Facilitating a session on something very simple

We are conducting a Training of Trainers programme for bright young people on the concepts of Active Global Citizenship, under our Citienship Education programme. The residential workshop will start on Friday (3rd of April) evening (after work), and run till Sunday (5th) evening somewhere in Colombo. 

The TOT is aimed at young people, activists and youth in civil society organizations who are engaged in or interested in engaging in civic education (citizenship education) for young people. The program would introduce a broad range of topics including issues related to gender, peace, conflict, governance and also would consist of skills building sessions on facilitation skills and working with youth.

The participants would also get a chance to take a first hand look at a resource pack on citizenship education compiled by Beyond Borders and apply it in the work in their communities. The resource pack is a compilation of tools and exercises which can be used for workshops and sessions on various themes, which fall under Active Global Citizenship.

The applicants must be under the age of 26, must have an interest in civic education and must commit to conduct follow up workshops in their communities for young people after the training program with. They are also welcome, and encouraged to join Beyond Borders as volunteers following the programme.

As only a very limited number of slots are currently available, if you’re interested send us an email to radhi[at]beyondborders.lk.

 To apply directly, please fill in this form ASAP. We are finalizing selections by Monday.
