Sobre la organización de acogida
The principal aim of the hosting organization is to spread the intercultural dialogue and multilinguism in the city of Palermo, among children and adults, teachers and families. Our educative centre is a place where the local community can exchange and share experiences. Italian and foreign people can meet each other and compare their cultures, languages, lifestyles and everyday lives.
The association promotes the different languages and cultures of the world, especially through the first multilingual library for children in Palermo. The books collected are thousands, written in more than 45 different languages. Since 2013, it has been opened, in collaboration with another association, a multicultural kindergarten with children between 18 months and 5 years old from different countries. Children are everyday involved in educative regular activities, from Monday to Saturday, from 7.30 to 16. The other activities, in collaboration with schools and organizations, are creative workshops and language courses for children, young people and adults and multicultural events, involving people from many countries, especially immigrated people.
Since 2010, the association has organized training courses aimed at promoting different languages and cultures and multicultural education, through artistic and non-verbal methods and storytelling techniques, involving youth workers, teachers and educators.
Sobre el curso
This is a training course, lasting 6 days, which takes place in Palermo and involving youth workers from 3 different countries: Italy, Greece and Spain. The countries involved are characterized bymigrant flows and refugees among the highest in Europe, problematic intercultural cohexistence, troubled situations on the borders.
The main idea of this project is to face the situation of difficult social and cultural inclusion that characterizes today’s Europe and to make easier and more efficient the work of youth workers who act in the field of social exclusion. During the training course new methods and instruments will be proposed to help the process of social inclusion, especially in the first phases; youth workers will have the opportunity to gain experience and reflect on the issue of equality and integration of young people with fewer opportunities, especially migrants and refugees. In particular, the training course is focused on offering professional instruments to youth leaders, to be aware of their educational approach. The basic concepts are: the comparison of exclusion with inclusion; stimulating new initiatives, ideas and projects for young people, active civil position against the passive one; the aim is to develop and improve the skills and competences of youth workers in Europe so that they become able to offer young people better options to prevent or reduce exclusion, to support newly arrived young people, and to provide educational strategies aimed at to build social and cultural integration.
Non-formal education is the adopted methodology: the competences will be achieved through roleplays, round tables, outdoor activities, creative workshops. Participants will repeat the innovative activities and methods learned with young people in disadvantaged situations, offering new and effective opportunities to express themselves, to be recognized and valued, to participate in an inclusive social process.
These new “routes” are able to produce active involvement of youth worker and provide adequate preparation to reduce social conflicts and to promote active and appropriate participation in the sector in which we operate and the context in which we live.
The long-term benefits are higher professional quality of the youth workers; mutual understanding, union and respect towards cultural, linguistic and social diversity in the local community, the improvement of work skills and the activation of a greater effort by all stakeholders in the development of strategies high quality inclusion and greater commitment to the implementation of these policies across Europe.
