Training on “Leadership” for Seniors and Volunteers
On the 21st and 22nd of November, we have successfully organized and delivered the training on “Leadership” to the members of the Council of Seniors, as well as to other interested seniors from Leova rayon and on the 28th and 29th of November the same training was delivered to the volunteers of our organization, that were selected to participate in the project activities. The events took place within the project “Jointly with the experience of SENIORS, Your voice escalates”, financed by the European Union and the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, with the support of the “Representation of Konrad Adenauer Foundation in the Republic of Moldova”.
Due to the fact that, among seniors and young volunteers, there were present persons with initiative and, actually, the most active ones, the training on “Leadership” was considered of great interest and usefulness, determining all participants to express their positions and proposals during the activities and practical content presented according to the training.
The most appreciated and interactive was the group activity, during which the four created groups of participants were given the task to identify and solve an actual society problem. During this exercise, each group made presented its topic and other groups were stepping in with proposals, arguments, comments and innovative positions. So, in the end, the time planned for this exercise was exceeded twice. In light of this, both Seniors and Volunteers displayed and demonstrated their leadership capacities.
Both Seniors and Volunteers are looking forward to get involve in the project’s activities, specifically to mobilize, inform society members on their rights, opportunities and benefits if getting involved in monitoring and participating in decision-making processes in the communities they live.
