‘Coaching is a way to effectively empower people to find their own answers and encourage and support them on their path to make live-giving and life-changing choices.’

The general objective of the ’empowerment through coaching’ training is to train and empower educators (youth workers, youth leaders, EVS mentors,...) in using coaching techniques and competences in an Erasmus+/Youth in Action context (grassroots youthwork, youth exchanges, EVS framework etc.)

Why coaching?

„Coaching is a development process in which an individual is supported while achieving a specific professional or personal competence, result or goal„ (source Wikipedia:

Coaching as a method for personal and professional development has become increasingly important and valued in different areas of society and many professionals either have their personal coach and/or coach themselves as part of their own professional role.

In European youthwork, the importance of being able to support ‚learners’ individually – whether at the grassroots, everyday level or within a European youth exchange or the EVS framework - has become more and more evident.

With the 'Empowerment through coaching’ training, we want to offer people, active within E+/Youth in Action, the opportunity to practice coaching skills and techniques they can use in their own work and projects to empower the individuals they work with to take more ownership of their life paths and choices.

The process of the training will start with empowering participants themselves! This will happen through practicing coaching techniques directly with each other - using real life issues and choices participants are facing either on a professional or personal level.


The training methodology will be:
• Based on non-formal education principles
• Encourage self-directed learning
 and learning-by-doing,
• Include individual and group reflection,
Rely on peer-to-peer learning and experience sharing


You, as a participant, will

• Learn how to use coaching techniques to support learning and growth in non-formal learning activities

• Learn some of the basics of coaching in terms of coaching skills and techniques

• Reflect about what coaching really is - and where it can be used

• Practice coaching and experience being coached

• Exchange about the opportunities and challenges there are for you in your youth work context to empower the young people you work with through coaching techniques

• Get ready to empower young people and colleagues back home using coaching techniques to support their non-formal learning

Your profile as a participant
