VOLUNTEERS TRAINING COURSES
Every year, Energia per i Diritti Umani organizes training courses for new volunteers and for those willing to get closer to the international cooperation environment, or to deepen their knowledge in the field. The classes aim to present our association, our projects, and our point of view on cooperation in developing countries. At the same time, the trainings provide some technical bases for planning bottom-up cooperation actions in countries such as Senegal, The Gambia, and India.
As Humanists, we believe that the social change we strive for must be accompanied by the personal change of those who have the courage and the energy to engage for helping others. The training courses include theoretical and practical workshops. They aim at enhancing the emotional and relational components of the volunteers’ job, which implies working with people from different cultures, often in situations of poverty and distress.
The weekly courses will also benefit from the participation of external experts, who can provide comprehensive quality training to whoever is interested in volunteering and international cooperation.
At the end of each course, the participants will have the opportunity to join our working teams which manage the projects. They will have the chance to travel to Senegal, The Gambia, or India to experience real bottom-up cooperation actions in developing countries.
The 36° training course 2020 took place from October 20 to November 10 with a blended approach (online and in our headquarters) in compliance with Covid-19 prevention measures.
