From May 14th to 21st, a training of trainers within the CONFIDENT project was held in Struga, N. Macedonia, with participants from Spain, Kosovo, Serbia, and North Macedonia.
The training focused on piloting our innovative training methodology as part of the CONFIDENT project. This project aims to address the negative impact of social media on mental health by providing a support system through youth work and non-formal education. We are committed to making a positive change and helping young people develop a healthier self-image.
During the Confident Training for Trainers, we successfully trained youth educators on how to effectively utilize the CONFIDENT methodology and implement it with the young people they work with. The CONFIDENT Methodology delves into the specific impact of social media on young people’s mental health, exploring the underlying causes of the negative effects and offering practical solutions. Throughout the training, we covered five comprehensive modules:
Module 1: Discovering the Negative Impact of Social Media: Consequences
Module 2: Discovering the Negative Impact of Social Media: Causes
Module 3: Discovering the Roots: Why Do Young People Reach for Social Media?
Module 4: Getting to Know Yourself – Who Are You Without Social Media?
Module 5: Filling the Gaps of Missing Skills
Stay tuned for more updates as we continue our journey with the CONFIDENT project. Together, we’re making a difference!
The project is co-funded by the European Union and implemented by an international consortium comprised of Ampersand from N. Macedonia, Backslash from Spain, and CONNECT International from Belgium.
