VOLUNTEERING IN HUMAN RIGHTS EDUCATION
Training course for youth leaders
November 03 – 10, 2011
Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina
Volunteering in Human rights education - an active tool for personal development - is an
intercultural training course on Human Rights Education directed to youth leaders that work
with young people or for active young people that wish to work further on their selfdevelopment
in the youth work sector.
The training will take place in the City of Mostar,
Bosnia Herzegovina in November 2011, in duration of 7 days. The training will gather 10
partner organizations and 30 participants from Bosnia Herzegovina, Serbia, Croatia,
Montenegro, Albania, Italy, Hungary, Romania, Turkey, Portugal.
The aim of the training is to give to the participants new tools to work with youth and to teach
them the importance of respecting other’s rights. The project will empower youth leaders,
workers, trainers working to develop strategies and activities to address racism, xenophobia,
discrimination and gender-based forms of non respect. The participants will be
familiarised with different manuals on human rights education and discuss how to best use
them and adapt them to their local contexts and realities.
This training course will prepare young people to plan and run youth activities on Human
Rights Education especially in the frame of the Youth in Action programme. The project is also
directed to establish a bridge among the partners and other organizations active in promoting
human rights education and therefore to foster cooperation among those NGOs.
The training course facilitates intercultural dialogue and understanding.
Accommodation in shared en suite triple rooms will be provided in Pansion Lombrelle, in the
old town, some 100 meters away from the famous Mostar Old Bridge.
