The motivation to carry out this project is to create an innovative, creative approach to the capacity building and learning of youth in the world of non-formal education and specifically within the EU supported programmes for youth, learning, and mobility. That is to embed together in the trainer and youth workers’ portfolio the competences of a graphic facilitator and a coach. There have already been extensive programmes preparing and developing trainers, or coaches, or graphics facilitators. In our view, these three sets of competencies are a multifaceted aspect of an ideal modern educator and youth worker.
