1A Workshop

Aim: To create a training method for human rights and have trainers educated to apply this method.

During this first workshop content and frame of the human rights training are to be discussed. The main question will be the point of agreement, regarding human rights that are substantial to all participants in the workshop. Those human rights will form the basis for human rights training.

1B Intermediate /National Phase

Aim: Trainers practice the method in their local communities.

After the first workshop each participating organization will implement the before developed training concept with youth in their local communities. The focus will be on hr training but the trainers should try to include their intercultural experiences made during the 1. workshop to sensitize youth for the differences and problems in an intercultural setting. The training can either be done in schools, youth clubs or wherever suitable. But it should be guaranteed that not only youth from the own organization but also young people are reached who would normally not be in contact with such trainings. The exact size of the target group is up to every organization but we recommend at least 20 youth and if possible to do the training more than one time ie. with different groups of youth (eg. two different school classes).
After the courses the trainers should sit together and evaluate the course together in a written way: What were the difficulties? What was missing? What worked out well and what bad? What should been changed the next time?

2A Workshop

Aim: To evaluate the method from the experiences made in the 1. intermediate phase and if necessary fine tune the results. Based on the results of the national trial run the second international workshop will be used for a mid-term-evaluation and - if necessary - for a re-definition of the concept of human rights training. Issues of the evaluation should be applicability of our training concept, opportunities of implementation, effects on national youth and sustainability, country-specific problems concerning the implementation etc. The aim is to make it better!

2B Intermediate Phase

Aim: To select youth from the 1. intermediate phase to take part in the 3.International workshop.

Former youth participants who took part in the national trainings in the 1. intermediate phase should be encouraged to apply for being trained as Multipliers.

3A Workshop

Aim: To educate youth from the 1.intermediate phase to be able to work as peer-educators with the hr method in their countries.

Young people (17-21 years of age) will be trained as Multipliers. Thereby they attain the ability for working as peer-educators with young people in their home countries. The training will be done by the 24 trainers from the previous workshops who will teach different basic training skills to the youth as also give them the opportunity to learn how to teach some of the hr-methods to their peer groups. In the beginning an extra big space will be provided to enable the youth to get acquainted with the intercultural setting.

3B Intermediate Phase

Aim: The youth gain experience as trainers in the method in their local communities.

Following workshop 3. the youth start to train as peer-to-peer educators starts (e.g. in school classes, youth groups etc.). They should have supervision and assistance by the trainers.

4 Workshop

Aim: To evaluate the whole project and make the training manual printable.

The attaining trainers will have the possibility to evaluate the outcome of the training of the peer-educators and the project in general.
Last changes will be made on the training manual to have it in a printable form at the end of the training. Follow-up projects can be arranged on the basis of the outcomes of the whole project.

5 Follow-up

In case of successful experiences in training the results should be recorded for being a resource to schools and other organisations to provide support in spreading this new method of handling international human rights in practice. The trainers as also the peer-educators are expected to go on with training youth and other trainers in the method.
