The expected impact on participants: 1.Get empowered, increase their self-esteem and confidence and feel encouraged to continue working with children and young people with fewer opportunities, with more strength and ardency, feeling that their work is being appreciated; 2. Acquire or enhance important skills, including leadership, mentoring, coaching, conflict resolution, and team-building, which will increase their competences as professionals and will ease their work with those in need; 3. Raise awareness and enhance their knowledge in some concepts, which even though they are widely used, are usually perceived differently, including "poverty", "social exclusion", "young people with fewer opportunities", an impact which will increase their eager to help these children and young people who are in great need for support; 4. Acquire the necessary skills, expertise and knowledge on how to use the tools in their work.The potential longer term benefits of the project include among others a) more workers/leaders/volunteers will benefit, get empowered and feel more confident about their work, as participants will be able upon return to their organization to present and train the new non-formal learning methods learn during the course, b) children and young people with fewer opportunities will benefit in the long-term from the new non-formal tools participants will become familiar and adopt in their daily work, c) new Erasmus Plus projects will be prepared and implemented based on ideas expressed during the Training Course, building on the project's results, d) other young people throughout Europe will be inspired by the videos "Stand Up Together!" and the flash-mob produced and disseminated, empowering them to either develop an Erasmus Plus project or participate in one and finally e) more youth workers/leaders/volunteers throughout europe will benefit from the Toolkit developed by all participants, during the course with non-formal learning methods for empower and self-development but also for skill enhancement.
