Description of event: BACKGROUND

We are opening a call for 5 trainers to deliver 2 training for trainers each for the partners of the project The 25 Percent, led by the European Youth Forum. As part of the project, each of our 10 partners need to organise a set of local and national events where a 90 minutes workshop on youth participation and advocacy is delivered. The workshop is developed by three experts of the collective Organising for Change. The 5 trainers from the YFJ PoT will attend a training for trainers delivered by Organising for Change and then replicate the same training two times.

Project partners are:
-Spanish Youth Council
-Austrian National Youth Council

-European Disability Forum

The T4T will be delivered online in the month of June and early July.
The trainer from the YFJ PoT will liaise with the two partner organisations to identify dates for the T4T which are suitable for both parties. Trainings for the five National Youth Councils would ideally be delivered in their national language.
