The 6 partners involved in the learning mobility, JUMP (IT), Municipio de Lousada (PT), FACE (MK), Ecocenter Alapítvány (HU), AKTYVISTAI (LT), IED (GR) had the opportunity to meet abroad after an intensive and productive phase of online cooperation to get a better sense of the project, the main target group and strengthen team building putting up a united front to tackle future challenges.
The activities, lectures, training sessions and lessons in the agenda were carefully evaluated and designed to meet the unique objectives of M.O.T.H.E.R. through non formal and outdoor education, coaching and mentoring practices with the goal of increasing the quality of the project and assuring an effective guidance for the beneficiaries. The GROW model, the OARS are just some of the useful tools the expert Alessia Simonetti outlined, important insights for the future e-coaches who started to learn how to shape their mentoring and coaching style.
