Description: First ADR Kit is a cross-sector cooperation between organisations active in the fields of intercultural communication, conflict management, active citizenship and youth participation. The aim of the partnership is to create new educational methods of teaching Alternative Dispute Resolution (mediation, negotiation, conciliation, dispute boards) with the use non-formal education tools and introduce them to the youth work. The project is dedicated to 3 target groups. The first one is a team of 20 youth trainers who undergo an intense training programme on the topic of Alternative Dispute Resolution delivered by professional mediators and conflict managers. The second group consists of youth leaders and young professionals who will participate and evaluate the training courses developed and delivered by the youth trainers. The third group includes partner organisations, professional ADR institutions, educational facilities, teachers and representatives of labour market who can use and implement the new methods in their work. The core belief is that, in order to solve and prevent conflicts, it's important to start by educating young people and equipping them with practical tools to guide them through the challenges of the modern world. The intellectual output of this project will include: one research on ADR education in the 5 partner countries; a set of training activities delivered by professionals in mediation and youth work; 2 brand new simulation games on conflict resolution; 10 original workshop scenarios and an easy-to-use handbook on ADR in youth projects. The project started in February 2016 and will last until June 2018. Many transnational events took already place in the partnert countries and the last one will be the final Evaluation Meeting in Poland in May 2018. Beside the transnational events, Vicolocorto organized some local events, like the workshop tests in Senigallia and in Pesaro (May 2017), and will be organizing also a dissemination conference in March 2018.
