From December 11 to 14 Krimulda Evangelical Lutheran church will host foreign guests from Spain and Romania. They are the partners of the international project “Mobile Program for Youth Learners” implemented by the congregation from the Romanian Scout Society and Saint Gabriel School in Spain. The aim of the project is to develop a non-formal education program for the development of youth leadership, therefore during the meeting the participants will discuss and discuss the development of the curriculum, study plan and methodology so that the program can be implemented and approved within a year and a half.
Sandija Zalupe, a member of the Krimulda congregation council, the author and manager of the project idea, and Solvita Andzane, the chairwoman of the congregation council, will welcome the international partners. Evangelist Jazeps Bikse will also address the guests.
It should be reminded that the curriculum will be aimed at young people between the ages of 13 and 15, helping them to develop skills aimed at the development of a young person as a responsible, motivated personality endowed with leadership qualities. The training content will be based on basic Christian values in order to eliminate any kind of discrimination and promote youth equality, acceptance of diversity, civic activity and the desire to participate in public processes. Within the framework of the project, the curriculum will be implemented in the Sunday school classes of the Krimulda congregation and in the training of Romanian scouts.
The curriculum will support educators in working with young people. It will be possible to use and adapt it in both formal and non-formal education of young people in various sectors, including religion, culture and education. The curriculum will be freely available in the digital environment in Latvian, Spanish, Romanian and English.
The project is co-funded by the European Union. The project is implemented in the “Erasmus+” program in cooperation with the Agency for International Programs for Youth.
