Pomoc deci organised local training sessions for youth in Prijepolje, Kucevo, Vranje, Belgrade and Novi Sad. A total of 222 young people and those that work with them participated.
Using the GIRLACT materials, participants (and more than 2/3 being girls) were able, over a period of three days, to learn about gender equality, prejudice, stereotypes, healthy and unhealthy relationships, and how to address uncomfortable topics. The training also included various techniques such as active learning, group work, problem analyses, nonverbal communication, as well as SWOT and SMART analyses. In the final part of the training, participants were able to learn how to plan and lead the development of a social and financial project.
