"Youth Worker Circus" Training Course Was Held in Gelos, France on 19-26 August 2019
The main goal of the training was to teach the participant the basics of various circus skills such as partner and group acrobatics, juggling, diabolo, balloon modelling… and show them how to prepare and implement a circus workshop, which they can use as a tool in their work with youngsters. Circus activities were used as a form of pedagogy in teaching and in non-formal education.
The training course hosted 30 participants from 13 countries (France, Netherlands, Slovenia, Greece, Romania, Spain, Italy, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Poland, Turkey, Latvia, and Macedonia). During the 7-day training course, participants discovered how to use circus pedagogy as a method of youth work, and they were equipped with knowledge on how to prepare and implement a basic circus pedagogy workshop on their own.
