‘SPEAK UP!’ is a 6-day European training course on youth advocacy which aims to develop the competences of the pax in developing and implementing advocacy actions focussed at impacting local, regional, national or European youth policy, in particular policies affecting young refugees. The TC takes place at the Salesianum in Vienna (AT), from 27/03/2016 until 03/04/2016.
SPEAK UP!’ is a 6-day European training course on youth advocacy, through which you will learn how to build awareness raising campaign and how you can advocate for the needs of young people. We are focussing strongly on how local Don Bosco youth centres can join the effort of the Salesians and the Don Bosco Movement in catering for (young) refugees entering Europe.
We will use active learning methods throughout the training course introducing you to different human rights aspects of refugees, including an oratory afternoon with young refugees catered for by “Don Bosco Flüchtlingswerk Austria”. Next to this you will learn different actions you can take to advocacy for their needs. Towards the end of the week you will develop an own campaign, which you can carry out in your local youth centres or national youth organisation.
