Our Trainers4Life are young proven leaders who are experts in creative facilitation and our youth empowerment model. We have contracted them to train the Champions4Life, the young people who deliver the Journey4Life in schools and communities.
About the Trainers4Life
All over the world
The Trainers4Life community consists of 34 trainers from 15 countries. This includes our newest batch of 14 youth leaders from 11 countries worldwide who we trained in 2021 together with our global team of Master Trainers: RedZebra. The new countries where we will now have trainers are Malawi, Ethiopia, Burundi, Senegal, Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine.
Addressing the daily realities of young people
Our Trainers4Life provide training to local peers on creative empowerment tools and techniques. Youth sexuality is a complex issue and a taboo in many countries, especially when dealing with different social norms in diverse countries. So our trainers co-create and contextualize the Journey4Life with our local partners, addressing the daily realities of young people in a practical way, in each country we work.
Online and offline sessions
The Trainers4Life are experienced facilitators, they deliver sessions online and in-person at national and international conferences and events for Dance4Life. They also provide other types of technical support to our partners, for example storytelling workshops and advice on peer-led approaches and curricula.
