Talent Match Coaches attend International Training

Posted on

On 7th-15th March 2015 two of our Talent Match Coaches Helena Kiely and Sophia Warhurst attended a 7 day training course hosted by K.A.N.E. Youth Centre in a place called Kalamata in Greece.


Youth workers, members, volunteers and staff of youth organisations from Croatia, Jordan, Egypt, Poland, Portugal, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Tunisia, Romania, Ireland and Greece met to exchange best practice and promote the significance of youth work and the use of non-formal learning.


The Programme was action packed and intense with the participants working together to produce presentations, deliver workshops and hold debates on many international issues.

  Our Talent Match Coaches did us proud by presenting their international peers with Fish and Chip Crisps and Penguin bars at an Intercultural evening!

All participants on the course visited the KYTTARO Therapeutic Community, a truly inspiring live in facility for people suffering from drug or alcohol addiction. The Centre is an emotionally secure environment in which members can develop their abilities and learn to handle difficulties in new ways.


The coaches immensely enjoyed their time away and hope to remain in contact with all the international youth workers they met and possibly involve Really NEET in some international projects in the future…
