From June 21-27, 2019, Syunik-Development NGO is organizing a Training of Trainers (ToT) on conflict analysis, management, transformation, mediation and resolution for young leaders and beginner facilitators from Armenia, Georgia and Ukraine as well as for ethnic minorities living in these countries (10 participants will be selected from each country). Syunik-Development NGO will select the Armenian participants, the Georgian partner organization Youth for Diplomatic Engagement will select the Georgian participants, and the Ukrainian partner organization Centre for Euroinitiatives will select the Ukrainian participant based on the developed criterias.
The training will be held in the LucyTour Hotel Resort, located in the Vayots Dzor Region of Armenia.
The project aims at promoting a common peace vision in Eastern Europe: Armenia, Georgia and Ukraine and prepare youth leaders to serve as trainers by equipping them with the necessary skills and knowledge to lead and facilitate conversations on conflict analysis, management, transformation, mediation and resolution.
Cultural tours of Armenia will also be a component of the project.
Undergraduate students, young community leaders, and volunteers involved in community or NGO works as well as motivated newcomers to the field are eligible to apply. Applicants must be between 21 and 35 years old.
After a review of participant’s submitted documents, short-listed candidates will be contacted for an interview. Interviews will be done either face-to-face or long distance (via Skype). Selected participants will be required to:
- Participate in all sessions of the ToT (a one week duration),
- Hold at least one seminar in their communities as a training alumni
All costs will be covered by the project organizers. The working language of the ToT is English.
