YES SI Project: Newsletter 2

LATEST NEWS from the Project!

From the 16th to the 18th of May 2023 the training activity of the YES-SI project took place in Larissa, Greece. The host organisation, Innovation Hive, provided great hospitality to all partners. Trainers from Greece, Germany, Italy, Spain and Ireland had the opportunity to test the YES-SI modules and prepared themselves to pass on the “changemaking” skills to young people.


The short-term training aimed to:

  • equip participants with the knowledge and competences needed

  • to undertake the pilot phase, adopt and then implement the project’s training approaches and materials

  • test all YES SI training modules themselves and have an overview on how to take the training of trainers at larger scale beyond the project lifetime

Co-creation of the Modules

For the development of the training workshops, partners co-worked in order to create the YES-SI training modules. These modules aim to provide empowerment for young people to become active citizens using their potential and visions for a better future for creative problem solving of social challenges. Each module is consisted with good practices and resources, to facilitate the organisation of social innovation activities in the community.

Train the trainers phase

Day 1 & 2:

In the first two days of the training, participants tested 4 different modules. During this

phase, participants not only tested the modules themselves but also gained clarity on the purpose of each one. Additionally, real-time updates were provided by each trainer

Day 3:

On the 3rd day, the trainers provided participants with interactive sessions regarding

fake news, shared tips and guidelines on how to utilize the YES-SI workshops and offered support for participants with fewer opportunities and special needs.

What's Next?

What is to follow after this training of the trainers? You will meet our role models that will inspire the next changemakers. Be ready to check our exciting videos that will be

released soon, featuring young changemakers sharing their inspiring “changemaking” stories. Then the YES-SI Labs will take place in Greece, Germany, Spain and Italy, where the modules will be tested by the future young changemakers.
