• A group of 15 young people coming from Malta, Romania and Italy met for a 4-day training course intended to help them in their involvement in youth work. During their daily life, these participants dedicate a number of hours every week to facilitate and organise activities in the youth groups they lead in their respective countries. These young leaders, all leaders within the Catholic Action, constantly seek further training so that they can provide a better service to the young people.

    This OWLS (Opportunities + Willingness + Learning = Success) training seminar took place in Iasi, Romania between the 20th and 24th August, and was the fifth and final part of a larger project which was initiated in Italy in 2018 and continued in Malta earlier this year. This project is being financed by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union.

    All the workshops delivered during this training course were a mixture of tools that can be used in their youth organizations. Before participating in OWLS, most of the participants did not have the knowledge about the different opportunities available for youth. The workshops and sessions helped them to increase their knowledge, which they can also spread back home with their youth.
