Besides working at EkoCentrum, our volunteers also cooperate with different non-profit organizations with the aim to improve their skills and share their knowledge. One such form of collaboration takes regularly place at Wrocławskie Centrum Wspierania Organizacji Pozarządowych SEKTOR 3.
SEKTOR 3 is, among other things, organizing traineeships for high school students in Germany. To goal of the project is, besides from allowing the students to learn a new profession, also to get them acquainted with a new culture, new people and to go out of their comfort zone.
A workshop can be an engaging, energetic and interactive platform to generate new ideas, sharing experiences, improve processes and change the way people interact.
At the beginning of September 2017. educators at EkoCentrum organized a two day training on assertive communication for the EVS volunteers. The goal of the workshop was to adopt new tools that would help the participants to communicate more efficiently and to improve their interpersonal skills. Gatherings such as these are an excellent opportunity for knowledge exchange and with engaging training environment the group dynamics also becomes more stimulating.
