and transfer them to their own work context and their daily life. Especially in times of crisis, it is important to not only focus on physical but also mental health of people. This can be seen as an act of solidarity to yourself and others and we want to explore and discuss how these topics affect community life.

As non formal trainers and youth workers, the trainer team of this course, Yolanda, Ohiane, Mohammed and Dina all come together with different backgrounds and experiences but with a common goal and vision: to use creative and movement-based tools as a means to help you to connect with your inner child, to connect with others around you and implement playfulness and transfer these elements in your work.


  • Developing competences for emotional management, resilience, connection and well-being in youth work and connecting these to the topic of solidarity and community.
  • Promoting a learning platform in which participants can share ideas, reflections and needs.
  • Facilitating the creation of mutual support networks among the participants, organisations and associated promoters, developing strategies for future projects in wellbeing, connection and resilience.
