How do we act

How do we educate young people?

We educate in the competence of the future, which very soon are going to become especially valuable on the job market, due to the very quick changes, which are taking place right now.

We organize recurrent workshops for schools. The workshops are conducted by a team of international volunteers. 

The cross-cultural competence workshop is our most important one but we have also developed materials, which allow in a an accessible and attractive to teenagers manner master such skills as: 

  • project management
  • responsible leadership
  • presentation skills.

We educate leaders who respect diversity, understand the benefits of openness , and promote it in their own communities. We would like for the participants of the events organized by WrOpenUp to get involved in social causes, that is why we help them to develop their skills and become better leaders. We show young people that every person can take matters into their own hands and change the world for the better, make it more friendly and open.

“Stop Youth Radicalization”

The project “Stop Youth Radicalization” (StopR) will support youth organisations in 5 countries (Hungary, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Poland and Czech Republic) and across Europe in recovering and fostering the intercultural dialogue across diverse youth communities. The project aims to enhance the abilities of youth workers to stop and prevent radicalization among young people in the EU in a timely and effective fashion.

StopR will develop a quality mark, which will help recognize the best methodologies in this area of youth work. As the problem of radicalization has spread through the European Union, many methodologies have been created and employed to prevent and stop these efforts among youth. It is important for them to find recognition and an audience resulting in increased efficiency (as youth workers start using the established good practices instead of developing their own) and transparency. The quality mark will be awarded to the methodologies, which answer a set of criteria, to be developed by the project partners.
